I'm back with another Ace Attorney review. This will also be my last Ace Attorney review until I play a new Ace Attorney game. For now, I'm going to review Miles Edgeworth: Ace Attorney Investigations.
I played Apollo Justice Ace Attorney, I had lost some of my hope for
the series. I regained said hope playing Ace Attorney Investigations (
Called Gyakuten Kenji meaning Turnabout Prosecutor in Japanese). This
maybe considered a spinoff game since It's story never interacts with
the main story line. The protagonist of this game is Miles Edgeworth.
game is a lot different from the other games game-play wise. I was
kinda disappointed that I can't actually prosecute in court. Here we
investigate crime scene and gather evidence. We use said evidence to

I didn't really notice any major flaws in this game
except one. That flaw is that the characters weren't well-developed. Kay
is potentially the equivalent of Maya or Trucy to Edgeworth but only
appears in 3 of the 5 cases. This normally wouldn't be a problem (Maya
was also in 3 of the 5 cases in the first game), but she was hardly
given any development at all. All we know about Kay is, she looks up to
her father, her father died, she wants to reveal the truth (in any
Overall I'd say It's way better than Apollo Justice Ace Attorney but it may be on the same level as Justice for All.
I rate this game: 70/100
