Although this is a great console there are hardly any new games being made for it. If you can afford it buy the 3DS which will play all the new games coming through in the next few years plus the older DS games.
The 3DS XL although pricey comes with a free downloadable game if registered with Nintendo by the 15th of Jan which saves almost 30 depending on the game chosen and also plays the older DS games.

Although this console is a fantastic product it was launched in 2004 and is soon going to be obsolete there are hardly any new games being made for it as everything's moving up to 3DS. If you can afford it go for one of those as it will play all the new 3D games as well as the old DS games.

1.0 out of 5 stars Absolutely mystyfied, 2 Jan 2013
= Fun:1.0 out of 5 stars 
Bought this as my first game for the 3DS XL. I am not an avid gamer but have had a ds for several years and like this genre of game. Unfortunately I just cannot get started as I have no idea what to do or how to move around the scenes, how do I solve the puzzles as there is no tutorial and the help symbol just doesn't do anything useful. As another reviewer says when you tap on something interesting 'Sherlock' just says 'nothing to do here'. ????
I was also disappointed in the 3D effects and the characterizations. Being a huge fan of Prof Layton I was expecting the same quality in game play and characters but in 3D.
Won't be recommending it to anyone.

I ordered this book from amazon but didn't realise it's in french! The only indication is on the front cover which I didn't enlarge.
