The game play was good but for some reason it didn't match up with Phoenix Wright.

I was thinking that I was going to be in court at one time another. Maybe that is the aspect that I missed.

I rented this and instantly remembered why I loved these games so much. Granted this makes some different changes but nothing makes it any less than it once was. Granted, most of the time your not even in the court room but I feel that it adds a little intrigue of acually questioning a person.

The fifth U.S. release of the Ace Attorney line has you in the pilot seat of long-time Phoenix Wright rival Miles Edgeworth. For those into the series, you'll like this one. Read on for details why.

First off, the game is easier. Much easier. The aimless location-bouncing, countless questions to suspects, and frustrating explorations of a crime scene are gone, or rather, streamlined. You're (usually) placed in one location at a time, with one or two suspects at a time, and the game helps you along quite a bit. It still has a challenge, but not a frustrating grind.

The evidence gathering is a bit odd; instead of everything going immediately into your notebook, you occasionally collect factoids that get filed away in Edgeworth's mind, under Logic. When you get two common threads to piece together, you're given something the appropriate evidence piece, or at least you move forward in the story.

The game is designed to make you feel like you're always in control. You're Miles freakin' Edgeworth, and nothing catches you off guard. The game is fun, and does a good job making it feel different from the previous iterations, giving it that Edgeworth polish.

In short, it's something fans of the series will like, and newcomers won't appreciate as much.
