4.0 out of 5 stars An Excellent Sequel, 12 Sept. 2009
By 
This review is from: Professor Layton and Pandora's Box (Nintendo DS) (Video Game)
This is an excellent follow up to one of the DS's best titles. For the uninitiated, the Layton games are a mix of brain teasers and puzzles, mixed with a graphic adventure that follows the tale of the Professor investigating the disappearance of an old friend.

There are more puzzles in this than the original, and the game is a little longer, and it must be said the puzzles aren't quite up to the high standard of the original. There are a lot of puzzles similar to one another, and many of them are run-of-the-mill sliding block or arithmetic puzzles. That's not to say it isn't fun - it's still of a very high standard, it's just the first game set the bar so high.

On the positive side, the presentation and plot are a big improvement on the original. Likewise, the various minigames you can play while exploring, give some much needed variety to the proceeding.

I'd certainly recommend this to anyone who enjoyed the original. If you haven't played either though, I'd recommend 'Curious Village' over this one as your first purchase.

Note: This review was based on the identical 'Professor Layton & The Diabolical Box', which is the North American version and is identical in all but name. Unlike some other reviewers here, I paid to import this game by post - downloading ROMs from the net is both illegal and I'm sure highly offensive to the people who put effort into creating this software.
