Summary: I can't help but say how much I love Professor Layton games. Honestly the story will never match up to the Professor Layton and the Unwound Future, but this is still great and it really leads up to the next game and makes you really wonder what's going to happen in the next installment. If you are a fan of the Professor Layton games, this is a nice addition to the collection. At first I wasn't such a big fan of the 3D characters, but it grew on me.
Summary: I received this game for free from Club Nintendo in a promotion they were having. You could get a free 3DS game when you bought a 3DSXL and Mystery Dungeon/Luigi's Mansion. ANYWAYS! I loved this game! It's full of really fun puzzles. Some are hard and some are easy but you always feel really good when you solve one on your first try without using any hint coins! The cut scenes look absolutely wonderful in 3D.
Summary: Professor Layton received a letter from an old friend, Angela Ledore, that he haven't seen in 18 years. In her town of Monte d'Or, a mysterious man called "The Masked Gentleman" have been creating havoc, by turning people to stone and burning people alive. But there was more than meets the eye and by using his deductive puzzling skills and delving into his own past, the mystery of the "Mask of Chaos" can be finally be solved.
Summary: I'll love to give 5 stars but the control of the game is really hard to use. The designer should utilize the Direction pad or the Circle pad in some puzzle solving instead of using stylus for all controls (Like rotating the poster in Puzzle 003 would be MUCH easier if it is controlled by the Circle pad). When I was in Ruin mode during Chapter 6, I uses the Circle Pad and Buttons all the time and only use stylus when I need to solve a puzzle.
Layton and Luke on 3DS looks amazing, but controls are less than ideal

Summary: This is the first Professor Layton game that is exclusively for the 3DS, and it looks amazing. The 3DS upper screen has about twice the pixels of the DS and DSi, resulting in sharp vibrant graphics, and noticeably better text as well. The 3D effects are also well done. The graphics, cut scenes, voice acting and music are all first-rate, as we have come to expect from Professor Layton games.
Summary: This is the 2nd game in the prequel series and the 5th game overall. I didn't enjoy this game as much as Azran Legacy although I enjoyed the bit where you have to guide Layton and Randall through the Azran ruins. I felt that the ending where the sand floods the town was to much like the water that floods the town in the previous game Spectres Call. Lastly I like the way that certain items can only be found during the night or day.
