Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney uses a comical, anime-style approach to legal battles to keep things amusing, which actually complements some of the more serious moments dealing with the crimes. One minute, a girl you know is innocent will be accused of killing her own sister and tossed in jail; the next minute, you'll be almost-unintentionally outsmarting a bumbling detective.
Even the moment of truth in court can be humorous, in no small part due to Phoenix's expressions and insecurities. How many other games could get away with having a lawyer as the main hero, always ready to shout "Objection!" at a moment's notice? Ace is another perfect example of the DS bringing something totally new to the table.
