    Right of the bat you can see the game has a unique identity, and the story is interesting. However it's too short and there's a general lack of gameplay. It's basically a series of cutscenes interrupted by some puzzles you need to resolve. The puzzle itself are okay and some of them are pretty difficult

    Puzzle game with a not bad story line. Puzzles are not bad although would be a bit easy if you don't find layton to be taxing. The blending of puzzle and the story is done alright but the story is too short and feels like you are only at 50% mark when it ends. The use of 3ds features is appreciated and is actually quite appearing. I would say this could be a very good launch game. AsPuzzle game with a not bad story line.

As others mentioned the voice acting is not perfect, but i would cast a doubt of benefit to the motion picture. The game is full of motion presentation for all characters composed from series of still images. That's why there is no lip sync and the movement is repetitive. The voice acting is therefore presented "lively" to compensate for the loss. But maybe it is a bit over the board. Another thing worth mentioning is the creative writing. It successfully delivered the feel and taste as a popular show contestant which you receive fans and haters letters. The realm of 60's and the mystery atmosphere is also done successfully and you could enjoy immersing into the scene.

    A not bad game overall considered that it is from Ubisoft which specialized in full action games. I would say sometimes it feels like a game made under really tight budget but it is a good game for its current pricing.

    A pretty short game with interesting puzzles and storyline. Finished in 7 and a half hours. It was pretty alright but fell short on length and awkward voice actors.

    It takes the Professor Layton formula of combining puzzles with a mystery story, and puts it into 1960's Hollywood with mixed results. The puzzles aren't as good as Layton's, but most are decent enough. The story itself is actually very good, with some twists and turns that are truly unexpected. Sadly, the execution of the story is marred by some awkward voicework, and bad pacing.

    This isn't a criminal case of shovelware, but we can't give it a full stamp of approval either… and so whether it's worth investigating depends greatly on how much you enjoy playing portable detective.

    The range of puzzles on display is also sorely lacking for a game of this type. [Issue#118, p.114]

    A nice idea, and a solid story, undermined by a predictable structure and low-budget feel. [Christmas 2011, p.73]
