Product Overview

Ace Attorney Investigations: Miles Edgeworth takes the Ace Attorney series from the courtroom to the crime scene, leaving the legal battle behind while bringing the action to various crime scenes. This time around, the player takes on the role of famed prosecutor Miles Edgeworth, a memorable rival of charismatic legal eagle Phoenix Wright. Edgeworth actively investigates crime scenes in order to pursue the truth behind each case. By solving the challenging puzzles presented him, Edgeworth will work with the police to bring criminals to justice. Users will be able to directly control the character avatar’s movement on the scene with the arrow key or touch screen and investigate the crime scenes freely. If, during the course of an investigation, users find contradictions, they will be able to obtain new information by presenting decisive evidence. In some cases, users will identify clues and conduct examinations of material witnesses. On these occasions, users will have to uncover the truth behind the crimes using collected information, the evidence, and logic.

Review The Ace Attorney series is back with more of the same for the Nintendo DS...OBJECTION!!...Alright, alright. Ace Attorney is back, and while there are many familiar elements, this latest addition is a bit different...For starters, you don't play as series regular Phoenix Wright. Instead, you'll be taking the shoes of his rival, prosecutor Miles Edgeworth. You won't be stuck in the courtroom trying cases, either. You work crime scenes and interrogate suspects in the field. It's like CSI, except it uses real science like an "information reproduction" device that recreates the crime scene so you can investigate what happened when you weren't even around...Don't worry, even though the newest Ace Attorney takes place outside the courtroom, there's still plenty of exaggerated finger pointing, wacky characters, bizarre crimes and stupendous leaps of logic to satisfy fans. When investigating a kidnapping and murder in a theme park, one of the mascots wanders the park wielding a gun as part of his costume. You know, for the kids. And while trying to clear Miles' name of murder on a flight back from a fictitious country, you'll have to argue with a man who speaks in that weird symbol font no one ever has a use for in Microsoft Word. It's good to have Ace Attorney back in fine form...Each of the five episodes focuses on a different crime, though all of them tie together in unexpected ways, creating an overarching story. You'll learn all about Miles Edgeworth's past, solving one of his older cases in a flashback and trying some new challenges. The stories are strange, far-fetched and have giant plot holes. In other words, they're great. Even though my brain was shouting, "HOLD IT!" at the suspect logic of the crimes, I couldn't help but be curious about how everything turned out...The new investigation aspects of Miles Edgeworth add some variety to the gameplay and the story is interesting even if it sometimes plays out like a bad soap opera. Still, I can't ignore the numerous times I was stumped not because I couldn't figure out the next logical step, but because there was no next "logical" step...The Ace Attorney series has never reached a true level of excellence. While there are some really strong elements added for Miles Edgeworth, the core is still trial-and-error gameplay. Some of the logic left me scratching my head and it's entirely too linear. Fans of the Ace Attorney series will like it, no doubt about that, but there's also no denying that the series is running out of steam.
