For such a well-respected Adventure/RPG game, the onset of a new entry in the excellent Ace Attorney series brings with it surprisingly little fanfare. This latest take on the characters brings with it a darker storyline and an end to Phoenix’s domination as the title character. Yelling “OBJECTION!” into your DS microphone at opportune times never really gets old, and the narrative threads presented in this edition of the series are perhaps the most well-constructed of any of the Phoenix Wright games. The graphics, as far as the DS is concerened, are top notch, and the puzzles will have you playing well into the night. Trials and Tribulations is not a role-playing game in the traditional sense, though it does force you to become immersed in your characters and solve puzzles based on personalities, dispositions, and, of course, the copious evidence. All in all, it’s simply a fantastic way to spend 20 hours.
