Follow the Twisted Path to the Truth

Many Small Puzzles, One Big Mystery

For Professor Layton, solving a big mystery involves untangling many smaller mysteries, and each has its own set of brain-teasing puzzles.


People are puzzles that you can solve through conversation. Who has something to hide? You won't know until you start asking questions.


Clues are hiding in plain sight. As you move from locale to locale, stop to examine anything of interest with your magnifying glass.


Discoveries big and small often lead to puzzles, and that's where the Professor and his team shine as investigators.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from 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.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from 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!
