    Professor Layton vs. Phoenix Wright is certainly one of the best releases on the 3DS this year, and it shouldn’t be missed.

    A nearly-perfect crossover between two of the most beloved series of the last decade... no objection!

    While not as challenging or involved as the best games from either series, this is still a crossover fans of both Wright and Layton don't want to pass up.

    The game is extremely generous with its hidden hint coins, with hundreds of the things hidden in every background. You'd have to be a full-on Kardashian to use them all.

    In light of the fact that both series got strong new entries over the last year, this unlikely meeting of heroes is quite impressive. The pace regularly changes enjoyably between these two distinct kinds of gaming. That they never really mesh is probably the games biggest singular issue. But, as we surely can all agree, there's way worse problems to have.

    Professor Layton vs. Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney may not live up to the hype we’ve given it after all these years, but it’s still a great game that celebrates both franchises well.

    Impossible not to be disappointed after so long a wait. But when one witnesses the result, on will probably think that this cross-over wasn't meant to be. I love spaghetti, and I love chocolate spread, but with a little thinking, I wouldn't mix the two. Maybe that's how they should have contemplated this wedding between Layton and Wright. Even the brilliant production values, 3D transition and exquisite music are not enough to make us forget about the dull situations one has to repeat over and over again. It's the poorest of the Phoenix Wrights and the most laughable Layton.

However, its biggest flaw is that it is aimed at fans of both PL and AA, and people who have only played one of the game series may be frustrated at some points. But, once you learn the ropes of the game, said "biggest flaw" becomes insignificant, and the game will become an experience you will not soon forget. Expand

It sacrifices some of bothThis unique crossover is a powerful draw for fans of either series, but it doesn’t make the most of its potential. It sacrifices some of both series’ challenge, and the alternate-universe story feels like a missed opportunity where there could have been more meaningful interaction between the worlds of Wright and Layton. The witty dialogue writing, however, is as charming and enjoyable as ever. Expand

Cuando lo vi anunciado me quedé asombrado y a la vez asustado de ver cómo sería el resultado de juntar dos leyendas y he de decir que no ha habido mejor manera de hacerlo.
    La historia es sencilla y algo predecible, sin embargo encaja con la mecánica de ambos juegos. Los juicios se hacen algo repetitivos y los puzzles son más sencillos que en otras entregas, así que la dificultad deja mucho que desear. Por su parte los personajes están bien diseñados y las transiciones a modo de una pequeña escena levantan el ánimo para desbloquear todas.

    Es un juego bonito y un gran homenaje a las dos familias de fans.
    Nota real: 7,75/10
