    meh.. upon starting this, i got a cutscene freeze in the train, now, i thought, of course, probably a problem with the download or tokyo trim...
    so i delete it and look for a new one, and i realize, in the minute the game worked, it already created like 7 .sav files...


    did that happen to anyone else?

    no, i got no problems with my R4, but i didn't look at the saves.

    the japanese game called the box pandoras box, the american verion cover says its diabolical box and in the game it's called elysian box. strange somehow [​IMG]

    yeah i remembered there was a way to fix this problem most of the times by renaming the savestate of another game with the same savetype, as its a file creation error, but file rewrite always works fine

    To those who say its just as good at the original - Or people who wonder that, this game might as well be the same thing with a new story line & puzzles. So far nothing has jumped out and surprised me, but thats not a bad thing. More voice acting is in, sorta?

    Saying it has a new storyline and puzzles means it's essentially completely different games, considering Layton is pretty much only storyline and puzzles. Would you consider Metroid Prime and Echoes to be the same thing by that definition? Because the gameplay mechanics are practically identical, although it has a new storyline and different maps. Just thought you oughta know.

    It's quite a relief that the puzzles are a lot easier this time around. I have done 35 puzzles now and I didn't even break a sweat. Unlike in the first one where I had to use a bloody walkthrough to solve Puzzle 7...

    Oh well, it's a very good game that will keep me playing my DS for a while.

    I tried to like it but the story bored me & the little puzzles are soooo old I have played most of them on my old Palm III about 10 years ago. I hope this is the last Professor Layton I’ll see for the DS.

    Sorry to rock your boat, but there's already 2 more out in Japan. Odds are they'll receive the same treatment as Curious Village and Diabolical Box.

    I actually need to try the first one some time. I always say "I'll go download it and try it" and then find myself thinking it'll be incredibly boring and not downloading it.

    Your ultimate ROM resource

    Don't be so stupid as to ignore the rules and ask for ROMs. Actually read rules before posting like an idiot.

    Quick overview for people who didn't bother to play the first game:
    In the first game, Layton was interested in finding the Golden Apple, a treasure owned by the king of the town of Saint Mystere, a curious little village where all the people are quirky and there is a strange tower built in the back of the town. After solving several puzzles, Layton sees a man running through the town, carrying a large bag with a head coming out of it, he races after him but fails to catch him. The day after that, they meet Inspector Chelmey, a man who was hired to solve the death of the man who's head was coming out of the bag. After doing a bit of searching, they see a suspicious girl, they chase her, and are lead to the large tower, upon solving several puzzles, they get to the top, and, oh yeah, I forgot to say that everyone in the town is mechanical. The golden apple is really the kings daughter, but the real treasure is found later. She finds a note that says "When the treasure is removed, everyone in the town will, just, die. She became so attached to them that she leaves the treasure there. Layton then adopts her, at the request of the king's letter, and the story is open for the sequel.
    Japan is set for two more games and a movie. Ha.
