I think it's a testament to how dumbed down games are nowadays as a whole that when presented with professor layton I was completely baffled by most of the puzzles, lol.
I thought I was smart this game makes me look retarded as hell but its a great game n I see what you mean arbiterspartan
fps dominator, I know what you mean. Professor Layton got a 9/10, same as Killzone or Street Fighter(I think). However, some aspects of games aren't in others, which is how the rating system works. You can't expect GREAT, full color graphics on a game like this, but it's perfectly attainable on the 360/PS3. The DS makes low-er quality games, so when something like this comes out, it gets a higher score by DS standards. I haven't played Chinatown Wars, but obviously it's better because it got a better score.
huh??? this gets a 9.0, GTA chinatown wars get 9.5...... can gamespot please make it clear that these scores are not to be compared with game on other systems..... otherwise professor layton should be as good as killzone 2 LMFAO....oh and better then resident evil and equal to street fighter.....i think the rating system has gone a bit orkward....
Great game. But why did the weekly downloads in the States stop at week 28? I was hoping for at least 52 weeks.
Haven't bought a game for my DS for 2 years but this might be one that brings me back to the handheld.
JellyJake: that comment is the prime example of why nintendo is started to suck. (love this game though)
Gamespot editor: I know I'll do a video review for Professor layton! Manager:Yeah ok you have 2 minutes camera time see what you can do! Editor:...
Im looking forward to buying a copy of this for both me and my wife, and writing a review for Gamespot & my blog.
@ethan1033 I would say The Unwound future (Lost Future in the UK) is the best, although I would play all of them in the order they came out.
