A.V. Club writes: "The fifth game in the Ace Attorney series has a new protagonist, but players familiar with the franchise will find most of what they've come to expect. There are plenty of awful pun-names, ludicrous characters, and frustrating puzzles. Prosecutor Miles Edgeworth became a fan favorite for his role as an antagonist to defense attorney Phoenix Wright in the Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney games. But in Ace Attorney Investigations: Miles Edgeworth, the prosecutor has bigger problems than winning his cases."
