    Chock full of humor and RPGish elements, Devil's Attorney is cleverly entertaining and a real treat for mobile gamers.

    This universal game is witty, entertaining, and engaging. It looks great, has interesting dialog and offers challenging turn-based strategy gaming that will keep you playing for hours.

    One could say that not playing it would be criminal. And should you be accused of such a felony, I can only hope a lawyer as corrupt as Max McMann is serving as prosecutor.

    Devil's Attorney is a hilarious spoof of courtroom dramas, with a roguish hero who wins every case by being unscrupulous.

    The artwork is very polished and the storyline is original and witty. There is a lot of funny banter between the attorneys at the beginning of each round and it's almost as if the developers hired a screenplay writer to write all the content.

    Like Capcom's courtroom drama, Devil's Attorney is an addictive puzzler whose courtroom metaphor for battle makes for one of the most unique and absorbing games you'll find on mobile or any other platform.

    It's a compulsive and occasionally funny ride, but the battles become a tad repetitive. [Jan 2013, p.89]

    Devil's Attorney is an unexpected surprise thanks to its perfect mix of great presentation, amusing sense of humour and simple but deep game mechanics.

    Taking turn based RPG combat away from fantasy and sci-fi, and playing things in a courtroom is enough of a spin to make Devil's Attorney worth a play (and the stylish character that the game is infused with doesn't hurt either).

    It might not have the drama of the courtroom, but Devil's Attorney is still a great way to waste a few hours getting criminals off the hook.

    Devil's Attorney has got nothing to do with Phoenix Wright. There I said it in the final paragraph. Many had hoped for a new text based adventure game set in a courtroom, but alas Devil's Attorney is not it. It is however a truly fun turn based strategy game set in that very same courtroom. I highly recommend it.

    A turn based strategy game, set in a courtroom with a great atmosphere and fun dialogue. It takes a little too long for the difficulty to kick in, and the game mechanics feel a bit too simple at times.

    It's not as funny as it thinks it is, nor as enjoyable. [Jan 2013, p.31]

    Great game! Couldn't stop playing. It gets repetitive after some time, but wouldn't hold it against it. Hope developers make some other games with Max in main role. Full Review »
