    Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney Trilogy isn't a serious experience, but it'll definitely get you thinking about the cases. It's a phenomenal puzzle game, and given the fact that the Xbox One port is this polished, I can't recommend it enough. You're getting hours and hours worth of content that will keep you coming back for more.

    The transition from portable devices to consoles hasn’t hurt the quality of the Ace Attorney Trilogy, which remain some of my favorite games of all time. Phoenix Wright and company are deserving of the big screen, and this game is well worth your time if you haven’t gotten around to playing it elsewhere.

    Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney Trilogy isn’t a collection that’ll entice people in who lack patience and don’t enjoy reading reams of text, that’s for sure. For those who love their storytelling though, I’d challenge anyone to point me in the direction of a game that hooks them in with such a thrilling selection of tales as this does; the cast of characters help ensure there’s plenty of intrigue.

    If you’ve never tried your hand at Phoenix Wright, the Ace Attorney trilogy is an absolute must. Everything from its memorable cast of characters and its wonderfully charismatic dialogue, right the way through to its vibrant presentation and its utterly stylish gameplay, is quite simply outstanding. Despite some moments within that are fairly linear by design alone, overlooking this compilation would be a sheer injustice.

    We've known courtroom dramas are exciting and engaging for a long time. Who hasn't been swept up in an episode or two of Law & Order: SVU while flipping through channels? There's something thrilling about watching a case unfold before your eyes and to see justice ultimately brought to light. The Ace Attorney Trilogy nails that feeling perfectly. It'll take you through captivating mysteries that have plenty of twists while still leaving you satisfied that you solved the crime rather than being drug through to the end. It'll let you pretend to be an attorney and find the gaps in testimony that reveal the true story. Most of all, it'll be an experience you won't find anywhere else.

    With its amazing writing and unforgettable characters, Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney Trilogy is catchy right from the start and up to the end of the game.

    Giving a whole new audience the chance to discover the exploits of fledgling defence lawyer Phoenix Wright and his bizarre world, Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney Trilogy is fantastic. There's no reason to object to this, Your Honour. I rest my case.

    This is an unofficial celebration of (nearly) 20 years of Phoenix Wright, and it’s a damn good one at that, even with its failings.

    Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney Trilogy is a good port for Xbox One on the main trilogy of one of Capcom's most iconic sagas. The virtues of the three included games and the charisma of the characters are still intact to this day.

    Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney Trilogy is a solid collection of courtroom dramedies, but far from essential for fans.

    Capcom finally brings to Xbox one of the best visual novels sagas of the past, with its brilliant dialogues and great characters. Unluckily, thought, it feels like a weak porting effort, especially due to the lack of foreign (Italian, in our case) localization, a very penalizing issue for a text-filled title like this one.

    The appeal of this game is hard to narrow down; for the young or non-gamer, it is a very straightforward and extremely easy to play game, in fact you have one button to press and one joystick to move the cursor around for selection. The game can perhaps offer some challenges as it progresses. For experienced detective style gamers, intellectuals and those who want fast paced action, this is not the game for you. With that being said, this game is very different to many games out there and that can be a very welcomed change indeed.

    Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney Trilogy makes you the defense attorney extraordinaire and you must lay down the law, find out who's guilty andPhoenix Wright: Ace Attorney Trilogy makes you the defense attorney extraordinaire and you must lay down the law, find out who's guilty and save the innocent. This is the original trilogy with high resolution graphics and immersive hand drawn art. You begin starting as a the new law attorney Phoenix Wright from the beginning of his career in a quest to find the truth behind all of the cases in this wonderful trilogy brought to us by Capcom! I would truly adore some more Capcom arcade classics collections (hint hint). Prepare for intense courtroom cases by investigating crime scenes, collecting evidence, and questioning witnesses. Use evidence and the testimonies of witnesses to your advantage as you defend the innocence of your client. You must find the contradictions in witness testimonies with facts and evidence, or by pressing hard on the witnesses. The cases are interesting, the stories are intense and twisted, and only get better as you advance through the trilogy. Mega fans and new comers alike there's something truly great here at an amazing price point. This game will keep you quite busy with all the content if you plan on finishing it, and it's all about old school redone fun. I'm not giving this game a rating for graphics and sound. It's fun, creative, makes you really use your head to solve some daunting cases. It's Phoenix Wright in the way you've couldn't experience before now. I am a huge fan of classic and retro gaming especially when they can be had in trilogies or collections. If you like me love detective and law shows or movies, this is right up your alley. The game isn't for everyone but for those that love the genre, it's a game at the top of it's game. Two massive thumbs up! Full Review »
