Professor Layton and the Spectre’s Call

1 September 2012
  • Conclusion: The time will come when the Layton formula wears out. As of now it is getting a bit thin in places but holds up overall remarkably well, with a quality and variety in the puzzles that suggests a fair amount of life remains in the franchise.

  • Conclusion: As well as guiding Layton through this captivating new storyline, you can also get to grips with three new minigames. Lay a train track for a small model train to pass through all the stations and reach the goal, or juggle verbs to get the right performance on stage.

  • Cons: Much the same as previous games, Dialogue scenes can run a bit long, Interface is clunky in parts

Professor Layton and the Spectre's Call

25 November 2011
  • Conclusion: The newest Professor Layton game is just as good as the three predecessors. It is engaging, mischievous...and lacking in surprises. It may sound like a criticism, but this lack of development actually is not a major problem. The professor was shaped fine in the first game.
  • Pros: Good puzzles, plenty of content, great design, atmospheric, wonderful characters.
  • Cons: Graphics blurry on some puzzles, lack of London Life stings.
