Not playing per se, but I've been watching Apollo Justice: Ace Attorney on Youtube the past few days; certainly an interesting one.
SPOILER: Show
It doesn't reach the original trilogy in my opinion, there's a few things that bug me about it. The first two cases are far too errattic and unfocused, never really feeling the part; the third is better for most of it, but still struggles with that. The last case, as per usual, tells a very good story, but the execution is not great. That sudden break in the flow of gameplay and borderline-4th-wall-break doesn't bode well, and somewhat diminishes the overall effect.
I'm also not huge on the whole "every case in this is secretly related to a single old case" thing, but that's just me
I can see why Gendo hired Misato to do the actual commanding. He tried it once and did an appalling job. ~ AWinters

The movies function on their own terms. If people can't accept them on those terms, and keep expecting them to be NGE, then they probably should have realized a while ago that they weren't going to have a good time. ~ Words of wisdom courtesy of Reichu

Well, I spent the past handful of days bingewatching Phoenix Wright Ace Attorney: Dual Destinies on youtube; definitely better than Apollo Justice, I really enjoyed this one. Almost all of the cases are really solid with the final one comfortably settling in as my new third favorite; only real complaint I have is that the higher framerate and detail of the 3d models doesn't always work well with the very stylized poses
