Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney Trials and Tribulations (DS)

 

Trials and Tribulations is yet another enjoyable Phoenix Wright game--just don't expect anything new.

The dashing defense returns for thirds.

"In a way, Phoenix Wright: Trials and Tribulations is a game that is less than the sum of its parts"

Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney: Trials and Tribulations

 

There's a reason Phoenix Wright's first DS outing garnered such a fanatic following in the US that the game had to enter production a second (and third) time. The gameplay was something no one in this generation of gamers had really experienced, the...

Trials and Tribulations is a great ending to the trilogy. The gameplay is no different and may have gotten easier, but it's easily the best plot yet in a Phoenix Game. The final case is the best case yet in the series.

"The name's Wright. Phoenix Wright...Ace Attorney."

Stronger emphasis on courtroom versus investigation ; Satisfying closure for the Phoenix Wright series ; Awesome music ; Text and art style remains energetic and funny

The action needed to advance the plot is sometimes unclear ; A few grammatical mistakes and typos still slipped by ; Simple, recycled graphics ; Save often to avoid repeating dialog if you lose the trial

Yes, I do not consider the aboot thing to be a typo. I think I saw "no" instead of "on," one other whoopsie, and the occasional "they" referring to a single person. Looking at Karlie's imps, which complain about the many errors, I suspect Capcom...

The Game: Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney changed my gaming life forever. Prior to its release, I had snubbed the Nintendo DS. Thoroughly disinterested with games like Nintendogs, which I saw as a gimmick (I later changed my tune), I used the release of...

The Conclusion: Back on your DS for a third time, Phoenix Wright does what he does best. And for better or worse, he does it exactly the same way he did it the last two times. There's no new gameplay elements, no new character animations, no new...

Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney: Trials and Tribulations Nintendo DS Review

 

Great new characters, particularly Godot and Mia Fey; superb presentation, especially the music; great examination tools

Still the same old gameplay mechanics from the first two games; logic sometimes goes out the window

Objection!" Your Honor, lawyer video games are NOT supposed to be fun. That's all we need, a lame ass Law and Order simulation that makes us wish we were dead or, at the very least, playing something along the lines of CSI instead. (Yes, I just said...

Our spiky-haired hero's final contribution to the ongoing Ace Attorney series is his best yet.

Storyline adds new twists and turns and closes out the Phoenix Wright saga nicely

Not very accessible if you haven't at least played the first game; no new mechanics

Expert review by:

Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney - Trials & Tribulations

 

Who would've thought a quirky lawyer sim would win over so many gamers back in 2005. The gameplay was nothing special, but there was a ton of charm to the characters, and we were hooked. Fans waited until January 2007 to play the beloved, spiky-haired...

The final verdict? It ranks as my favorite installment in the trilogy. The gameplay brought nothing new to the table, but playing it for the plot and characters has left me more than satisfied. I enjoyed all the cases and new characters, and the music...

It is with a certain degree of sadness that I write this review. Not because the game is rubbish, as nothing could be further from the truth. In fact, Trials and Tribulations is the best iteration in the Ace Attorney series to date. No, it's because...

Hilarious, well-written dialogue; longer cases with in-depth storylines; more logical puzzles than previous games; lovable cast of old and new characters

Translation errors; makes no special use of DS capabilities; occasionally hard to know when to present evidence; doesn't offer anything new over previous games

A climactic end to the Phoenix Wright story, Trials and Tribulations is the high point of the series, wrapping together great storylines, dialogue and characters into one portable package. Buy it now before I make use of Franziska's whip.
