god damm it I still haven't finished unwound future.

Although is it pissing anyone else that they're changing the cover format again? I thought it was pretty cool doing all the covers the same way (Although I have an early copy of the first one with a different cover) Now they've scrapped it for the third game? That's just balls.

Fourth game, Benz.

Anyway, nice review. Good to see Australia gets London Life, I imported the US version because I thought we weren't getting it. Major props to Level 5 remembering our little country, somewhere many devs/ publishers seem to forget.

Anyway, my only complaint is that a couple puzzles are more math problems than actual puzzles, but really that is just such a minor complaint it's nearly irrelevant. It's only 3 or 4 puzzles anyway. I reckon this has the best story out of the 4 games so far.

London life didn't really capture my attention, but for a free RPG it seems pretty deep. Great addition.

Also, everyone get behind this game! If it gets enough sales, we might still have a chance of getting Layton Vs Ace Attourney!

Benza - the cover format is different because we're basically getting the US version of the game, complete with their voicework, cover and extras, whereas before we were always getting the straight PAL versions. I've got no idea why they decided to give us special treatment this one time, but I'm definitely not complaining icon_smile.gif

Pretty sure this one will sell well enough to make it possible for Mask of Miracle and Layton vs Ace Attorney to wind up on the 3DS for our territory eventually icon_smile.gif

^Not Layton himself, he's the same actor across all games, but sometimes Luke and secondary characters are done by different voice actors.

ah ok I can deal with a different luke since he's a lot younger and shit but a different layton is like "Fuck this I'm out"

Good game, although a few puzzles are more tedious (way too many moves/considerations compared to previous games).

Took about ~25hrs to finish all up, without touching London Life.
