Courtroom is in Session: Phoenix Wright Trilogy 3DS Review

Courtroom is in Session Phoenix Wright Trilogy 3DS Review
Phoenix Wright series has been around ever since the early 90s, but it gains its recognition from the remake of the game in Nintendo DS platform. This game is considered as one of the classics and provide inspirations for so many games later on to indulge the player with the neat combination of murder mysteries and visual novels. In a nutshell, one can basically say that Phoenix Wright series is actually a lawyer simulator, in which the players get to play the role of Phoenix Wright, the titular protagonist of the series. Wright is a young attorney who is full of passions and ambitions, he became involved with the work of law since he was following the track of his childhood friend, Miles Edgeworth who became a prosecutor. Wright and Edgeworth have not been in contact for so long and in the courtroom, they finally met as rivals. The story basically revolves around Wright’s experience in the courtroom, as well as several murder cases that might be entwined with each other. With the risk of his client being sent to the jail and the truth lost forever, the young attorney must try his hardest to solve the crime and bring the truth to light in the courtroom.
The Basic
Like any other visual novel, this game revolves around dialogue and narrations. But wait, there’s more. The game also features various investigation as well as puzzle-solving segments that come with each cases. With intriguing plot, charming dialogue, and overall loveable characters, this game is good to occupy someone for a long span of time. Ace Attorney has set an irresistible trend amongst so many other visual novel games. But as a classic, this game has not lost its appeal even after a long time. It is originally a Gameboy Advance game before it gets a better, localized remake in Nintendo DS. As the original trilogy of Ace Attorney is a big success, the developers decided to bundle all the series together and gave it a better adaptation in the 3DS version. Several changes are made, but not major. The storyline is as crisp and intriguing as always, and the epic courtroom battle is as epic as always. The gameplay is as amazing as ever with its investigation, cross-examination, as well as puzzles. Solving the crime and finding the true culprit can be a challenging challenge to try, but the real battle starts in the courtroom where the witnesses can be either your greatest friend or worst enemies. It combines many intriguing elements important to build suspense; mysteries, clues, as well as the need for deductions.
The Review
This trilogy is definitely something worth playing, and I would recommend it even to people who does not really like visual novel genre all that much. With the unique cast of characters and fresh storyline, Phoenix Wright series have a certain appeal which hard to be resisted even by the people who are not really into visual novel genre. However, like any other game, it also has perks and downs. As a whole series, the game is good and each of the instalment is something worth playing. However, it does have its low-moment from time to time, particularly in the second series Phoenix Wright: Justice for All who is not as amusing or engaging as the first game and the third one. But when it is viewed as a whole though, this game is a really exciting classic which I wouldn’t mind recommending to many people, even non-gamers. I give this game 4.5 out of 5 rating.

999: Between Nonary Game, Survival, and Human Psychology

999 Between Nonary Game, Survival, and Human Psychology
For gamers who found that visual novels to be appealing, then 999 is something which I would recommend for those whose choice of drugs revolve around appealing narrations, characters, and storyline. The platform of Nintendo DS has so much of good visual novel games such as Hotel Dusk and Ace Attorney. But for those who prefer a much edgier look in this type of genre, then this game is definitely something worth trying. 999: Nine Hours, Nine Persons, Nine doors is a game developed by Spike Chunsoft, which is quite famous for Danganronpa series. This game takes sci-fi and human psychology up to the next level. Over the course of the game, players would be presented with various puzzles that need to be solved in order to find the truth behind the Nonary game, a bizarre experiment conducted by someone who claimed his name as “Zero”. Junpei the protagonist was trapped inside a confined ship along with other eight people. Each of them claimed that they know nothing about what is happening and when they woke up, they are already confined in the ship. Each of them is given a wrist-watch (or a bracelet) with only one number to represent them all. From one till nine, each individual is marked with numbers. Here’s a catch though, if they ever break the rules set beforehand in the game, their watch would detonate and end their heart beating. Their objective is to survive and find the door which marked with “9” on it.
The Basic
As you can see, this game is a puzzle-solving game filled with various riddles and conundrums which can get your mind working for hours and hours of gameplay. The puzzle are varying from door to door and the mysteries thicken as the story progresses. Just like any other visual novel, the outcome of this game will depend on the choices of the player. Some choices may lead you to bad end, and some are necessary to be chosen in order to reach the true end. There are multiple possible endings and it was nerve-wrecking from time to time. The dark, heavy atmosphere of the game adds up to the suspense building up from the story. The puzzle can be quite confusing at times, but that’s what makes this game even more exciting from start to finish.
The Review
Plot twists are to be expected. But to be honest, I found that the ending, while brilliant, is lacking something. Maybe it’s just too mind-blowing and odd for my taste, so I would sometimes reluctant to recommend this game even to the most hard-core lover of visual novels. Nonetheless, it is a wonderful game packed with nice plot twists as well as powerful devices. It brings out the trick that may deceive the human’s psychology and give quite a memorable impact on it. Storyline-wise, I must say that the game has strong narration and an overall brilliant plot. However, it is also the downside of the game I think, because sometimes the narrations are too long and that the story itself can be considered as a major oddball, which may not up to the taste of everyone. As for the illustration though, I must say that it’s quite good. The characters have anti-mainstream vibe to each of them and the sound effects in the game is good enough to provide a much more intense gaming experience. I give this game 4 out of 5 rating.

Super Danganronpa 2: A Heart-thumping Gaming Experience!

Super Danganronpa 2 A Heart-thumping Gaming Experience!
As a game, Danganronpa 1 was good, but as an anime, well, not so much. Unfortunately, it seems there are quite many people who heard of the anime first than the game. As much as the anime adaption made a decent (could be better) depiction of what the whole plot of the game was all about, but to be honest, it does not enough to capture the essence of the game; what makes the game itself awesome. As much as I’d like to blabber more about the first game though, this article will discuss and review about the successor of the first series: Super Danganronpa 2: Goodbye Despair. It is common to find many awesome games to be extremely brilliant at the start of the series, but declining in quality later on. As a fan of Danganronpa: Trigger Happy Havoc, I must say that I’m glad it didn’t turn out like that at all. The second game was so much more than I could ever expected; it was a mind-blowingly amazing masterpiece. If you are someone who heard the name of Danganronpa franchise only from the anime adaptation, don’t let the anime fool you, because the next series in-line of Spike Chunsoft’s masterpiece “Danganronpa” has one of the best plots and writings that you will ever see in the history of video games.
The Basic
Super Danganronpa 2, like its predecessor, was developed by Spike Chunsoft, which known for its thriller and puzzle-solving games. The Japanese version was first released in the Playstation Portable platform, and the recent English localization was released in the Playstation Vita platform. Still retaining its charm of Visual Novel-format, Super Danganronpa 2 excels in many aspects such as storyline and characters. I can even say that the plot of the second installation is much more brilliant than the first one, because it is in a way provide some insight on loose-ends from the first game, as well as introducing more about what actually happened in Danganronpa universe. This game provides multiple puzzle-solving segments as one of its main elements. It still has that Ace-Attorney investigation format and the school trial is improved to be much more intense in this second installation. You’ll play as Hajime Hinata, an amnesiac protagonist who woke up in a secluded island with other fifteen students. A rabbit mascot called Usami said that they are supposed to get along and spend their school trip having fun in the island. However, things don’t go well there (of course, as expected), since the evil bear mascot in the previous game, Monokuma is back to sabotage the field trip and demand the students to kill each other if they want to leave the island. Can you feel the heart-thumping suspense yet? No? Then you should give the game a try because things will get even crazier from that point.
The Review
Even though the concept of “survival game” is one of the most overused tropes in many fictional works, but Super Danganronpa 2 does not disappoint with its brilliant story-telling, memorably unique characters, as well as plot twists. The downside of the game is that it can be heavy on the narration and the dialogue sometimes, and might not be the genre that will fit everyone’s taste. For gamers who love action-packed games, I wouldn’t recommend this one. But for those who don’t mind reading lengthy wall of text and hours of solving puzzle, this game is the dope that you seek. You know what else rhymes with “dope”? Hope. And that’s what this game offers you; plenty of dope and hope. No seriously, this game is awesome. I give it 4.5 out of 5.

That’s the Spirit! Ghost Trick: Phantom Detective

That’s the Spirit! Ghost Trick Phantom Detective
Ghost Trick is a simple game full of wonders and tricks. Like the ghost itself, the name might be so obscure that there are so few people who actually recognize what’s this game all about. Many people are surprised when they found out about this game, and even more surprised when they actually get to play it, including myself to be honest. However, it is the kind of surprise that you’ll get when you expect to find an iron but found a gold instead – it’s pleasantly surprising and intriguing. As an RPG game filled with puzzle-solving segments and intriguing plot filled with unique characters, this game is addicting enough for those whose choice of drug is visual-novel RPG. When I played this game, I literally spent whole days just to get to the next stage and unravel the mystery that has been introduced since the beginning of the plot. This game brilliantly combined concepts of suspense and comedy very well. Not to mention, it also has the sci-fi elements blended perfectly with its otherwise supernatural premise. I don’t know about others, but I must say that it’s sad this game gets so little love for its amazing effort and perfection in so many things.
The Basic
The gameplay of Ghost trick is a side-scrolling, 2D puzzle game which basically the thing that must be solved in each chapter of the game. In order to unravel the mystery and get to the next stage, the player should be able to finish every puzzle given within time limits and reach the objective listed in the story. The graphic can be quite misleading to some people because it might not be the best in the world. But when it is seen in the perspective of the story and the vibe, I must say that even the graphics are actually fitting to the whole atmosphere. With eccentric character designs and an overall comic-style drawing for each of the sprites, I must say that even if the illustration itself is actually one of the strong points of Capcom’s Ghost Trick: Phantom Detective.
That, combined with mind-blowing, witty plot are the deadly combination that really got me. The gameplay is actually not very hard and the instruction in the game is pretty clear. You’ll play as Sissel, a dead man’s spirit who somehow has gotten himself involved between the strings of unsolved cases started from 10 years ago. Sissel, having awoken as a ghost, he sees his dead body lying in the dumpster, and then he realized that he got no memories whatsoever about him being dead and his true identity aside from his name. He then met a talking lamp which will explain about what he must do in order to regain his memories back as well as to unravel the truth behind the unsolved case that ties many people’s fate. He got only one night to explore everything and get to the truth, because in the morning his soul will disappear without a trace. Every ghost has special power, and Sissel’s power lies in the manipulation of inanimate objects, in which he had to try his best to alter people’s death and fate during the whole night in order to piece everything together. Sounds ridiculous? I don’t think so, mind-blowing? Yes, and this is only the start. When you get to immerse yourself in the game, you will find that every last bit of this game totally deserve all the love a visual novel game deserves to get.
The Review
The only downside of this game is that this genre is definitely not for gamers who love past-faced, action-filled game. The narration of Ghost Trick, albeit being its main strongest point, also its downside since it is so long and not many people appreciate reading a wall of text. So I wouldn’t recommend this game to people who prefer more action in their video games. But for those who love visual novel genre though, then this game might be the one for you. Speaking from the perspective of plot-wise, characters-wise, concept-wise, and even the little nitty-gritty such as illustration and the music, this game is a definite hidden, precious jewel. I give this game 4.5 out of 5.
