Professor Layton and the Curious Village

The puzzles were fun! Some were just trick questions, but still made the game enjoyable. Too much narration that you have to read every bit of so you know what to do. Also, if you miss a puzzle, you don't know it 'til you finish the game. Puzzles can be anywhere, and unless you have a walk through guide, you'll never find them all.

this game wasn't as great as I thought it was going to be. the puzzles made me feel like I trying to solve problems on a grade school standardized test. Also, it seemed like there was a lot of unnecessary character dialogue and I spent more time tapping the stylus to get through it than I did doing the actual puzzles.

Layton Hits All the Right Notes

Professor Layton and the Curious Village is for any person who loves a little challenge. Layton, as well as his apprentice Luke, are a wonderful duo in this imaginative game that captures the mind.
The story begins as with a simple quest; go to the aid of Lady Dahlia who lives in a 'curious village' appropriately named St. Mystere. Even before you arrive, you are hit with a puzzle- not a real stumper- but one all the same. Similar puzzles will be revealed all throughout the game in a way that is not frustrating or annoying, which is good if you're a gamer who likes to play for hours on end.
The only problem I had with this game was the music- a constant never ending accordion tune that becomes a problem during puzzle solving. Otherwise, I'd say that this adventure was well worth the money.
