    All in all, it’s really in the way that the sum of all of Phoenix Wright’s parts comes together for a campy, thrilling time.

    Even if you’ve already played the first three Ace Attorney games, Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney Trilogy offers the opportunity to experience all those legal shenanigans on the big screen. And if you’ve never seen Phoenix Wright bluff his way to victory, it’d be criminal to miss out.

    The Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney Trilogy gives PS4 owners the unique chance to experience the first days of rookie attorney Phoenix Wright, on his path to Justice, via his own Trials and Tribulations. A trilogy of three amazing titles, with 14 well-developed cases and with an amazing cast of characters, is an early Easter gift to fans of good interactive novels. Players who have never experienced an Ace Attorney game within the previous 20 years, are sure to experience great storytelling within an even greater context; still, it might prove to be a chore for players who have experienced themselves with the games, one way or another.

    Phoenix Wright has finally made his debut on a PlayStation console in the form of the Ace Attorney Trilogy, and you'll have absolutely no objections from us. This collection of three brilliant games is well worth the attention of adventure game fans, visual novel aficionados, or budding lawyers. The mind-bending, labyrinthine murder plots are far-fetched but engaging, the writing is consistently pithy and amusing, and the characters you'll meet are charming and unique. It's an open and shut case – Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney Trilogy rocks.

    If you’ve never had the opportunity to indulge in one of this brand’s prior incarnations, Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney Trilogy is a fantastic chance to explore your inner gumshoe. The amount of content delivered in this package will keep you gleefully badgering witnesses, in glorious HD, for far longer than the price would indicate. However, for those considering a second trip into the courtroom, you may want to consider if you hold high definition visuals at a premium.

    A great package that includes the HD versions of the first three games of the Ace Attorney series. If you haven't played any of them or you missed one, its a great opportunity to give a try. On the other hand and if you are a veteran fan, you will enjoy it a lot too, even though it doesn't offer anything new at all.

    If Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney Trilogy were a less lazy operation, at the bottom of this page would take a very different score.

    It's the OG Pheonix Wright Trilogy, what can you say? One the greatest puzzle VNs ever made. The rush of adreniline you get catching out a lieIt's the OG Pheonix Wright Trilogy, what can you say? One the greatest puzzle VNs ever made. The rush of adreniline you get catching out a lie is still unmatched. While these ports do have some caveats, such as the new art being a little too clean and sterile, this is counteracted with the ability to play these masterpieces on a big tv in surround sound. If you've played these before, it is a great way to reexperience them in a cinematic way. If you haven't its a great entry point, encompassing many of the the series highlights.
    Here's hoping for a new, modern entry made for consoles!

    The first game was worth the 30 euro price tag alone but to have all three is just amazing. I'm into thr third game and liekly have had 40The first game was worth the 30 euro price tag alone but to have all three is just amazing. I'm into thr third game and liekly have had 40 hours of just a great time. It's simple enough to not be a headache and just complicated enough that you need to pay atrention to the details.

    The writing is fantastic. The sound and music is phenomenal. The graphics are serviceable to begin with and often have some nice art in rare places. Text upscales to 4k very well and honestly one would have to look within two feet or so to notice that it is not really 4k dispite the scale.

    My only critism worth mentioning beside individual critique of certain cases is the options and in particular the skip text option, the normal skip will have you pressing multiple times and often hammering X, the skip box is the box is the best option but you will likely skip pargraphs by accent. There should be a reverse text button at all times as there is with witness testimonies. Other than that some parts of the games can drag but this is only an issue because it is 3 games in one and each game is perfectly sized. Content is never a bad thing.

    A really well done port if jist a tad finicky and three great games (As far as I can see with three episodes left). In fact, the games get better as they go on with new mechanics opeing up greater depth. A real gem.
