GameXplain: "There's something inherently appealing about the Professor Layton series. The Professor is quiet, unassuming, and is more likely to have a cup of tea than do anything action-oriented yet he's one of my favorite characters of the last few years. And after four games, I think I understand why. He has the same kind of appeal as Sherlock Holmes: little development of the titular character from adventure to adventure, but it doesn't matter because he's likable and you just want to see what kind of mystery he's going to encounter next. And that's the key, Layton is a fantastic character through and through and his games, while never changing in any major ways from iteration to iteration, are just plain fun. Professor Layton and the Last Specter continues that tradition and I find myself already excited for the next big adventure."
