Phoenix Wright

Arkham Origins, Swap Force, Phoenix Wright and Gravity

For review, I've been playing two games at once… Not my favorite thing to do, but it is that time of the year and they aren't at all alike, so playing one is kind of like taking a break from the other. The first is Batman: Arkham Origins, as mentioned in the last post. I'm finding this is a very interesting title on many levels, but not necessarily for the reasons that you might expect.

Phoenix Wright Is Fucking Awesome

As anyone who has the misfortune of following me on Twitter will know, I've been engrossing myself in Phoenix Wright for the past few days, and the game has pretty much been riding solo in my newly acquired DS. I'm just about at the end of episode 5, so not totally done yet. However, unless the game suddenly turns into Mega Man X7 within this last case, I can safely say that Phoenix Wright will rocket straight to the top of my "late to the party" list. And as a bonus, I have the correct spelling of "Phoenix" memorized after years of always relying on spellckeck.

Apollo Justice: Ace Attorney impressions

Out of all four Ace Attorney games, this one was by far the weakest. It didn't start getting interesting at all until former main character Phoenix Wright came back for a while in the fourth (and final) case, and that one was a confusing mess of quasi sci-fi with a lot of nonsense evidence-gathering in two different time periods, one in the present and one in the past.

Phoenix Wright: Justice For All

Game Description: Phoenix Wright: Justice For All is the new game in the popular court room battle series from Japan. Phoenix Wright is a defense attorney who proves his clients' innocence against the toughest of odds -- and the most ruthless of adversaries. Exercise your legal prowess as you collect evidence, examine witnesses, analyse testimonies and seek the truth to ensure that justice prevails. The game is characterised by its memorable characters, engaging storylines and unique gameplay format, all presented in a comical anime style.

Phoenix Wright: Justice For All – Review

Read review of Phoenix Wright: Justice For AllOftentimes, a series can be phenomenal to start, but if the first installment is successful, creators will bleed it dry. My concern when approaching the latest title in the series, Phoenix Wright 2: Justice For All, was its the ability to flesh out characters, story and overall quality. Thankfully, Phoenix Wright: Justice For All manages to do everything right, and for all the right reasons.

Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney – Second Opinion

I'm going to let you in on a little secret. Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney isn't a game. It's a book. When you think about it for a second, it makes sense. A fictional mystery book has, by definition, a protagonist investigating a crime committed by one of several prime suspects.

Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney – Review

When I first saw pictures of Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney making the rounds as an example of "OMG, look at this freakish Japanese weirdness", I was captivated and depressed at the same time. Captivated because the thought of taking on the role of a defense lawyer in a videogame struck me as extremely interesting and unique. Depressed, because I thought Hell would freeze over before this game would ever be released in North America.
