Summary: I bought the game looking for a Trauma Center type game, but all I found was a medical soap opera. The operations are boring... VERY boring, and it took me a good hour into the game to get my first operation. This is mainly a game with all story, no interactivity besides walking around the hospital and poking people to talk to them. And the characters always use -san after someones name. It's generally annoying.
Summary: I bought this game believing that it would allow me to examine patients and perform surgery... how naive of me. Unfortunately, this game is nothing more than a misogynistic soap opera. Notice the teen rating. This can't possibly be for the gore of surgery, since there is very little of that in the game. Here are the things I don't like about the game: 1. Almost no surgery! In 3 "days" in the game (about 4-5 hours of play), I have had only one patient.
