Fun but WAY too much clicking

Summary: The over all concept for the game was great, but am I the only one out here that wants to play for more than 10% of the time? Every time I started to get somewhere in the game, I had to click 100s of dialog boxes. Of course story is important, but these were just childish interactions between the characters that served no plot purpose.
Summary: Okay, so to try and distract myself from the wait for Professor Layton's second game, I bought this. I have not seen any puzzles yet in this game. I am stopping in the middle of the 2nd case and returning this game for credit. The storyline is okay. It is full of tongue in cheek characters and lines like "Detective Gumshoe". And the characters are overly dramatic- shouting and sweating often.
Summary: This was purchased for me as a gift because I'm about 6 months away from being a lawyer. I know that this is a Japanese game, and therefore the portrayal of the legal system won't necessarily translate perfectly for people used to the US legal system. But I can tell you that if you're a US law student/lawyer, the only thing you'll do while playing this game is pick out all the things that are wrong/inaccurate and yearn to make this like a real game of legal strategy that...
Summary: This game could not be any more boring if it tried. I tried to stick with it and play through to the end, but, I only made it as far as the third case. The most annoying part was the awful capcom graphics, and the constant shaking that seemed to go on.
Summary: After reading all the glowing reviews for this game, I cannot believe how incredibly dull and tedious it was. I gave up in the middle of the third case. The only reason I got that far was that I assumed I was missing something, that surely it must get better. I did not find this game to be challenging at all, it's a matter of reading through page after page of text, clicking on everything in a room to get all the evidence, and presenting everything you've got in court.
