my most favorite ace attorney game from the whole series
i love the way this game was written out and i love the story and characters. i don’t love villans to often, but kristoph was such an interesting character to me and is still one of my faves from that game. if theres one thing i do wish however, is that the game gave a deeper backstory behind klavier and kristoph. yea theres some information given, but not a ton to build off from. i think it would have been interesting for them to have a deeper story and even tell more about the relationship between not only those two, but between kristoph and phoenix as well.

The issue with this game is that it feels like the first instrument of a trilogy, setting up a lot of plot points to be resolved in sequels, however, this game never really got a direct sequel, leaving it's story feeling incomplete.
There is still a lot of good to be found here, but it doesn't live up to it's incredible potential, which is a crying shame

imma be real with you fam I barely remember this. It was okay, I think? Better to be forgettable than memorably bad, I suppose. The prosecutor was a rockstar, I think? I've literally finished this game and it didn't stick with me, I guess.

it was just good, but not as great as the trilogy

hobo wright is an interesting sight to behold
