Review: Trauma Team

Enjoy the opportunity to show off your medical brilliance. Cane and cranky attitude optional.

I do believe that, from a gameplay standpoint, I'm cut out for the mostly tension free world of diagnostics and forensics.

Sounds good, and forgiving. I was scared off by the past games.

OHHH!

Does the game bring back GUILT?

Also, is the video supposed to be embedded twice?

TRAUMA TEAM IS OUT!?

O.O

OH MY GOD.

Erm... yeah. Not a Trauma Center fanboy. NEVER. But now I know what I'm doing after school... learning exactly why I should never be trusted with someone's life :D

Yep, once on each page. As for the plot...I'm just gonna let you find out on your own.

It is far more forgiving than previous iterations, and in my opinion, therefore far more enjoyable. It's much harder to flat-out fail than it used to be, but it's still quite challenging to get those S ratings. A very nice balance.

I'm not the kind of person to go for stuff like S ratings...Surely the 6 characters will keep me entertained long enough, no? But I'll see about picking this up in a few weeks. When I'm done with Monster Hunter Tri. :)

Me personally, I say the game is worth it just for the diagnostics, forensics, and emergency med. The other three are just gravy.

sounds cool!

Ive really looked forward to this so im certainly looking forward to playing it myself...

Its nice to see it been a little different from the norm in terms of the other games in the series

You know, that sort of medical variety, with the usual Trauma Center difficulty, would be exactly the right reason to revive my Wii...

but then again, playing Wii Trauma games are like trying to snipe whilst drunk, high on anphetamines and with severe heart conditions (another way of saying wonky as fuck), so if there's no implementation of the Wii motion plus, or if it doesn't have a DS counterpart, I'm gonna give this one a solid miss.

The "non-surgery" jobs give me a very Phoenix Wright kinda feel.

I can play as a Greg House with Spike Spiegel's looks & hairdo? Grab me a Wii and sign me up.

OMG i cant wait!! I love trauma team :)
Being restricted by the bf tho, not allowed to play it till after exams :'( roll on May 24th

I've been a fan of the series on the DS, but not too sure about the Wii's motion control coupled with Trauma Center's unforgiving difficulty and resulting depression for failing to save another life (again)... Definitely going to pick this up when they add the playable Gynecologist tho! Cross those fingers.

Yahtzee would love this game. Everyone spam him until he reviews it. That always works right?

An understandable concern, but trust me, it won't be a problem in this instance. Even without the Motion Plus, the controls still work perfectly, and are forgiving enough so that you don't have to be 100% exact. You can be a bit shaky and still succeed.

If the precision of the control is your sole reason to not try the game, definitely reconsider. It's just not a factor this time around.

FAN GIRL SCREAM!

Yeah, I loved the newest DS version. This game is gonna be so amazingly amazing.... especially if it got easier because god only knows that the ds version was damn hard. I'm not sure why I love such bizarre games but there you go ;)

This actually sounds like a really interesting game with all the modes of play available, almost enough to make me wish I had a Wii.

I really enjoyed the previous Wii iterations, and I am a LITTLE concerned about the pulling back of the difficulty. I realize that this is just a game, but a surgery SHOULD be rather difficult and not have a large margin of error. It gives you more of a sense of accomplishment. You should really "learn" what to use on various thing as opposed to being blatantly told every time what tool to use. Still, the game does look fun and it's already in my gamefly queue. Just wish I didn't have to still wait nearly a month to do so...

I actually had my mind made up that i wouldnt like this game before i watched the video, i may have been wrong it looks fun.

I'm gonna shoot!
"SPAAAAANG!"
I am totally going to say that now. Spaaang!

Forgive me if it is stated, but is the newest game out on DS?
It's mentioned that other TT games have been on DS, but the video's totally on the Wii.

Other Trauma games have been on the DS, yes, but Trauma Team is for the Wii.

Sounds like an absolutely ace game. Might even convince me to dust off my Wii and give it a go.

Really excited to give this a shot! I've loved all of the Trauma Center games I've played so far and I doubt this will be much different :)

Pretty much exactly what he said (except I don't have gamefly).

It always felt like an accomplishment to succeed in each mission, and it's more realistic to be more precise... But alas, everything is trying to more mainstream these days eh?

... there is only one thing i could think about... "Eagle-punch" ;D

If only Derek was in it. Oh well. If I had a Wii, I would buy it.

How do you top the masked super-hero joke?

Well... since he's apparently calling himself "Captain Eagle", all you really have to do is make a "Falcon punch" joke.

Trauma centre for the DS was ridiculous. You had to operate on 5 patients in 8 minutes at one point and the only way I passed was to get deunk in a bar and then try it....which when you think about it is just about the most accurate depiction of surgery ever. This could be awesome though too

and is the crazy story a plus or is it just weird and misplaced.

Probably going to pick this up, main reason being it's an Atlus Game. I have been on a real Atlus binge lately. Looks cool though, may actually get around to opening it eventually to play :P. After I finish Persona 3, 2, and 1, Digital Devil Saga 1+2, Devil Summoner 1+2 and the 4 or 5 Atlus games I got for DS :P.

What surprises (and horrifies) me is that there seems to be such a dedicated following to this.

I'll pass.

The ending cracked me up

What is that? With the butterflies
XD great review

lol...
EAGLE PUNCH! XD

I couldn't get the video to load :( probably my connection.

This sounds like a glorified game of Operation ^_^ lol
