The first game had 5 cases, including a bonus case made specifically for the DS. After searching many reviews and finding no answer, I feel inclined to tell you this game has no such feature either. However, it does have 5 well written and very suspenseful cases.
The story begins 5 years ago with Phoenix Wright on trial for murder, represented by his soon-to-be mentor Mia Fey. The trial takes a surprising turn and ends up throwing into motion all of the next few cases in the game.
The cases involve the mentioned case against Phoenix Wright as a college art student, a heinous villain known as MaskDeMasque who is terrorizing the city with thefts of precious treasures (done with excellent murder mystery style characters, including a hybrid Sherlock Holmes/Backstreet boy.) and a poisoning with a well loved accident prone policewoman.
You get nearly every character from the previous games here. Maya Fey, Mia's younger sister with the powers of a medium, Pearl Fey, a feisty 9 year old with romantic delusions about Phonix and Maya, Prosecutor Franciska Von Karma with her trademark whip, Wise Mia Fey in her ghost form and younger self, and all the other characters you know well.
I don't want to spoil anything, but if you played the previous two games and loved the characters this game be at the top of your list. Strapped for cash? Take Detective Gumshoe's advice, "Just buy freeze dried noodles and hang in there!" Buying freeze dried noodles would be a great way to save up to pick up this gem, and you'll have hours of time spent with characters you love. You won't want to leave them behind.
So, yes. What can i say? Obviously if you have the other 2 games then get this one too! i think they should definately be played in order otherwise you wont enjoy them as much. Getting to play Mia was amazing, even though her cases werent very long. Getting to play the other character (even though it's been revealed here who it is, i wont say) was even more amazing because that person is my favourite character. And new characters were very funny like the deluded detective 'Luke Atmey' (i liked the play on words with his name) and coffee obsessed Godot. although i wasnt sure of him at first. He wasnt so bad once i learned his story. The 5th and final case was absolutely amazing! It would be easy to get confused with that storyline but because it was so well written, any confusion was short lived and it all became very clear what was going on. And that's the key with the Phoenix Wright games, they are brilliantly written. I hope the Apollo Justice games are the same too. I will be playing that soon enough i'm sure!
Now, never before have i had to use 'walkthrough help' with these games, but on the 5th case, i did a tiny bit. but once i used it, i realised that i should of worked out what evidence needed presenting, so i was peeved at myself! So, at last, the game ended, and i got a bit choked to be honest. I have so enjoyed been in Phoenix's world, meeting Maya and Pearl and Mia and detective Gumshoe (a fab character) and Miles Edgeworth and the one who has been there causing trouble at some point in every game Larry Butz! He creases me up all the time. I shall definately miss all of them, and will enjoy re-playing the games forever! I just hope i can rely on Apollo Justice to bring some more characters i will love. Bye Phoenix and the gang. Thanks for the hours of enjoyment i had in your world. :)
This game plays like the other two; you'll need to question witnesses, break through their lies, and then find the truth on the stand to clear your client of guilt. While the second game introduced the innovation of the psyche lock - a feature that is available again here - Trials and Tribulations focuses mostly on story innovations, specifically the chance to play as Mia in a shifting narrative. The cases are more heavily connected than before, to the point where you'll be finding clues for the final case in the opening scenes.
As with the other games of the series, the defining feature of Trials and Tribulations is its unique style of storytelling and presentation. Over the top characters and situations abound, and Phoenix will find himself constantly over his head as you yell "Objection!" into the microphone out of blind faith alone. As it advances, though, Trials and Tribulations gets a touch more serious than previous installments.Read more ›
