As I said, I was excited to try Phoenix Wright. I actually chose to review it before The Secret of Monkey Island, which I loved back on the PC. Sadly, I think this review makes it painfully obvious just how disappointed I was with the results of my choice. The story and writing are worth experiencing, but they are outweighed by unpleasant elements at almost every turn. To make matters worse, the game uses up your iPhone/iPod's battery far more quickly than it should given its extremely undemanding graphics, animation, and sound. If you can find this game on another platform for a price even relatively close to the $5 that it currently costs on iTunes, I'd recommend it. A series doesn't become as beloved as Phoenix Wright is by turning out games as mediocre as this iPhone OS port.
