QJ.NET writes: Step aside, Phoenix Wright and Kyle Hyde. Make way for the new thinker in DS town. He's got an English accent, and he's definitely not afraid to use it. With superb animations and a pretty solid storyline, Professor Layton and the Curious Village doesn't fail to impress. Of course, that's if you're got enough patience to stick things through to the end.
Professor Layton and the Curious Village may have its drawbacks, but they're pretty negligible compared to the entire experience of solving the case of St. Mystere. If you're still pretty bummed out with the whole replay value thing, don't worry. The sequel is coming out eventually.
And the cool thing is... Once the sequel gets released, you're supposedly going to stumble onto a password that you can use in Curious Village to unlock the Hidden Door under the Top Secret section. So how's that for some ingenious marketing? Also gives a sense of replay value too.
