A stupid set-up that I refuse to believe for a second that even the Judge didn't see right through.

Gross, ugly characters that are hard to understand either by speaking in tongues or ridiculous accents/dialects.

Errand-running.

Penalties for pressing.

Even most of the regular crew is at/near their worst in this one, especially Gumshoe.

Say what you want about 2-3, but I never got legitimately pissed playing that one.

Well
It's either you like the characters in the case or you don't like it at all
Also Phenix trap at the end was great

Maybe the weakest T&T case (either that or 3-2), but still an above average case overall!

3-2 is great despite the bad defendant because of Luke Atmey and Godot, plus the fact that for the first day you're under the impression that for once you're actually in a relatively low-stakes case (ie not a murder) and then the wham moment at the end of the day.

3-3 is easily the worst case in the original trilogy. 4-2 is pretty bad, that might give it a run for its money when I get there.

3-2 is worse. It suffers from lack of character variety. You spend the whole trial questioning the same guy over and over.

Still a good case though, which says a lot about AA3.

I mean, it's convoluted as hell and the killer is blatantly obvious when she's the only one who sees the giant robot.

Yeah, 3-3 was incredibly stupid. Not just the imposter thing, but that whole business with the mirror was dumb and made so little sense.

Worst in the series is easily 4-2 though.

(It wins word defendant in the series though easily)

The worst thing about 1-3 is that the case goes to day 3 despite Powers being proven innocent on day 2, but that's the wacky world of Ace Attorney for you - it's not enough to just prove your client innocent, you also have to prove the real killer guilty.

Oh, and Sal Manella, but he isn't in it for that long.

Otherwise 1-3 isn't bad.

3-3 requires so much suspension of disbelief in so many directions that it makes 3-5 look normal.

Then you add on terrible characters (Jean easily being among the worst in the series), Maggey being insufferable, and Gumshoe at one of his lowest points.

Also we've had a Parrot in court in real life that's not exactly the answer you want to make your case with.

3-3 doesn't have any redeeming qualities at all to go with being a cesspool from every direction.

3-3 is literally the best 3rd case in the OT, and by a fairly decent margin at that. The best thing the anime did was massively improve both 1-3 and 2-3.

Also I'll take Armstrong over Kudo all day, but I can see why others wouldn't agree.

3-3 is arguably the worst AA3 case, but far superior to 1-1, 1-2, 2-1, 2-2, and 2-3.

the cast on day 1 is rough though, agreed

2-3 is worse because of the annoying character gimmicks, errand-running, and ridiculous murder.

3-3 is still pretty bad for many of the same reasons and I didn't believe that El Tigre could legitimately pose as Phoenix for a second.

3-2 is amazing, wtf are people talking about?

People still think 4 happened? I've written it off as non-canon.

I mean you might have just phased out through section then, because that wasn't really a detail in and of itself that mattered.

He hadn't seen the waitress's face, didn't remember where he was sitting at that time, claimed that the victim was wearing his HMD and the radio on his left ear - which was deaf and undergoing medication - and testified that the victim had broken a vase on his table as he died before realizing that he had done that himself.

It wasn't just one thing that was a problem. Sure you find out later it's because he witnessed a staged event and not the actual murder, but that isn't clear at the time.

4-1 is a top tier case, though. The rest of the game was not great for sure, but they could have been much better cases and still not been as good.

I actually think 4-2 is a fine case in retrospect...if you don't take it seriously at all. It generally succeeds at what it is trying to do, even though it's overly goofy even for the series.

Far better than the actual worst (non-tutorial) case, 2-3, which fails on every possible level! Bad cast, mostly unfunny humor, lame murder, bad villain, and to top it all of is inexplicably Franziska's send-off case as a prosecutor in AA2. 3-3 is just mediocre by comparison.
