Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney Trials & Tribulations review

One final fling for Wright


  • Ties up Phoenix Wright saga
  • Story is amazing
  • Animation is still ace


  • Past issues haven't been fixed
  • Nothing new here
  • Storyline is over

Oct 22, 2007

Phoenix Wright, you stand before us today accused of gross negligence in light of past criticisms. Twice have you stood before this court and twice have you ignored us.

Your twists and turns dash rationality to pieces like a logic piñata and yet, for all your snakelike judicial journeys, you are just as guilty of showing your hand too early, forcing us to take ludicrous routes to an answer we spotted from minute one. You punish perceptive players - surely those most likely to invest in a text adventure - with nonsensical hoop jumping. What wouldn’t we do for a stenographer to tidy up your courtroom mess?
