I was first introduced to the Ace Attorney series about 3 years ago. I had heard about the series but for some reason did not really have any interest in playing it. That changed when I played the first game in the series Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney for the Nintendo DS. I fell in love with the writing, artwork, and especially the music.
Here are some of the reasons that the series is worth your time.
1. The cast of characters is fantastic.
From Phoenix to Maya, the cast of characters in the series is quirky and great. And most of them have huge roles in the series.
2. The music is superb.
Another aspect that the Ace Attorney series is known for is its amazing music. The series started out on the Game Boy Advance, so the music started out pretty basic, but still great. My favorite track follows.
3. Continuing plot in games
The games often carry plot points from earlier games and often try to culminate them in a series of twists and turns. I appreciate what the series tries to do in making a big spectacle of past plot devices.
