Summary: Okay i have to admit, this is a great game. I mean just the best overall (no comparison to the first games!), but i just have 1 problem. What happened to Iris+ Phoenix !?! Not to mention Gumshoe and Maggey! Plus i could only play the second and third games so i only know trucy by the wiki... NEI (not enough info!!!) but if i had just played this game out of the series then i would have no problems at all. LONG LIVE PHOENIX!!!
Summary: This is different from the phoenix wright in many ways. First is that this game takes place seven years after an event. phoenix is a main character but not the teacher to Apollo. The story is great, though I was a little disappointed by some of the characters. My main Question was WHAT THE HECK THEY DO WITH PHEONIX'S GIRL FRIEND, MAYA, AND PEARLS? The new "trilogy?" is excellent mix of old and new. The new cutscenes are excellent.
Summary: Before you start reading my review, I would like to say one thing. If you are interested in this game, you should really play the Phoenix Wright trilogy first before you play this. There are a lot of references in the game of those games. First off, I'll start with the storyline. I won't spoil anything. It's about a defense attorney who gets 4 cases and tries to get a "Not Guilty" verdict in all of them.
Summary: Though not quite as good as the original and Trials and Tribulations, Apollo Justice is still entertaining in its own right. It's a recommended buy for anyone who is a fan of the series. I also recommend Investigations, which is another solid, if not spectacular, entry in the series relative to the first and third games of the original Phoenix Wright trilogy.
Conclusion: After loving the previous three Phoenix Wright games, I was a bit sceptical that the Apollo Justice game just wouldn't match up (I know it sounds sad, but you get attached to the characters in PW!). I needn't have worried, however, as everything "felt" just the same and even Phoenix Wright was there in a background role.
Conclusion: I'd never heard of any of the Ace Attorney games before this (somewhat complusive) purchase, but i'm so glad I made the jump. This game has to be the best game i've played on the DS system so far, for so many reasons. Initially, I feared i'd made an error in buying this. The game seemed slow, the animation minimal. The game felt like a port of a japanese game that wouldn't translate as well as it should into English.
Conclusion: For those people who like point and click text-based games, this game should not be passed. As the Phoenix Wright story has ended, this game starts anew with rookie lawyer Apollo Justice and trains you in the art of law (not really).
