Featured Game - Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney (DS)
Name: Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney (Nintendo DS)
Format: Nintendo DS
With the recent release of Miles Edgeworth Investigations, It seems like a good time to take a look back at the game that started the series. Phoenix Wright Ace Attorney was originally released for the GBA, but with an added chapter and updated graphics and sound, it became an early hit on the DS.
Phoenix "Nick" Wright is a trainee defense attorney, who we join at the start of his first case. Under the tutelage of Mia Fey, he has to defend a series of murder cases against Miles Edgeworth a prosecutor with a perfect record and an old rival of Phoenix. Through the course of the game we watch Phoenix develop from a rookie into an experienced attorney with his own assistant, who has to unravel past cases to resolve the mystery behind his mentor - and his opponent.
Gameplay-wise, this is the game that resulted in the classic cry of "Objection!" from a generation of gamers.
