Excerpt: Heart surgery and tumor removal might look easy from the morphine end, but how do you think the doctor feels? Well, you are about to find out! In Trauma Center: Under the Knife on the Nintendo DS, the patients lives are in your hands. In the year 2018, mankind has overcome a number of diseases once thought incurable. Cancer, AIDS, and TFTA are nearly things of the past. However, a new plague has emerged to threaten humanity.
Excerpt: The WMG was totally psyched about getting to review Trauma Center Under the Knife 2. Getting to play a doctor trying to save people from wounds in a war torn African country is an excellent idea. So some manner of anti-war preaching was expected. What was not expected was the doctor fighting Sin, and Guilt. They are acronyms for diseases but anyone with any intelligence draws a connection between real world sin, and guilt and the mythical diseases.
Excerpt: Game: Trauma Center: Under the Knife 2 Genre: Medical Simulation Platform: Nintendo DS When Trauma Center: Under the Knife 2 was announced earlier this year, I was pretty excited. I have been a fan of this series since its DS roots, and while I enjoyed the Wii installments in the franchise, I can’t say I was as attached the new characters as I was to Dr. Derek Stiles and his assistant, Nurse Angie.
Excerpt: It’s been almost three years since we saw the first Trauma Center game get a release on the Nintendo DS, and it was the first in it’s genre. It’s also been a whole three years since the original game, Under The Knife, received a proper, direct sequel on the system it originated on. When Trauma Center first launched, it provided players with a somewhat enjoyable experience that turned a player’s lounge room into an operating room.
Excerpt: There's still a learning curve for those new to the franchise, but returning veterans should be able to jump right into the action. Working too quickly is likely to lead to errors just as it should, but missed slices and injections feel like true blunders instead of something that can be blamed on faulty hit detection. As a result, tense operations feel challenging for all of the right reasons.
Summary: Atlus' fast-paced medical action is back, along with all of your favorite Trauma Center characters, numerous enhancements, new difficulty modes and new operations. Rejoin Derek and Angie as they deal with the unpredictable after effects of GUILT.
