Professor Layton and the Spectre’s Call

D+PAD
17 January 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. This is another worthy entry in the series and proof that, despite the release of the 3DS, there is life in the old DS yet.

Professor Layton and The Spectre's Call - Review

GAME Group plc
18 November 2012
  • Excerpt: The Professor Layton series isn exactly full of surprises at this point. The developers work with a familiar set of pieces and make them come to life beautifully. Youe got your titular professor, his young assistant Luke, and a bunch of zany supporting characters. And, of course, youe got your puzzles. Dozens and dozens of puzzles - from maths teasers to squirrelly linguistic trickery, to the dreaded sliding-block conundrums.
  • Pros: Scores of new puzzles, Variety of cool mini-games, Engrossing story
  • Cons: Much the same as previous games, Dialogue scenes can run a bit long, Interface is clunky in parts

  • Excerpt: After visiting the future, Layton takes a trip to the past Taking a hint from the Star Wars films, Professor Layton has to ask himself a very difficult question. Where do you go when you’ve become so emotionally invested in some of the most loveable characters ever created that you’ve shelled out your heart on a silver plater?
  • Pros: Same old charms as ever, Loads of puzzles to solve, Great array of new characters
  • Cons: Some r

  • Excerpt: Stua så plettfri ut. Entreen likeså. Jon Cato sjekket at den nystrøkne skjorta var dyttet stramt ned i buksa, og kastet et blikk gjennom døråpningen til kjøkkenet på klokka. Fem over to. Meget mystisk, det var svært ulikt den gode professoren å være sent ute. Jon Cato tok et nytt blikk i speilet, rettet på noen hårstrå, og gikk inn på kjøkkenet og satte på kaffemaskinen. Professoren måtte da være rett rundt hjørnet.
  • Pros: Spennende historie, artige karakterer, en del gode gåter
  • Cons: For mange svake gåter, standardformelen begynner å bli sliten og oppbrukt

  • Excerpt: Professor Layton-serien er og bliver en fænomenal god og veldesignet spilserie, der tilbyder solid historie, flot grafik og massevis af puzzles og hjernevridere til både børn og voksne. Men efter flere spil i serien, der alle har fået flotte og rosende anmeldelser, er konceptet måske ved at være lidt slidt og trænger måske snart til et serviceeftersyn. På den anden side er der vel aldrig grund til at ændre på den vindende formel?
  • Pros: Smuk grafik, Solid historie, 170 puzzles, Endnu et kvalitets Layton-spil
  • Cons: Det hele er set før, Lidt langsomt i optrækket

  • Summary: Professor Layton and the Spectre's Call er det fjerde spillet i serien som kommer til våre breddegrader. Også denne gangen er spillet proppfullt av finurlige og morsomme hjernenøtter.
