Become a Badass Surgeon in Trauma Team

Become a Badass Surgeon in Trauma Team

In the first of a series of six videos, Atlus shows off the surgery portion of its medical focused multi-profession title Trauma Team.

Atlus's first foray into the surgery-game field was Trauma Center, a Nintendo DS title that spawned a sequel and also made its way to the Wii. Now, the series has evolved into another Wii title called Trauma Team, which not only covers surgery but five other disciplines. Though the fields other than surgery might be the most intriguing, for now we'll have to be happy with Atlus's new gameplay video of the surgery portion.

The annoying timer from Trauma Center is gone, and Trauma Team also has brand new graphics and visual indicators to help players out. Hospital life is naturally filled with drama already, but the Trauma series has always found a way to add even more. You don't play as a regular old surgeon in Trauma Team, you play as a criminal convicted of a terrible crime known only as CR-S01 (who also wears a funny helmet) that is brought out of jail to perform surgery again for an unknown reason.

Don't forget, this is just one of six gameplay types that will be included in Trauma Team. You will also play as a diagnostician, E.M.T., orthopedic surgeon, endoscopic technician, and forensic examiner. Only in a Trauma game can you be a badass while scoping someone's lower intestine. Some of these I am looking forward to more than surgery, just to see how Atlus has made them different from the procedures we've already done in Trauma Center. Susan Arendt already saw endoscopy, and has her impressions here.

My propensity towards these Atlus titles may come from playing Life & Death as a youth. That's right, there were surgery games on the market long before the Trauma series. "Playing" in Life & Death's case for me basically meant trying to figure out what was wrong with patients by poking their eyes out with needles and making them scream in pain. Yes, you could do that, but I sadly doubt it'll also be possible in Trauma Team, coming to the Wii on April 20, 2010 for $49.99.

Really looking forward to this title! Played the old Trauma Centre games and loved them!

Intresting to see what the new aspects will be

Good grief, this looks odd

No offence, but if I wanted to perform surgery, I'd do it in real life

and No, that is not the same as "Be a soldier in real life" with COD or "Have your own family, weirdo" on The Sims

Surgery is a specialist intrest

I'll reccomend it to my Anime-loving wannabe-doctor friend, though. He'll love this stuff

Wish I had a wii, I want to be like House.

Does it still have healing touch?

Only from the Escapist can I expect this title to appear on my RSS feed. Trauma Team eh?. Well I am one of those '86 kids that didn't have a Nintendo DS growing up so I have next to no idea about what all these titles are on about. Still, it does look interesting but that could be because of my default love for Medicine.

Should give it a try one day once it comes out.

Agree'd...

the gameplay sounds fun but with 6 different professions there may be to big a change in gameplay to make it fluent, but then again in the end it all comes down to Wii mote flailing, and the story looks fun if a bit over the top.

gameplay changes are great, and new graphics are a nice touch

but "all that medical drama you love"? im pretty sure that consists of the fan base of grey's anatomy. besides medical drama has been overdone as much as WW2 now, they could at least make it a comedy (considering we'll be treating diseases that could not possibly exist)

Zombie cancer anyone? Deactivating a nuclear bomb? Shooting aliens firing x-ray beams out of their radioactive supercores with your zappy gun?
