Professor Layton and the Miracle Mask review (3DS)

Excerpt: Better late than never is a great way to describe Professor Layton and the Miracle Mask , the newest puzzle-solving adventure from developer Level-5 and Nintendo. This charming 3DS game was actually a launch title in Japan, when the system debuted in February 2011.
Summary: New look, same Professor When Disney started re-releasing all their classic animated films in 3D because they like money and their classic films are really worth watching again in the theater, I wrote this review of the 3D release of Beauty and the Beast for Flixist.

Pros: Crazy amount of puzzles thanks to “Daily Download”, minigames and the actual content of the game
Cons: Layton character models were never meant to be realized in three dimensions
