Fun, but could stand some improvements


I haven't played the DS originals, so I can't compare theses games to those, but overall these are fun "visual novels" that do give you some sense of participation. The characters and stories are fun and creative, and there's a surprising amount of humor sprinkled throughout.
The collection loses a star because there's no way to skip ahead when you're reading stuff you've already read before, and you'll find yourself doing that a lot in these games.
The "Apollo Justice" sequel handles this better by sometimes (but not always) allowing you to skip ahead or display text more quickly. There's no reason they couldn't add that feature to this trilogy.
Besides the sometimes-infuriating requirement of reading the same text over and over, the lack of a skip feature and/or any sort of text speed setting easily makes playing through these titles take at least twice as long, unnecessarily, as they would otherwise. And these are not short games.
There are numerous textual errors and cases where one character's dialog seems to be attributed to a different character, but these weren't show-stoppers. I assume they were carried over from earlier versions of the games.
Also, you may end up looking for online help in some spots where your next step is not clear.
The stories are fun enough that I stuck with it despite the frustrations.

What happened?


Okay, so I played these games on the GBA (imports), the DS (North American Releases) AND the Wii (straight ports). And then I saw this and thought:
"Updated graphics? Retina display support? I'm sold!"
So, I bought the full bundle and started playing. Then I noticed something. The graphics AREN'T updated. They no longer look like sprites, and than means their movements, compared to the other options to play this game, are incredibly lame (and choppy). Sure, the larger screen, retina clarity and smoother lines are nice, but come on Capcom! Update everything or update nothing, cause people are going to notice! Overall, if you have any of the three options I named above, get those. If this is your introduction to the series, it's not great, just don't play the earlier versions or ports and expect the graphics on this one to be better. Overall, Capcom doesn't;t deserve any more of my money until they decided to "un-cancel" Megaman Legends 3...

Many Glitches


The game has been great up until I got to "Rise from the Ashes." My God. This Case is broken to the max. The hit boxes are out of whack, the Court Record is messed up, the characters' lines are occasionally cut off, some dialogue options don't appear after showing evidence, etc. These glitches also appear in other cases (Rise from the Ashes was just the best example). In one case (I forgot which specific case), you have to meet Detective Gumshoe, but he doesn't appear in the place he's supposed, leaving the player stuck. Along with the glitches the "updated" graphics are choppy and poor.
