  • Personally i feel it is one of the best DS games because of its uniqueness and the fact that it has such a deep story
  • Although i would not recommend this to anyone who does not like a lot of reading, but i would recommend it if you are into anime or a good story full of cliffhangers

      Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney is an visual novel game released by Capcom on the Nintendo DS. The game is a direct port of the original game on the Gameboy Advance.

      Ace Attorney is a heavily text-driven game, and doesn’t require to do anything such as using your rocket launcher or driving a car while running over innocent civilians. This does not make the game dull but instead its a nice change from what you usually expect in a game. Although the game having Gameboy Advance graphics it still is bright, colorful and very nice to look at it visually. It also has a very deep story which will keep you interested and having you itching to know more.

      Ace Attorney is centered around Phoenix Wright (nice name) who has just become a lawyer.


      At first he seems nervous and very unreliable when it came to solving cases but as you go further into the game Wright is generally easy-going, which usually leads to his friends leading him around. This being said he can grow on the gamer as he has a strong grasp to finding out who the killer is. There are also numerous other characters which you come across and they all have a unique and a somewhat humorous personality.

      There are two sides of the gameplay of Ace Attorney, one side involves being in the courtroom while the other has you investigating the surrounding of the case.

      In the Courtroom you will have to read a witnesses statement and present any evidence which contradicts what the witness says. This can be fun to do ...


      • but at the same time extremely challenging at times, which can give you a slight relief and being happy with yourself when you get it right. If you present the wrong evidence 5 times throughout the courtroom, you will receive a guilty verdict and you will have to start over to your last save. At the same time you can save at any moment of the game so it takes out some of the challenge.

        The investigation has you talking to people involved with the case by doing this you may obtain an item which can be important to the case.

        Visually Ace Attorney is extremely nice to look at and has some adorable characters. The games visual is on the top screen while all the evidence presenting and questioning is done on

        the bottom screen. The also has some animation at the beginning of each case which is a nice touch to the game.

        Ace Attorney makes good use of the DS features, obviously the touch screen but you also have the option of shouting into your mic “OBJECTION” when your presenting your evidence.

        Although there really isn’t any replay value for Ace Attorney it still gives you a good 10-15 hours of solid courtroom action and gives the adventure genre something new. Personally i feel it is one of the best DS games because of its uniqueness and the fact that it has such a deep story. Although i would not recommend this to anyone who does not like a lot of reading, but i would recommend it if you are into anime or a good story full of cliffhangers.
