"So, when all is said and done Professor Layton may not be highly innovative, as it mixes elements from other games and other forms of entertainment, but to some extent it is still a game most of us have never experienced before. Sure, it's a simple idea done right, but when you realise that's a characteristic most great games share it shows how special the title is. It's definitely a great game, there is no doubt about that, and one that most people should consider playing. More so, for those of a particular audience, it could easily be one of the more exciting games released this year."
