  1. A great game, and the best entry in the franchise. The storyline never fails to impress: it dives very deep into the darkest pits of the human mind while still having a sense of humor about it.
  2. It doesn't solve any of the flaws of the previous Wii adaptations, but it is still a fantastic adventure.
  3. One of the better games in the series but yet another lazy port by Capcom. [July 2010, p.92]
  4. Take the previous game in the series and change nothing, add some new cases, some big plot holes, and a couple of stupid characters. That's Trials & Tribulations.
  5. 60
    Sadly, when considering this game's origins, Trials and Tribulations on WiiWare looks and sounds like nothing more than -- yet another -- lazy port to the console.
  6. If you're one of the people who don't own a DS system (all four of you), this might be worth a play for you, but unless you're just a die-hard Phoenix Wright fan that has to have everything related to the series, you might want to pass on this half-hearted WiiWare attempt.
  7. One of the best Ace Attorney games still looks awful on the Wii, in another lazy and irreverent port.

It's the most serious title in the series but that didn't bother me since it has some very shocking twist and some intense moments of drama. Even though it's the more serious than your typical AA game there's still humour and when the game does decide to be humorous it's the funniest the series has ever been (this game also has the silliest characters too, the case "recipe for turnabout" is a great example of this). This game also let's you play as Mia in 2 mini cases which helps mix things up a bit and the character Godot is probably the best rival in the series. The soundtrack is also pretty great too. Overall I think AA 3 is an amazing game and I highly recommend it. Expand
