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 a fantastic duology that visual novel and mystery fans will love. It’s also a great starting point for newcomers in the Ace Attorney franchise. With strong writing and deep, yet fun characters, this bundle will keep you engaged for every minute of its 50-60 hour runtime.
Adventures is amazing with consistently great cases, and feels very fresh, and has awesome new characters. But what really makes TGAA Chronicles is Resolve. That's tied for Trials and Tribulations as my favourite video game of all time. Every case in the game is amazing, and the villain line up here is exceptional. The themes, like not overidealizing others, and the truth not always leading to happiness are really well done. The soundtrack and visuals are the best in the series. The characters are written so well and all have excellent development. And there are several moments in the game that just had my jaw on the floor. It's just a masterpiece all around. Don't listen to those negative reviews, they just capping.
The Great Ace Attorney Chronicles is two brilliant games for the price of one, and it not only gives us more of what we love, but gives us something that is visually, narratively, and historically deeper than ever before. There's a bit of a learning curve that you'll have to get on top of to meet the game where it's at, but honestly, we couldn't have asked for a better version of the game we've been wanting for years.
The Great Ace Attorney Chronicles is a solid package, retaining the charm and entertainment of previous entries. It's not the series’ best, but there’s plenty to keep you entertained as you work your way through case after case. The new scenery and characters made things feel fresh, but playing another Ace Attorney game also felt a bit like coming home.
For every fan out there who were passionately waiting for the chance to play a localized version of Shu Takumi's last games this is a true celebration. The Great Ace Attorney Chronicles is an engrossing and fun adventure with a unique settings, and a familiar, yet completely new cast of characters.
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.
This is my favorite game of all time, just buy it. the writing in this game (especially the second one in the collection), is absolutely genius. this game does so much so right, the fantastic graphics, legendary soundtrack, memorable characters, the best protagonist in the series, I could literally not recommend this game enough. I'm being a little vague here, but if you love visual novels, or you're just a passer by like I was when I found this series, buy this game. this game was 60 dollars on steam and took years to be localized, but it was all worth it
The game is ok. Overall, the cases are well thought out, it is easy to control and it's a fine game you can sit and play quietly. But it’s really slow and it's not always that fun. I think you spend too much time on unimportant things in the game. It was nice to try the game but I don't know if I want to play it again.
The reviews of this game have hyped it way too much. I was hoping for something as good as the very first Ace Attorney, but this is actually a very uneven double-feature. The first half feels like a kind of experiment trying out a bunch of new features but forgetting to craft good mysteries to solve. The constant references to Sherlock Holmes stories don’t help, as these ‘twists’ on classic tales are vastly inferior. The second half is MUCH, much better: There are actual dead bodies and crime scenes to investigate, and an incredible middle chapter that is steeped in sci-fi and futurism.
But then in that classic AA style, it ends with a ridiculously convoluted mix of soap opera and conspiracy theory, whereby you somehow end up ignoring the actual crime in front of you for complete conjecture on long-forgotten events.
For the diehard AA fans this will probably be more than enough, but I was left feeling disappointed. A 7/10 game, one to pick up on sale.
Love the story lines and the vibe they’re going for, but it’s a bit slow. While playing you need to solve the mystery and then read how they’re retelling what you’ve just solved.
If you’re someone who loves solving mysteries and participating in them, really searching for clues then this game isn’t for you either. They actually make the “clues” super obvious, it gets obnoxious.
I was very excited for this game but it ended up with me just auto playing the dialogue.. wouldn’t buy again.
SummaryWith all the fun and drama of the Ace Attorney series set against the backdrop of Victorian-era Britain and Japan, there's sure to be no "Objection!" to the adventures of Ryunosuke Naruhodo as he turns the courtroom upside down.
