I'm perfectly okay with reading and moving from place to place to search for more info. The movement could have been better without having to go to specific places to gain access to more options, though(at least after the 1rst time). If this was a movie or book the courtroom interjections and shaking screen effects would have been edited out because they really slow down the story and don't add anything important. I've never played any of the other games in the series but didn't have any problems understanding this one. Just like books/movies it adds depth to know the preceding plots but it's not absolutely necessary to enjoy this one. If you have the patience to reread alot to descipher the inconsistencies in a testimony etc. and like crime dramas/mysteries this game is worth a try but if you only want to zip through so you can get on with the next new thing this probably isn't the game for you.
i havent played this game, but it does look good. i dont intend to play it because of this: its not about pheonix wright. he is in the game, but instead, you play as apolllo justice. i dont really understand the point of changing the main character.
i never played one of these games but i was intrested for some time the games not bad it really makes you think outside the box and you screaming into the mic HOLD IT or OBJECTION in public its intresting to see how people react its. Not a bad game but it seemed like a wierd soap operea its worth a try.
