    Urgh, I suppose I need to drag myself to finish AA5. That game is soooo bad though :(

    I liked it more than any other game of the series (and I had already played every game).

    What's wrong about it?

    I started playing it after an Ace Attorney 1-4 marathon. I never liked 4, it just doesn't feel as tight as the others but still, it's a good game when compared to 5. It's just that AA5 feels slow, the characters are uninteresting and they just flaunt their gimmicks at you (there are SO many animations now that every single dialog is just painful) to cover for the fact that they've got zero depth.

    It just feels like a bad AA - I didn't have such a bad time with an Ace Attorney game since playing AA: Investigations. I'm still not sure how I managed to finish it. That game was total crap - also, I did start AA2, but just seeing the cringe-worthy intro made me desist from going further than that.

    It seems like Capcom has lost their touch after AA4.

    Is it that bad ? I have it on my 3DS but I must admit I only finished the first trial (which is pretty much a tutorial, and when you've played the others games in the serie it's pretty much always the same thing) And a bit off topic, but did you try Ace Attorney Vs. Professor Layton ?

    Well, you got a point there.

    It was the same for me. Played AA1-AA4 and then AA5, it didn't feel bad at all. It had way better gameplay. While the dialogues aren't the best ones in the series, I felt really intrigued at some points.

    I understand what you say, though.

    I liked it, anyway, a lot more than Apollo Justice, at least.

    Even finishing the first case felt like a chore. Maybe the fact that they wanted to go with 3D graphics didn't help - I really miss the old, clean 2D graphics. Animations were way quicker that way.

    Not yet, but I think I'm definitely gonna like it more than AA5 :P

    Yeah I totally understand, the 3D gives some kind of eerie feeling to the game...

    Am I the only one that really enjoyed Apollo Justice? :(
    Sure, it felt weird at first (because you don't play as Phoenix and because of *spoilers*). But once you think about it, they pulled it off rather well. The only thing that sucks about it is that they forgot about the mom after that game. I kind of want to know what happens to her and if her children ever found out (trying to be as vague as possible to avoid spoiling it).

    I like that the chapters of AA games connect with each other, especially those in AA5. The only 'boring-ish' AA game for me probably is AA2. Also I can't stand Franziska for some reason.

    This news makes me happy....in my pants.

    Seriously though, I didn't realize the release was so close....in my pants.

    But for real, this is great news. Huge fan of the series, more is always welcome, hyped for the demo and already have cash set aside for the minute 1 purchase. Assuming I can free up any space. I've gone a bit mental with my eShop purchases in recent months and my 32GB MSD card is pretty much full.

    Playing a marathon might have a little to do with it too..? I only have Layton vs. PW left to finish, other than that I've played trough all of them... and by the end of - I belive - everyone of those games I just longed for the game to be over. Same thing with Layton, but those games get tedious way earlier.

    Probably because the writer for the series, Shu Takumi, was busy making Ghost Trick, and the fact that he didn't want AA4 to have Phoenix in it at all. Capcom disagreed, and railroaded him into writing Phoenix in the story, and basically rewrote half of Takumi's plot. In 5/Dual Destinies, Capcom ousted Takumi entirely, and the story was written by someone else in-house. People say Justice For All had some slow and painful cases moments, but, ugh, 5 takes the cake. At least I can take solace that in 6, Maya is back.

    I felt like the first AA game was one of the best since it was not cliche with tying in EVERY-SINGLE-CASE-into the last one.........
    I liked the first miles edgeworth game but cant find an english version of the second one......

    Playing a marathon lets you compare the game with a fresh memory, sometimes too much time passes between playing one episode and the other that you end up forgetting how good the first ones were compared to the later ones.

    I wished that for some cases in 2 and 4, and well, the first case in 5 as well :P

    Yeah, I know about that. I'm sure it's exactly for that reason that I don't like the AA games anymore. Takumi was brilliant, and if even part of 4 was his, that explains why it's still better than 5.

    I've recently replayed JFA and the only case which was "ugh why so slow" was the circus one. The rest were pretty good, and the last one rocks. Except for a few dead moments in the earlier parts of the case.

    I actually quite like how almost every case tied into each other in the original trilogy. It made even the most boring case interesting, if only for what it meant in the big picture.

    Somwhere you can never find.
    I have enjoyed all ace attorneys so far and I cant wait for this one. However anyone here thinks that adding magic (séances) might make things different.
