Summary: This game has a alot of text. But that is what I like. There are multiple endings , so it has alot of replay value. There are surgies but i like creating a web of relationships and seeing what will happen. If you want straight surgery than this is not what you want but if you like a bit of both, try life signs. I loved it. But i also loved Hotel dusk and that game was loaded with text.
Summary: Unlike a similar game "Trauma Center", Lifesigns is not a puzzle game where you constantly do surgery over and over, it is an adventure game where you talk to patients, form relationships with coworkers and other things that actually form a storyline. Yes the story may seem juvenile at first, and the translation is not perfect, but after one day I was hooked. The surgery is not as gimmicky as Trauma Center, and seems far more realistic.
Summary: Check out Professor Sawai, you'll see what I mean. First of all: this is not Trauma Center. This is not Phoenix Wright. The series started in Japan way before the former, and though it's an adventure game, the feel is entirely different to the latter. Despite the soap-operaish storyline, this is ultimately more realistic than either game.
