I very much enjoyed my time playing this game. It had plot twists every time you think you have it figured out. The in court parts are the best part of the game; however the out of court stuff can get a bit annoying after you play the game for a while. you can save any time you want so if you have only 10 minutes to play you can get a bit done. but if you are anything like me then you will almost surely sit down for three hours at a time a polish off entire cases at a time. just a waring but if you don't like to read or solve puzzles don't bother but if that is your kind of game by all means at least give this game a try.If you find most games to easy them you will also want to try this, the cases take much longer and get harder. The lenth of the cases alone gives you a real Scence of acomplishment with each case you win.the down side if little repaly value and every once in a while characters seem to drone on and on about nothing of importance it is this that stops the game from being perfect. if you want an origanal game with interesting characters and well writen diolauge and don't get bored of everyrthing in a few minutes then this is your game.

This game could not have been better for what it is. They nailed the design right on the head! You really feel like your in some murder mystery show (like Matlock or Monk!) you play Phoenix Wright an attorney who's new to the buisness. As you progress you find clues and cross examine witnesses at what not. I know that might not sound exciting, but you can really get in to the story. I gave this a 9 out of 10 because I wish there weren't so many low cut woman in the game. I would recommend it to my little cousins if it didn't have those 2 indecent ladys in the beginning of the game. Besides that it was a great game!

Though this game tends to butcher the practices of the American Justice System, it still is a pretty good game that requires attention to detail. It will provide tons of hours of play and really build on problem solving skills. But if you are an action gamer this game might bore you. Its pretty much nothing but reading. You don't control your character. You don't get into fights or anything like that. It's all finding evidence and using that evidence to prove people inocent.
