3.0 out of 5 stars not as good as the first 2, November 30, 2010

This review is from: Professor Layton and the Unwound Future - Nintendo DS (Video Game)
I don't write reviews often, only when there aren't may product reviews already or my opinion varies from the majority of reviews. I am writing this one because of the latter - I am supporting the other reviewer who gave it 3 stars. I should say that I am a fan of the Professor Layton series and have both other games. The first (Curious Village) was my favorite, followed by the Diabolical Box and lastly this one.

No need to review the story line as some have already done that. The story line is fine. The problem is that there is WAY too much dialogue (reading) this time and the puzzles are too easy. It seems that the Curious Village had the best variety of types of puzzles and they seem to be running out of new ideas each time. In this version I like the car mini game, but again I usually solve the routes in minutes - wish they were a bit more challenging. The parrot mini game is clever, but seems disproportionately hard compared to the car mini game. I prefer both of these mini games to the stupid tea one in the Diabolical Box. There is also a sticker mini game that I don't care for. It's not too easy or hard, I just think it's dumb / perhaps it's too much reading again for me in my gaming preference. As for the new "super hint" option, I guess I like the option. It's good for when my 10 yr old daughter plays. She can decide if it's worth it to buy the extra hint or not. The "super hint" really does spell out the solution for you. Before this, I was my daughter's super hint!! Now it will cost her!

Overall I'm glad I bought the game. I am a puzzle fan. I would also buy it as a gift for someone who likes the series, but if choosing only one of the 3 - go with the Curious Village. If you are tight on $$ you might want to wait for a used copy or discounted price. I think for puzzle games out there, the Layton series is the best. I will certainly by the next one in the series if there is a next one.
