Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney: Justice for All (Gyakuten Saiban 2 in Japan) is the second game in the Ace Attorney series that takes place in the year following the events of the first game, Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney. It originally was a Japan exclusive GBA game but, was ported to the DS worldwide in 2006.
The gameplay is very similar to the last iteration. You play as Phoenix Wright either in trials or investigating the scene of the crime for clues. The former has you press the witnesses' testimonies forcing to expand on details to search for inaccuracies and presenting evidence to prove their inaccuracies. Presenting the wrong evidence or pressing too much will result in depletion of the green bar which will result in a game over.
The other element of gameplay is the investigation. the player examines locations looking for evidence and asking witnesses for information. Sometimes evidence needs to be presented to gain more information on the case. The game won't progress until the player has received certain information.
A new element introduced in this game is the Magatama. It was a gift from Maya that lets the user see if someone is hiding something in their heart. It occurs during the investigation portion of the game. The gameplay in this part is somewhat similar to a trial where you have the green bar and have to present evidence to unlock the chains on their heart. Showing the wrong evidence tends to deplete the green bar for the rest of the episode, of varying amounts depending on the scenario indicated by the flashing green portion of the bar.
