  • Excerpt: You may have heard about a little series on the Nintendo DS called Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney. It's an enormously popular wave of games published by Capcom for Nintendo's platforms, and their entire premise is precisely as the game title indicates: advocating. You are an attorney, and through a series of events, the goal here is to prove your case by putting to use evidence you've collected and testimony you've heard.

Harvey Birdman: Attorney At Law Review

  • Excerpt: In Harvey Birdman: Attorney At Law for the Wii, PlayStation2, and PSP, the developers at High Voltage Software didn't actually make a Harvey Birdman game; they made a Harvey Birdman DVD (and UMD) episode collection that you have to constantly click through to progress in each story. Sure, there are gameplay elements, but they're largely inconsequential, an itch in each of the game's five episodes that you periodically notice long enough to scratch, yet often forget is...
  • Pros: Great storylines that fit nicely into the show's style of humor, Sharp graphics, Nearly all of the show's voice cast is on hand
  • Cons: Gameplay barely exists, and what's there is forgettable, You can beat the whole thing in about four hours, No Stephen Colbert, and the soundalike actor sucks

  • Conclusion: Attorney At Law ultimately falls in line with what a Harvey Birdman game should be. After all, if you're going to make a silly game about courtroom drama, there are limits to the number of ways you can actually make that interesting. Regardless, even if it does conceptually hit the mark, the execution of the rather sparse gameplay doesn't quite cut it. You'll actually forget you're even playing a game for long stretches, which is kind of a double-edged sword.

Harvey Birdman: Attorney at Law

  • Conclusion: Just to reiterate one more time, Harvey Birdman: Attorney at Law is an interactive episode of the TV show. Whether that is good or bad is up to you to decide. It's really something for the fans, as anyone out of the loop would probably be severely disappointed. With just five cases and its short length, I question whether this is worth a purchase to anyone besides the die-hards of the show.
