5.0 out of 5 stars Really gets the grey matter working!, 9 Jan. 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Professor Layton and the Spectre's Call (Nintendo DS) (Video Game)
I think this has to be the best Layton so far. It is jam packed full of puzzles ranging from fairly easy ones to ones that are so hard it nearly drives you mad trying to work them out. My poor Husband has had cries for help so many times during this game that he said he may as well have played the entire thing himself :-) Even he who has a really logical mind was stymied by one particular puzzle and announced it couldn't be done. I did prove him wrong and through sheer persistence and bloody mindedness managed to work it out myself.

You tend to become rather anti-social whilst playing this game as it is so compulsive and I simply couldn't bear going to bed leaving a puzzle unsolved. I did draw the line one night when I simply had to cheat because it was nearly 2.00am and I was still struggling.

The graphics are good as usual and so are the voices and the music although I hardly ever have the sound turned on as I find it a bit of distraction. You have to check these things out though.

I thought the story was better than some of the other Layton games even though it was a little sad at the end.

My only slight moan is that some of the video clips were a bit too long and I got rather impatient.

I loved the mini games in particular whacking the mice which sent me into a total frenzy. I shall probably go back and play this game all over again at some point but in general I was very pleased with my score, the highest I have ever achieved to date.

A superb, well thought out game indeed and very highly recommended.
