Summary: The Last Specter is a good game (it's Layton afterall) but if you're familiar with the series then you will notice a slight drop in quality. The puzzles are still very fun and challenging, so there are no complaints there, but for everything considered the game just feels very short and anticlimactic. The real disappointment with this game, without spoiling anything, is the game's story.
Summary: Well, here it is: the fourth game in the series. I've just finished playing Professor Layton and the Unwound Future, so I figured, "why not just keep going?". So, here I am tackling the last game in the series that is on the old DS platform. I'm sure it'll be just as good as the previous entries, so let's dive right in! Graphics (score 8/10): By now (after playing the first three games in the series) these graphics are looking very familiar. Not that it's a bad thing!
Summary: As the fourth in a series growing more and more tired after every release, Professor Layton and the Last Specter has its work cut out for it. The big story here is the new London Life mode, which is being billed as an "100-hour RPG". But is it enough to satisfy Layton fans? Yes and no, but overall, this isn't a bad game.
Summary: I have now completed two of the Layton games completely. I will say that I enjoyed the majority of both as they give a fun story to read and partly watch while going along. In this game, I was happy that there were far more videos that the previous one that I played (I believe it is called the Curious Village). In this game, you continue to get more of the same puzzles. There are some repeats with a slight difference.
Summary: If you've played a Professor Layton game before, then this game will be no surprise to you, but that doesn't mean it's any less entertaining than the previous entries. Tons of awesome puzzles, a quirky story with nice voice acting and a nice added little 8-bit RPG called London Life. I guess I could say I knew exactly what I was going to get with this game, but I have no problem with that.
Ridiculous story, but more enjoyable puzzles than you could ask fo

Summary: Professor Layton & The Last Specter is the fourth chapter in the series, and the final installment on the Nintendo DS. Like the previous installments players can solve around 150 puzzles, all while uncovering a central mystery. The far-fetched plot of The Last Specter should come as no surprise to those who have played Layton's previous adventures. Although it is meant for all ages, it's disappointing that the series veers into the realm of total fantasy.
