I cannot begin to describe how much I enjoy Socrates Jones. The writing is fantastic, the characters are memorable, every joke hits a bulls-eye, and there is even an emotional storyline woven into the mix. But all of this is nothing compared to the game's greatest strength: originality. It's NEW. It's DIFFERENT. It takes the style of the Ace Attorney series and somehow manages to surpass it with it's own unique themes and gameplay elements. It takes philosophy, one of the scariest classes to teach and learn, and makes it fun and inviting. It takes risks and ends up shining above the rest of Newground's countless offerings.
Socrates Jones is a game I will not forget. For that reason, I have given it the distinction of being one of my TOP 10 GAMES ever released on Newgrounds. It truly is an adventure that needs to be experienced, and hopefully it will continue to be experienced for the foreseeable future.
wow, it took me a DAY to play but it was worth it.. however I do not agree with philosophical ideas set forth in the game, I do believe that truly no man can find true meaning of morality. For as Mills put it in the game "Good is Happiness" and happiness is subject to individual desire.
This game was awesome! to challenge the different philosophers and their beliefs is pretty cool in having actual debates about the subject of morality. I just wish though that voice actors were hired to voice the characters. This game really makes you think and pay attention to what the philosophers say so that you can correctly respond. I really hope that a sequel game is in the works because I'd love to play more of this with a different subject matter
Great game! I first played this when I was studying philosophy in High School, and so I could really understand and appreciate a lot of the references, and viewpoints. I must admit, I've never played any Ace Attorney games, but if they're nearly as good as this, then I'll have to get around to them some day.
Awesome game, although the Arbiter's surprise I had expected for a while.
