    The series is over a decade old now, but you’ll find that the story and dialogue are still as witty and charming as ever.

    For those who like the sound of a lawyer simulator, with plenty of plot to delve into, no objections should be made when deciding to purchase Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney Trilogy.

    It’s not perfect, but there really should be no objection to letting Phoenix Wright into your life.

    With no new features aside from the rudimentary 3D, this collection is meant to satisfy those who haven’t come to love the unique and colorful world of Phoenix Wright.

    It's not a perfect port, but this is a massive, faithful, and wonderful inexpensive collection of three terrific adventure games.

    It's a pity that Capcom did not invest time and money in this collection, as these are among the best titles that have ever graced the Nintendo DS. No extras, no localization for the Italian market and a steep price cannot be ignored.

    I will admit I am a little biased as I do think no game is "Perfect." Id rate this a 9.8 if I had the option. The thing about AAT is that itI will admit I am a little biased as I do think no game is "Perfect." Id rate this a 9.8 if I had the option. The thing about AAT is that it takes ALL 3 Games from the ds and outs it into around a 65 HOUR game for $30! The characters music game play and more just flows so nice together. Do yourself a favor and play AAT NOW Expand

    Slightly reworked graphics, rest is as good as ever (even the Movie was totally awesome =)

    It´s a must "Rebuy" to make sure Capcom will produce / translate / release more Titles like this. Combining "Visual Novel / Adventurestyle / Court-Action" mixed with colorful Characters is still entertaining, even on my third playthrough. Dont forget the Score! The Music received even a "classical" treadment. It´s right up there with the most iconic soundtracks ever. The DS Part 1 especially!

There are still a few typos like in the Mask Demasque case where a "brooch" is called a "broach," but that's not really a big deal. I took off one point mainly because of one case in the second game ... the infamous Barry's Big Top. Expand

    I have rated each game individually and the average score is 9.33, so a 9 it is for the whole package.

    As a visual novel / logic adventure hybrid, it definitely stands toe to toe with the best out there such as Danganronpa and Zero Escape series. The beautiful part about visual novel based games is that they age very well so although Ace Attorney is an older series of games, it stays competitive with contemporary competitors.

    It is very different from Danganronpa and Zero Escape games in its atmosphere. Danganronpa and Zero Escape always had this grim and dreadful atmosphere and premise, whereas Ace Attorney is a lot more lighthearted and offers a ton of laugh out loud humor. Doesn't mean its a kiddie game, after all, you are a defense attorney dealing with constant murder cases.

    Great characters with great dialogue, well drawn art and very good music. Pretty much everything you need in a visual novel to have a good time.
    If you are looking to get into Ace Attorney series, this trilogy is the place to start.

All of the original Phenix Wright games are here, they look better than ever with new graphics and animations, better way to listen to the awesome soundtrack and it plays the same as it did on the DS. If you have never played an Ace Attorney game this is a must buy, this is the best way to play the original trilogy, but for the people that already did beware, there's nothing new here that you haven't played before, this is for the people who love PW and for those, like myself, that never played the originals.

If you're into the Visual Novel/Puzzle type of games, i would highly recommend you get Danganronpa or Virtue's Last Reward instead. Expand
