I'm 3 hours in and I've solved only 7 puzzles (beginning of case 2.) It feels unengaging and the plot so far is pretty dull. Does it pick up?

To me it felt as a long prologue to an unannounced future game. It becomes more interesting only during the last 2 cases and most of the questions remain unanswered anyway... Don't want to say more to avoid spoilers. Not a bad game, I actually enjoyed it, but it's one of the worst Layton titles so far in my opinion (both in terms of story and puzzles).

I loved all of 1 - 6, including the crossover and Mystery Room.
My tastes are unorthodox, however: DB < CV < LS < UF < AL < MM

Never. Although the last case is kinda decent. I didn't hate the game, but all six Professor Layton games are so much better than this one in every way: story, characters, puzzle quality, etc.

And for the record, I rank the six Professor Layton games this way: UF > AZ > CV = MM > DB >>>> LS, with the PW crossover somewhere in the middle.

Above post is about right, imo. I also love all of the first main six (DB > UF > CV > AL > MM > LS for me) as well as the crossover and Mystery Room.

This game isn't terrible, but it's not very engaging (story or puzzles), the characters aren't nearly as likeable as the other games' and it just feels like a casual mobile game which I guess is what they were going for, but as a result it has almost none of what I like about the series.

The game is s*** and a shame to the Layton series.

Not to mention the title's a lie. The main character is not Layton's kid.
