Being a fan to the Ace Attorney series, I haven't had a chance to play the Investigations game as I never picked it up when it first debuted. But I finally got it to see if it was any good, and my expectations were met. There's the assumption that it isn't as good as the Phoenix series, but I personally don't think that's right (haha, get it?).
The game play IS different, as you're running around instead of just point and clicking to go places, and since this is a game specifically designed to dive into the life of Edgeworth, and flush out his character, we're not in the courtroom 24/7. Rather, as the title implies, investigating out on the field. However, the game still retains some of the familiar mechanics: press, using evidence to back up your arguments, testimonies, etc. Instead of five tries like in Phoenix's court, Edgeworth gets a green bar up top in the left corner. It's treated exactly the same: each time you get something wrong, you lose a chunk until it's completely empty. It definitely gives you more tries than with Phoenix's exclamation points, but the catch is refilling the bar. When you save, your current bar is carried over to the next chapter (in the same case). It will not refill until you go into another investigation mode, and even then, it has a set amount it refills every time. There's also the introduction of Logic Mode, which is where you must string together pieces of thought and connect them to continue with the investigation.
The cases are all interconnected, which makes the game feel very unified. There is a plethora of comedic moments and quite a few touching ones as well. The only issue I had was getting 'stuck' on a couple of areas, but that may have just been me not understanding what was being asked. Oh and the immense amount of magenta...but that's Edgeworth for you!
Overall, I enjoyed myself and hope Capcom will release the sequel overseas, as unlikely as that may be. Playing this game made me want to go back and play the others again to relive the nostalgia (since Phoenix is absent). There were quite a few cameos from previous games that fans will know.
Investigations was fun and while there were no heated courtroom debates between Phoenix and Edgeworth, this game does not lose that fighting spirit. It's definitely a game fans of the series would not want to miss!
As an Ace Attorney fan, I got this game as soon as possible after obtaining a Nintendo DS. At the time, my favourite character was Miles Edgeworth, so I was pumped to find out there was a game with him as the star. However, while the overall concept of the game took a different direction from the standard AA games, it had lots of ups and downs and left me with mixed feelings.
I think it's fantastic how they gave Edgeworth a more investigative role, but since that's supposed to be Detective Gumshoe's job, it essentially left the poor detective in a role little more than a pet dog following his master around. When Kay Faraday was introduced, I was extremely disappointed, as it seemed as though she was trying way too hard to be another Maya Fey. And Ema Skye already proved that to be a terrible idea (and I don't like Ema or Maya), so Edgeworth got an unnecessary, annoying sidekick... aside from Gumshoe.
Some of the other new characters were more interesting, like Shi-Long Lang and Detective Badd, and certain cameos had me cracking up for a long time. The cases were all interesting in their own right, especially given how most of the action was performed through full-body sprites moving around the bottom screen, rather than just scrolling through visual novel-style text like the other AA games. However, the fifth case dragged on and on, never seeming to end, although it honestly should have after the first or second round of questioning. Normally I'm a huge fan of the AA series' soundtrack, but this game's music was mostly annoying, which surprised and disappointed me.
Overall I think it's a fun game, and an interesting change of pace from the typical Ace Attorney games, but unless you're out to play/collect all the AA games, it's kinda of up in the air on whether or not one should buy this game. I'd recommend trying out the other AA games first before playing this one, and hope someday Capcom USA localises AAI2 since that one looks far more intriguing than its predecessor.
Before I bought the game, I was thinking it would be a uninteresting copy of the main series, with just a few changes here and there trying to make it feel new.
After I played, though, I regret I didn't buy it right when it was released.
The game is so fantastic that it is even hard to think of some faulty aspect to point:
- The story is great. It is as cohese as it was in Trials and Tribulations, but with cases that are as interesting as the ones on the original Phoenix Wright.
- The graphics are also wonderful. They are way better than in the main series (including Apollo Justice), and the animations also seem more natural.
- The music keeps the right tracks, and brings new ones that are also remarkable.
In a nutshell, it is a game that is totally worth your time and money. Its quality equals with the Phoenix Wright titles and is far superior to Apollo Justice.
I love this game- it is one of the best of the AA series besides Trials and Tribulations. The investigation portion of this game almost rivals the courtroom of the previous AA games as well. The characters of this game come back again from previous AA games, and other new characters show up to really make this a new game. I highly recommened this game.
A refreshing twist on the awesome Ace Attorney series of video games. You take control of prosecutor Miles Edgeworth as you play through 5 exciting cases. Instead of taking place in the courtroom, the game takes place in and around various crime scenes, as you investigate areas to collect evidence to prove people guilty. You will run into some familar faces along the way including bumbling dectective Dick Gumshoe. I highly recommend this game!! It is a better game that all of the other Ace Attorney games in my opinion!!
