Title
It is both surprising to me and uplifting that the Ace Attorney trilogy found its way on its ending mark, a game that neatly ties all of its threads and themes set up and brings home the real deal on the nature of humanity, why we put ourselves on the line in the pursuit of truth. Not just the truth about others but also our own mindsets, biases, and understandings.

Trials and Tribulations threads the needle perfectly both in terms of characterization for all its major characters including new ones brought up, as well as general writing. The prose and charm is still at its top notch here, and it makes most sentences a delight to read, even at the game's lowest point. The casewriting is at its best, with good logical points to follow, and investigations that are well paced and make sense this time around. Breaking down testimony is still immensely satisfying as the solid music plays in the background.

There's really only one fumble to mention, that despite everything being set up so well and executed on with a perfect fashion, it still puts two mostly throw-away filler cases I can do without. 3-2 is tolerable, but 3-3 is so stupid that I go back and forth whether it was the stupidest shit to be added to this game in particular, or if it's just funny and self aware enough to be excused. Either way, there's a whole middle point that needs to be passed.

Even still, 3-1, 3-4, and 3-5 are where the bulk of the storytelling is and it's all a delight to read, managing to get me teary-eyed near the end as the case writing wrapped up. It was an amazing journey, a complete far cry from how I felt about the first two games.

    I played the spanish version, and there's a misstranslation in the last trial that makes it basically imposible to know what the correct course of action is lol. Anyways, absolute banger of a game, fucking insanely good writing

    I really like this game, but it's strange to think that it's a top 50 game of all time

    I feel the same way. It should be top 25 at the very least.

    Do I have to play the other games to play this one?

      Technically no, but I'd strongly advise against it. While you would be able to follow most of the plot, you may be confused at some important moments, which rely on events that happened in AA1 and AA2.
      The first game is almost as good, anyway, and the gameplay isn't dated at all (in fact, it's pretty much identical to AA3). If you are willing to play this one, there really is no reason for you not to play the previous as well. They're all good. And they were also released as a singular trilogy -- also for a reason.

    I feel the same way. It should be top 5 at least.
