    The Great Ace Attorney Chronicles has great characters, visuals and an intriguing plot, but the new mechanics offer no challenge or player engagement, making this a solid entry for returning fans but offering little to entice newcomers.

    Unfocussed mechanics and not enough Herlock Sholmes means it doesn’t live up to its full potential, though series fans will have a hoot with the mysteries. [Issue#5, p.80]

    All in all, The Great Ace Attorney Chronicles is a wonderful entry point for players fresh to the franchise. The main cast of characters is charming and bursting with personality, even without voice acting; there are so many entertaining cases to go through, and the courtroom dramatics will keep players mostly intrigued and on their toes. The Great Ace Attorney Chronicles isn't the best pair of Ace Attorney games out there, but they will still provide players with an enjoyable experience that will last for many, many hours.

    The humour is thankfully intact, but the mysteries grow as ornate and heavily threaded as Sholmes’s overcoat.

    An exemplary remastering that includes two great graphic novels that make up an entire story arc. The best trials of the videogame scene are back and they do it with two titles that have never been published in our territory. The Great Ace Attorney Chronicles takes us back to Victorian England to talk about crimes, corruption, legislation and many other topics treated through the prism of western romanticization that anime from Japan has done. To be something less redundant and more direct would have been wonderful and would have reduced the number of hours needed to complete it. Still, if you are able to overcome the language barrier, you will find a different videogame full of humor and second readings.

    Definitely, The Great Ace Attorney Chronicles has great value not only for fans, but also for any player who want to experience a brilliant story, charismatic characters and an engaging gameplay. [Recommended]

    If The Great Ace Attorney: Adventures is your first Ace Attorney game, welcome! This is a wonderful place to start your Ace Attorney journey. If it’s not, you may get frustrated by the hours of exposition as you eagerly button-mash your way to your next courtroom appearance.

I wouldn't say they are the best games in the series, but the animations and new gameplay are great.

    Pro tip: turn on skip text in settings, in case you read faster than the slow scrolling text.
