Professor Layton and the Strange City [import] review

A mysterious mixture of PGS and Studio Ghibli


  • Interesting and well thought out puzzles
  • Animation is awesome
  • Loads of weird characters to meet


  • Thinking so hard
  • Puzzles can't be repeated
  • Need to understand Japanese

Exercising your brain is one of the most popular activities on DS, but you’ve always been out of luck if you want to do it via a proper game rather than a load of abstract math problems. Until now, of course. Professor Layton is an old-fashioned point-and-click adventure in which every character and location has a stylus-chewingly fiendish logic problem for you to solve.
