I just finished playing “Professor Layton and the Curious Village” on the Nintendo DS and I really had fun with it. The puzzles are challenging (although some are really tricky because of the way the clues are worded), the story engaging (really creepy in some parts) and the music great to listen to. The animated parts are also pretty cool, and though the professor isn’t your typical bishonen anime character, he’s quite charming. There’s also an animate movie set for January of 2010!
“Professor Layton and the Curious Village” has been ported over to English from the original Japanese version. Give it a try. 🙂
I should go back and finish playing Final Fantasy III but I’m tempted to find “Professor Layton and the Diabolical Box” to play. Poor FF.
