Ace attorney... I must say, this series HAS changed me (in a good way (hopefully)) the concept of thinking before placing judgement on things (and defending things passionately)
My personal favourite is the original AA. I feel that adding the 2nd and 3rd games mechanics
in particular... the profiles tab being selectable and needs to be presented at times...
were just a tad too much.. I played them in this order, PWAA, AJAA, JFA, T&T, AAI
I admit, that i used a walkthrough Heavily in certain parts of AJ, JFA, T&T and AAI
During the last case for a majority... but during JFA and T&T, a few times when i got stuck in needing to do a certain action
My preference of games goes as follows
PWAA, T&T, AAI, AJAA, JFA (for the aforementioned parts)
Now, AA5... That boxart... having a look at previous boxarts, Something that is a common theme.. you have, Main Character, "primary" assitant, Main antagonist, And the main point of the story (with PWAA being the exception), So i will (cause i can "safely") put money on Apollo being the "centre" of the story...
I have two griefs with this game...
1, Phoenix looks... different (i know age is a factor... but in AJ, you can see a resemblance, and AA5 sprite looks NOTHING like AJ sprite (regardless of different things... *goes to have a look at Original sprite vs new*)
Ok, there is some resemblance...
There is a HUGE difference between GBA and 3ds, And i must say, Older is better, He's good in PLvsAA, But it doesnt convert in AA5, Its just a few small details... I think he's too "bright" The pallete is being bright in the sense, but eh, its only a character draw, graphics dont determine a games quality (but they can chase people away
the 2nd thing...
Im going to have to put in a spoiler...
So... Heres the problem they have created, They have dumped the "original" cast with no backstory whatsoever... We need at least one "intro case", Prolly not a backstory case (AAI and T&T cough, unless we get something between T&T- Graeymere or anything inbetween involving the "old cast" (knowing my luck, it will be apollos trial "6 months ago" xD)) so 3 cases to work with... Im going to say at least 1 for apollo (with maybe mentions in previous chapters...) and leaving two chapters to bring in the old cast... (although AJ tied in All four so beautifully...)
Expectations for this game:
Trucy makes an appearance/mention (outside of the locket)
Ema has a "good" relation ship with wright, similar of how Gumshoe would help out wright in a crisis (exhibit last case of each game)
The prosecutor has a "von karma" attitude (considering a motif of this game is fixing the judicial system...)
And with the last note... Trials will be bench trials (or else why have the motif?)
The series has a combination of great story, great characters, good music, And i cant wait for AA5 to come out (in english, Along with AAI2, PLvsAA)
