Warning! This article is one giant spoiler for every Ace Attorney game out! It is practically a discussion of nothing but spoilers. If you have not played through every Ace Attorney game released, do not read this! I repeat! Do not read this!
I’m a big fan of the Ace Attorney games. It and the
franchise are the two I consider to have the best writing in gaming. I’ve played every Ace Attorney game out and I’m proud to be a part of its rabid fanbase. Monkey Island
However, I seem to be the only one who was disappointed by the latest game, Ace Attorney: Dual Destinies. I really truly wanted to like it as much as the other games, but I couldn’t. To get straight to the point and put it as simply as possible: the writing wasn’t as strong, and for a game franchise that focuses as heavily on writing as the Ace Attorney games, that’s like trying to walk without a skeleton.
