Apollo Justice: Ace Attorney

I've been through the previous Ace Attorney games (even played the Harvey Birdman: Attorney at Law game), and this one is my favorite so far. For the uninitiated, this series is basically an extremely streamlined version of those old mouse click-based adventure games, focused on legal cases of the protagonist attorney character.

While the previous entries in the series had Phoenix Wright as the title character, this fourth release has a new lawyer, Apollo Justice. Of course we'll see plenty of Phoenix is this episode, although in a very different role!

Maybe I'm just getting used to the crazy universe of the game, but the stories in this game started to make sense in their own idiosyncratic way. I only had to look up one thing on Gamefaqs - I did not manage to catch a tic of a character during the cross examination process. I swear, the last case even felt like a fantastic page-turner thriller.
Of course you still have the colorful, crazy characters, bad jokes, and funny references throughout the game. 

For newcomers to the series, probably I'd recommend this entry as a starting point, just because the cases make more sense this time.

    Phoenix Wright's spin off series is just as good 0

    Apollo Justice is a spin off of the Phoenix Wright series.  Apollo Justice is a new character and the game is built with the DS in mind (unlike the previous games which were originally built for the GBA).  It takes the phoenix wright gameplay and gives new gameplay to it giving it a breath of fresh air yet still retaining to the core gameplay.  And like other games in the series the story is very engrossing. Apollo Justice is a new lawyer who works under Phoenix's friend Kristoph Gavin and has ...
