Well that’s Level-5 for you. They make great games. I wish they make more awesome Action-RPGs like Rouge Galaxy.
Because I’m too DUMB to solve the PUZZLES you DICK
But I have!
In fact, it was one of the only ds games I actually finished before my ds was destroyed.
I highly recommend it, and am rather sad that I can’t finish the other games without emulation or dropping some cash on a new ds.
It was a great game.
Alright alright fine. I keep wanting to get a Professor Layton game, but I never end up getting it.
Marcus, do you even solve?
So many good games are coming out on handhelds these days. I wish they’d also get released on the consoles/PC. I don’t like playing games on a 3-inch screen.
because i don’t own a DS
I watched this with my sister. She immediately handed my her DS and the game. I’m a few chapters in. THANK YOU
I’m sorry to say it Tim, but one of my main problems with the Layton series is the PRESENCE of non-realistic, mystical and scientific elements in the series. Without wanting to spoil anything, it turns out that a big part of San Mystere’s enigmatic nature is tied to a technological marvel that would be patently impossible in the modern day, let alone the pseudo-early-20th-Century rural France setting which the first game takes place in. What’s more, subsequent games just pile on the extra-normal world elements that repeatedly take me out of the narrative and spoil what would otherwise be a charming puzzle game series with unique atmosphere.
It exactly the same problem as I had with the Phoenix Wright series (Which you alluded to). I could deal with the fact that a main character is a mystic who can channel and become possessed by the spirits of the dead as long as it didn’t interfere with any of the actual cases. Come the second game’s second case and exactly that happens, and it only ramps up from there.
I do like Level-5 a lot; they’ve worn their love of the early-20th century French settings on their cuffs since Dark Chronicle and I’d love to see them return to it in a fully fledged console RPG. I’m just upset at the quality of the White Knight Chronicles series.
That’s a fair complaint – I often have the same problem too. I guess since most of the game was so grounded on reality, I was never expecting the ending.
