Summary: I remember playing this and all in the series many years ago on the PC so I am pleasantly surprised how good the graphics are. After all this is Nintendo. My only gripe is that the characters do not speak. All conversations are done via balloon encased text. which does spoil it but that is probably down to the fact I have played it on the PC. As a hand held version though it is good.
Summary: It was no Longest Journey but it was close... was a bit frustrating sometimes when you wanted a hint so you would click for one and they gave you a hint on an action you had already done so I ended up with far more hints used then what was needed. Overall I couldn't put it down most days (which left me very tired for work the following day). Only annoying thing was I had finished it within a week and the end was a bit silly but...
Summary: Broken sword is a great game both pc and ds version. The game is made up of little puzzles and the storyline is a very complex and compeling. I'd say this game can be played by children 10 over and a good game throughout. Although there is no voice dialogue unlike the PC version, this doesnt matter as it utilises the DS's ability to show two things at once on the two screens and includes scenes which were not included in the original, so much more to do.
Summary: I thoroughly enjoyed this game. The plot was interesting. The controls easy to use. I haven't given it 5 stars only because I wish it had more puzzles. ( I loved the Professor Layton games). I highly recommend this game.
Summary: I absolutely loved this game and it's sequel on the Playstation and PC (newer sequels not so much - they never had the same magic) and look forward to this being as good. I have only just started playing it and really enjoyed the first added part, introducing Nico to the story early. The one thing that is lacking for me though is the voices, but I'm positive it will not spoil the overall experience.
Summary: I loved this game, just having played the Professor Layton games I was looking for something similar, this is so different and i thoroughly enjoyed the linkage between the two characters. The game takes you from country to country finding the clues, the animation is good and keeps your attention. Highly recommended.
Summary: I am in the over 60's age group, and I enjoyed this game, very easy to play and when I was stuck, I went on the internet and looked on a Walkthrough for clues. Very easy to understand, and play. Before I bought this game I looked for other peoples reviews, which is important, when selecting a game. Buying from Amazon is a lot cheaper than going into a shop.

Summary: I have played several games where you re just hunting for hidden items and had got pretty tired of that format, and so I was pleased to find that this was a puxxle types game in a slightly more thoughtful format. I quickly got the hang of the game play, and found the hints to be useful - and at times necessary! Only thing for me was that it seemed to come to rather an abrupt end! Almost as if the makers had been told to 'wrap it up quick, no time to dd any more'!
Summary: A good play for all those nostalgic players. The new puzzles fit in well with the old story, although I didn't really much care about learning more about Nico's past. George is still quite a funny character to play. The controls using the DS are easy to use and learn to you although a bit annoying at times where the object you want to select is just below the inventory icon and you select that instead.
