Review: Doctor Lautrec and the Forgotten Knights

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.

I've been writing about video games for years and playing them even longer. You'll find me playing all types of games, old and new. Mega Man III is greater than Mega Man II.
