Really all that needs to be said is if you like the first one, you will like this one. I enjoyed both a great deal. Will be playing the 3rd one soon.

Phoenix Wright is undoubtedly my #1 video game series of all time. Sorry Devil May Cry, Metal Gear, God of War, Grand Theft Auto! No other game(s) have captured my heart as much as the Phoenix Wright series has. When I found out there was a sequel, I had to go and get it ASAP.

Gameplay/Story - 10/10(can I go higher than this?)

It's been one year since the first Ace Attorney. Phoenix has improved no doubt in his defense skills(not self-defense). Edgeworth has been saved by Phoenix. Everything is going just dandy. But, what's this? Edgeworth has chosen death! Phoenix shakes off his memories of Edgeworth and continues his attorney legacy in his sequel. Not much has changed since the first Ace Attorney, gameplay-wise. You still have the same press and object style of gameplay. However, Phoenix now has a new tool of getting information from people. The Magatama. With the Magatama, Phoenix can tell when people are lying and he can engage them in mini-investigations in order to break their "psyche-locks" and get the true story.

I'm trying to make my reviews less "wordy". So, you'll just have to play Justice For All on your own to get the story. Ah, what the heck! I'll squeeze in some of the first case for you.

SPOILER ALERT SPOILER ALERT

A policewoman named Maggey Byrde(who calls their child MaggEY? Or "Phoenix"? Just joking!) is accused of murdering her boyfriend(Deja Vu, anyone? coughAAcough), Dustin Prince. It's up to Phoenix for the sixth time(fifth not counting the extra case for AA) to save his client. But, it's gonna be hard when he loses his memory by getting a fire extinguisher to his head.

SPOILERS OVER SPOILERS OVER

Graphics - 8/10

Again, for the sake of space and time, I'll sum it up in five words. Ready? They're the same as AA's.

Sound/Music - 10/10

The sound is the same. The music however, has changed. The cornered theme is energetic and feels like the world is gonna end.

Overall - 10/10

If you liked AA, get JFA. Fourth case = love.
