Trauma Centre: Second Opinion

 

Trauma Centre first appeared on the Nintendo DS in a much simpler form. Second Opinion is a bigger and better remake, embracing the Wii motion controls so you can stitch, suture and drain your way to becoming a perfect doctor. You are Derek Stiles, a...

An original idea, well designed and executed ; Good Characters

Lots of info to remember

Trauma Centre Second Opinion must be one of the strangest ideas for a game out there, but give it a chance and you'll find it actually works quite well. Some players will find the character interactions an irritation while they wait for the next...

Trauma Center: Second Opinion

 

All of the fun of practicing medicine with none of those bothersome malpractice suits! The reason I'm a big fan of Atlus is that I've come to expect games from...

Great showcase for Wii controls ; Interesting Characters ; Atlus-style Character Design ; Engaging Storyline ; Juicy Surgery Sound Effects Emit from Wiimote ; Practice medicine without malpractice insurance

Many surgeries require educated guesswork ; Don’t drink caffeine before playing, it makes drawing a straight line darn near impossible

Trauma Centre: Second Opinion Review (Wii)

 

It's a little hard to get excited about the release of a Wii launch title, one year and eight months after the console hit our shores. Trauma Centre: Second Opinion is a “Wii-make” of the DS cult classic Trauma Centre: Under the Knife, allowing players...

The Bottom Line: This is a high quality title that will appeal to a wide group of Wii owners.  Very unique gameplay, and is right at home on the Wii console.

Trauma Center: Second Opinion - Wii review at Thunderbolt Games

 

Being a surgeon is damn tiring. Aching fingers and wrist, strained shoulder, squinting eyes. No wonder the big bucks are there for saving people, although it's all going to be spent on physiotherapy in the end.

Trauma Center: Second Opinion

 

When looking to make a video game simulation, most game companies make flight sims, war sims, or pet sims. But not Atlus. They decided they should make a surgery sim. Thankfully, instead of a grotesque realistic surgery sim requiring accurate surgical...

Trauma Center was largely ignored when it was released those many months ago. Maybe it's because it was a port. Maybe it's because it was a niche title to begin with. But it's one of the best Wii titles available. And it's slowly gained enough sales...

Trauma Center: Second Opinion review

 

While it would appear that most game producers and developers scamper to adapt existing franchises, series, and ready-made ideas to the Wii console, with often embarrassingly awkward results-much like, say, a polar bear driving a Miata-some gearheads...

Players cut, slash, and sew their way through numerous levels while fighting a particularly deadly, terrorist-spawned virus.

Trauma Center: Second Opinion

 

Atlus' surgery title has potential ...and that's about it.

That said, Trauma Center: Second Opinion still represents a neat idea, and it's worth playing just to experience a sliver of the potential that idea offers. As a game though, Trauma Center: Second Opinion doesn't work as well. It's frustrating, often...

Trauma Center: Second Opinion Revi..

 

A unique game that turns a medical operation into a lot of fun.

It's definitely worth a rental and if you've never played the original, probably worth a purchase.

Trauma Center: Second Opinion

 

The DS's popularity was driven by big name titles and established franchises, like Metroid and Mario Kart, but it was sustained by bizarre original games that the dedicated gamer wouldn't normally play. Nintendogs and notably Trauma Center: Under the...

Even as a remake, Trauma Center: Second Opinion is an innovative, challenging game that is one hell of a lot of fun. The hectic adrenaline pumping surgeries are back with more eye candy and a smoother interface. New difficulty levels make the game far...

Trauma Center: Second Opinion review for the WII

 

More surgery!; Clear, kinda weird graphics; Good Wii controls

That could use better in-game explanation; Recycled content; Needs more depth; No multiplayer

Even with the linear storyline (which is at least split between two playable characters, one old, one new) it's more fun to operate with the remote than the DS stylus. Trauma Center: Second Opinion may showcase a few beginner's mistakes, but they're...
