Capcom Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney Justice For All
More quirky courtroom antics
- It's fun
- Sometimes illogical
Justice For All demonstrates enough of the plucky spirit that made the first game so memorable. Fans and newcomers alike should look into this title but we're going to keep our fingers crossed that the developers come up with something new for future titles.

Phoenix Wright, the titular star of the cult hit DS game, is back for another dose of quirky courtroom antics and he's as naive and bumbling as ever. But is there enough new content to keep fans of the original entertained?
The answer is both yes and no. The game will definitely leave gamers with a sense of deja-vu as visually, it's a direct carbon copy of the first title. Everything looks and feels like it was directly ripped from the last game. This gives Justice For All an expansion pack feel but that's not necessarily a bad thing as the earlier instalment was good enough that gamers will be hungry for more.
Court Is In Session
There are a few subtle changes that spice up the game play — there is now an energy meter instead of the five exclamation points and a spiritual object called the Magatama allows you to interrogate people outside of the courtroom — but it's essentially the same game. Cases still start off in the typical Scooby-Doo fashion and players must do a little detective work before heading into the court room to press witness and present evidence to the judge.
Court Is Adjourned
But just as the game retains the humour and weirdness of the original, it also holds onto all the bad habits of its older sibling. There are still a ton of text boxes to read through and certain puzzles are better solved through random guessing than actual detective work. Also, the plot is over the top and not always in a good way; the word 'illogical' barely begins to describe some of the things that occur before your eyes.
