As I have been a huge fan of the Professor Layton series ever since The Curious Village came out, naturally I got my hands on this as soon as it came out -- for I expected the pasts of Layton's nemesis Descole (villain of The Last Specter and Miracle Mask) to be revealed as well find out more about the Azran civilization. This game did not disappoint.

Story: Professor Layton is invited by renowned archaeologist Professor Sycamore regarding a girl frozen for presumably over 1 million years. Upon their arrival at the frozen cave, the girl is found to be an emissary for an ancient and highly advanced Azran civilization. She requires 5 "keys" to unlock all the wisdom that the Azran left in their legacy. Having Layton and co. resolving mysteries around the world for Azran "keys" was a nice change to the same city setting in the previous games (save Diabolical Box). There are more twists in this than there are in the other games, to the point of using some cliched examples but were nonetheless engaging and astounding (I could never have guessed some of these developments).

Gameplay: Per the usual, there are puzzles (150 in the main game) and several minigame puzzles for the player to solve. Upon completion of those, several harder puzzles will be open. Having played through all the Layton games, I found the puzzles in this game to be tougher than the puzzles in the other games. (I also spent more time playing this game than the others). Some puzzles are worded ambiguously but most are very well-done and would provide some challenging fun. There is also the added bonus of Daily Puzzles downloadable via Wi-Fi for an entire year.

It's the game we've all been waiting for; The finale, the end of the entire sha-bang, that game of games-- Professor Layton and the Azran Legacy. And, ( get ready ) IT'S HERE!!! ( woo-hoo!)
If you couldn't tell, I've been a huge fan of this series for the longest time, ever since curious village was around. From brain-bending puzzles and loveable characters to rich storylines and beautiful art, and let's not even mention the MUSIC, the Professor Layton Series for the the DS systems are pretty much the best 'brain' games in existence.
I had pre-ordered this game a few days before it came out, and was very happy to finally have it in my possession. Shipping was fast, ( faster than expected actually) and everything was in order when it reached my house. Six days later, I had completed the story.
Okay, so if I'm such a fan and this is such a big deal, why only four stars?
Well, I can say with out hesitation, that this was indubitably a /good/ game.
But I can't say it was excellent.
Here's why.


It's really amazing to see how far these games have come graphics-wise. They get better and better with every release, and this one is no exception. The art, gameplay, and animated cut scenes were exquisite. Just-- AMAZING!! The bright, rich colors, incredible attention to detail, and slick controls really did it for me. This game is a work of art! Taking advantage of the 3ds top screen and new exploration tools, this game had some new and creative aspects with the visuals this round. On the downside, because of the setup, I felt this game was also meant to be played in 3D, and if the 3d screen gives you a headache or makes you fill sick, or for those of you who the own the 2ds system, you might not get the full blast of awesomeness.

At about 3 hours of gameplay so far, I can already say this may be my favorite title in the Layton series.

The game begins in typical Layton fashion. Layton has been invited to Froenberg, by a certain Professor Sycamore, to investigate a 'living mummy.' After an introductory puzzle or two, and a reunion with one of the series' recurring characters, the game is already well underway. It's clear that Targent, an evil organization bent on unlocking the power of the Azran Civilization (introduced towards the end of Miracle Mask), has a presence in Froenberg, as their goons are all over the place, scrambling to find Sycamore. Therefore, it becomes a 'race against time' as Layton strives to find the Professor before Targent does.

The puzzles are clever and varied, and as with the deductions of Sherlock Holmes, the solutions generally seem simple in hindsight. There's really something for everyone, from hands-on puzzles similar to the classic wooden peg game, to spotting the odd one out, and uncovering patterns.

And then there are the mini-games. Almost straightaway, a fashion game is introduced, wherein the player fulfills fashion requests by creating designs with the clothing articles they collect as they progress through the game.

In another game, you play as a squirrel, rolling a walnut to its destination while taking heed of hazards and obstacles.

There's also the streetpass-enabled scavenger hunt feature, which adds to the appeal of the investigation mode. In addition to locating puzzles and hint coins with the magnifying glass, players may locate items (e.g. a bobsled) that they may then challenge other players to find, with the reward of collectibles / unlockables.

A great start to the end of the series (this review will be updated with additional details, and perhaps a revised rating, as I experience more of the game).
