Fun and Funny

Harvey Birdman is a fun distraction that is worth a rental when you need a break from some of the more demanding games in your Q.
The setup is simple. As Harvey, you must explore crime scenes, gather evidence and then take it all to trial. The exploring and gathering part of the game is quite simple, while the trials are a little more complicated and require some deductive reasoning. Here, you will be forced to go over witness statements and either "Press" them for more info or "Present" evidence that contradicts their statement. Younger players may find themselves lost during trials (I did!).
Only the Wii Remote is utilized, the only action required is to point and click.
For fans of the show, the game is a must since you are basically playing interactive episodes. The writing is as funny as anything from the series, and most of your favorite characters can be found here. The animation is straight from the series and the game looks and sounds great on the Wii.

This game makes a great rental title and is tons of fun for fans of the Harvey Birdman television show. However, I played through it in about 2-3 hours.


The cases were simply too easy/predictable to put up much of a challenge, especially for fans of the Phoenix Wright series (on which this is based). However, if you take it as a very long interactive Harvey Birdman episode, it really is a blast for the 2-3 hours you play it.


In conclusion, this game was quite entertaining, albeit short, and made me really wish they'd release a Wii Phoenix Wright game already. I highly recommend renting it, just be aware you will be sending it back the next day.

Fairly Short, Funny but very frustrating with the system of trial and error item selection.

Thumbs down in my opinion.
