Yeah, it sucks, because you just get attached to characters, and is Apollo's story about him learning how to be a lawyer?
this is the review from IGN.com: The fourth entry in the Ace Attorney series (most known for its original lawyer hero, Phoenix Wright), this game takes place seven years after the previous game and introduces a new protagonist. Here, players are put in the role of a fresh new ace attorney -- an Apollo Justice-- as he must gather evidence, interview witnesses, and survey crime scenes to prove himself. Apollo Justice: Ace Attorney utilizes the Touch Screen and other Nintendo DS features to enhance many of its entertaining puzzles and animations. This helps broaden the appeal of the game to longtime fans of the series as well as to new players.
