Critic Reviews for Apollo Justice: Ace Attorney

For those that have never tried this fourth Ace Attorney game, there is no reason not to pick up Apollo Justice. The riveting story is much more serious and emotional, the cases will shock and surprise you, and the soundtrack and cast of characters new and old are absolutely unforgettable.

Nine years old and still Apollo Justice: Ace Attorney looks as great as ever.

If you've been struggling to get an original copy to finish your collection, then this remaster will answer your prayers, but it's hard to recommend Apollo Justice for any other reason.

This rerelease of Apollo Justice: Ace Attorney is an interesting one because it doesn't really do anything that we didn't see when it originally came out 10 years ago, but that's not necessarily a bad thing. Rather than of a rebuilt game with shiny bells and whistles that clutter up the core experience, we're instead treaded to a faithful rendition with updated visuals for a modern console generation. It's the easiest way to experience the game if you haven't before, and it's a great way to pay it another visit if you have. As its lifecycle crawls to a close, the Nintendo 3DS has become somewhat of an archive, collecting franchise favorites and housing them all in one place. With the rest of the mainline Ace Attorney series already available on the 3DS eShop, it was just a matter of time before Apollo Justice had his day in court.

8 / 10.0

Apollo Justice for the 3DS isn't leaps and bounds better than the original with only a handful of meaningful updates to justify its re-release, but it stands as the definitive way to experience the classic misadventures of Apollo and Trucy.

Apollo Justice: Ace Attorney a great remastered version of the original DS title and offers some few but great additions that make it feel like a more full package. That said and aside from the obvious graphic improvement the game is, for better or worse, the same title that many remember from 10 years ago.
