Professor Layton and the Miracle Mask is a game in which the player must solve logic puzzles in order to unravel the mystery behind and stop the Masked Gentleman who is terrorising the city of Monte d’Or with frightening miracles. The game has a unique presentation, with a distinct art style, cel animation and soundtrack that immerse the player in the story. The puzzles in the Professor Layton series of games are based on a series of Tago brain-teaser books that have been released in Japan.
These puzzles have been optimised for the Nintendo 3DS system, incorporating the Touch Screen and often the 3D Screen. Each puzzle has a number of hints, and successful completion of each puzzle is rewarded with points (termed “Picarats”), which unlock bonus material in the game. The story takes place before the first-released game of the series, Professor Layton and the Curious Village, and follows on from Professor Layton and the Spectre’s Call and the anime Professor Layton and the Eternal Diva. (From henceforth the game is referred to as Miracle Mask).This is a fifth game in the franchise, and the first for Nintendo 3DS.

Professor Layton: and The Miracle Mask is a great game. Now l understand what people were saying, 3D can only do it for so long but the graphics are good. Now l have the 3D version I will have more games to play. I've downloaded over 150 games to keep up to date. This will keep me and the wife busy on the golf course.
Fans of Professor Layton will know exactly what to expect from this Professor Layton: and The Miracle Mask, but newcomers won't have much trouble settling in either. A gentle blend of point-and-click adventure game mechanics interspersed with logic puzzles and riddles of all sorts, Miracle Mask is solid in all areas (except for the tinny, soulless music), but doesn't really excel in any way. The puzzles are mostly good without bringing anything new to the table at this point (it's the fifth game in the series, after all), the story lacks direction without ever getting annoying, and the enhanced 3D graphics look very pretty even as it's clear something was lost in the transition from two-dimensional illustrations. Still, there is plenty to do, and any puzzle fan is unlikely to be disappointed.
I wasn't sure about buying Professor Layton: and The Miracle Mask as I didn't have a 3DS, but I decided it was time for an upgrade and took the plunge. I'm over the moon with this game. The puzzles are engaging and offer hours of enjoyment. The 3D effects add a new dimension to the game.
I very much enjoyed this game. The puzzles were inventive and entertaining. The new, animated art style was charming and worked very well in 3D. I also enjoyed the story and the characters. Plus having daily puzzles delivered to you is a wonderful way of extending the game. After having completed all 150 puzzles, mini games and collectables, I feel that my 40 hours playing were a pleasure and I look forward to purchasing the next instalment in the series.
Professor Layton: and The Miracle Mask is another excellent release in the Layton series. It offers terrific value with approximately 150 puzzles to solve. There is also a new puzzle to download every day for a year, for a total puzzle count in excess of 500. The 3D effect is used well throughout the game, not just in the puzzles. There are also the customary mini-games and post-game content to unlock which further enhances the longevity of the game. The graphics have been upgraded since the last release on the DS. The story is also interesting. The production values throughout the game are of a very high standard and I would thoroughly recommend this game to anyone.
This is a fantastic puzzle game and is a brilliant update to the original DS releases with a new cell shaded graphical look. if your a fan of professor layton then you already know your going to enjoy this. if you've never played these games before then i suggest you purchase this as well as the other 3 games as they will keep you entertained well into next year.
Having played all of the previous four games in the Professor Layton series on the DS, and knowing that Professor Layton: and the Miracle Mask one was coming out for the 3DS was one of my reasons for upgrading to the new console. This game does not disappoint. It takes a little while to get used to the new way of navigating around the locations however it isn't really a problem and finding the hint coins (should you need them) is no longer a matter of tapping everywhere. Luke, Emmy and the Professor return and the all-new puzzles are as fun as always - often making you think outside of the box. Mini-games make a welcome return and this game also comes with 365 downloadable puzzles (outside of the main game) which are being released one each day since release. I've played 9 of them so far and they're a lovely little addition to an already great game. If you've played the Layton games before then definitely buy this. If you've not but have a 3DS and fancy some puzzles then definitely try this game - it's well made and doesn't feel too short like some of the others I've played!
