As charming, imaginative, and challenging as ever, Layton's Mystery Journey proves there's plenty of life left in the series yet. However, a staggered, slightly underwhelming narrative prevents it from establishing itself as a puzzle genre classic.

This game is not what it should be. Most of the riddles (the essence of the game) are often misleading and cheating. No logic can solve those wannabe-Professor-Layton brainteasers. What could have been great ended up in a mess. Go and play the old Professor Layton games. You're better off with them.

Layton's Mystery Journey: Katrielle and the Millionaires' Conspiracy takes the saying 'Truth is stranger than fiction' to a level that not even children can believe. If you can look past the ridiculousness of the contrived drama you'll find plenty of gems in the form of delightful brain teasers.

The puzzles are both fun and challenging, which somewhat make up for the uncompelling story and generally weak characters.

If you’re a lover of puzzle games and whimsical animation in a Britain of talking dogs handing out riddles, it may be worth a peek, but it’s only mandatory for fans of the series.

As a non-expert on father Layton's predecessors, I experienced in Layton's Mystery Journey: Katrielle and the Millionaires conspiracy Deluxe a fun-loving detective who solves many nice puzzles in a charming adventure across London, but has to give up on suspense and surprising Solutions because of the child-friendly presentation.

I don't want to seem too down on Layton’s Mystery Journey: Katrielle and the Millionaires' Conspiracy - Deluxe Edition. LEVEL-5 included all of the original version's DLC while adding a ton of additional content and there's a lot of game here for your money. For the most part, you'll spend your time solving pleasant puzzles, enjoying a pleasant story, and having a pleasant time.

Katrielle Layton successfully entered the detective world of her father. This installment has been here for 2 years already, however, this version truly is a definitive one.

I enjoyed my time with Layton's Mystery Journey. The puzzles and investigative work are enjoyable as usual, but that special sauce from previous Layton titles has been left out.
