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.

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.

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.

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.

I can't say that my time with Apollo Justice has been a fantastic intro to the series, but I'm glad I did finally jump in.

The writing is captivating, and the visual updates appreciated. It's satisfying to finish, yet I was also a bit sad to see the credits roll.

Apollo Justice: Ace Attorney is still a great game eleven years after its original release. This porting, homewever, feels incredibly lazy due to the little difference in comparison to the original release. This, along with the questionable price tag, makes this remastered not so easy to recommend.
