If Professor Layton and the Azran Legacy really is the end of an era, it's a fitting sign-off. Hershel Layton and his companions have been wonderful additions to the DS and 3DS systems, bringing gracious simplicity and charm with each release. This concluding entry captures the best of the new and old, and is indispensable to fans of the franchise. Farewell Professor, you truly have been a gentleman and a scholar.

With all of the things I like about The Azran Legacy, I’m hard-pressed to identify anything really negative about it. It hasn’t changed my life, but it has made me glad that I gave the Professor Layton series another chance. The series has changed and grown since their origins, so if you love puzzles, you should definitely pick this game up. Even if you haven’t played a previous entry, you will still enjoy it.

Professor Layton and the Azran Legacy is an amazing conclusion to the beloved puzzle series. Its variety and clever storytelling make it the most interesting and well-executed installment of the franchise, and it’s nice to see that after six games, Level-5 can keep surprising players with intriguing, surprisingly moving plots and hundreds of clever puzzles. I’m sorry to see the main series end, but if it must, this is exactly how to do it.

IGN (8.5 out of 10)

Professor Layton and the Azran Legacy brings a great series to a close in fine style. It doesn't take many risks with the established formula, but its story is engaging, intelligently written and compelling to the end.

Mit dem VermĂ€chtnis von Aslant verabschiedet sich Professor Layton in den wohlverdienten Ruhestand, wenngleich die eigentlich Ă€ltere Zusammenkunft mit Staranwalt Phoenix Wright hierzulande noch aussteht. Ungeachtet dessen stellt sein offiziell letzter Fall einen wĂŒrdigen, wenn auch eher routinierten als famosen Abschluss dar, der ihn, Emmy und Luke nicht nur rund um den Globus fĂŒhrt, sondern auch mehr RĂ€tsel als je zuvor beschert: Inklusive kostenlos herunterladbarer Bonusaufgaben harren ĂŒber 500 Knobeleien ihrer Lösung. Zudem gibt es neue Minispiele, aufschlussreiche Einblicke in Laytons Vergangenheit sowie austauschbare Suchaufgaben via StreetPass. Lob verdienen auch die charmante Inszenierung und professionelle Lokalisierung, obwohl es im offen strukturierten Mittelteil einigen erzĂ€hlerischen Leerlauf gibt. Das Finale versöhnt jedoch, wĂ€hrend die RĂ€tsel und Hinweise trotz Wiederholungen und nicht immer ĂŒberzeugender Einbettung gewohnt gut unterhalten.

Professor Layton bows out (for now) with his biggest and most adventurous puzzle-solving drama yet. If you’ve played the previous titles then you can pick up the latest entry in confidence. It’s another elegant compendium of conundrums held together by a brilliant Layton tale. If you haven’t then this isn’t the game to start with, but it is a fitting climax before the curtain falls.

Games TM (8 out of 10)

This time around far more of the puzzles do bear some relevance to the story, but even when they don't it doesn't matter; the game embraces its incongruence with its lighthearted in-jokes. The dozens of puzzles on offer do fall under a limited number of categories - jigsaws, maths problems, the traditional trick questions, and so on - but there's just enough variety to keep them fresh. And even when all of these are solved and the story comes to an end, the daily downloadable puzzles are like snapshots from our journey, a brief reminder of how nice it was to be there. If this really is the last Professor Layton game of its kind, that feeling will be much missed.

Gameplay (Benelux) (74 out of 100)

Laytons zesde en laatste avontuur biedt het urenlange denksportplezier dat de fans verwachten, maar verknoeit de broze balans tussen verhaal en puzzelgameplay die in de vorige delen wel goed zat.

Destructoid (7 out of 10)

All in all, Professor Layton and the Azran Legacy turns out about how fans of the series would expect. Over the course of the 25-hour campaign, players will enjoy charming dialogue from beloved characters alongside puzzles that run the gamut between boring and thought-provoking, all gussied up with top-notch art and animation. What it does to differentiate itself from previous entries in the series is mostly superficial, but Layton fans and puzzle lovers do not really need or want a great departure for the series. All we want is a puzzle-solving adventure, and Azran Legacy delivers a good one.

The Verge N/A

The continued adventures of a puzzle-loving archaeology professor from London and his young apprentice are nothing if not charming. But, in terms of how it plays, it's almost identical to every other Layton game before it. Across six games and two platforms, the series has barely changed at all. So why can't I stop playing it?
