When I first picked up Doki Doki Literature Club, I knew the sort of wild ride I was going to get into, thanks to the surge of popularity the game enjoyed on release. I played this a while back, so coming back to it now to review feels almost nostalgic. I noticed I somehow never reviewed the title back then and I wanted to at least review it once, especially now the hype is done. After all, there are still recommended videos on my YouTube feed, all to do with this seemingly innocuous title. So what makes Doki Doki Literature Club so good?
Religion and science doesn’t usually mix, but in this title, they could be the combination that literally kills you. In the latest iteration of the Phoenix Wright franchise, we’re back with a vengeance – and this time, defense attorneys are in as much trouble as their clients. From religious ministers hellbent on making sure you fail, to divination seances designed to make your clients look guilty, this might be Phoenix’s toughest trial yet.
