The Ace Attorney Series:

Platypus!
So, I realize we didn't have a all-purpose thread for slinging objections every which way and arguing if "Turnabout Big Top" makes sense, so here's the magnificent all-purpose Ace Attorney thread.

Me I'm currently working my way through Apollo Justice and I haven't quite decided what I think about it yet.

...

TAKE THAT!
A-HYUK!
I love Apollo Justice. He's just so adorkable. waii

When is Perfect Prosecutor due for release?
Sorry, I can't hear you from my FLYING METAL BOX!
A-HYUK!
February, I believe.

The European release date is February 19th if Play.com is to be believed. As for Apollo Justice, well, once I got over the name, he's a pretty cool guy  *. Also, it's nice to get a magical MacGuffin-based lie detector that actually works in court. I as of yet haven't found anyone as face-meltingly awesome as Manfred Von Karma or Godot in AJ yet, but that could either be my fanboyness shining through or the fact that I'm only about half-finished with the game yet.
A-HYUK!
I love Klavier Gavin. A prosecuter who isn't a complete dick? Who air-guitars in court? Sign me up!

Klavier Gavin is awesome, though he lacked the animosity I liked in Edgeworth and the Karmas. Can't say I liked the Gotcha!-gimmic, but Apollo Justice is still my favourite game in the series (though I haven't finished Trials and Tribulations yet...).

Just bought Justice For All. I have lots of trouble finding Ace Attorney games... So far, I have detected Trials and Tribulations and Apollo Justice, and Edgey is right around the corner!

@Raw Power—if you've got a Wii, they're releasing all three of the first games on WiiWare. Ace Attorney is already out, and I've been playing it again that way. I can't wait till Trials and Tribulations comes out, because my copy of the DS game disappeared before I could finish it. And I wouldn't feel right playing Apollo Justice without having beaten Trials and Tribulations! T_T

I like Klavier, it seemed like the game was more about him that it was about Apollo. However he suffered from the Tough Act to Follow that was Godot.

A-HYUK!
You gotta feel sorry for the guy by the end of the game, though. Betrayed by his band mate, his brother's a psychopathic murderer...all within a few weeks of each other, too.

That's why the game seems to be more about him than Apollo, the latter is there for his job, Klavier is there to uphold justice, no matter how much it costs him.

That's one thing I liked about AJ. It inverted the notion that Prosecutors are borderline Always Chaotic Evil the original games seemed to imply.

It was a good idea, but it also removed a lot of the conflict and tension from the game, making it a bit less interesting.

OH MY GOD I HAVE JUST FINISHED JUSTICE FOR ALL IT WAS AWESOME I CRIED SO MUCH HOLY SHIT WAS IT THRILLING AND SO FUNNY AND OLDBACG WAS SUCH NIGHTAMRE FUEL AND ADRIAN WAS SO DESPERATELY MOE MOE AND PHOENIX WAS SO WELL-ROUNDED AND I AM IN LOVE WITH THIS GAME AND-

Select. Present. TAKE THAT!

  • Franzie braces herself in horror: WHAT?

  • Indeed! (*DESK SLAM*) This proves my client's innocence! What do you say, your Honour?

  • SMASHES THE MALLET ON THE ANVIL: "This court sees no reason to further prolong the trial. Nor is there any need for more time to decide the case in the favour of the defendant. This court finds the defendant, [Phoenix Wright Ace Attorney Justice for All]...NOT Guilty. The accused will NOT surrender to the court immediately, NOT to be held pending trial at a higher court within a month from today's date. That is all. The court is NOT adjourned!" (COURTROOM DOORS CLOSE)

Yeah, the games do that to ya. I personally think T&T narrowly beats JFA tear jerker & CMOH-wise, but it's close. Amazing how involving the story gets once Maya's life is on the line.
A-HYUK!
Again.

Wait until you see Godot.

Yeah, not having Maya in danger reduces the tension immensely...

Seconding that T&T was better that JFA. The final case was so goddamn awesome I swear my DS was going to explode from Phoenix and Spirit!Mia's Super Objection.

Also T&T connects ALL the major plot points and ALL the back stories of the major characters into one huge web of a Xanatos Roulette.

In general, the entire end of T&T had me mesmerized. Super-objection, Godot finally using Phoenix' full name and the two drinking coffee together... granted, making Manfred Von Karma bang his head against the courtroom walls in defeat was sweet as hell, but I can't quite decide if I like 1-4 or 3-5 better.
A-HYUK!
I'd personally go with 3-5. Playing as Edgeworth was one of the best experiences of my gaming career. :D

Playing as him is cool yes, but, in my opinion, he was at his best during 1-2 and 1-3, and becomes slightly less cool afterwards.

A-HYUK!
Personally, I'm of the opposite opinion.

The best Edgeworth-moment in my book was in 1-3 where he raised objections against his own witness to uncover the truth behind it all. Granted, I saw the contradiction myself, the game-play offered me no chance to prove it.
