Just like the other Layton games, this one too had a fantastic storyline and fun characters. However, the puzzles started to feel more repetitive this time around, and almost annoying, as they would get in the way of the adventure. For a game about puzzles, that's probably a bad thing. I found that only a few puzzles in the game were very clever / unique- most of them just felt like math questions, and it was almost as if there were only a handful of puzzle types that would just get the numbers switched around for the next one.
But then the ending comes and kind of makes up for everything. Ever.
This game is great! The puzzles are very challenging and I must admit I used the "cheat" option in game fly multiple times because I could not figure out a puzzle. I reccomend this game to anyone who is up for a challenge!
