Professor Layton and the Lost Future Review

VideoGamer.com
26 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: games have been a welcome addition to the Nintendo DS library ever since the first title. Now with a handful of games on the system, how is the good professor doing this time around?

  • Excerpt: Sequels are ubiquitous. As soon as developers discover a selling formula they spend every effort (and I use the word lightly) and moment (usually too few of these) replicating that formula in sequel upon sequel upon sequel. They stick gamers with near-facsimiles – exemplified by the Harvest Moon series.

  • Summary: The story isn't quite as good, but Layton's riddles still provide an irresistible draw in his third adventure.

  • 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

Professor Layton and the Lost Future [DS] Review

WiiDS.co.uk
28 November 2010
  • Excerpt: Taking a break from puzzle-solving, the Professor and his apprentice, Luke are invited to a demonstration of an apparently fully-working time machine.  When the experiment goes awry, the machine is destroyed and both it’s inventor and the Prime Minister, Bill Hawks are found to be missing.  Soon after, Luke receives a letter from a familiar face – himself ten years in the future, warning him that things are soon to take a turn for the worse.
  • Pros: A good mix of different types of puzzles, Super Hints ensure you shouldn’t be stuck too long
  • Cons: Long-time fans might be put off by the lack of new features and additions

  • Conclusion: A more-than-worthy sequel in this inherently awesome franchise. Once you start playing, you won't put it down. That's a guarantee.
  • Pros: Addictive as ever, Gorgeous presentation, Engrossing plotline, Wealth of content
  • Cons: Handful of puzzles are plain daft, Minigames aren't the best in the series
