Summary: Those who say there isn't much gameplay are dead on. It is really like you are reading a cheezy detective novel with a repeating jazz background. You have some control over the order in which you do things, but otherwise things are fixed. It is impossible to fail.
Summary: This game is horribly written, annoying and so boring I keep falling asleep while playing it. The plot/ gameplay is irritatingly linear, so much that you can't explore, advance or make your own decisions based on the plot.
Summary: I bought this expecting it to resemble either Hotel Dusk or the Phoenix Wright series. It really is exactly like an electronic choose-your-own-adventure novel. There is little to no interacting with surroundings, and all gameplay is carried out through questioning people by means of multiple choice.
Summary: In summary: + great character designs, artwork + nice dialogue, good localization + excellent jazzy soundtrack + great price - too linear - not very challenging - many typos in translation - predictable and/or nonsensical endings Overall, the game is entertaining.
Summary: First things first, I need to warn anyone reading this that this game is not exactly a sequel to the original "Jake Hunter: Detective Chronicles". In fact, this game includes all the cases from the original game, plus some new ones. So, it's more like a remake of the original with new content.
Summary: This game is really more of an illustrated detective book. There's really no game to it as there are no consequences for incorrect choices and you just keep selecting places to go, things to look at or people to talk to.
Free Choice? Your choices are more limited than it appears!

Summary: The "Ace Attorney"/"Gyakuten Saiban" series is the standard for point-and-click adventure games on the Nintendo DS, and will likely remain that for a long while. However, if Aksys keeps pushing this series, mystery lovers may very well have a nice alternative to the comedic and frantic world of...
