This was my first Professor Layton game, but won't be my last. It's a lot of fun, and it's great if you're looking to challenge your mind rather than your reflexes.
My only two gripes:
1. The ending to the story/mystery was kind of lame, IMO.
2. There are several infuriatingly cheap puzzles. By the time you figure it out, at the end of every puzzle there's an explanation. In these cheap ones, the explanation is usually "we never said you couldn't do THIS", and is just generally misleading. I hate puzzles like that.
Proffeser Layton and the Diabolical Box has a different feel to it then the first game Curious village. You travel aruond the areas on a train unlike the first game. Unfourntunatly once you leave a town you might never go back. Like the first game you collect items. You collect toys and tea ingrediants. Using those you can train a hamster and using the tea you can make .... well tea. Don Palo returns as a villian but is not the main villian. Who is. You'll have to play to find out

I beleive that this game's story could have used some more polish but overall I found it great. I do have the question of why every single person in this game loves puzzles for some reason, it kind of breaks the story, also some plot important scenes should have been voice acted.
