Trauma Center’s twisted tale is told through text-driven dialogue between a bizarre cast of anime-inspired characters. Along the journey you’ll uncover the mysteries of a terrorist-engineered virus, learn the "healing touch" - a medically unrealistic, but life saving technique - and even adapt your surgical skills to defuse a bomb.
Explaining all this often requires you to slog through too much text, but this is more a testament to how much fun the actual gameplay is than a knock against the narrative. It's not that the story is bad; it's just that the surgeries are so addictive that you’ll be anxious to scrub back in to the O.R. and pick up your scalpel/stylus. If a lack of new and addictive gaming content is what ails you, we prescribe this satisfying surgical sim. Pick it up and call us in the morning.
