Professor Layton: The Unwound Future
= I was able to see a few spoilers coming (okay, sister, I believe you), but overall it was an extremely enjoyable plot. Boy these Layton titles really love their grand finales, huh? I love the old and new faces, and I love how the series often redeems or explains its villain (is that a spoiler? Every game in the series does it!)
= The assets needed to pull off the plot....are extreme
to say the least
= I'd argue the plot was rather unjust actually. The good still kinda lost, the bad kinda won.
= Holy fuck the puzzles in this game were the cruelest in the series, IMO. Especially the bonus ones... The last set can suck it; it takes Superhuman Knowledge for some of those (the last one is especially a big bag of dicks and I don't even mind the sliding puzzles that much). A lot of the word game puzzles are mean and nothing upsets me more than the lack of clarity for a puzzle stops me more than trying to solve the problems itself
= Shit. Is that it? Azran is the last Layton-centric title? Because I don't really like Level-5's current direction, and Layton was one of the few things that made me care. And with the big bag off ass "Layton 7" looks like
(even if that is just a temp title), I'm not looking forward to where my puzzle games are heading. I might just jump onto Prof Layton X Phoenix Wright
(despite it's rather luke-warm reviews) or Layton Brothers
instead (a series I'm surprised they haven't made any further announcements for despite the potential).
