Review: Doctor Lautrec and the Forgotten Knights

06 Jan

What sort of tomfoolery is this? A video game on a Nintendo handheld featuring a wise doctor and a young sidekick solving puzzles and unraveling a mystery that isn’t a Professor Layton title? Rubbish! A definite imitation of the sublime puzzle solving of the Professor Layton series, Konami’s Doctor Lautrec and the Forgotten Knights distinguishes itself with a variety of gameplay methods, unique visuals, and a handful of interesting puzzles. Is there room in this world for two top hat wearing puzzle solvers with British accents? No. No there is not.

This is how I felt playing this game

I had high hopes for this game. Imitation is the highest form of flattery (or so they say), and by that logic I was expecting a great romp of puzzle solving and fun accents. But Doctor Lautrec is a completely different breed of game, and that’s unfortunate.
