As a follower and fan of most things Layton, I had to buy this game and play it until I turned blue. Great puzzles, just like the last two games. I guess the writers for Layton are getting slightly desperate, because they chose to include a giant blue walrus thing into the plot to fight off a giant robot of destruction. I thought that was a bit of a far stretch. Same as the other Layton's, except I guess this one didn't have as much of that magic that the others had. It had magic in its unbelievable story line... but not the good kind of magic.
