Doctor Lautrec and the Forgotten Knights 

 

I had such high hopes for Doctor Lautrec and the Forgotten Knights on the Nintendo 3DS. I purchased this game with my own money because I thought it might be a really good one. Sadly that thought was misplaced. Doctor Lautrec and the Forgotten Knights is a puzzle game where the puzzles are always changing. Sort of like Professor Layton. But the quality is not there, and Doctor Lautrec and the Forgotten Knights does all kinds of odd things.

What kinds of odd things? Well there is goddess worship, spirits that are used to fight in these weird battles. The characters in Doctor Lautrec and the Forgotten Knights are constantly insulting one another. It seems that everyone in Doctor Lautrec and the Forgotten Knights thinks they are smarter than everyone else. This barrage of insults gets old quickly.

The anime cut scenes bring the story along at key points. In the beginning it happens way too often for me. Which made finding a time to save extremely annoying. There is also some enticement to lust issues in Doctor Lautrec and the Forgotten Knights. I have to ask why? This is an adventure puzzle game. Why is that needed?

I came to the language issues in Doctor Lautrec and the Forgotten Knights, and it reinforced my whole why line of questioning. The voices are adequate, even if it sounds like they are reading lines from a script. I enjoyed the music in this Nintendo 3DS hand held video game.

Doctor Lautrec and the Forgotten Knights is about as clear as mud when it comes to figuring out some of the puzzles. I failed some of them over and over again. The game kept telling me the same thing which was not helpful the first time. Other times the puzzles are so easy they bored me to tears. The whole battles with these spirits we control is one of the worst parts of this game.

Doctor Lautrec and the Forgotten Knights had such potential, and wasted it away trying to get that ‘T’ for Teen rating. Not sure why the ESRB did not comply with that attempt. Instead they gave it a highly questionable E10+ rating. There is too much content in Doctor Lautrec and the Forgotten Knights that detracts from the story. I understand trying to do something different - but some things do not work.

Sequels need to correct the lengthy list of flaws.
