  • Excerpt: The latest Professor Layton game goes back to the beginning. See how it all started. Professor Layton and the Last Specter is part mystery, and part Brain Age. It is astounding how well Nintendo wove those two together.

  • Excerpt: Despite the finality implied by its title, Professor Layton and the Last Specter is actually a prequel that tells the story of how Layton and his sidekick Luke first met. It follows the exact same formula of the last three Layton games, where a variety of brain teasers and puzzles are scattered...
  • Pros: Same variety of well-crafted puzzles, More dynamic animations, Great story
  • Cons: Some slightly spotty voice acting, Puppet minigame is for five-year olds, Not getting London Life if you're in Europe
