Professor Layton & The Last Specter is the fourth chapter in the series, and the final installment on the Nintendo DS. Like the previous installments players can solve around 150 puzzles, all while uncovering a central mystery.

The far-fetched plot of The Last Specter should come as no surprise to those who have played Layton's previous adventures. Although it is meant for all ages, it's disappointing that the series veers into the realm of total fantasy. Professor Layton is portrayed as an intelligent investigator who solves mysteries with logic and deduction, much like Sherlock Holmes. However, the actual mysteries he uncovers always feature a catch so ridiculous it can't be fully predicted. It just feels like lazy story-telling to rely on outrageous plot devices.

As usual there are a few mini-games that serve as a diversion from the regular puzzles. They're similar in nature to those of The Unwound Future, and if completed will unlock additional puzzles after you've completed the game. Unfortunately once again one of them is basically a simple ad-lib storybook.

In addition to the main game there's a full-fledged side game called London Life, wherein players interact with personalities from the Layton universe in Little London. Developed by Brownie Brown, Layton's London Life is drawn in the same delightful style as Mother 3. Unfortunately, you don't actually play as Professor Layton or Luke but instead customize a male or female avatar. Although it was billed as a role-playing game, this is more of an interactive town simulation similar to titles like The Sims or Animal Crossing. That being said, this extra features more emphasis on story than either of those games.

This fourth game in the Professor Layton series is just as fun and difficult. You we like the new story like around the mysterious Specter. The Professor and Luke pair up with a new side-kick -- I won't tell you who but it' fun! The mini-game will challenge puzzle solving experts. I hope they keep coming out with more in the series.
