This started as a PC game... not something to be proud of. TV show itself had been okay but like most game shows tends to become a bit monotonous in the long run. The game though had been crap. The idea was good ( principle of doing small challenges to obtain something important ) but the execution had been horrible. Controls had been awful and the puzzles not really challenging ( except the light puzzle one... but if you want this go play Spyro on the NDS ). On of the main problems is that the original Fort Boyard challenges are centered around strength, agility or speed which all three are difficult to make in a game so they resorted back to push-button puzzles ( or place token X at place Y ) which worked in a game.
EDIT: Side note. This one is most probably based on the NDS version which is based more on the show. The original PC version has been based on the same location but had a different ( crappy story ).
