Vandal Online (May 25, 2010)
Es la mejor entrega de la serie, probablemente. A su buen guión se añade que el carisma del protagonista se vuelve desbordante, y aunque hay elementos que fueron mucho más sólidos en la cuarta entrega (exclusiva de Nintendo DS, al menos de momento; recordemos que además de WiiWare, Phoenix Wright está visitando el iPhone), el vínculo establecido por los aficionados con Wright alcanza aquí su punto más álgido. No soluciona ninguno de los "peros" de las anteriores adaptaciones a WiiWare, pero sigue siendo una fantástica aventura

Even if the technical shortcomings remind players of its age, Trials and Tribulations is still a gripping title that both fans and newcomers will greatly enjoy. The gameplay will have players thinking while the story will keep them wanting more. The last entry in the Phoenix Wright trilogy ends on a very high note, and every player should be a witness to it.
GamePro (US) (May 18, 2010)
Sadly, when considering this game's origins, Trials and Tribulations on WiiWare looks and sounds like nothing more than -- yet another -- lazy port to the console. There are some Wii Remote extras thrown in, like waving the controller to object, but it doesn't compare to shouting into your DS to interrupt the legal proceedings. Phoenix Wright: Trials and Tribulations is a good value at $10, but the resized and harshly pixelated graphics, met with the minimalistic, underwhelming sound bytes, makes for an ugly overall experience that doesn't live up the stellar Ace Attorney brand of court-room dramas.
Nintendo Life (May 16, 2010)
It's quite easy to nitpick the inadequacies of these Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney releases on WiiWare given their shoddy transition to the big screen, but it's also worth noting that you are still getting basically the same game, you're just not getting it with the smooth coat of paint many might prefer. If you're one of the people who don't own a DS system (all four of you), this might be worth a play for you, but unless you're just a die-hard Phoenix Wright fan that has to have everything related to the series, you might want to pass on this half-hearted WiiWare attempt.
Gamer Limit (Jun 07, 2010)
Take the previous game in the series and change nothing, add some new cases, some big plot holes, and a couple of stupid characters. That's Trials & Tribulations.
IGN UK (May 13, 2010)
Altogether, Trials and Tribulations appeals and disappoints in just the same way as Capcom's first two WiiWare ports in the series -- still worth purchasing as a good adventure and a good value, but also worth shaking your head over since it hasn't been given any extra love and attention at all.
GameZone (Jul 27, 2010)
Too bad, then, that the game looks terrible on the Wii. Like the other Phoenix WiiWare ports, it’s pixilated, ugly, and low-res to the point of distraction. It’s nice that we don’t have to pay extra for the final case, as with the Wii port of the first game, but considering the game’s shoddy appearance and the loss of DS interactivity without any effort to make any Wii-friendly replacements (you know, besides waggle), this is far from the definitive version of the game and an insult to earnest fans.
