In this Prequel to Professor Layton and the Curious Village, Professer Layton Meets Luke (his appretence later in the games), and his new assistant Emmy while trying to solve the mystery of the Giant Specter terrorizing a town called Misthallery, known for it's thick fog. This game plays like a normal Layton Game and the puzzle system stays the same. This Game comes first in the Layton games chronologicaly and is before the Events of Eternal Diva (Movie) but will be before Miracle Mask when that comes out.
I've played the 3 Layton adventures before this and by the end of the third, it was starting to feel samey. This one pushes it even further with just remixes of the same puzzles you've already seen multiple times. If you're into the plot - by all means, but you won't find much new here.

I have to say to, THIS GAME IS PURE AWESOMENESS! It does a good job of introducing the series (because it is the PREquel after all) Hint coins are a little more plentiful but some of the puzzles are harder balancing it out. The bonus game "London Life" is more of a game than a bonus game and I find it very fun to play after I beat the game. I recommend renting this game and keeping it for awhile.
