Ace Attorney Allies all rise! Court is now in session!

  • Is it wrong that I have the PW Trilogy, 4, and PW vs Layton all on my 3DS, but have yet to play them?

  • @DMCMaster It's alright, as long as you play them when you have time.

    I have fond memories of Phoenix Wright, when I was in business college, my friend and I played the first game together on breaks. And we had a blast. I have original PW trilogy + Apollo Justice, and I love those games. I don't have 3DS, just my old DSi, but I'll get to them whenever I have time and money to do so.

  • Well to be honest I've only been playing my 3DS when I get some free time ate work, usually during my late shifts where I'm locked in from 11pm to 5am, although I usually only get 10-15 minutes if I'm lucky

  • I've been playing Ace Attorney for a long time now, weird as this is to say, it's one of my favorite franchises in gaming. Its weird because 1) it never comes up on "greatest games" lists, and 2) I traditionally much prefer games with tight gameplay as opposed to a good story. But the games have such good writing, and the courtroom puzzles are just so fun that I get so engaged in the experience. The original trilogy was the peak, and I do feel like every game after has been really inferior (I haven't played either of the unlocalised games), but I still look forward to them immensely - even a bad AA game is still an AA game. SoJ is up there with TLG and South Park for my most anticipated games still coming out.

    Also, the best game is the original imo (every case was strong, including the DS bonus one), but the best trial was by far, hands down, no contest the last trial of the second game. If you've played it, you know why. If not....just play the games, what are you waiting for!

  • I still haven't played anything Ace Attorney, which is odd since it seems right down my alley. What is the easiest way to get a hold of each game nowadays?

  • @Carmichael On the 3DS eShop, you can find Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney Trilogy (the first 3 games), as well as the two latest games, Dual Destinies and Spirit of Justice.

    As far as I know you can only get the others as physical DS games, which could be hard to find nowadays depending on which part of the world you live in.

    But if you want to get into the series, then I highly recommend you pick up the original trilogy, they're widely regarded as the best, and you'll get a good grasp on the story.
