I think this game is good for anyone who like detective work...if you are interested in being a lawyer, read books on philosophy then. I just hope the game would retain the original Japanese names for the character instead of "Nick" or "Wellington" when you can tell by the way the characters dress that they are Japanese!
Dont get me wrong, I did enjoy this game. I gave it a 5 rating because there is to much talking between actual game play, and i didn't enjoy that. If your someone that enjoys this, Id say you'd enjoy the game as about a 9 because the story is pretty good. As for myself, the lack of INTENSE DEFENSE ATOURNY ACTION that I loved so much about this game in the long talking areas made me unhappy... Also, when you lose you must go back way way far, and thats a bummer too. Worth a try at least.
Even this colorized cartoonish version of the legal system is boring. They really tried, and it shows, but this game get dull, and repetitive quick. You really have to love mysteries to suffer through the tedious journey Phoenix Wright drags you through.
