    Meet Phoenix Wright, a rookie defense lawyer with the wildest cross-examination skills in town. Take on five intriguing cases to reveal dramatic, stunning, and even comical court proceedings. Use both the dual screen and touch screens to investigate crime scenes, question witnesses and present shocking evidence. You won't be able to put down this riveting and surprisingly over-the-top adventure!

    In all five cases, you defend clients accused of murder. Courtroom scenes carom at a tennis-match pace as manga-style action slashes back and forth among you, the prosecution and the witness on the stand. After the prosecutor concludes the interrogation, you'll cross-examine, picking apart the testimonial sentence by sentence, demanding further explanations and slapping down evidence to reveal contradictions.

    Although the scenes can be intense, they're never entirely serious. The writing is very clever, which is key for such a talky game. Corny wordplay puts witnesses like Sal Manilla on the stand. Goofy parody sends Redd White of BlueCorp, a president who says he's above the law, to the stand, where he promptly butchers the English language. Histrionic manga-style touches like sweat drops the size of bowling balls and bug-eyed double-takes underscore the tomfoolery.

    Bottom Line

    Phoenix Wright keeps its legal-eagle fantasy flying much of the time.
