Continue with the series only if you're a Pixar masochist, ie you like cute and awesome things that will wring every last tear from your eyes.

Or if you like swordfights. Because the second and fifth games contain severely badass ones.

I adore swordfights! And puzzles!
Also I am planning to put together a cosplay of Emmy for next autumn's local anime con. Archi has already agreed to cosplay as Layton, so now we just have to put the costumes together! *^_^*

Jealoooooussss


Oh, one more thing I forgot: if you like steampunk mecha, this is the series for you. In the games without swordfighting, you'll end up fighting a steampunk mecha at some point.

Then the movie has a swordfight on top of a steampunk mecha controlled by a pipe organ. Crazy awesome doesn't begin to cover it. Oh, Descole...

You could always view it on YouTube... it's SO GOOD.

It's also going to be relevant to the plot of the sixth game.[/spoiler]

I'd rather get hold of it so I can watch it on the TV, rather than try to watch it on my little netbook--the main 17" laptop has been out of commission since summer. ~_~*

Guys! I haven't played any of the Layton game, but I think I'll give it a show during break! Should I start with The Curious Village, or should I just get Miracle Mask? Thanks! :)

Start with Curious Village. Alternately, you COULD start with Last Specter. Do NOT start with Miracle Mask, it's the second in a trilogy and will confuse you because it doesn't introduce the characters. Best to start with Curious Village because it was the first game and will introduce you to Layton himself, where the other games do not.

Start with Curious Village. Miss nothing. Half of the stuff with Luke meeting Layton in Specter's Flute loses most of its poignancy if you're not already aware that it's the start of a dedicated friendship.

Also, there is no reason in the universe not to play Pandora's Box and Lost Future. None. At. All.

Agreed 1000%.

I have to rebuy Diabolical Box, since my cousin borrowed it and never returned it. :(

I really need to play the rest of these games.  When I worked at Gamestop we were allowed to check out games for ~3 days (unless they were really popular like CoD or something, but who cares about those) and I checked out Curious Village... and finished every puzzle in those 3 days.  Granted, that was over the summer so I had nothing else to do, but I loved it!  I want to play the rest, but I don't want to buy them all >_<
