Professor Layton vs. Phoenix Wright Ace Attorney
3 stars out of 4 Pitting a proper British professor against a slick-haired lawyer isn't the most compelling of matchups for a video game. But the versus part of "Professor Layton vs. Phoenix Wright Ace Attorney" is a little deceiving because two end up working together to solve a particularly vexing case involving a girl with a mysterious past. Scenes where you solve puzzles and brainteasers with Layton are interspersed with dramatic courtroom battles starring Wright. It's a charming crossover that could have used a bit more editing -- chatty conversations between characters often go on way too long.
