The ending was extremely depressing, but also extremely pleasing. It was very sad for multiple reasons. As in a Stephen King book, it has one of the types of endings people often complain about and think 'Did that really just happen?'. While it was very depressing, it went out in such an emotional way that I accepted it right away. It answered most, if not all mysteries the previous games gave us and never answered themselves. Ever since the first game, I've had a feeling that Misty Fey would have to reappear before the series could properly end. It finally happened, and that immediately showed me that this case was going to answer all the questions the series raised in the past. Overall, I think it was a very proper closing to such a great series.
It does leave you with a few new mysteries too though. It doesn't seem to be the same for everyone else, but after that case, I felt that Iris and Phoenix HAVE to get married. By the looks of Apollo Justice, they probably didn't. But I'm not sure if the game ever says whether or not Phoenix is married to anyone, since I haven't actually played it. I hope AJAA2 answers some of the questions the last case of PWT&T made me wonder.
I give the last case in the Phoenix Wright part of the Ace Attorney games a 10 out of 10. Though it answered a lot, it also left us with some things to think out on our own. In my opinion, that's the best way to end a story.
