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.

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.
