5.0 out of 5 stars Puzzle Solvers At Law August 30, 2014
The most recent main entry in the venerable "Ace Attorney" franchise had one phrase uttered dozens of times throughout its hit-or-miss story: "the dark age of the law." It referred to the fact that corruption in the legal system had become rampant, with forged evidence pushing forward cases in which the "ends justified the means." To a lesser extent, that's how I've felt about the game industry as of late. Giant games boasting most preorders in history or developed by some big, AAA studio who developed some other massive franchise are dominating the market. Trailers with gameplay that is, beyond a shadow of a doubt, fabricated and not indicative of the final product. The ends justify the means, just so long as the big companies get their profit. It's instilled me with a healthy dose of bitter cynicism about gaming in general, and for a while there, I felt like I wasn't going to be able to keep on reviewing games, or pursuing a career in that vein. There just wasn't enough to keep me going.

Yet there were some bastions of hope. Some of the upcoming Fall titles look engaging, the return of survival horror into the marketplace is great, and, more related to this review, Nintendo has put up its dukes again and started pounding into the competition again. Given that I love the company dearly, and that I obviously am heavily invested in the "Ace Attorney" franchise, this title was always a no-brainer purchase for me. In fact, it was one of the reasons I wanted a 3DS, when it was announced way back in 2010. I didn't know how good it would be, though. In fact, I had no idea that one game could singlehandedly restore my faith in video games, and my love of them. But that's what's happening with "Professor Layton vs Phoenix Wright Ace Attorney.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent Game! August 31, 2014
By Mattyim
For someone who has played every game for both series, PLvAA is very well done.

The Ace Attorney sections are much, much better than what Dual Destinies had to offer. It is really refreshing to see both Maya and Phoenix defending in court again. I was very impressed with how the witch trials were handled. Shu Takumi designed the scenarios, if that gives more insight. As stated in a recent Iwata Asks interview, this is Phoenix and Maya's most recent debut since 2004, so I was pumped since this game's first announcement.

The Layton sections serve more as an enhanced investigation mode, while retaining the Layton charm. I loved all of the dialogue it had to offer.

Professor Layton and Phoenix Wright come together in one of the better crossovers to have come out in recent years.

5.0 out of 5 stars Ace Attorney fan? Do it-- buy it now! September 4, 2014
Verified Purchase
Is Professor Layton vs. Phoenix Wright without its flaws? Absolutely not. Let's start with the name, for one-- there's only one situation where our two main protagonists could truly be said to be "versusing" each other, and Ace Attorney fans will be quite unsurprised when they discover how it all plays out. Nevertheless, I have plowed through this game since it arrived on my (metaphorical) doorstep on Friday, and it's a winner.

The game starts off with a degree of over-the-top ridiculousness that matches some of the very best moments from Wright's previous adventures (I should probably note that I'm a long-time Ace Attorney player; this game has definitely piqued my interest in the Layton franchise though), and gets you acquainted with our protagonists in short order. The plot gives them plenty of room to grow and be interesting people, but still leaves you ample opportunity to explore the delicious world that is Labyrinthia.

The mishmash between Ace Attorney and Layton gameplay elements can seem a bit weird here and there, and as another reviewer pointed out hint coins can make courtroom sequences a little too straightforward. That said, sometimes I found it helpful to get out of Ace Attorney's classic problem of moon-shot logical leaps (which are slightly more forgivable when we consider the world these trials take place in). Still, do not think that you've seen it all because you've played Ace Attorney before-- the mob cross-examinations are an intriguing idea and are often genuinely more fun in comparison to Phoenix's single-witness one-on-ones in the main games.

There's not a whole lot more I can say besides that-- the game is beautiful, the soundtrack sublime, and the plot, while not hole-free weaves a story rich enough to hold your interest. Absolutely a buy!

3.0 out of 5 stars Highly Anticipated but Ultimately Disappointing September 16, 2014
Verified Purchase
It somewhat pains me to give one of my favorite series only three stars, but there are too many problems not to be honest with other fans.

I love PW and have a moderate appreciation for Layton. Seeing this crossover being planned for a few years had me excited. In the end I've been left with disappointment. I won't spoil anything.

First the positives:

+Wonderful artwork and 3-D.
+Decent voice acting
+some fun twists on courtroom battles
+runs you about 20-25 hours

Negatives:

-with three characters on screen the framerate takes a nosedive--it's really bad
-not very cathartic cases/court-scenes. They all seem bite-size and none of them really end in a satisfying way
-still the same boring Layton formula of "everyone has a puzzle."
-can't hold "B" to skip dialogue you've heard already [Really annoying]

The biggest thing for me is that the ending becomes such a ridiculous, unbelievable mess that it's hard to suspend your belief for the sake of the story. Moreover, there are no consequences whatsoever and it simply leaves you with no satisfaction for having "solved the mystery." Granted, the beginning is pretty neat, but no story should be judged on its parts but on the whole experience. The journey, or rather its quality, regressed until it came to a screeching, disappointing halt.

There was a lot of care put into this game (minus the always-bad Capcom voices) and for fans of either series you probably already got this. The story is the major killer of this game. Phoenix Wright: Dual Destinies is the superior PW game in almost every way including an awesome twist and ending. This game, while some of the twists are fun, simply "ends" because it was time to end the story, not because the story felt complete.

I certainly enjoyed the journey, mostly, but in the end I can't recommend this game to non-fans of the series.
