Current Addiction: Ace Attorney, Part 1

That's what she said.

Yesterday, I just blathered on and on about how much I love the Turnabout Trial/Ace Attorney games.  My post gathered a mixed response; some folks liked the games, some folks thought it'd suck, and a large group of people were confused by the concept. I suppose that means I should dive a little deeper and actually review the game. Or games, rather. There are currently five games in the series, for a total of 23 cases. Twenty four victims, fifteen different defendants, five investigations to conduct, twenty three culprits to find. Every case is a Turnabout-- because you turn the case around against unbeatable odds to solve it. If you're into solving murder mysteries and being the underdog, this game is for you.

Platform: Initially GBA, Re-released for DS, Wii, and iPhone
Company: Capcom
Year: 2001 (Japan/GBA), 2004(DS), 2009(Wii, iPhone)
