This is a top pick for the best entry in the Ace Attorney series. A refreshing new world, some very wise cherry-picking of the best gameplay ideas from the Professor Layton crossover, and some really fun characters build towards a highly engaging experience. You may find, though, that it ends without much of a good conclusion and with a million loose ends. Of course, this is because you have only just finished the first game in the collection.

The second game in the collection is a top pick for the most dull entries in the series. Lacking any new or interesting plot developments, characters, or gameplay mechanics, you will find that The Great Ace Attorney Chronicles gets boring about 30 hours in, and then continues for another 30 hours afterwards.

Drop it the moment it gets boring. It seems this game carried over more than just gameplay mechanics from Professor Layton Vs. Phoenix Wright.

Currently on case 5.

The plot itself isn't bad but the writing can be really abysmal at times, and I'm saying this as an Ace Attorney fan.

Lots of unnecessary filler dialogue. It's the first time I've skipped dialogue in an AA game.

AMAZING GAME BECAUSE IT HAS KAZUMA ASOGI

one of the best video games ever made; peak fiction

Incredible story, memorable characters, amazing soundtrack and truly tear-jerking moments.
Don't miss out on these little storytelling masterpieces.

P.S.: These games have made me forget that Sherlock Holmes is the true name of the character. I mean, Herlock Sholmes sounds much more hilariously real, doncha think?

I played this back-to-back with the original AA trilogy and these two games are damn near flawless. The highlight is the setting: the Victorian and Meiji-era set pieces are fully fleshed out, with the writers/artists managing to cram more world-building and cultural competence into ~70 hours than most open-world games do. This bleeds into the story quite a bit, with the writers being able to embrace AA humor, wacky old-school stereotypes, and Sherlock Holmes parodies while still telling a story about race and justice. The gameplay also has new modes of debate/investigation to keep things fresh and the orchestrated music bangs. It's hard to overstate how well all these points of inspiration come together. Please play this.
