I've played this quite a while ago. This year, I came back to play it once more, whether I remember the cases or not (spoilers: I remembered them in their entirety). However, I never actually played case 5 this whole time. I don't know why, but I didn't.
So I played it.
It's interesting to call case 5 the peak of the game. Compared to the other games' peak cases - Which I will go through eventually, again. I've played them too - it's kind of, I don't know, alright? I think the general consensus about the first ace attorney is that this game paves the way for its sequels, and that is very much correct. I don't think I have much more to say about this game that hasn't been said before. If you like this game, you play the other ones. If you didn't like this game: Play the other ones anyways, I promise you they're a ride and a half.
