To much talking
26 April 2013
Summary: I had bought this game because it was suposed to be like professor layton, but there is way to much talking in it. Even more than Professor Layton. If I wanted to read a story I would have gotten a book game.
Summary: Cindy is right. The two are one in the same. I received both as gifts thinking that, like the Professor Layton collection, this was a sequel to the Forbidden Memories. Nope! Different packaging but same game. I gave it an extra star because I do enjoy the puzzles. A lot more yapping than necessary, but the puzzles are good. My favorites are the hidden picture and minesweep. There is also a lot of algebra type of puzzles.
Summary: I wanted a ds game for my nearly 7 year old, that he could play without needing lots of help from us. He can read beautifully so i saw the age 3 recommendation and thought this would be ideal. As it turns out, most of the mini puzzles are much too complicated for him and so he needs help every few minutes! The only ones he can do well by himself so far are the visual ones.
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.
