Apollo Justice: Ace Attorney for Nintendo DS
Fourth in the Ace Attorney series, this adventure game has Apollo Justice, a rising attorney as the hero. He replaces Pheonix Wright as protagonist.This adventure video game rests on collection of evidence and approaching a witness in court with it. Every game contains four or five cases that are connected in some fashion.
The cases have two phases namely, the investigation, where evidence is collected and witnesses interviewed as well as, the courtroom where witnesses provide testimonies. These can then be cross examined to prove falsehood. Through a psyche lock system the Defense Attorney extracts information even from uncooperative witnesses. The game ends when the defendant is held "Not Guilty". The special feature is that the whole game can be played using a stylus. Yes! You heard right. Also, through animated narration of sequences one can understand the manner in which a crime occurred.
The new game also utilises Ema (detective friend)'s examining devices that add a new dimension to interaction in the game. All in all it is enjoyable experience that uses the same formula of earlier game versions but with flourish.
