Doctor Lautrec and the Forgotten Knights is a puzzle-driven adventure, set in Paris during the late 1800s. Play involves isometric action and exploration, and more than 250 touch-screen brainteasers. Under construction, the Eiffel Tower reaches slowly toward the sky, as the adventure leads downward, into a vast labyrinth of sewers, abandoned mines, and forgotten catacombs below the city. Here, the game's heroes and villains seek powerful artifacts, known as "living treasures." Character design and artistic style are anime-influenced. The plot moves forward in cartoon cut-scenes. The game's mind-benders include tile matching, word problems, number grids, and other conventional puzzles, designed to be challenging.

Doctor Lautrec and the Forgotten Knights on the 3DS is an adventure game based around puzzle solving. It is set in Paris in the 19th century and the player must guide Doctor Lautrec and his assistant Sophie in a search for relics belonging to Louis the XIV of France.

One amazing feature that stands out, which has been noticed on the 3DS, is the sound quality the console can provide. It is fantastic. It has such great sound for such a little hand held device. The music for this game is simple as are many of the other features of this game. You can very much tell that this takes place in France. You are forced to know it by the music, but it does set a great mood for the game.

The characters of the game are very compelling, and the story is great, but it also seems to lose track of itself along the way and does not give enough information when you need it. The story is about Doctor Lautrec and his assistant, Sophie, and their search for relics belonging to the French king Louis the XIV, using maps as clues and the Doctor's razor sharp intellect as a guide.

This game is of fairly good quality if you are willing to spend a little time on it, as it has many unexpected twists and turns. There are not enough puzzles and they generally start off being much too easy. It is also a little drawn out because of how little time you actually play the games compared to how long you stare at the screen and listen to the characters.

The game can be split into two sections, above ground play and below ground play. When you are above the ground you are wandering through the open streets of Paris, but the underground gameplay is a little more fun as you have to navigate through underground passageways and this can get challenging especially since you have to dodge the many strategically placed guards. Underground is also where the majority of the puzzles can be found.

This game is a good game but does not live up its full potential. You keep playing along hoping for something a little more challenging later, but it just not happen. The puzzles start off relatively easy and do not get much more difficult later on, and even the storyline becomes weaker. The concept is great and the game is well presented it just lacks that extra touch that could make it so much better. The graphics are fine, the sound effects are simple but atmospheric. What could have been an excellent game has turned out an OK one.
