I'm a 57 year old man who never plays video games - I bought the Diabolical Box on a whim. Most of my use of the DS was for the 'brain game' type products. It began to feel like I was doing it because it was good for me, not because it was fun. So, I tried Diabolical Box. In truth, I thought the story a tad silly but it served as a platform to get from puzzle to puzzle and as such did it's duty. The puzzles though were a wonderful mix, almost all completely different from one another, they were challenging enough to keep the process from feeling childish. They taught me, again, the lesson of reading carefully, something I need to be reminded of. For me, it took just over 15 hours to beat the game. I didn't understand the 'tea' stuff and at no point was it required to put together the camera and the points added up but served no purpose - minor irritants though. It was 15 hours of pure diversion - and I suspect just as good for the brain as the other more 'serious' games.

I was impressed by the first Professor Layton game (Curious Village). I bought the second game (Diabolical Box) and was blown away! The puzzles are great, the storyline is interesting, and the graphics are wonderful. I highly recommend this game!

This is a really fun game. The UI is intuitive, the puzzles and interesting, challenging and plentiful. Personally, I could have gone for a little less clicking though the story, but the plot itself really wasn't that bad either. A very good buy.

I bought this game for my boyfriend last year. He spent hours playing it.

I was only able to finish it recently (the story, still working on some of the puzzles) and it was great!
The story is pretty fun and the puzzles range quite a bit in difficulty.

I bought the third one for him for christmas this year. I'd say this is a great series for anyone who enjoys puzzles to play!

Although I found the ending to be a bit anti-climatic - it certainly wasn't totally predictable. I enjoyed all the puzzles, I'm still not complete, and I've not been able to put it down since I purchased it. I'm a puzzle nut. There was a good mix of easy and quite challenging puzzles. It was engaging and I'm considering purchasing the other Prof. Layton games. Enjoy!!
