"The Man In Blue Is Headed For The Courtroom Again"
The court see's no need to prolong this trial this court finds the defendant............OBJECTION! Yeah that's right Ryuuichi Naruhodou (Phoenix Wright) is back with an all new story waiting for him. This game takes place a year after Gyakuten Saiban with Ryuuichi in his 2nd Year as a defense attorney and he has made quite a name for himself creating more allies as well as more enemies, this game offers a whole new cast of characters while still keeping most of the characters from the previous game.
Just like before in Gyakuten Saiban you have 2 parts to the game you investigate certain area's that are connected to the case your handling to gain evidence or talk to people related to the case/victim, the other part of the game is when your inside the courtroom which is basically the same as before except this time instead of having 5 chances you have you have a health/chance meter in which you have a certain number of chances to get the right evidence presented or choose the correct answer. The number of chances you have can vary between only 1 or 2 chances to having 5 or 6 chances so you best be prepared when the time comes to make the correct decision. One of the main differences in this game are the addition of objects called Psych-Locks in which only you can see them and can tell that the witness is lying or is hiding something and the only way to get the truth out of them is to break those Psych-Locks.
Once again this is the Japanese Version of Phoenix Wright: Justice For All for the DS so you might wanna look up a guide or translator to help you along in this game. However unlike the first Gyakuten Saiban game this game includes all the cases that we received on the DS, once again you have 4 cases however these cases are quite long so for the length of each episode 4 episodes are actually alot. Now let's talk about how the ratings of this game are compare to it's DS counterpart.
Since it's not the same quality as the DS version it does get a lower score than the DS version however for only being a gameboy advance game the graphics are extremely great but not exactly perfect so an 8 out of 10 is deserved in my opinion
Once again since it's not as good of a quality compared to the DS Phoenix Wright game it's sound isn't really as great but it's still great though. 7 out of 10 is a fair rating
The story of this game is what really entertains the player as it has a huge and interesting story. When you start the game the first thing you see is Ryuuichi Naruhodou sitting out on the sofa in the courtroom waking up from a phone ringtone and as he is trying to answer the phone a mysterious figure appears behind him and attacks him from behing rendering him unconcious for a few minutes then waking up to find out he has Amnesia and can't remember anything about himself, the case he is supposed to work on, the defendant, and even his own job as a Defense Attorney! So he must go and get a not guilty verdict for his client while having AMNESIA oh boy this can't be good. It makes you, the player hyped up and ready to play the game. An awesome story so a 10 out of 10 is most definatly deserved here.
This game difficulty is very fair as the game isn't that hard as long as you have been paying attention to the witnesses and the evidence that has been presented or found. So really if you mess up it's not the games fault it's really your own fault as you have all the evidence and you've read all the testimony's so you should be able to make a connection between the evidence and the contradictions in the statements that have been made. Perfect example of how an equal level of difficulty is made in a game 7 out of 10 deserves to be rated here.
I bet you anybody who has played Gyakuten Saiban (JPN) or Phoenix Wright (US) will tell you that these games have very high ratings of re-play value. Plus just the feeling of playing these games it seems like you yourself are Phoenix Wright instead of controlling Phoenix Wright it's a great touch to the game and I promise you, you won't regret playing this game or even buying this game.
So that's Gyakuten Saiban 2 or Phoenix Wright Justice For All (US) in a nutshell. It's a very interesting game series and It may even help you in your thinking and connecting things together so you're kind of learning something while playing a great game. I think I've shown enough evidence to prove that this game is worthy of a 9/10 rating all that's left is the verdict! how do you find this game to be Guilty of not living up to your expectations or Not Guilty. You'd better make your case fast as the judge is about to pass the verdict fight for your defendant's innocence then when you're all done with your case it's time to let out that word you've been holding back all this time. Ready now's the time to say it...........OBJECTION!
