General Rambling: Ace Attorney...

Posted by Jedi Master J. , in Video Games Mar 18 2014 · 95 views

Hey, folks. I thought I pop in today to mention that I beat Trials and Tribulations in Ace Attorney series yesterday!
 
I think played it for like eight hours yesterday and I ended up being so engrossed with it that I stay up to two in the morning to beat it. XD So yeah, I was really hook on this game and I am already itching to play Apollo Justice (Which I am probably going start as soon as I done writing this entry.).
 
And of course, now I don't know what else to say here, especially considering I just load the title screen of Apollo Justice on my 3DS right now. XD
 
Well, I guess I can give you my general opinions of this series.  Although I guess it is given that I greatly enjoy and have a lot of fun playing these games, I mean I do kind of blow up on Twitter whenever I am playing one of them (I try avoid posting spoilers on the games there, so its mostly just me sharing a quote from the game that I thought was funny and some occasionally thoughts on a case here and there). XD
 
Hm...If I had rank the games that I played so far, I think I would rank them as follows:
 
- Trials and Tribulations: Okay, this is probably not surprising really as I have played this one more recently. But well, I enjoyed a lot cases in this one, especially the final one (Which might just be my favorite of the entire series so far.).
 
It also has cases where you play as Mia Fey (Who I honestly would love see get her own Ace Attorney series.). And of course, Prosecutor Godot is in this and I rather like him (Although I wouldn't go so far as to claim he is my favorite Prosecutor as that spot still kind of taken by Edgeworth as well, I played three games where he has appeared and I have seen him grow into one of best Prosecutor in the game series [I say this because his interest has always been on getting justice. Not just beating Phoenix as some Prosecutors seem so dead set on.]).
 
It also did a great job of tying the three games together, which I rather liked. Although I am annoyed that the seen to have forgotten that a certain prosecutor was planning to return a certain piece of evidence to Phoenix the next time they met (REF: This loose thread is from the ending of the second game.). But well, that's just a tiny detail really, so it doesn't hurt me liking this game. Oh, and the music is pretty great! 
 
- Justice For All: Again, this might be a case of I played this more recently than the first game really. Still though, I feel like it improved the game with the cool new feature, "Psyche-Lock". Miss von Karma also a pretty cool prosecutor. Oh, and my favorite case in this one was the last one.
 
Hm...If I had to say anything negative about this game, its that it only four cases rather than five cases.
 
- Ace Attorney: Eh...There is not much to say here (I say this because it has been a few months since I played this one.), beside that while I do like original game, I feel like its sequels did a good job improving on the format set up here. That and well, Edgeworth plays a big part in this game and he is well, my favorite prosecutor. Oh, cases 4 & 5 were my favorites in this one.
 
Alright, I think I ramble enough here about the Ace Attorney series. Apologizes if this was boring for you folks. I hope you all have a great day today and thank you for taking the time to read this. Talk to you later, BZPers. *clicks start on 3DS*

Trials and Tribulations FTW!

 

Some really great characters and some seriously strong feels were had in that game...

I finished Trials and Tribulations just a couple months ago, and I have to agree that it's my favorite so far (mostly due to that amazing final case). So many twists I never saw coming. And that moment when the classic Pursuit/Cornered music kicks in? Oh man. Chills.

 

I actually played Apollo Justice before any of the original games, and it's probably still my second favorite behind Trials and Tribulations. From what I've read, it seems like a lot of people don't like it very much, but I'm not sure why. The characters, cases, and music are all pretty amazing, plus the new gameplay mechanics are fun and clever too.

 

Now I really need to get back to playing Dual Destinies, I'm only partway through the second case on that one.

I think part of the reason why Apollo Justice is not quite as well-liked as the other games is that it feels a little bit less connected to the series as a whole than the other games. It didn't include Edgeworth, or anyone from the Fey clan. Phoenix wasn't even the main character.

Spoiler


And let's not forget that expectations were incredibly high after Trials and Tribulations, which is widely regarded as the most triumphant game in the series. Apollo Justice: Ace Attorney is also one of the shorter games, with only four cases. It's easy to see why it was controversial when it was first released, and why some of that uneasiness lingers in the eyes of the collective fanbase.
