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: I have played every Professor Layton game up to this point, so I know what I'm talking about when I say that this one isn't quite as good. However, this may just be my personal opinion, as this one contained considerably more visual and linguistic puzzles (I'm a math/science person). The story, as usual, is a little strange, but I feel like they've gotten less believable as the games have continued.
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: I always look forward to new Professor Layton games because they're such great fun. Oftentimes the reasons characters give you puzzles are ridiculous, but the games are great anyway. They're just a little bit sci-fi to help create the mystery.
Summary: If you have played and enjoyed the other Prof Layton games then you will want to add this one to your collection. The dapper professor and his faithful apprentice Luke take you through a series of puzzles relating to the mystery of who or what is destroying Luke's home village. You will meet charmingly eccentric characters and be entertained by the story.
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 am an intense Professor Layton fan and I own every game out so far in America. I really enjoy how in depth all of the stories are and all of the puzzles you have to solve to reach your goal. This game has a lot of new features that definitely differentiate it from the other games, but the story didn't really have that "oh my" feel to it when you find out the culprit of the crime in the game.
Summary: I am a huge fan of the Professor Layton games and I wasted no time in getting the latest installment. I was going to write a lengthy review, but found that I could sum it up as follows: Too much storytelling/dialogue, puzzles are spaced too far apart, and I miss the original duo (Layton and Luke). At first I didn't realize this game was a prequel to the previous three.
