Ace Attorney's low point, but still good
3 December 2014
Summary: This is the "lesser" entry in the Ace Attorney series, a generally more forgettable adventure in an otherwise fantastic series. With that said, it doesn't take long to get through, and it's worth it for the character interactions and story, and what they lend to the unparalleled third entry: Trials and Tribulations.
Summary: The phoenix Wright games are unique, they're not for everyone and are a little out there with the scenarios that are presented to the player... But that's what makes them great. Justice for all is a fitting sequel to the first Phoenix Wright, memorable characters, witty dialogue, and a decent soundtrack (nothing as memorable as everyone's favorite cornered theme).
Summary: Let me begin by saying that I love the Ace Attorney series! I found all five games and have been making my way through them. This is the second game in the series after Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney. It retains a lot of the same gameplay mechanics. A murder occurs, you decide to help represent the defendant, you investigate the crime scene, and you go to court to defend your client. I believe there are only 4 cases, 1 less than the previous game.
Summary: The second installment in the Phoenix Wright series yields yet another story that weaves a complex web of mysteries, murder trials, and of course, "Objection!"s. It has some improvements over its prequel (Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney) with the health bar rather than the exclamation marks. This allows for penalties with varying degrees of magnitude.
Summary: Phoenix Wright is back in the second installment of this court room drama series. Reviewing this is fairly simple - if you have played the first one, you know exactly what you are getting. If you haven't played the first one - why are you reading this, go buy Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney and play that first :). This sequel follows a virtually identical format to the original - you are a defense attorney that must gather evidence and defend your client in a murder trial.
Summary: If you have played any of these games before, then you know what it is all about. The games are fun to play and move along the lines of reading a mystery novel. The characters are over the top funny and remind you of almost watching an Andy Griffith show. Only the Judge of the town is Barny Phife. Besides that, the game is fun, the mysterys are not all that hard to solve, though give you a challenge.
Summary: This is a fun game, more for adults than children, as there is none of the immediate gratification shoot-em-up action some kids expect. The beginning part of the game is a "training exercise" to familiarize the novice player with the game's structure and intent. After the first scenario this game becomes increasingly more difficult but never becomes impossible to play.
Summary: If you didn't like the original Phoenix Wright, look no further as this game is not for you. JFA is basically just four more cases using the same interface, same concept, and largely the same characters. Well worth its purchase price if you loved the original as much as I did, my only complaint would be that there are a lot of ways to expand on this concept and the developers seemed content to just rest on their laurels.
Summary: If you liked the previous Phoenix Wright game you should get this. It's basically the same gameplay with new stories. Unfortunately the new stories and characters aren't as interesting as those from the first game. Still, Phoenix fans should buy this sequel.
Summary: After playing the original Phoenix Wright, I looked forward to playing this game. It being a lawyer game, and while the rules are (I think) based on the Japanese criminal court system (hence it works differently from American court system), it is more of an adventure / detective game, which was refreshingly different in the current state of gaming. And it delivers, for the most part.
