Game: Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney: Trials and Tribulations Click for more info

How many colons are you allowed to have in a single title anyway?

The third in the lawyer simulation game series, Trails and Tribulations doesn't seem to add much to Justice For All (and a review of the first Phoenix Wright game can be found here). The main difference is that, for the first case at least, you don't play Phoenix himself, but this change in protagonist doesn't affect the sublime gameplay.

Perhaps I'm too early in the game to have seen any new gameplay elements, but to be frank I don't care if it's more of the same. As with the other two games, the fun is in watching the story unfold; everything else is just a way of making that happen. Visuals, sounds and controls are all pretty much identical to what was seen before, so this really is more content rather than a new game.

With news that the fourth game (already released in Japan, exclusively for the DS) leaves behind Phoenix altogether, T&T does mark a natural end to this story arc at least. On the other hand, it's good to know that there's more OBJECTION! action left for us to consume, even after this, the latest episode, is over and done with.
