Professor Layton and the Unwound Future Review
4 March 2013
Conclusion: True, Professor Layton and the Unwound Future doesn't stray far from the entrenched Professor Layton formula, but that's because it does the job so well. You can't ask for a finer collection of puzzles than what you get from Unwound Future , and it's not as if any Professor Layton game would work as a first-person shooter--though the concept is intriguing. Layton fans, put on your time-traveling hat and take a trip with the Professor and Luke. The Lukes, rather.
More great brain-teasers, with a dark but exciting plot.

Summary: Parents need to know that the plot-line of puzzle-based adventure Professor Layton and the Unwound Future , just like that of previous Layton adventures , is rather dark, with an eerie foreboding atmosphere. There are a few scary moments -- including explosions, machine gun firing, and booby traps -- depicted in animated scenes. The game itself is full of clever puzzles and brainteasers and provides a great mental challenge for kids.
Professor Layton and the Unwound Future (DS) - Review
5 October 2010
Excerpt: “EIGHTY-EIGHT MIIILES PER HOOOOUR!” The phrase is an iconic one for those who grew up watching adventure movies in the ‘80s and ‘90s. The immortal words of Doctor Emmett Brown in the first Back to the Future, having just witnessed his beloved time-traveling Delorean perform its task for the first time, have fittingly transcended decades.
Conclusion: Professor Layton and the Unwound Future is a cute and clever game that is constantly challenging the player, without being so difficult that it becomes frustrating. If you’re a fan of the previous titles, you will definitely want to pick up this title for the continuing storyline and the familiar puzzle gameplay.
NDS Review - 'Professor Layton and the Unwound Future'
28 September 2010
Summary: Professor Layton and his apprentice, Luke, receive a confounding letter — from Luke 10 years in the future. But the message inside is even more troubling: London of the future is in disarray, and the only person who can help set things right is Professor Layton.
Excerpt: London has gone to Hell. The city is a decayed shell of its former self; it’s been turned into a massive, heavily polluted industrial wasteland. The Thames has become a graying cesspool, and the subway systems are slowly rotting underground. Aside from a handful of meager restaurants and hotels, most of the businesses have gone bankrupt. The once-bustling streets have been nearly abandoned. There are rumors of people being kidnapped.
