Not all of its design choices may be consistently tasteful, but Aviary Attorney tells a good story to the end, paying attention to a lot of the finer details for a cohesive and entertaining whole. Where it does not succeed is in its courtroom happenings. While the game can hold its own, they're not the standout moments they could have been. Further, its narrative could definitely have benefited from further development for a fuller experience. These characters do grow on you and it's clear that much care went into creating a regal-yet-lighthearted atmosphere that players would grow accustomed to. Because of that, it's dissatisfying to have things end sooner than they need to. Its humour and storytelling will be appreciated for their value as individual elements, but these touches don't bring the overall experience to the highs it was creatively meant to achieve with greater support, ultimately making Aviary Attorney a pleasant mystery but a restrained one.

Stunningly presented and very well written, Aviary Attorney is a light hearted court drama with great panache and terrible puns.

Aviary Attorney may not make any new fans in the legal investigation genre, but those who already like that sort of game should be well pleased with Sketchy Logic's debut.

Aviary Attorney could've quite easily been a birdbrained game built solely to ruffled some of Capcom's feathers.

Aviary Attorney is a vision to behold, genuinely funny at times (assuming you enjoy a good pun) and has a solid backbone of mechanics.

More rich quail rather than plump-breasted pheasant, but still a rare and satisfying bird.

To criticize Aviary Attorney, the more literal Phoenix Wright, means to launch off a criticism of Ace Attorney, as this game manages to weave around those trappings while stumbling into newer, comparable ones.

Despite a buggy and somewhat incomplete experience, Aviary Attorney is a unique game that boasts the funniest script seen for quite some time.

Aviary Attorney might look like nothing more than a silly riff on Ace Attorney, but thankfully, there's a lot more to it than that. The era-appropriate illustrations and music set the perfect atmosphere, while the short cases with multiple endings provide a great incentive to jump back in and shoot for happier resolutions. Aviary Attorney doesn't quite hit the heights of Capcom's own series, but it's still a fine way to kill an afternoon.

Despite the holidays, Sketchy Logic put out one patch incredibly quickly, but it's safe to say my experience playing Aviary Attorney simply didn't set my heart aflutter. Instead, it might just have broken it.
