"A good exercise that your brain needs"
5 stars"

Review by Ye on 23rd November, 2010

This game is not just for kids, the puzzles they challenge people at all ages. With a storyline that will grab your attention all the time (like all other Layton games) you could call this game an addiction (like other Layton addictions).

"Pretty good..."
4 stars"

Review by Andrea on 23rd November, 2010

I found this a bit easier than the previous two Layton games (and I refuse to believe I've gotten smarter) and I sorta breezed past this. The plot was easy to figure out but overall, this was a good game… In itself. This would be the weaker one out of the series so far :/

"Most brilliant brain awakening game ever."
5 stars"

Review by cindy on 11th November, 2010

This is the second Professor Layton game I have bought. My daughter has been playing one for 4mths now and I think she must still have a good 3rd of it to go. These games are truely value for money, and they keep your brain stimulated. Now with this new one (and the extra puzzles available to download) she will still be going next christmas!!!!

"Level up difficulty and plot"
5 stars"

Review by Adam on 8th October, 2010

Adds more back story to the prof Layton world. Increases the difficulty of the puzzles so you actually need to find hint coins. On the whole is a very enjoyable game.

"Very hard to put down once you start"
5 stars"

Review by Sam on 13th August, 2011

I'm finding this game really hard to put down, just want to keep playing it.

This is the first time I have played a Professor Layton game, and I am going to have to get all the others now.

I like how their is a good mixture of puzzles, really makes you think, the difficulty ranges from easy to hard, but this would be different for everyone depending on how they work out things.

A great game, and a good story to keep you engaged. Like it a lot.

"An excellent puzzle game."
5 stars"

Review by Lauren on 23rd June, 2011

This is a really great puzzle game. It well and truly lives up to the Professor Layton name. The puzzles range from easy to really challenging and the story line is interesting. The side games give the player an extra challenge and hidden and extra puzzles let you go a little further into gameplay for those who are not just interested in the main plot of the story. The only downside to this game is that some of the story cut scenes go on for a little too long. Overall I found this game to be as fun and challenging as the previous Professor Layton titles, if not more so. I await the next Layton title in eager anticipation and recommend this title to anyone who enjoys puzzle games.


Professor Layton and his apprentice, Luke, receive a confounding letter - from Luke 10 years in the future. But the message inside is even more troubling: London of the future is in disarray, and the only person who can help set things right is Professor Layton.

  • More than 165 new puzzles weave seamlessly into the storyline. Players will be challenged with fun, brain-teasing logic puzzles and riddles, and even new types of puzzles.

  • Players who are still stumped with a puzzle after three subtle hints can select the new "superhint" option to point them toward a solution.
  • As with previous incarnations of the franchise, weekly downloadable puzzles will be available after launch for a limited time.
