    I liked this story. Granted not as much as the Unwound future, but perhaps more than the other two games.

    As anyone who reads my Gamespot reviews knows, I love professor Layton, I own everyone single one and have unlocked everything in each game. That said this game didn't quite meet my expectations, but ...

    It has become somewhat of an yearly ritual for American players to, at the end of their year, sink their teeth into yet another Professor Layton game. It all started three years ago when The Curious V...
