Got a shot at my sister's copy and spent quite a bit of the day playing it. I've got 35 out-of-sequence puzzles under my belt, and I'm enjoying it pretty well, even though I don't think I'd enjoy it quite as much if I'd paid for a copy of my own.

Thing is, I'm in love with the puzzles (well, maybe not the slide puzzles), and the art style is lovely, but the rest of the package is...a bit irritating, actually. The story itself is a bit bland, everyone besides Layton comes off as a moron or a jerk, and the soundtrack gets old mighty fast. Still, the puzzles make up for a lot. Only what, 90 or so to go?

P.S. Does anybody else hear Layton's voice as Raiden faking a British accent?

Ya know what? I don't know about the English version, but in the Japanese version I actually couldn't stand Layton himself.
Cocky little prick.
His constant hammering on the fact that he's an English Gentleman got on my nerves REAL fast.

Try going to Gamefaqs:

Somebody posted a FAQ dedicated to puzzle solutions.

James O Mar 20, 2008

Thank goodness for the FAQ's, there was no way I was ever going to get all the solutions for the slide puzzle ones by myself, same for the one about separating up the properties with the houses and wells.  The weekly downloads have been rather weak though (except for the matchstick one - that one I had to look up.)

I picked this game recently and I must say this is my top 5 of favorite ds games of all time.
charming with its unique style, fantastic soundtrack(never gets on your nerves), I cannot wait for the sequel that has been already released in japan.
I solved all 135 puzzles and it took me bit over 23 hours so it's a definitely lengthy adventure.
even though it's not your regular point & click adventure games, it made me realize how much I miss those.
bring the monkey island/grim fandango games to the ds ^^ !

At last, confirmation that the Professor Layton sequels are on their way over:

http://blog.wired.com/games/2009/03/lay … ch-cl.html

Level-5's Akihiro Hino states that the second game in the series, "Professor Layton and the Pandora's Box" (now renamed "Professor Layton and the Diabolical Box"), is currently being worked on in localization, and is being targeted for a release in six months.  Huzzah!

I'm eagerly anticipating this one.  The first was great to pass the time when I was on vacation relaxing.  Although some of the puzzles really infuriated me heh, almost made me throw the DS across the room.  I haven't plugged the first in for quite some time - having the downloadable puzzles available to play after the game was finished kinda lost its flair as I moved on to other things because I knew I was finished and they weren't going to really contribute to anything.  But they better provide the answer to that one question where you'll need something from the second game's manual (I think that's how it went).

From what I understand, it's a set-random password, i.e. one that should theoretically only work on the first system its put into or somesuch, like how you redeem promotional codes for DLC.
Anyway, this news made my sister happy, as did the new DS Zelda (she loved Hourglass to bits) and Capcom's registering of Ace Attorney: Investigations recently (likely Gyakuten Kenji). She's a BIG fan of such games, and Time Hollow ain't quite cutting it for her.

Best news of the day! Took them a long time though... would've liked to get some Layton love this summer sad

Brilliant news but hope this one doesn't get sold out for months like the last one. ^_^

I honestly thought it was a miracle when I finally found a copy after 2 solid weeks of looking.

They're already starting a new trilogy, with first game (P. Layton and the Devil’s Flute) to be released Fall 2009.  It's a prequel though.
Apparently this new game starts 3 years before Curious Village.    So Luke is like 8?

And the movie, which comes out 1/2010 is called Layton and the Immortal Songstress. this movie is supposed to come after Devil's Flute in the chronology.

The storylines are so interesting, but the gameplay can irritate you, as he mentioned above.
You could spend like hours on one puzzle (ex:slide, math) 
You’d be listening to the “Nazo” (Puzzle) theme and have to tolerate it.
But I can tolerate the music just fine.

I admit the trailer musics of the first trilogy are siren songs; so good that I was lured into playing these games which lead to my frustration rather than rocky death.
But despite this, the games are quite good.
The music in the game is tolerable, likeable too.

Since this is a prequel trilogy, maybe we'll get some back story on why Luke's parents left him to Layton's tutelage.  Or maybe Layton is Luke's father?

Luke: I thought my parents were dead.
Layton: No, Luke, I....am your father..
