Scribblenauts - 5th Cell - DS

I knew I would buy this game the first time I heard some press on it back during the last E3.  The premise of being able to write out the word for a particular object and have it appear in your game world as an aid to solve puzzles is the kind of thing that immediately captures my imagination.  So, does it live up to the hype?
