what's Adrian's line count in 2-4? she feels way more present than Bikini and is in a similarly sized case but might have less lines.


332, so a little less than Bikini but pretty close. Adrian's a big part of day 1, but not as big of a part of day 2. She only has the Psyche-Lock on investigation day 2, and only one testimony on trial day 2.

E2-2 time

I'm not looking forward to this

although the intro to this case is pretty solid and I love the prison as a setting

except a lot worse since it isn't actually that good in the middle either

like E2-2 is worth the price of admission for the Sahwit cameo and the setup for E2-5 with Keyes but other than that it's kinda meh

I liked it. I think the Sahwit stuff and the Elbird escape is in middle. I liked all that.

The Sahwit stuff is closer to the beginning, I think. The Elbird testimony at the end of Middle is good, too. Like E2-2 has some pretty good individual moments but as a whole, it's a mess and not very cohesive. The fact that End drags on interminably is just symptomatic of the shaky and inconsistent nature of the case as a whole.

Reduce E2-2's length by 40% and/or its self-seriousness by 80%, and it becomes a really nice mid-game case. I enjoy the whole cast except Dogen and the jail is a great setting.

The opaque pacing of it is one of my big issues with E2-2. In contrast, E2-3 and E2-5 are actually longer but don't pretend that they're ending before they're ready to end.
yet all sailors of all sorts are more or less capricious and unreliable - they live in the varying outer weather, and they inhale its fickleness

Yeah, I think the reason E2-2 feels so long is that you don't know what the endgame is or when it is coming, and it comes pretty late. I think the AAI series suffers from this in general, since the trial format keeps things flowing REALLY smoothly, whereas the AAI games can feel like they're plodding along without you knowing if you're in the middle or the end of the case.

Well, I also think part of it is that they tease you that you've hit the end with Elbird's testimony (they even use the Presto theme for it!) and seemingly honing in on Dogen as the killer...and then the case goes on for another four hours.

I wish that were an exaggeration. In that sense, it is absolutely like E1-5 in that they tease that you've hit the climax, but you're only at the halfway point. Well, in E1-5's case, it's more like the 65% mark, but close enough.
