My least favorite. The second case is really uninteresting because the game spoil eveything itself. And the final case isn’t the best final case in the series.70Jofe
No EU 5 Text (3DS/PS4) = for me automatic 0 Points! In this Game you must understand ALL!0Loxagon
As a Phoenix Wright series fan, I think the story is a little bit bored. However, I still have fun with playing it.60tianyujojo
