Summary: Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney, like all other Phoenix Wright games is more of a visual novel with mild puzzles to the logic. If your looking for interesting game play you will not find it here, most the game play that isn't just talking to people is just point and click style finding clues with a few mini games tossed in only a couple of times.
Good for afficionados of simple puzzle/logic-games

Summary: I've been reading good things about the Phoenix Wright series for years now, and I was excited to finally get a chance to play one now that I have a DS. I'm a fan of puzzle/logic-based RPGs, so this was really the perfect game for me. Most of it was pretty straight-forward, with interesting storylines and just enough puzzles and deductive reasoning for my tastes.
Summary: I'd like to give a perfect score, but the game is far too linear and almost not even a game. Its more like a book or show then game. The court cases and characters are really interesting and funny too sometimes. This game is all about reading text and talking to different people. There are moments when you need to think, but for the most part the game does all the work for you, you are just along for the ride.
Summary: As others have observed, the Nintendo DS--through accident or design, although since the end result is the same, who really cares?--seems tailor-made for the sort of graphic adventures that so many of us grew up with before LucasArts decided to make its name churning out cookie-cutter Star Wars games, and Sierra decided to slowly and painfully kill off all of their most established titles.
Summary: MAN OH MAN THIS old School Justice game Totally Blew My mind you have basically need to know ALOT about what happened and lot about the crime if you love a game that uses skills that are similar to CSI and Law & Order this game WOULD BE PERFECT!!!!!!
Phoenix Wright is definately not your average..........

Summary: I bought it not really having any expectations as to how the game play would be. To my suprise it was as fascinating as the premise led on it would be. A little verbose at times, but logically it always follows a steady stream of thought. I would recommend this title to anyone who is seeking a different kind of title.
Summary: I bought this on the high reviews that people gave for this game. Because of that, I had high expectations for it. The game offers 5 cases (I'm in the middle of the third) and harkens back to the age of text RPG adventures of the olden days. Pros: The game is well thought out. You are given chances to find clues and solve cases. So you are a mix between a PI and a lawyer.
Summary: The hilarity, adventure, wit and fun of this game is nothing shy of stupendous (amazing great, marvelous). It has a certain nostaglia to it with a new twist on the adventure/puzzle genre. Think of all the games that consumed our time back in the day such as King's quest, Police Quest, and Leisure Suit Larry and put it to the tune of trials, evidence and investigation with hints of an RPG, text adventure and anime and you'll land on Phoenix Wright.
Summary: Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney is a fun game. It's that simple. Graphics (4 out of 5): I would say the graphics are on par with most DS games. They could be better, but they don't retract at all from the gameplay. They are fun and in the same style as games like Sprung and Under the Knife. Audio (2 out of 5):The audio is where most DS games fall short. I am content with the graphic abilities of the DS, because quite simply the graphics don't make a good game.
