In this game, the player gathers up evidence from people they talk to and from searching around various locations. Then the player goes to trial and uses their evidence to prove contradictions in cross-examinations. Use the wrong evidence and be prepared to be penalized. The judge will not only penalize you but he will add insult to injury by...well insulting you in front of everyone. It DOES hurt.
There are about five or six chapters to complete and each one increases in difficulty, but it doesn't stop the fun!
In this game, there are five cases, and each one is incredibly engaging and thrilling! Without trying to reveal to much though, I'll warn that a decent amount of the game references cases from the first two Ace Attorney games, so be prepared for that if you haven't played them yet.
For those not in the know, you play a defense attorney in murder cases and you spend half the "game" investigating, and the other half in the courtroom defending.
I say "game" cause its more of a choose your own adventure book/point and click adventure game hybrid and you spend most of your time reading than doing anything else.
If that sounds incredibly boring to you, well... it very well might be. But I urge one and all to give it a chance anyway because what could be the dullest sounding thing in the world is saved by some of the best writing in video game history.
Simply put, this games script is pheonomenal.
The characters and situations are all interesting, charming, and incredibly funny. There are so many laugh out loud moments in this game whether it be the Canadian Judge who isn't sure how he feels about ANYTHING, or the extremely effeminate but incredibly big and muscular French Chef who constantly refers to himself as a woman, or the always hilarious Larry Butz. So many great parts with Larry, I can't even begin to describe all of them (wait till you see his "art"). You also get references to Midi-Chlorians (Star Wars), celebrity tabloid couples, and that stupid "Milkshake" song.
Don't get me wrong, the game is NOT at all loaded with pop culture references, but there's just enough hidden in there that every one of them takes you by surprise and makes you burst out laughing.
I don't know who's responsible for the script, whether the Japanese original has all this or if it was just the work of an INCREDIBLE localization team, but I can say without hesitation that this particular game is by a HUGE margin the funniest one of the three. And those other two games were riots.
All of it makes for one heck of a great read.
If you're looking for a game with action, there's always Contra 4. If you're looking for something thats nice to relax to and will make you laugh out loud, Phoenix Wright is your man.
This one is harder than the first one but he's getting through it.
