Product Description

Players star as rookie defense attorney Apollo Justice as he visits crime scenes, questions key witnesses and collects vital evidence before stepping into the courtroom to prove his clients' innocence. Facing Apollo across the courtroom is the highly talented and flamboyant prosecutor Klavier Gavin who, in addition to being a legal genius, is also lead singer with Gavinners, a highly successful rock band with a string of hits to their name. He may be young and inexperienced but Apollo's confident manner and passion, coupled with his unique ability to uncover witnesses' lies by studying their body language, will prove invaluable assets in the courtroom as he pleads the case for the defense. Thankfully, Apollo is not alone and is aided both in and out of the courtroom by his assistant Trucy, a mysterious female magician. Apollo also receives invaluable advice from his mentor the ultra-cool Kristoph Gavin, elder brother of Klavier, whose perfect logic and natural instincts have won him numerous cases and the respect of his colleagues.

4.0 out of 5 stars A new place for Justice! February 27, 2008
By Jean B.
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
Apollo Justice is the 4th in the series of the three previous Phoenix Wright games. The new main character: Apollo, many PW fans might find this to be somewhat of a disappointment (that is, at a glance.) Although once you get into the story (with Phoenix helping you along the way) you'll find that it's ultimately worth the ride.

The amount of detective work you get to do is increased. Take note though that most of the new stuff you get to do is only used a few times in each case. Also like Phoenix's magatama, here we have Apollo's weapon: The Perceive System. This feature is used throughout most of the game. It is utilized fairly well and testimonies do not solely rely on this (evidence is still used to point out most contradictions.)

You will miss a lot of the main characters, basically because of what Phoenix Wright's story and background was built on. Since you play as Apollo you kind of start his story, introducing new and intriguing characters. But you also backtrack as to why Phoenix is the protagonist no longer (and more!) You get a cameo appearance and Ema Skye - an old character from the first PW game appears as a main character.

Overall, I really enjoyed this game. However it felt a bit empty in the end. I felt it was too easy, and it's shorter - with only 4 cases! And although the premise (for a specific case) was really fun and a great idea, it turned a little weak in the end because you already know what to do for the final round. It was better than I expected, considering that I was a bit skeptical about this new main character (and how it all tied in.) It is very fitting to the series and a sequel should be coming out ... eventually (It was announced in Japan but with no further details or known progress.)

Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
As your defense attorney boss, Kristoph Gavin says, "'Justice' doesn't start small." Indeed! If you are a fan of the first three Ace Attorney games, there is absolutely no good reason for you to buy this game and love it. Don't get a rom for it, or borrow it, rent it, or any of that crap. Support a sequel for Apollo Justice by buying yourself a copy because I guarantee you will love it.

Ever since the end of Trials and Tribulations, I have wondered, will Apollo Justice be able to top this? For four (very) long months, I waited to find out the answer, and was squealing with delight when I finally got it. What should you expect in getting this game? While we don't see the Fey family, Maya, Mia, or Pearly, we do get the return of our hero Phoenix Wright, and Ema Skye as our new detective (Do note that you get to see Gumshoe again in one of the cases). There is also the return of the ancient Judge, and we even see Doctor Hotti and Mike Meekins once.

Graphically, the game has taken a big leap. Aside from the graphics being more crisp, smooth and fluid, we also get some nice new 3D video! This adds a very nice touch and brings out the graphical capabilities of the DS and gives a whole new dimension to the Ace Attorney series. Characters are as kooky and crazy looking as ever, and the final case's big baddie breakdown is absolutely insane.

The music is also cleaner and while not as intensely exciting as the first and third game, there are still a lot of catchy songs that fit appropriately in serious and silly situations. I personally loved the courtroom music in the first Ace Attorney game, and let it be known that others who feel the same way will find themselves in for a very pleasant treat at two points in the game.

Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
Pros:
-Graphics and sound truly are a step up for the series
-Gameplay retains the same PW charm
-Forensics add significantly to the fun factor of the game
-Chapter 2 is the gameplay pinnacle of the series to date

Cons:
-Story has continuity issues
-Still a very linear series
-Solutions can be obscure and frustrating at times
-Everything past Chapter 2 is disappointing by comparison
-Not much to do with the PW story arc aside from a few returning characters
-Very likely the last game in the Ace Attorney series

Short synopsis: Still caters to a niche crowd---won't expand the Ace Attorney fanbase beyond what it already is. Retains all the flaws of the PW games without adding much beyond the semi-new (for US gamers) forensics system. Better introduction to the series for new people compared to the original PW games, but not by much. Fun for current fans of the series, although story will disappoint.

Detailed review:

Having played all of the Phoenix Wright games, I was looking forward to this one. Ultimately, it was a mixed experience. The game starts out strong, with the traditional court-only tutorial sequence (and with a hefty spoiler right at the start for those that have played the previous entries---I can't go into detail here). Users that have played previous entries in the series or are already familiar with the mechanics through other means can skip the following bracketed section.

[A summary of the game mechanics for the uninitiated:

The core of the game is still the same as it was in the Phoenix Wright games. A crime is committed, you take the case, and begin your own investigation.
