Name: Ace Attorney Apollo Justice (Nintendo DS)Format: Nintendo DS
The last game in the Ace Attorney
series, Apollo Justice introduces an entirely new cast. Cameos from existing characters tie the games together, but the focus is very much on Apollo as he tries to find his feet in the court system and win his first cases.
The prosecutor, a rock star called Klavier Gavin, is an unlikely someime-ally along with Trucy, an apprentice magician who proves to be tied closely with one of his cases. Apollo has his own ability to fall back on however: an uncanny knack of telling when people are lying.
Set years after the Ace Attorney games, Apollo Justice gives a new twist on the old format – even if in some cases it asks more questions than it answers. Definitely worth playing for any fans of the Ace Attorney games. Amazon.co.uk Widgets
Name: Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney (Nintendo DS)Format: Nintendo DS
With the recent release of Miles Edgeworth Investigations
, It seems like a good time to take a look back at the game that started the series. Phoenix Wright Ace Attorney was originally released for the GBA, but with an added chapter and updated graphics and sound, it became an early hit on the DS.
Phoenix “Nick” Wright is a trainee defense attorney, who we join at the start of his first case. Under the tutelage of Mia Fey, he has to defend a series of murder cases against Miles Edgeworth a prosecutor with a perfect record and an old rival of Phoenix. Through the course of the game we watch Phoenix develop from a rookie into an experienced attorney with his own assistant, who has to unravel past cases to resolve the mystery behind his mentor – and his opponent.
Gameplay-wise, this is the game that resulted in the classic cry of “Objection!” from a generation of gamers. Amazon.co.uk Widgets
