Vooks

  • Excerpt: Releasing a mere (yeah, right) eighteen months after it’s debut in Japan as a 3DS launch title, the rest of the world is now privileged to catch up with our pal Professor Layton in his latest adventure: Professor Layton and the Miracle Mask. After four title on the Nintendo DS, the first 3DS installment carries over the same great game play and puzzles as well as a decent knack for story telling.

Professor Layton and the Miracle Mask

Gamereactor

  • Conclusion: The game's still a mixture of smaller puzzle tasks packed into a exciting crime story. And even if all the Layton games work independently, there's still a continuation of character, as Mask of Miracles digs further into the lead's personality, though as a result assistants Luke and Emmy rather fade into the background this time. In the new adventure nothing is as it seems again.
  • Pros: + Nice new 3D look for the characters + Beautifully told story + Great scope + Great side quests
  • Cons: - New ideas are sometimes not explained clearly

  • Summary: A nova aventura do professor Layton dá-nos a conhecer um pouco mais sobre a sua juventude e a razão pela sua paixão pela arqueologia. Acima de tudo, continua a ser um excelente jogo de puzzles.
  • Pros: Narrativa imersiva - Fazendo jus aos anteriores capítulos da série, a narrativa revela-se imersiva e repleta de mistérios. Os eventos da nova história têm lugar um ano após Professor Layton and the Eternal Diva (o primeiro filme inspirado pela série), na cidade ficcional de Monte d’Or. O jogo arranca durante um carnaval comemorativo do 18º aniversário da cidade. Layton, o seu aprendiz Luke e a assistente Emmy foram convocados para resolver um mistério relacionado com ...
  • Cons: Uso moderado do 3D - O salto para a 3D oferece à aventura cenários com profundidade, criando um efeito agradável às animações. No entanto, o uso do 3D é apenas usado de forma cosmética nos gráficos. Os puzzles não beneficiam desta perspetiva extra, perdendo-se uma oportunidade de criar novos desafios. O facto de o jogo ter estado originalmente a ser produzido para a DS poderá explicar esta falha.

  • Summary: Una fresca e ingeniosa reinvención de los puzzles
  • Pros: Historia llena de matices con personajes memorables. Narrativa fluida y envolvente de principio a fin. Acertijos ingeniosos presentados en variados niveles de dificultad. Amplia oferta de contenido. Presentación audiovisual muy atractiva y bien ejecutada que aprovecha el efecto 3D.
  • Cons: La descripción de algunos acertijos es realmente confusa. Los diálogos tienen muy poca actuación de voz. Fuera de los acertijos diarios hay mínima rejugabilidad.

  • Conclusion: Professor Layton and the Miracle Mask er endnu en perfekt kombinationen af gode hovedbrud og en god historie, flot pakket ind i det allerede velkendte interface i verdensklasse. Opdateringen til 3DS har gjort underværker for den grafiske præsentation, men ellers er alt, som det plejer.
