Rated 10 out of 10 by Colbyblogger Phoenix Wright has a new fanboy.
First off, I love this game... so much. This game revolves around rookie lawyer Mr. Phoenix Wright as he solve cases in court. When I originally saw this, (as I bet many people did)) I thought "How could this be fun?". With an amazing story, humor, mystery, eye pleasing graphics, kooky/ B.A. characters, and a dramatic music score, how could it not be? Along with this game, I recommend all the sequels, as well. Capcom pulled off a real winner here. Not only is this a game for the intelligent mind, it still has a sense of heart and fun. This game is definitely on my Top 10 List of DS games. If you haven't tried this already, I highly suggest you pick it up at your local video game provider, preferably Gamestop. ;) If you liked this game I recommend:Phoenix Wright:Trials And Tribulations Phoenix Wright: Justice For All Apollo Justice: Ace Attorney Elite Beat Agents Advance Wars: Days of Ruin

If you compare my DS game collection to other people, there's would probably be twice as large as mine. But once my cousin introduced the Ace Attorney series to me, I was hooked. I IMMEDIATELY purchased the first three Phoenix Wright games and the one Apollo Justice game. The series is just fantastic, compelling characters and story. Challenging, easy controls, amazing soundtrack, long game to keep you busy for a week. And a lot of reply value. The game is split into episodes where you take the role of Phoenix Wirght, a rookie lawyer. The game is a port from the gba version only released in Japan while there is a bonus 5th episode that take advantage of the ds's capabilities and offers much more fun. If you enjoy mystery or a good story and good gameplay. DEFINITELY purchase the ENTIRE series immediately. You will enjoy yourself.

I was a little nervous about whether I would like this game or not when I received it as an early Christmas present. It turned out that it brought me endless hours of fun. This game is amazing. You are this attorney who just got out of law school and already you're in your first case investigating. You need to find evidence to convince the jury in your favor, and a lot of times that can be very challenging. My only complaint is that there is a little too much dialogue and not enough action. But don't get me wrong, this game rocks. Oh and one more thing, sometimes the prosecutors tick you off so much that you'll want to punch them. But don't worry, once you win your cases, its nice to rub that in their faces. That's basically all I can say without spoiling the story, or stories as some might say. Just buy the game to experience its true awesomeness.

Capcom literally hit a home run with this game! I saw and I straight away saw it was Capcom I bought it on the spot, and now it's one of the best in the DS family as a whole in between Fire Emblem Awakening and Rhythm Heaven!

Hold It! Don't spend your money on Call of Duty! Buy one of the greatest games of all time instead! Phoenix Wright Ace Attorney is a point and click-esque game that sorta plays out like an interactive graphic novel. The game involves you searching for evidence then finding ways to use it in the court. The trials are where the game shines because not only do you have to use your brain, but you also get the satisfaction of watching the criminal freaking out! The music in this game is amazing and I found myself humming these toons to myself all the time. I could not recommend this game more.
Rated 9 out of 10 by crippla87 Start of a great franchise
This game brings back so many fond memories when I bought and played it years ago for only $20 brand new. I am not surprised to see its managed to hold its value since. The Ace Attorney series plays like a text adventure game, but the characters and humor make it a blast to play through. The music is also very well composed and set the tone perfectly. If your thinking of buying a used game for the DS, this is one of the best games to pick up. The game is very unique and worth every penny. If you can find this gem used, be sure to pick it up, you won't regret it.
Rated 9 out of 10 by OcarinaOfAwesome A truly good game
This game pushes your mind to the limit as you try to solve murder cases using just a few clues. In this great game, you play as a lawyer who goes above and beyond to prove of his clients' innocence. With five unique cases, dozens of intriguing characters, and non-stop humor, as well as some drama, this game really is the whole package. The only downfall is that there is some foul language, though not enough to take away from the game. I would recommend this game to anyone who is looking for a fun game that makes them use their head.

This is the best game ever! Okay, maybe not. If you like a good mystery, like a murder mystery, or just like solving puzzles, BUY NOW! It's super awesome! If you don't like puzzles or thinking, you probably won't like this much. I have the whole series. I went on a hunt for these games, and it was worth it!
