Is Professor Layton's second adventure the worthy sequel fans are hoping for?

I've managed to get some exclusive dialogue extracts!

I say Luke, this bookcase reminds me of a rather devilish puzzle I once heard!

Just finished the first one. I am looking forward to the next and hope that the other two are released locally.

Loved the first game. I'll wait until the price on this goes down before I get it, though. I blew through Curious Village way too quickly to fully justify £30, no matter how awesome it all is.
Will the reviewer be sharing the code that comes with this game, to give us extra puzzles in Curious Village? ;) ^^
