Second Generation!!!Okay i have to admit, this is a great game. I mean just the best overall (no comparison to the first games!), but i just have 1 problem. What happened to Iris+ Phoenix !?! Not to mention Gumshoe and Maggey! Plus i could only play the second and third games so i only know trucy by the wiki... NEI (not enough info!!!) but if i had just played this game out of the series then i would have no problems at all. LONG LIVE PHOENIX!!!

Justice is servedThis is different from the phoenix wright in many ways. First is that this game takes place seven years after an event. phoenix is a main character but not the teacher to Apollo. The story is great, though I was a little disappointed by some of the characters. My main Question was WHAT THE HECK THEY DO WITH PHEONIX'S GIRL FRIEND, MAYA, AND PEARLS? The new "trilogy?" is excellent mix of old and new. The new cutscenes are excellent. I still like the original better then this one, but this one is extremely good. The 3D evidence and map are neat features. The style of the series is still there. The climax of this game is one of the best in gaming (Living up to the Wright tradition). You can just buy this game, and enjoy it without playing the others. But you get more out of the game by beating the Phoenix Wright Games. The PW games are all $20 or less so 3 games for 2 is great. So in all Apollo Justice has nearly all the comedy, style, and story of the phoenix wright games.

Phoenix Wright is outdone? Impossible! Possible.Before you start reading my review, I would like to say one thing. If you are interested in this game, you should really play the Phoenix Wright trilogy first before you play this. There are a lot of references in the game of those games. First off, I'll start with the storyline. I won't spoil anything. It's about a defense attorney who gets 4 cases and tries to get a "Not Guilty" verdict in all of them. As usual, the story is top notch and the characters are outstanding. The cases are about as wild as you can get for all 4 of them. Now, I'll move on to the music. Anyone who's played the last 3 games knows that the music in this series is amazing. Apollo Justice continues this trend. Some new great courtroom themes were added, including a great theme for the new prosecutor/rock star, Klavier Gavin. Now, I'll go to the gameplay. The gameplay isn't really much, clicking and clicking and choosing where to go and presenting is the usual. However, they've added some new or pretty new stuff, like examining evidence. One of the new great things added is the Percieve system, where you look for a nervous twitch or habit while someone is testifying. They removed the Psyche-Locks, a great thing from the Phoenix Wright trilogy, however they added some great fingerprinting and footprint analysis for fun. This was seen in the 5th case of the first game. Some of the old and awesome characters are gone, but you will see some cameos and hear some references. Don't worry, old Phoenix fans, this game should please you very much!
