Summary: There is a big 3 on the box and you might think this means it is very easy. It isn't. Some of the mental maths involved is quite high level. However most problems are quick to solve and there are a lot of similar puzzles. I give it 3 as a comparison against Prof Layton however given the relative costs that is fair enough.
Summary: bought this for my mother as a christmas pressie she likes this sort of thing started off great but then she found some of the puzzles very hard she was forever asking me for help i even found it very challenging if you liked proffessor layton games you probably won't enjoy it as much
Summary: Before I purchased this game, I read the previews, and most said that this was much the same as Professor Layton's game, and they were right! Some of the answers I was stuck on, I went on the internet and looked at the answers, but it did not say "Why" or "how" the answer was found, as in the Prof.,Laytons games. If you liked the Professor Laytons games, then you will like May's Mysteries, otherwise I should spend your money on something else.
Summary: Like most of this type of game, it's only a mystery if you can't solve it, if you can and it seems easy (as in this case) then the game tends to disappoint. The game was in good condition and well packed and I would have no qualms about ordering again from the seller.
Summary: As mentioned by most other reviewers, this is a Layton type set up, in the way the game works and the content. That's where the similarities end. Thankfully I didn't buy the game expecting another Layton, just a puzzle game to while away a few hours here & there. To keep things neat I've given a list of pros' & cons: Pro's: ~the range of puzzles is better than Layton. ~the bonus puzzles are varied and there are a lot of them.
