Professor Layton and the Lost Future Review
1 February 2011
Excerpt: Here's a puzzle: why would a thirty-something fellow in a top hat spend all his time dragging a young boy about the streets of London? Sure, Luke might say that he's Layton's 'apprentice', but I'm pretty sure psychologists would argue it's a classic case of Stockholm syndrome. Whatever the relationship between the pair, the pre-pubescent whippersnapper plays a far more instrumental role in Professor Layton's third outing.
Excerpt: Another journey for the prolific professor…through time? Following your dreams into the world of archaeology can be something of a dangerous escapade unless you swallow pride and teach your trait to some gormless students. Indiana Jones may have a fairly dull 9-5 job, but his holidays are far more interesting than the typical tutors. A lifetime’s work in a dig site will probably only turn up a rock that kinda looks like Zippy from Rainbow.
Pros: Another batch of fantastic puzzles, Beautiful animation with respectable voiceovers
Cons: Mini-games still aren’t exactly on par with the rest of the challenges
Excerpt: Our favourite puzzle-solving duo, Professor Layton and his young apprentice, Luke, need your help again to unravel some more curious happenings after the ill-fated demonstration of a new, whizzy time machine goes awry… Luke receives a letter from his future self warning him that the prof has inexplicably turned evil, and needs his present-day incarnation to assist in thwarting his wayward activities.
