Best Ace Attorney Games

The Top Ten Best Ace Attorney Games

1 Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney: Trials and Tribulations

Played the first 3 and then Apollo Justice, and the 3rd one is far and away the best in the series. Amazing storyline, the guy who drinks the coffee is hilarious, and it has a great ending that ties everything together

One of the very best games of all time - not a bad case and it will astound you!

Most memorable game in my opinion. The soundtrack is amazing, and the story really grips you. My personal favorite game of all time.

Favorite game in the series, and I hope Spirit of Justice tops it! - theendoftime

2 Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney

The experience to corner your "Enemie" for the first time is great.

What a great way to start off a great series! - theendoftime

How can Apollo be above Phoenix

3 Gyakuten Kenji 2

Amazing story
Logic chess is great
You never get stuck
Fan translation is awesome
All cases tied together
Best ace attorney game is my opinion, with second being Apollo Justice.

Sadly there's no official translation, but despite it's unorthodox gameplay when compare to the main games, the story carries it to the top of the list for me.

One of the greatest Ace Attorney games ever made. It didn't come to the West, but the fan translation is so good, I don't even care that it didn't, other than that this game deserves to be played by more people

This game's qualities range from decent to fantastic, and no other Ace Attorney game felt so consistent.

4 Apollo Justice: Ace Attorney

Everyone hates on this so much just because they disliked Hobo Phoenix! In my opinion Hobonix and Apollo Justice have so much more personality than Trilogy Phoenix.

It is so overhated because you don't play as Phoenix.

I don't really like this one, and not just because you're not Phoenix. It's because the cases are uninteresting. - theendoftime

5 Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney - Dual Destinies

The best game in my opinion case 1 is a decent case 1 and tonate is an awesome case 1 villain case 2 is my favorite in the series case 3 is good case 4 is really good and case 5 is amazing but still not as good as case 2 in my opinion also fulbright is hilarious (yes I know the secret I won't talk about because spoilers) - Aceattorneyfan

My favorite game in the series, the final case is one of my favorites too. - starryrcad

Best game in my opinion (I like Investigations 2 too but this is the best AA game in my opinion)

I love this one, but I really do think it gets so much more hate than it deserves.

6 Phoenix Wright Ace Attorney: Spirit of Justice

Spirit of Justice has the best music in the series and it's story feels amazing and it helps redefine Phoenix Wright's purpose and puts real threats to you losing plus it has Apollo Justice really get a lot of character development. Although I wish you could use the perceive ability during court and investigations like you did in Apollo Justice.

It has an amazing plot, beautiful graphics, and unforgettable characters. Episode five was probably one of the best cases in the Phoenix Wright series. I won't spoil it for any one, but it had some heart-wrenching moments which were very well done. 10 out of 10!

It literally has everything I've loved about the first trilogy and Apollo plus a helping heap of original material between the setting, goofy names, the Insight system, and returning characters with new layers.

Uhmmm why is it on 10th place?

7 Ace Attorney Investigations: Miles Edgeworth
8 Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney: Justice For All

Not as good as the other 2 games of the original trilogy, but Farewell, My Turnabout makes up for it!

In every game the last case is the biggest and most effective on the overall game and develops the characters the most. In this game you can think of every case as one of those big cases. The three that I personally loved the most where Turnabout Big Top; Farewell, My Turnabout; and Reunion, and Turnabout because each one has a character you can sympathize with. Acro, Pearly, and Adrian all dealt with horrible incidents.

Way too overly hated. This game alone affects almost all of the events in later games, introduces some pretty cool game mechanics, and has some of the best cases in the series.

Has the best case in the entire series. Horrendously underrated.

9 Professor Layton vs Phoenix Wright Ace Attorney

So overhated because it's a crossover with Professor Layton, a less popular series. I actually knew PL before PW, and the crossover introduced me to Phoenix Wright. - theendoftime

An amazing introduction to two series I would eventually be huge fans of

The soundtrack is so beautiful, except for Iris' theme

The Contenders
