    I've always wanted to get into this series, I'm just wondering which is the best game (of all of them, recent including spinoffs) in your opinion - and which is the most fun? Thanks in advance. [​IMG]

    Start from the first game, otherwise some of the references, jokes and what not may be lost on you.

    Start with the first one, Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney, otherwise you'll miss out on references and such.
    Technically Ace Attorney Investigations: Miles Edgeworth is the best game in the series, but only because it's harder to get confused.

    Personally I find AAI: Miles Edgeworth to be the best in the series in terms of game play. I find the whole moving around and the logic system to be refreshing... I find AJ to be the black sheep in the family. I found it not as engaging and some of the cases were so drawn out... plus it seems to introduce some "contradictions" of its own to the established series storyline involving phoenix and crew.

    Yeah but the last couple of chapters in AJ are epic, and do a nice job in wrapping everything up/
    But I'd also recommend the first one first, it's the eaisest way to get into the gameplay....

    Playing AJ made be wish that all of the characters would all go drown in the same pool.

    Am I the only one who liked Apollo Justice...? I admit it's probably the weakest in the series, but it's still a great game, and I LOVED the last cases.. they were just really entertaining. I loved the characters too :S

    Aaanyway, yeah.. play them all starting with Ace Attorney 1, because that's the order they were meant to be played and you'll probably get the best experience [​IMG]

    Also, how is Investigations the best in the series?? It's a nice change from the repeated courtroom games, and the logic is straightforward, but its far from being the BEST game in terms of storyline! :/

    Since we're on the topic, if I've played all the PW games, is it worth playing Apollo Justice before Miles Edgeworth?

    Where intellect matters
    My opinion of the quality of the games:

    PW3>ATI(Mile Edgeworth the new one)>PW1>PW2>AJ

    PW2 was my least favorite overall, but the final case was epic.

    PW: AA's first case was the best and easiest. ^^

    Personally I played the demo of Apollo Justice they offered through the Nintendo Channel first and loved it then finally came back to the games with the release of Phoenix Wright on WiiWare which I'm about half way through and I have enjoyed almost all of it (having to go back and forth between locations for evidence got a bit tedious). Then I got Miles Edgeworth which adds a new twist of gameplay which looks good although I'm not past the first case yet. Since I've effectively had a taster of all 3 character's games I'd say that PW is a good starting point with it's sequels probably following suit although they may get repetitive. Then if you're looking to refresh yourself, Miles Edgeworth it is.

    i always hated the investigation part and loved the courtroom part of a case.it's good to see that courtroom stuff has been implemented in the investigation part in AAI:ME but i miss the courtroom very much now.the humour of the bald old judge,the atmosphere of the courtroom.those are the things that made the series so entertaining to me.so i don't like the new game very much.but it's still a good game.at least better than AJ.

    It's always best to start with the first game of a series which has a good continuous storyline.
    I like the last case of the 3rd game most.
