It's so good! Deserves a lot more then it's getting at the moment I think. I mean, not only is it a fantastically designed game, it comes with the full source code and fantastic mod support. People should be buying it if only to give props to such a good business practice.
Both Layton and Phoenix Wright kind of messed up their series' potential pretty early on as far as I'm concerned. They're the kind of games that a lot of people would like enough to really want a second helping pretty quickly, but thirds and fourths? A bit much. Gotta drip it out, make 'em wait! It's the only way to make people excited again about what will inevitably be roughly the same experience.
@NintendoNaut: His points aren't entirely without merit in my opinion, though maybe some of them are de-meriting at the same time. I don't know very much about the dude, but from that one article and what you're telling me, I think you might want to cut him some slack for trying at the very least. He's not laying over and dying like so many games journalists do - at least he has an opinion outside of the usual "Graphics are pretty, controls B guud". He doesn't actually seem to be a plain idiot either.
