Phoenix Wright  
I seriously doubted and avoided this game for a long time since I didn't understand the hype - mostly because I

1) dislike court sessions - they're often very boring and unnecessary
2) don't like most text games, Japanese especially - dating sims have given me a bad taste

but holy SHIT is Phoenix Wright entertaining. It's amazingly well-written. All of the characters are deep and believable. It's so amazingly gripping. You get such a feeling of victory (and defeat) at times that it leaves you giggling or flabbergasted.

Highly, highly recommended. There is no reason not to give this game a go. (uhh even if you don't have a DS!) Buyit buyit buyit

Well duh.

If you're interested, there's a community. Full of fanart and stuff. I posted about a Steel Samurai Ringtone midi that I made sometime ago.

Glad you enjoyed it. Have you already beaten it?
Jeffrey Carl Fadenjeffreyatw on August 24th, 2006 03:22 pm (UTC)
Nope. Just beat Turnabout Sisters, so I've got some playin' ahead of me!

Don't give up. Case 1-4 are ported from the GBA. Case 5 is entirely new. It's the best case out of all of them. And I think it's like as long as the other 4 combined, or maybe a little less.

Yeah that's what I heard. I hear it uses the DS functionality a whole lot more. Looking forward to it!

It's like Perry Mason on crack. I enjoyed it even more once I realised I could play it in English. :/

Interesting so they made it for the GBA? Cause I have one of those. I played the ds version a few days ago and since then I've really been wanting a DS ;_;

Nah, it was originally a GBA game in 2001, but it was only released in Japan (read: in Japanese). It's only available in America as a DS game.

Do you have a ROM and emulator???? =D
Jeffrey Carl Faden: WAIWAI230jeffreyatw on August 25th, 2006 03:37 pm (UTC)
DS emulators are pretty crappy as of yet.

And seriously DS's are worth buying. There's just too many good games for 'em.

Games I got:

Mario Kart DS
New Super Mario Bros.
Brain Age
Tetris DS
Sonic Rush which i am returning
Phoenix Wright

The only DS game I have so far, and I've seriously considered getting each of the games you listed. I was apprehensive about Phoenix Wright too because I thought it'd be boring, but since it made you a believer I may be picking it up next.

Curious, though, what's wrong with Sonic Rush?
Matt: Azumanga Baka!whitenoise on September 8th, 2006 06:49 pm (UTC)
Er, the only DS game I have so far is NSMB. Left that part out, somehow.
Jeffrey Carl Fadenjeffreyatw on September 8th, 2006 06:53 pm (UTC)
Sonic Rush is so difficult that it's cheap. The bosses are ridiculous. In fact, I'm stuck at one and have tried about 30 times and at that point I just put it down and went to different titles. There are also parts where you need to do confusing but specific button combos to get to areas which are JUST out of reach, and that takes about a million times too.

And like the Sonic Advance titles, the levels are very poorly designed. A lot of pits in high-speed areas.

I will take this glowing review into consideration and look for it for purchase in the stores I frequent!
