    The Great Ace Attorney Chronicles isn’t just a reminder of why the series as a whole is beloved, but also a reaffirmation that video games can be capable of so much more as an entertainment medium. Straddling the line somewhere between book and interactive movie, The Great Ace Attorney Chronicles takes players through case after case packed with wonderful characters, stories, and clever brain teasers. Although adventure games/visual novels aren’t everyone’s cup of tea, if you’ve been looking to try one for the first time or give them another shot, this is the game. The Great Ace Attorney Chronicles is a blast.

    The Great Ace Attorney Chronicles is well worth your time, offering one of the most compelling stories on the Switch. It’s refined, charming, and engaging, and a great experience for newcomers and fans of the Ace Attorney franchise alike.

    Although it can be tough at times to jump into an era that you’re unfamiliar with, The Great Ace Attorney Chronicles masterfully offers all of the gameplay you’d hope for without leaning on other iterations for story content.

    This is an impressively complete story. By the end of Resolve, I felt like all of the plot threads had been tied up; that questions that had lingered, some for almost 80 hours, had been answered. While Chronicles moves too slowly at times--especially during the Adventures half--the payoff at the end is worth the wait.

    Franchise fans should be psyched to get the two Great Ace Attorney games, and in a polished package. It won’t change your mind about these titles one way or the other, unless you have a strong feeling about the period-piece setting. But it does what it sets out to do.

Finally after waiting 6 years we have the english dubbed version. It’s honestly the best game to get on the switch this year. It’s witty, charming and full of mysteries waiting to be solved. The price is perfect for the two games you get. A 10/10 visual novel & adventure game. Expand

It has groundbreaking mechanics that I wish I had seen in later Ace Attorney games (considering they were implemented in 3DS before 2 other sequels). The cases are fun, and the mysteries interesting, since you can see that there is a bigger plot, something that in the first trilogy was distributed in all the games in one or two cases, and that felt fragmented and left out.
    In this game, the cases are much longer, and that made me a bit tedious, but as a game, honestly, he is the best Ace Attorney. Maybe the crossover with Professor Layton will just outweigh it, but it's a crossover, and it borrowed a ton of ideas from The Great Ace Attorney.

    You should ignore most of the negative comments that only criticize the difficulty of the game (which is very good, albeit with a somewhat annoying tutorial).
