Top Critic Average
Phoenix Wright Trilogy showcases three of the most accessible and fun visual novels available. Featuring witty writing and a delightful cast of characters, the Ace Attorney series captures a great blend of light and dark shades in its storytelling.
These three games are all enjoyable and memorable experiences, with their bright cast of characters and delightful humor coupled with engaging and satisfying gameplay. These games are perfect for the player that enjoys character-driven stories in games or games that focus on problem-solving and critical thinking rather than skill.
Hopefully this is just the start, with similar quality releases of the latter three games and hopefully a further sequel yet to come following this. Rest assured – these are a fantastic way to revisit familiar adventures for existing fans and a must-play in the genre for everybody else. At last, they’ve got a current release definitively worth bothering with.
Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney Trilogy can't stand up to the likes of major "AAA" blockbusters, but it offers tremendous enjoyment and satisfaction. If you haven't played these games before, now's the time to pick them up.
The transition from portable devices to consoles hasn't hurt the quality of the Ace Attorney Trilogy, which remain some of my favorite games of all time. Phoenix Wright and company are deserving of the big screen, and this game is well worth your time if you haven't gotten around to playing it elsewhere.
Overall The Ace Attorney Trilogy is a welcome addition to anyone who likes point and click games or mystery solvers. Its anime influence is heavy but looks great.
The Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney Trilogy is a polished version of an already almost perfect trilogy filled with more quirky characters and complex murder plots than you can fit in a courtroom.
The Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney Trilogy Remaster is an essential purchase to fans of the series and those who like Investigative Visual Novels. Sure, the game has simply received a new coat of paint over it’s pixelated 4:3 ratio grandfather, but the game looks and feels like something you would expect to see release in 2019 as a new product. I would have liked it if the images and certain characters had greater detail upon them, and less of a filter-like overlay, but that’s just me being picky, the game looks amazing in comparison to the original.
It's been a long time since the original Phoenix Wright games released so this is the perfect excuse to play through them again and re-experience the thrill of each case.
A stunning remaster of one of the greatest game trilogies of all time. Whether you've played them before or just want to relive the magic, this is definitely worth picking up.
undefined.Ace Attorney remains one of my favorite franchises of all time, and I have loved the opportunity to play through the trilogy again on Switch. Though it lags a little in the middle with some less-than-stellar cases in the second game, the Ace Attorney Trilogy is still an incredible story with wonderful characters, memorable plots, and satisfying mysteries to solve. With little more than a new coat of paint, the Trilogy collection manages to be the perfect way to experience the story of Phoenix Wright whether you're a rookie lawyer or a great ace attorney.
A classic that hasn't had its brilliance diminished by time, brimming with colorful characters and memorable moments, and a presentation that is still visually and aurally attractive.

Even if you’ve already played the first three Ace Attorney games, Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney Trilogy offers the opportunity to experience all those legal shenanigans on the big screen. And if you’ve never seen Phoenix Wright bluff his way to victory, it’d be criminal to miss out.
Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney Trilogy is a package that offers three games with engaging stories, unbelievable twists and extremely charismatic characters. These three games are completely mandatory. However, while the graphics have been very well remastered, the sounds are outdated. The lack of support for Brazilian Portuguese is also sad. Also, the price is a bit high for the collection.

Despite a few quibbles that most new players won’t even notice, Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney Trilogy is an impressive remastering of three of the greatest adventure games ever made.
Of course, for those who have experienced the trilogy on it’s original platform, you aren’t necessarily getting anything new here, however, if you are a hardcore fan of the series, you’re definitely getting a well deserved upgrade. The ability to play all three titles on your TV, or even with upgraded graphics on the Nintendo Switch, makes this the perfect replacement.
Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney Trilogy is a satisfying collection of mysteries, many of which are still as sharp as when they were first published. Sure, certain aspects of these games feel a touch dated compared to some of the newer, edgier visual novels out there, but few can top Phoenix and friends when it comes to charm. This HD update is a bit barebones, but, overall, these classics are well-represented.
Despite feeling that this was a bit of a missed opportunity, the Phoenix Wright Trilogy on the Switch has now become my recommended way to experience this classic story thanks to its various quality of life updates and solid price point.
Ace Attorney is the series that started it all, mixing traditional visual novels with a courtroom drama that offers new twists in the story keeping you in complete suspense. Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney Trilogy suffers from some minor blemishes like the new artwork or revamped controls, but it is still the best way to experience the trilogy on modern platforms.
A confident revamp of Phoenix Wright's earliest legal adventures, the Ace Attorney Trilogy is a cleverly constructed hybrid of logical conundrums and visual novel beats that combine to make one of the most accessible and gleefully silly puzzlers the PS4 has seen in quite sometime.
Overall, Ace Attorney Trilogy wholeheartedly proves its worth as a remaster. The story still stands up today and balances goofiness and sincerity in a fun and enchanting way. The gameplay is slow but wins over its audience. The graphics are heavily improved from its myriad predecessors, and the music is brought to life in just the right way. Sure, there are some slight slip-ups here and there, but this game is a gem that's worth playing from the pantheon of games, especially those in the visual novel genre. At this time, the defense rests.
Even after a decade, these classics have plenty of charm. Between fantastic storytelling, well-written dialogue and engaging courtroom mechanics, it makes them a must for fans of visual novels or engaging experiences. Despite not offering new content, there is still more than enough to play. However, returning fans might find them a bit on the easy side and might want to consider skipping this release, unless you want to reexperience Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney in glorious HD.
Three games that are as fresh and clever as the first time they released on the GBA. Theres barely any improvement, and we lament the absence of a spanish translation, but it is difficult to make an "objection" giving the three games are finally releasing on every platform.

Now built for consoles rather than exclusively as a handheld title, Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney Trilogy still maintains the same charm and gameplay the series has always been known for over the years while looking cleaner than ever.
Phoenix Wright has finally made his debut on a PlayStation console in the form of the Ace Attorney Trilogy, and you'll have absolutely no objections from us. This collection of three brilliant games is well worth the attention of adventure game fans, visual novel aficionados, or budding lawyers. The mind-bending, labyrinthine murder plots are far-fetched but engaging, the writing is consistently pithy and amusing, and the characters you'll meet are charming and unique. It's an open and shut case – Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney Trilogy rocks.
It'll take you through captivating mysteries that have plenty of twists while still leaving you satisfied that you solved the crime rather than being drug through to the end. It'll let you pretend to be an attorney and find the gaps in testimony that reveal the true story. Most of all, it'll be an experience you won't find anywhere else.
The original Ace Attorney is – dare we say it – almost 20 years old, which is remarkable when you consider just how well it holds up 2019. Sure, it's been ported plenty of times and the jump to Nintendo DS certainly helped shake off the retro cobwebs, but as a piece of interactive history, Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney Trilogy is as utterly addictive and truly rewarding as it was back at the turn of the millennium. Whether you're brand new to the world of virtual defence law or a veteran attorney, Phoenix Wright's first adventures are still a fine set of cases to undertake.
20 years after its first release, the Ace Attorney series reminds us how strong and unpredictable Shu Takumi's writing feels. With those linked three episodes, there is no reason not to enter the courtroom once again, even though Capcom could frankly have worked on some tiny options and bonuses to please the fans of old Nick.

Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney Trilogy is a great package that includes the HD versions of the first three games of the Ace Attorney series. If you haven't played any of them or you missed one, its a great opportunity to give a try. On the other hand and if you are a veteran fan, you will enjoy it a lot too, even though it doesn't offer anything new at all.

If you’ve never had the opportunity to indulge in one of this brand’s prior incarnations, Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney Trilogy is a fantastic chance to explore your inner gumshoe
Hold it! The original Ace Attorney hits the big(ger) screen as the Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney Trilogy arrives on consoles and PC. The writing continues to hold up well even after all these years and the ability to play the original games on the TV is a treat. It would have been nice if more new features were added aside from the upgraded visuals. For those new to the series or Ace Attorney veterans who haven't played the games in years, however, I have no objections in recommending this particular trilogy.
This is an unofficial celebration of (nearly) 20 years of Phoenix Wright, and it’s a damn good one at that, even with its failings. You can hardly go wrong with the Granddaddy of the visual novel — a quirky, comical romp into the courtroom.
Giving a whole new audience the chance to discover the exploits of fledgling defence lawyer Phoenix Wright and his bizarre world, Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney Trilogy is fantastic. There's no reason to object to this, Your Honour. I rest my case.
Ace Attorney Trilogy is a modestly priced collection of thrilling adventures that highlight the best narrative arc in the series thus far. The writing is smart, the narrative is enthralling, and the characters are charming if not kooky. There's a personal concern that the newer and cleaner art direction will put off some series purists and the cases can feel a bit slow in some parts, but otherwise, this is the best the series has ever looked and played and easily worth your attention.
Over a decade after their first releases, the Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney Trilogy collates and returns the courtroom sleuth to the limelight in style. As funny and gripping as it ever was, fans of crime dramas as well as language and logic puzzles are going to love Wright's redux.
Phoenix Wright's courtroom sojourns pack every bit the punch now that they did almost two decades ago. Any opinion to the contrary merits a very loud and emphatic objection.
Phoenix Wright's story and humor stand the test of time, but the graphical upgrades do it no favors. While voiceovers would be appreciated, the sound effects and dialogue are creative enough to make up for it.
The Trilogy remains one of our favorite experiences in video games, especially the third game. there is nothing new here, but good times are waiting anyone willing to give this series a try.

A must buy. Case closed. There are so many reasons to pick this up. For those who haven't tried the series out, this debut on other consoles add up to a wonderful incentive. It's amazing that even 20 years on, these still hold up. The only thing that lets this collection down is that there is little extra to elevate this remaster, other than just a graphical overhaul. Regardless of this small bump, these remain some of the very best Visual Novels out there and with no end in sight for the series, this glimpse of them arriving on new platforms is very promising.
The Ace Attorney games are a series that will make a lifelong fan out of you. The stories and music are sure to stay with you for years to come, and I wholeheartedly recommend the original trilogy.
Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney Trilogy offers a trio of well regarded games in one collection that is well optimized for the new platforms. If you haven't played them yet, what are you waiting for?

Whichever title you end up preferring, there’s an absurd amount of truly enjoyable content here, and you’ll struggle to find anything as unique as these three Phoenix Wright games.
The sheer age of the games are beginning to count against them but Ace Attorney still remains exhibit A in how to make even the silliest story-based games fun and engaging.
There's no denying that breaking down an arrogant witness, and ultimately winning a case in Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney feel fantastic. Fitting in the right pieces of evidence to find contradictions is extremely satisfying, I just wish there was more depth, and a little more nuance, to both the witnesses you're breaking down, and the game at large.
Full of quirky characters and the convoluted cases to solve, Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney Trilogy is still a great visual novel adventure, and it's been thoroughly spruced up for modern consoles. It's not the most adventurous of remasters, but there's a real charm to these games that's great for newcomers as well as fans revisiting the series.
If you have never played the Phoenix Wright games, the Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney Trilogy is a decent enough place to start. However the lack of any extras or improvements make it tough to recommend if you've played the Phoenix Wright games before.
TAKE THIS! Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney, the classic courtroom visual novel, all about a rookie defence attorney, has managed to make its way onto the current generation of consoles. The important question to ask: Does this game guilty of being an overpriced cash grab or does it prove that there is still enjoyment in this port of the original trilogy? Let’s find out.
