Summary: Bought this for nostaligia reason but hopeing with a better system the bugs will go out. The game itself is awesome but the touch screen portion always seems a little off for example in a time critical cal operation were you need a forcep even though you try grabing the blood clots it won't recongnize and give a false statement thereby wasting time and potentially failing the mission. This gets very frustrating and one loses the fun of the game.
Summary: Highly addictive and challenging game. Not quite as fun as the first game, but it has sucked hours of my life away. On second thought unless you want to get a bedsore from playing this game so long that you lose all feeling in your lower extremetities maybe you shouldn't buy it. But if you do, well go for it and remember to change positions often.
Summary: Minigames. This game, frankly, hasn't aged all that well. Although, the surgical games are pretty fun, many are very difficult and will result in frequently replays. This wouldn't be that much of a problem were it not for the fact that one needs to replay the text sections just to get back to the minigames. I found myself frequently sitting through the same story sections while jamming on the buttons to get through. Too bad I couldn't skip through these sections.
Summary: Pros: * Very good story, touching and has the power to drag you in. * Good chance to experience the life of a surgeon, include all kinds of operations, treating tumor, fighting GUILT, suture traumas... * Provide a long and joyful play time, about 15 hours for a rookie. Cons: * The difficulty of the late several levels are too hard, and the time for one operation is very long (at least 10 min), one mistake made, you have to restart from the beginning...
