Objection! is a fun courtroom simulation game that is both educational and interesting. Instead of simulating a trial lawyer's entire career or case similar to In The 1st Degree or Perry Mason, the game focuses specifically on the trial itself and what you, as the defendant's lawyer, should respond every time the prosecutor questions a witness. The gameplay is simple: you have to hit the key that raises the correct reason for your objection to the prosecutor's statement (or to remain silent if there is no grounds for objection, i.e. the prosecutor's question is valid). For example, you have to object on grounds that the prosecutor's question is leading, argumentative, based on hearsay, irrelevant to the case, vague, or several more reasons. Every time you choose the correct reason for objection, your score goes up. Similarly, your score goes down if you choose the wrong reason. You also score points for remaining silent if there is no reason to object (by choosing "the question is proper" key). Although that is all there is to the game, hundreds of tricky questions make it ideal for anyone who is interested in the legal process – especially courtroom trials. If you enjoy this first release, be sure to check out more recent versions of the Objection! series at the game's official website below. Later games not only include more questions taken from actual trials, but also provide in-depth explanations and even qualify for CLE credit in the U.S. Make sure you visit the new official site for the latest versions of the game.
