arkrex says: "What would the world be like without lawyers? An inhospitable wasteland full of creeps? Or an amicable society free of backstabbing SOBs? Either way, everyone knows that you can't live them, nor can you live without them. "

galactus21 says: "As a child, adults would commonly ask about a childís aspirations in life. Certainly, nobody would answer that they aspire to be a garbage disposer or a manager at a local fast food chain. Most answers would consist of being lawyers, doctors, psychologists, etc. Unfortunately, as children grow up their lack of effort in school also diminishes.

sashanan says: "It is completely linear, it involves a lot of reading, it has an annoying bit here and there where you're wondering how to convince the story to move along, and once you've finished it, any replay will be precisely the same...and I'm still absolutely in love with it. "

woodhouse says: "Throw out every rule and procedure of the criminal justice system. Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney is a clever DS graphic adventure that forgoes the tedium of writs, motions, and the chain of evidence in favor of timely investigations and more expedient trials. Proceedings here are limited to three days, juries are nonexistent, and the accused is always presumed guilty. All that stands along a defendantís path to a life sentence are a bloodthirsty prosecutor, an addlebrained judge, a handf..."
