Picked this up with Apollo Justice last week and it's really cute. Hotel Dusk needed more logic puzzles and the like that this game has. Great stuff.

I've heard a LOT of hype on this game, so I've been very curious. Thanks for the review, I might check it out.

I just beat Professor Layton last week. It's really cute and fun (and suprisingly challenging at times). I love the overall look of the game too, the animated sequences were very nice.

I've been working on the game, and really enjoying it, too. Although I can't get that slide puzzle, no matter what I do.

Does Professor Layton sound like Bob the Builder?

I have to say I am curious. Between the nonstop rave reviews, and the huge display for it at Walmart, I suspect this game has to be interesting, if not great. Looks to have style and class if nothing else. Hope to play it sometime. Check out the DS demo units in stores to give it a shot (then wash your hands... thoroughly).

Hahaha I think they were chicks and wolves, not sheep and wolves. But they were adorable chicks and wolves.

Hahah although i've just started this game, I'm really enjoying it. It reminds me how much I enjoy these type of these puzzles when I'm not doing them for school. Hahaha.

This game has just been advertised to death, and I've been kinda skeptical about it, because the descriptions on the advertisements make it sound something like Phoenix Wright without the court scenes, and kinda sounded like a game I'd buy, play a couple of times and then forget about.

This review, though, has really changed my mind. I absolutely love puzzle games like no ones business, and since I have an extra $50 thanks to my piggy bank and coinstar, I might just have to check this one out...

...As soon as I'm done beating Apollo Justice. Razz

LOVE this game and I can't wait until part 2 comes out. The only complaint I might have is that it is fairly short. I'd have loved it to be longer, but it does have some good replay value since once you've finished the main story there are still lots of puzzles to solve, and the ability to download a new puzzle from Nintendo using the Ds' wi-fi capabilities. Great little game.

Finishing Apollo Justice left a sad, empty hole in my heart (don't get me wrong, I loved it!! It was just shorter than expected...), so I picked this up today. The animated cutscenes did me in! Too cute!! Wink

Shorter than you expected? Wow. It feels just as long as the first three have been to me. I'm in the final investigation portion of the final case and I'm not getting that "this is too short" feeling.

I love this game! It deserves all the rave reviews and advertising it's been getting. Initially, we at the game store I work at didn't think it was going to sell very well. The only people who preordered it were all employees. But it's actually doing pretty well, and rightfully so. It's a rocking little game for puzzle and adventure fans alike. I love it.

Wow, your review makes this game seem like the child of Tetris and Myst. That is one legendary combination, in my opinion.

However, I do not understand the basis for the score you gave to this game. B+, and yet the review was so positive. What is up with that?

This does seem to be the latest hot DS game, so it's definitely on my to-buy list. After I get enough money together to buy Apollo Justice (I'm trying to hold out until I finally beat Phantom Hourglass first though...stupid temple -_-)
