This totally met my expectations, although I only got to play it for 2 days before someone stole my DS with this game in it. Puzzles had the same concept but were designed differently..I am a big fan.

If you like puzzles and mysteries, this is a fun product. Recommend starting with the first one in this series "Prof. Layton and the Curious Village."

I bought a copy for my 14-year old daughter and another for my 9-year old nephew. Both REALLY liked it. I gave it a try and it was engaging and challenging. I can recommend this for a range of ages.

This is a great game, but only if you want to be challenged. If your looking for mindless entertainment, look for a different game. Hope they come out with more Professor Layton games!

Bought this game as a gift for my teen. She really enjoys it. Lots of puzzles and challenges and isn't so quickly solved as to become boring. A good game with lots of good animations.

  • A. I have a dsi gaming system and it does work with it because I have professor layton's diabolical box and I play it on my dsi. I have most of the professor layton games and they all play on my dsi.

  • A. go ahead and buy this game if you are wanting it because it does work and can be played there on your DSi!!!! I can promise you this here 100% because that is what I have....the DSi that is and I've played all 4 of the Professor Layton games there on my DSi...even though the cover shows DS!!!! now the newest Professor Layton game is for the 3DS and it will not work nor can it be played there on your DSi :-( Ihave heard here though that some of the Ebay DS games will not work on these players, so therefore I always just buy my games new from Wal-Mart here!!!! may cost me more than Ebay, but that's ok here too :-)
