Not only is the game fun and challenging, it is also a compelling story with true characters. The story was filled with twists and turns that I honestly did not see coming and the characters show a hidden depth that will surprise you. For the first time in this series, I actually cried. I give this game a ten out of ten. I was going to give it an eight or a nine, but the fact that the game emotionally affected me brought it up to a full ten.
Once you get started the game is really hard to put down, you just want to keep going trying to unlock the mysteries and solve puzzles!
I found this game to be much much easier than the previous puzzle games. There's not many math/number puzzles so it doesn't require you to think too hard and this game features more puzzles where they give you a set of requirements and you find out which one matches using the requirements set forward. Also I believe there are 300 hint coins, 20 of which you start with and this time around they give you 4 hints on the puzzle instead of the 3 they did in the past.
Storyline, voices and the music are wonderful as always and playing this game really feels like your watching a movie, the graphics are really good for something on the DS.
Hopefully the sequel to this game will be just as good, if you've played the previous Professor Layton games I strongly suggest you rent/buy this one too.
