Some of the cases are dull, but you will quickly forget about that by listening to the music, looking at the art, and getting thrilled and attached to the absolutely charismatic cast of characters

Abysmal pacing, the fourth case is fucking wretched, and I do not love the cast of this game outside of Sholmes. Shu Takumi having the fucking balls to make a game that is just a setup game is so stupid. If the game was more like Case 3 and 5 I'd like it a lot more, but jesus those other three cases just aren't there.

I like the game, but it's brought down with it's slow pacing and sequel bait ending. If I didn't play the sequel right after, I probably would have rated it lower

A charming visual novel-puzzle game with surprisingly deep writing that unfortunately suffers from the worse illness of them all; anime pacing.

Imagine you drink a glass of water, right now, how would you write this action? Well, you could say “I went to the kitchen, grab a glass of water and then drank it”. And that’s it. Ace Attorney Adventures on the other hand, would take TEN FUCKIN MINUTES TO DO THE SAME.

— “Damn I’m a bit thirsty I guess… Probably could go to the kitchen… Yeah, that would seem to be the correct path to follow.”

— “Although… I come from Japan, so… I’m not sure these english gentlemen keep their water on the same place within their homes as us… I guess I should investigate this matter more thoroughly.”

— (ANOTHER PERSON ENTERS THE SCENE) “You could do it man! You need this water to survive! It’s your chance now to grab it! Seize the opportunity!”

(DRAMATIC PAUSE WHERE YOU CAN SEE EVERY CHARACTER REACTING TO WHETHER YOU’RE GONNA GRAB THE GLASS OF WATER OR NOT)

— “This is it! I can already taste the water… I’m almost there… C’mon! I can do this!”

— (ANOTHER CHARACTER APPEARS IN THE SCREEN TO EXPLAIN WHY WATER IS IMPORTANT TO THE HUMAN BODY… THIS TAKES FOUR MINUTES)



Not only is this time consuming, it is excruciatingly painful. You feel mocked for liking the good bits of this fucking game. Add investigations phases that are almost entirely consistent in pixel hunting (with occasionally funny dialogue) and this game HURTS YOU.

This could’ve been a really great 8-10 hours neat little adventure masterpiece, full of quirky characters and fun trial based puzzles that haven’t been really replicated by other games, but it is THREE TIMES AS LONG, WHAT THE FUCK IS WRONG WITH YOU.

Anime was a mistake.

You can skip the other Ace Attorney games. They're super good, but trust me, play these ones first.

dont have a rating really i was playing it on my 3ds but it just didnt turn on again and i lost everything but i know its really good
