I know that Angry Joe is a fan of Ace Attorney and the game is officially out so... why not. I started covering this game so I hope everyone enjoys it. With a game like this, I upload a lot and I make sure to get it all done. I will do that. We begin with Case 1: The Foreign Turnabout. More will come tomorrow. That I promise.
DestinyDecade posted a topic in Written Reviews & PreviewsYou never see a handheld review so I'm going to make this short. It's been six years since we last saw a real Ace Attorney game and Phoenix Wright is back in the newest game of the series, Dual Destinies. The story is set one year after the events of Apollo Justice: Ace Attorney (Gyakuten Saiban 4) and the courts have now entered into a dark phase. Incidents have torn people and the truth apart and it's up to one man to set things right. You take control of three different characters: Phoenix Wright, Apollo Justice and newcomer Athena Cykes. Each of them possess unique skills that set them apart in helping you find the truth. You play them through five different cases where your objective is finding your client's innocence but getting there is not easy. Now about these three characters, they have special abilities. Phoenix Wright has his Magatama and Psyche-Locks. The Psyche-Lock system has you talking to witnesses and you present evidence in order for them to talk. Unlike previous games, there are no penalties if you mess up which is a bummer but at least this time, you can take your time and choose the right evidence. Succeed and they'll talk. Apollo Justice has Perceive which lets him see if a person's lying. You hear testimony and if you see them react, find it and boom. Sometimes you have to submit evidence to further boost your claim and if successful, you'll get some additional information. In this game, it's done outside of court which is very nifty. Athena Cykes, the newest character has the Mood Matrix. In Trials, the Mood Matrix is used to find discord in a witness's testimony. If an emotion is out of place in someone's testimony, you can pinpoint one of four emotions: Happy, Sad, Angry and Surprised. Other times, an overflow of emotions can cause things to shake up. Therefore you need to Probe and find out what's causing the emotions to go out of control. It's a really brilliant system that adds a new level of finding the truth in court. The game is split into two sections: Investigation and Trial. In Investigation, you travel through different locations to look for evidence. Sometimes you need to look one step further so you can interact with certain items to find more clues. In addition, you also talk with various witnesses. Some witnesses can be tough ones to crack so you'll need to present evidence to make them talk. If you succeed, then you're one step closer in preparing yourself for the trial to come. In Trial, you're in court and you take on the prosecution using all the evidence and knowledge you've obtained in the investigation. Witnesses will take the stand and testify what they know. As a Defense Attorney, your job is to see if they're either lying or telling the truth. You do it in two ways: Pressing and Presenting. Pressing witnesses can help you know more about what happened. Sometimes you get additional testimony that can help and other times, it doesn't do much. Presenting evidence at certain points can help find a person's lies but be careful, doing so in a manner you shouldn't will get you penalized. Get penalized a few times and you lose. At least with this game, you can try again without having to go to the Main Menu. From a visual standpoint, this game is really great for a 3DS game. Simply top notch. The character models look really awesome and they add a sense of life to the game. The locations are awesome and they can range from a village to a prestigious academy. Music is simply cool adding atmosphere and at times can drive you to the edge of your seat. Simply awesome. I have a few favorite tracks and I recommend you listen to the OST and see for yourself. As for length, this game is long at about 20-30 hours. It's a game that once you start playing, you'll get hooked. Sure there isn't much replayability but the upcoming DLC case will probably add a few extra hours to your game time. There are anime cutscenes in the game that propel the story forward with the voice acting spot on. The game does have some flaws and for starters, I feel that they dumbed down the investigation parts of the game. In previous games, you can investigate every nook and cranny finding unique things which can lead to humorous bits. Here, once your cursor spots something red, it counts as something important. I feel that the game is holding your hand with this one and that is a bummer. I don't know if there are any other flaws but that's all I can see from my experience of it. Final thoughts... this game is one you shouldn't pass up. When they say the game is dark due to that M rating, they meant it. It has a story that has you pitting your beliefs to the test all while putting you on a roller coaster where finding the truth isn't as easy as people say. It has great characters, strong visuals, catchy music and a presentation that screams awesome. If you have a 3DS and $30 with you, get this game. You will not be disappointed. It hasn't for me and neither should you. My final verdict for this game is a 9 out of 10! A Must own with Angry Joe's BAD-ASS seal of approval.
