Video Game Talk: "Apollo Justice stands apart from the previous games in the area of forensic science and evidence investigation. For instance, shifting through the courtroom evidence is vastly more interactive and entertaining. Objects can now be rotated on the X & Y axis to search for clues as well as zooming in the view. "
"Regardless of the duration, the immersive story and witty writing is definitely worth the entry fee. Those who are well versed in the Phoenix Wright saga will pick up on references to past games and shouldn't hesitate to launch into Apollo's opening act. It's certainly not necessary to have played the previous games, but helps understand some of the humor. For anyone hungry for a new DS title to test their deductive skills, Apollo Justice is a safe bet."
