The Good

The story is great with a lot of twists, nicely animated cut-scenes, great soundtrack, a great variety of characters you meet through the games campaign, and a satisfying ending. A hand-full of content to go through after finishing the game. Great tools to help you solve puzzles. Making the puzzles easier to solve with the help of tips at the expense of spending coins that you collect, which you can also spend to make court cases easier.

The Bad

Annoying lag that happens from time to time. Unnecessary placements of puzzles in some parts of the game’s campaign. Some of it’s dialogue is just not interesting to read.

The Money

Priced at 30$ at retail, the game combines what’s good from two series and combines them together to make an amazing game, and so I’m going to say that it’s well worth the purchase.

Final Thoughts

Only playing the Ace Attorney series, and never had i had the chance to play Professor Layton games, this was a good opportunity to check that series out, and after finishing it I’m going to get and play the Professor Layton games from newest to old, because i had fun playing through that portion in PL vs. PW. One thing i didn’t like about the game is how the Ace Attorney character models looked weird, or badly modeled since they were using the engine used in professor Layton games, but either way i had an amazing time playing this game and experiencing it’s story.
