I do not actually like Ace Attorney.
The games are linear -- even if the solution happens to be obvious, you have to go through and have Phoenix reveal every detail in a particular order even if it makes no sense -- and they're really, really dumb about exactly which piece of evidence to present. If I have four things that fit the description for "things I need", I have very little way of telling which one it wants. GODDAMMIT JUDGE (and Phoenix), FIGURE OUT WHAT I AM TRYING TO TELL YOU.
I like the characters well enough and I like the scripts but ugh Ace Attorney gameplay. So gross.
