Latest Microreviews on Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney
Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney (NDS) Review written Monday, December 15th, 2014 at 07:44 pm.
The game that makes you want to become an attorney yourself. With its engaging plots, well-timed humor and memorable characters. It also has an astounding level-of-detail to its mysteries, and requires you to pay attention at all times in order to uncover the truth. Each game in the franchise is brilliant in their own respect.
Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney (NDS) Review written Saturday, May 10th, 2014 at 09:28 pm.
A really under-rated game, has an awesome story, really cool music, and a really different and brilliant gameplay.
Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney (NDS) Review written Friday, November 8th, 2013 at 04:35 am.
Immense Fun and awarding experiences! OBJECTION!!! This game is the best game in the world according to this evidence. Clearly a contradiction!
Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney (NDS) Review written Tuesday, July 30th, 2013 at 11:36 pm.
I never really "got" the hype for this game for some reason. But I gotta say I really enjoyed the courtroom phases: they were tense and exciting, and the storyline could often surprise the player. The point-n-click style parts weren't that much fun, but the court parts totally made up for that.

Fantastic courtroom drama action with memorable characters, interesting plots, and laugh out loud moments.
Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney (NDS) Review written Friday, June 7th, 2013 at 09:11 pm.
I held back for a while, but then i couldn't resist, i HAD to play this series, starting with Phoenix wright: Ace attorney. The story of this game is incredible, and the characters are very memorable, including Miles Edgeworth, Dick gumshoe and of course, Maya Fay. The only problem i have with this game is that the investigations can get tedious and boring, especially later on. The court segments have some of the most intense moments in any game i have ever played. Although not really a problem, the court segments follow a similar pattern, but that doesn't stop them from being shocking, with plot-twists showing up every now and then. The court segments can also be a bit easy, but that adds to the narrative.

Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney (NDS) Review written Wednesday, March 13th, 2013 at 04:26 pm.
I'm really glad that I got into the Ace Attorney series. Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney features a wide cast of unique and likable characters, deep and thought out criminal cases and great animations. Capcom focused on great story elements and simple playability instead of gimmicky touchscreen/microphone controls. The soundtrack is outstanding and emphasizes the thrilling atmosphere in court battles greatly. The same can be said for any other Ace Attorney game as they are all of high-quality. There are some spelling mistakes in the German version of this game but that's forgivable as the dialogs are still great and often funny.

Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney (NDS) Review written Wednesday, June 20th, 2012 at 08:50 pm.
It's a game about lawyers! And it's an adventure! It couldn't be worse, could it? Well, surprisingly this game is awesome. Even if you can't control the story (it's most like a book than a game) this is surely one of the best experiences I ever had on my DS. The characters are so lovely and charismatic, the plot is so twisted, funny and crazy, well, everything fits perfectly. It was 20 hours, 20 good hours that I spent with this title. I hope I'll see Mr. Wright, Mr. Edgeworth, the Fey sisters, Dectetive Gunshoe and the Skye sisters again, I need to scream 'OBJECTION!' again... I'm wondering if the second game is as good as this.
