Summary: Loved the game. Follows and shares elements of the first game, dark cloud, and loved it even more because of this. It actually taught me how to upgrade the weapons in the first game from this game, hehe.
Widely considered one of the best of the last console generations RPG's. Level 5's masterwork

Excerpt: Professor Layton and Inazuma Eleven have now turned Level 5 in to an emerging games publisher. But not so long ago they were a small development studio in Japan working on Playstation exclusive games. Whilst there have never set the sales charts on fire outside of their native Japan. There was still a small but loyal fan-base to be found within the NA, EU and AUS regions.
Amazon lies to UK government and pays even less tax

Summary: Last year Amazon said that it earned £320 million in the UK yet only paid £3.2 million in tax. Don't we all wish we only paid 1%. The trouble is though that Amazon told its US audience that it earned over £4 billion in the UK market. Either Amazon is lying to the UK tax authorities or it is confused. It certainly is grossly immoral.
Excerpt: Being a long term fan of Dark Cloud, when I heard there was a sequel game I immediately went out and found it. From the cartoony box and cover, and the art style, you may wonder if it is a game that is way too young for you, but dont be put off! It really is a complex game with so many elements.
A fantastic game with hours and hours of play, and lots to do.

Excerpt: Dark Chronicle is an excellent game, but one that is difficult to define. A fascinating mix of puzzle and action game, combined with worldbuilder and RPG, this one has something for everyone and enough subquests that doing them all could easily get you over fifty hours of play - not counting the game plus hidden levels. Dark Chronicle is the sequel to Dark Cloud. There is one town left in the world which is slowly dying, and no one is allowed to leave.
Summary: I really enjoyed this spiritual successor to Dark Cloud. While it retains many of the game mechanics from the original Dark Cloud game, no previous knowledge of the prequel is necessary and many of the game's functions have been improved. More minigames have been added (such as the golf-esque sphere minigame) and existing ones such as fishing have been improved.
