Re: Post here when you beat a game. I mean it!

Just finished Professor Layton and the Curious Village on DS. the art was great, the music was excellent and overall the presentation was utterly charming. there was a pretty hefty disconnect between the characters/story and the puzzles, though. still, it was hard not to like.

it made me feel like a COMPLETE retard, though. i aced most of the 3D and logic puzzles, but the math and other types had me flummoxed most of the time. i don't think i've ever used an FAQ as often as i did for this game.

a thumbs up for sure, but i'd like to see better integration of story and puzzles, and to have some choices and action that weren't necessarily puzzle-related. (dialogue, actions of characters, etc...)

not gonna review it, BUT IF I DID... i'd say a 7.5. Maybe an 8 if i was feeling generous.
Drink Coffeecola. It's good and good for you!
