Phoenix Wright Ace Attorney thread

Well has anyone else played this great point and click series for DS? I recently got the IPad HD Trilogy that came out on the app store and since the game plays a bit like a point and click game I was wondering if anyone else have played the great series. So far I've only gotten to case 5 on the first Phoenix Wright but if i had to pick a favourite for the first game it would ether be Turnabout Sisters or Turnabout Goodbyes. Anyway so what is everyone's thoughts on the series?

  • Just got back into the series with the second game(already played the first) question. Is it me or is the logic in the second game a bit bull? Like yeah the first one had you interrogate the parrot, but that at least wound up making some sense later on in a story sense, but gameplay wise I normally didn't have to deal with it, here however multiple times I noticed clear contradictions but got penalized for pointing them out for no reason aside from "The devs didn't want me to" or "that's technically right but there's another way to show that so you are wrong and get penalized", and it really is throwing me off on enjoying this game.

  • The one thing you need to keep in mind with the Phoenix Wright series is that, while you are playing the game, you are not involved in the game at all. You can figure out what's going on steps in advance, but Phoenix needs to figure this out for himself.

  • I found with the second game, I would figure out the contradiction that the game would want, but then have no idea how to put it across. (I.e. the specific piece of testimony to object to, or the exact piece of evidence to use.).

    But I think the second game is still my favourite of the lot. That last case is awesome.

  • I'd perfected the art of saving before presenting any evidence.

    The third game didn't have thus issue as much from what I recall. But I really can't remember much about it other than coffee to the face.

    That's a good thing, I barley remember it happening in AA1 as well. I'll probably get to AA3 eventually, $10 on wiiware definitely is a good deal.

  • I have seen part of the movie,and I got a new desktop wallpaper too. :D

  • I watched the movie. It's awesome.

    I'm also really glad that PLvsPW is being localized because it'll be nice to have Maya as a companion again

  • I want to watch the movie but I'm personally hoping its dubbed into English using the voice actors from Duel Destinies.

  • The way I see it, seeing as none of the games had voice acting reading the sub's just makes it more like them!
