Well, this was certainly an interesting and surreal experience.
Where do I begin?
And the investigation, where the viewpoint switches to Phoenix from two days earlier, is where things get REALLY fun.
At this point, I'll split my musings to discuss the setting and the storyline.
Aside from that minor nitpick, I loved
the mysterious sci-fi apocalyptic/post-apocalyptic whatever setting. Made me think about it a lot, wondering just how a lot of things (the Shuttles, the systems left behind, and so forth) worked, and how a LOT of things would be different if such a thing actually happened.
Oh, and the fact that we had (aside from Albert's dream/epiphany) no familiar canon music only enhanced the effect of a familiar world turned into a bizarre distortion of its former self. Any familiar Ace Attorney themes (courtroom, Gumshoe's theme, even Detention Center) would have been way too comforting for a scenario such as this. The new and unfamiliar music is appropriately otherwordly in this context, and worked especially well in the investigation portion.
All in all, I thought this was a fascinating alternate reality. I wouldn't recommend it for anyone not familiar with the initial Phoenix Wright trilogy (as it relies heavily on the audience being already familiar with the stories and characters of the first three installments), but it was certainly an experience that stayed with me long after I finished.
I give it eight out of ten stars. 8/10
