Phoenix Wright Ace Attorney on the DS is a game made especially for people who are interested in a clever, well-presented murder-mystery adventure games. You will be the Ace Attorney himself who just passed the bar and who will unfortunately take a hard case for your first job. To start with the game, you will be tutored by your best friend, Larry Butz who is also a lawyer about the in and outs of the courtroom procedures. The levels after the tutorial will have the same processes as those with what you just learned. All will involve the same hearing processes and almost the same cases. The first five usually is the easiest because it will be almost basic.
As you move through with the game, you will understand that discovering the killer is not the main aim of the game. The main goal of this game will be on how you will bring the accused to justice. Bringing the accused to justice though will not be that easy since contradicting parties will also do their best to oppose your statements. This will be a game of wit and tactics.
The trials that you will be encountering will start with the witness testimony where you will need to find flaws in what is being stated. There will be two ways on how to figure out the flaws on the statement. One is by “pressing” the witness on points that you think is doubtful, and second is to match a certain statement with a piece of evidence. These two tools of breaking down the witnesses’ statements will prove useful for you to push them to confess.
The arrangement of the game together with its story lines is really quite unique and outstanding. The graphics are very much detailed from the personality and mood of each of the characters. Each character competes with each other on this game, from the naive Phoenix and the severe but gullible judge, to the sexy, evil, and quirky characters that is presented on the witness stand.
