Review – Professor Layton and the Diabolical Box

Professor Layton 2

It’s no mystery, I absolutely loved the first Professor Layton game. All the stories about new Layton games and movies in Japan make me green with envy. But finally, I have Professor Layton and the Diabolical Box in my hands and further in love with these games I fall!

If you played the first game and liked it at all, buy this sequel.  If you haven’t played the first, you can actually get the new one and enjoy it just fine.  There are some references to the first game, but you won’t be terribly lost on the overall story.  The puzzles, though, are all outstanding and it feels like sound, music, graphics, and menus have all been enhanced for this edition. Even the manual contains a physical puzzle.  They took something great and made it superb.

Review based on retail copy of the game provided by the publisher.

    My sister loved the first game, yesterday I sent her the Nintendo promotion I received at my g.mail. She said cool I’ll download the rom once it’s available. Five minutes later I was @ Amazon pre-ordering the game and have it shipped to her place….

    I don’t know what to say about that story. Layton is a first day buy for me.

    Finally got the chance to play the original Layton game and I’m actually enjoying, although I must say that there are some puzzles that feel cheap but make sense after solving them. Want to play the sequel already.
