9 gavels out of 10!

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.

Another Gem From Capcom

Phoenix Wright puts you on the shoes of a defense attorney. In each case you must proved the innocence of your client and find the culprit too.

There are 5 cases in this game, in each one a murder is committed. You must then go around talk to people and collect evidence. When the time of the trial arrives you must cross-exam each witness and find contradictions in their testimony by showing evidence. This will eventually lead to the truth and the innocence of your client.

In this game you read a lot and trust me when I say that there is a lot to read. But, by the second case you get used it. I love this game because it seems that somebody actually put some thought into it. Every case is interesting and has a twist. The characters in the game really start to on grow you eventually something rare in video games. Anyhow, if you can get past the the heavy reading that's require you are guaranteed to have a great time in this game.
