I admit it. I hate Professor Layton. Not the game, although the game wasn’t the best I’ve ever played. [More about the game is in my review on Professor Layton, on Suite101.] It is just his annoying character, like his mind is always floating in the clouds. Drawing similarities from Holmes and Watson, Layton (like Holmes) is extremely cruel to his young apprentice in that he never really tells him what is going on in his mind. He also has a very tender spot for beautiful women, humoring them in a manner that is simply disgusting. Then there is his voice. Did it have to be so lofty?
