Excerpt: Game: Harvey Birdman: Attorney at Law Genre: Cartoon Lawyer Simulator Platform: PSP, PS2, Wii (reviewed on Wii) With the popular Japanese lawyer series Phoenix Wright selling well in both hemispheres, it was only a matter of time before someone else tried to replicate the fun and addictive formula. Porting the awesome and wacky cartoon lawyer Harvey Birdman into video game form seemed like a natural move.
Summary: 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
