Professor Layton and the Azran Legacy
A game fit for a professor
My first adventure in the Layton series was Miracle Mask, and let me just say, it was mind blowing. I never thought I'd like a puzzle solving game like this but I was so wrong. The story was so deep and plot twisting that I couldn't put the game down. Alright now to the Azran Legacy. The final game in the second trilogy of the Layton adventures is almost upon us and your probably wondering; 1. If you should get, 2. Does it matter if I didn't play the first two games, and 3. How do the games play. Heck yeah you should get this game. No it truthfully doesn't matter if this will be your first. As mentioned I played the second in the trilogy and nothing was the least bit confusing. You can easily enter this game without knowing anything and still have a great experience. Finally for those of you who haven't played a game in the series yet; Though a puzzle based game, the game moves a perfect place and definitely not slow by any means. The character are all...well... good and bad. Some characters I fall in love with and some are boring and a bit cliche, but overall I really loved the characters I've met through the adventures. The puzzles are well puzzling . With few being simple, most will leave you pondered for a good few minutes but are highly fun and creative. Don't worry if your stuck you can use a hint coin to help you solve the puzzle. The biggest part of the game is the story and from what I've seen in the previous adventures, this games story will be amazing for sure. If your not to sure about picking up this game, take it from me and give it a chance. I can't wait until the epic conclusion of this wonderful series unfolds.
i hope it's better than the past few
the first three games they came out with the curious village, diabolical box, and unwound future were all compeatly amazing i cried at the end of each of them the newest ones i have not liked as much so far they have been boring and not as artistic and up to their other games story telling abilities i really hope this game is worth my forty dollars i want to cry at the end' have one of those OH MY GOD HOW COULD I HAVE NOT KNOWN HOW OH MY GOD THAT'S JUST OH MY... i want a story worth my money i want puzzles worth my brain even reading them which they have never left me down with puzzles but i want a story and i only hope that it has the story.... it does not matter what order you play (even though its easier to fall for the characters if you start from the first game they put out) sooo excited for this game though
a quick ending but layton still is a genius
After passing this, I felt relieved. I played most of the Layton games and I have to say this game didn't keep me in for long. I felt some of the puzzles were too familiar to the past ones, making it easy to pass. There wasn't as much guidelines to move forward in the story, another reason to fly through. Lots of coins and hints, no need for cheating obviously. What made it interesting was the story, there were some (!) moments hence the ending of prequel series. Its time to move forward and bring in more strategy. Nevertheless, I look forward to the next Layton game after (not Wright), a full adventure in the series.
A lasting final appeal
The Professor Layton games have truly been one-of-a-kind, and Azran Legacy finishes it off beautifully. The plot is filled with twist and turns, and the story may render you amazed. The music has also been rendered at an amazing level, along with the stunning graphics. I would recommend that newcomers at puzzle games start with the original games first as this one contains several mind boggling puzzles to stump you!
I'M SO EXCITED!!
Miracle Mask was a change in pace with it's new 3d graphics and it not only looked amazing but changed the way puzzles were solved making them more hands-on. I want to know what happens in the plot!
