Replaying the whole main series. The anime skips over so much and just makes me think of how much better the games are.

That's right, Papissama, I'm screwing up your lists by adjusting the Phoenix Wright trilogy to their original GBA release dates. It's high time this change was made.

Pape Badiane It pains me to say it but I agree.

Ace Attorney is still one of the best games of all time. Very few games make people feel the drama in the same way as Ace Attorney. The eclectic soundtrack, unique character designs and the gripping dialogue coincide to make this a true classic. No other scene investigation game immerses people into the world in the same way as Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney.

Score: 9.5 (Fantastic!)

I held back for a while, but then i couldn't resist, i HAD to play this series, starting with Phoenix wright: Ace attorney. The story of this game is incredible, and the characters are very memorable, including Miles Edgeworth, Dick gumshoe and of course, Maya Fay. The only problem i have with this game is that the investigations can get tedious and boring, especially later on. The court segments have some of the most intense moments in any game i have ever played. Although not really a problem, the court segments follow a similar pattern, but that doesn't stop them from being shocking, with plot-twists showing up every now and then. The court segments can also be a bit easy, but that adds to the narrative.

Score: 8.5 (Great!)

This is one of those games that mercilessly sucks the NDS battery dry – it's so surprisingly compelling that, even at 3.oo a.m., you still don't wanna stop. Featuring various interesting characters – funny, not too serious, and flamboyant – "PW:AA" is a crime drama visual novel (series) that is unrivaled. Granted, there aren't many other "lawyer games" in existance … but, err … that's how innovative it is!

The gameplay, apart from being dialog-heavy, is divided into a point-&-click investigation and a courtroom interrogation where you search for the witnesses' & suspects' contradictions. The character sprites & animations are the driving force of the graphics and as such, they don't disappoint. The backgrounds however are a bit too simplistic for my taste, but not enough to lessen the overall experience. The music succeeds in making mere conversations thrilling (!), but "dying" can become tedious due to sparse checkpoints and no way to skip text you've read already.

Score: 9.0 (Fantastic!)

It's saddening that law isn't this fun in real life. The final episode weaves a mind-blowing tale, and in the meantime, it's rewarding to uncover witnesses' lies and deceptions (dramatic screaming into the microphone and emphatic finger pointing optional). I'm choosing to let this one represent the whole trilogy on my All-Time Favorites list, even though I love all three.

Score: 10.0 (Classic!)

I'm really glad that I got into the Ace Attorney series. Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney features a wide cast of unique and likable characters, deep and thought out criminal cases and great animations. Capcom focused on great story elements and simple playability instead of gimmicky touchscreen/microphone controls. The soundtrack is outstanding and emphasizes the thrilling atmosphere in court battles greatly. The same can be said for any other Ace Attorney game as they are all of high-quality. There are some spelling mistakes in the German version of this game but that's forgivable as the dialogs are still great and often funny.

Score: 8.5 (Great!)

It's a game about lawyers! And it's an adventure! It couldn't be worse, could it? Well, surprisingly this game is awesome. Even if you can't control the story (it's most like a book than a game) this is surely one of the best experiences I ever had on my DS. The characters are so lovely and charismatic, the plot is so twisted, funny and crazy, well, everything fits perfectly. It was 20 hours, 20 good hours that I spent with this title. I hope I'll see Mr. Wright, Mr. Edgeworth, the Fey sisters, Dectetive Gunshoe and the Skye sisters again, I need to scream 'OBJECTION!' again... I'm wondering if the second game is as good as this.

Score: 8.0 (Great!)

It was the beginning of a legend that would capture the hearts of whoever would give it a try. Unconventional for its time, the original Ace Attorney is an absolute classic that sketched the best storyline in the industry. Phoenix, Maya, Mia, Edgeworth, Gumshoe, Lotta, Ema Skye, and the Judge were all introduced and would soon tell their own stories in the sequels to come. It's the only game I've played where the aftethought gameplay is actually forgiven for the excellently-paced story and outstanding soundtrack. The final case is one of the longest and most climactic in the series, and the explosions of the original would create ripples in later games. It's hard to say much about Ace Attorney, other than it's a joy to play through.

Score: 9.0 (Fantastic!)
