This time I’m going to review a fan-fic called “Turnabout Storm” It’s like a cross over between Ace Attorney and MLP:FiM. I haven’t really watched MLP. All I know about the show is from watching reviews by The Mysterious Mr. Enter on youtube. It’s a fan made video that’s like 7 hours long. I’m going to avoid spoilers as much as possible for this review.
This puts our hero, Phoenix Wright (they portrayed his
character better than the AA movie) in the candy-coloured world of
Equestria. Twilight... (Crap! I forgot her last name.) Uh…Twilight casts
a spell to summon the greatest defense attorney. This happens to be
Phoenix. We find that a horse was murdered and Twilights friend
Rainbowdash was arrested as the killer. Phoenix has to defend her in
I really don’t know how well this fits in with the MLP
universe but I’m definitely sure that it fits Ace Attorney more. Why?
Besides the fact that there was a murder and someone will be executed
for it in a world of rainbows, sunshine and candy-coloured ponies, This
entire fan-fic is set in Ace Attorney format. Investigations and the
court scenes are just the way they were in the game.
I’ll start by
pointing out the faults before I address the all the stuff done right
simply because the number of faults are very few when compared to all
the points they nailed. The huge glaring fault is the simple fact that
the whole thing is 7 hours long. Personally, I’d prefer it if it didn’t
have ponies and griffons and had actual people. However that isn’t
really such a bad thing. I mean, if ponies were so bad, why would there
be so many bronies around.
This has a healthy dose of comedy and a
huge mystery that rivals those in the Ace Attorney games. Hell, I
wouldn’t mind if this was actually a cross over game. One thing I would
like to tell the makers “Hey, great job. But I think it’d be better if
you divided the whole thing into 20 min videos. You’d end up with 21
episodes. It’ll be like your own anime.”
I really didn’t notice the
music much since I was too focused on the dialogue. But I think most of
the music tracks used here were from the game.
It's pact with
suspense and great story telling just like in the game. It's got a lot
of great moments that will keep you (and everyone else) guessing.
it for this review. It was so short because I didn’t want to spoil
anything. It’s a pretty good fan-fic. I’d recommend watching this. It’s
better to watch this if you either watched MLP or played Ace Attorney.
If you’ve done both, then you’ll love this. You can find all 5 parts on
I rate this: 80/100
Thanks for reading.
