However after playing this game fans can take it easy, Dead Space Extraction lives up to the brands name and makes for more than a solid addition to the Wii's mature library
Scribblenauts is quite possibly one of the most unique games to be released this year, the game is simple yet it's scope is beyond any other game before.
