Reviews and Problems with Trauma Center: Under the Knife
Showing 1-9 of 9
Hand cramping, stressful frenzy of a game, not that there's anything wrong with that.

Summary: I've played probably 20 different Nintendo DS games to the finish and I have to say this is the most frustrating game I've ever played. I love the early missions and the creativity is awesome, but the controls are kinda blah.
Summary: I enjoy a challenge, but this game it way too hard. It's not fun to fail a mission more than tens times. Plus when you fail it offers you a chance to retry but you still have to go through all the talking again.(which is ANNOYING & BORING) This game could have been fun, but it's too hard.
Summary: Speed is more important than precision in Trauma Center: Under the Knife. It's not a game I want my surgeon to play. We thought the game was fun for awhile, then the speed and skill level required became overwhelming. The soap opera story line was more irritating than inspiring.
Summary: This game is mindnumbingly hard not because its a very challenging but rather its set up to fail.Most missions thrust you into a situation with little indication of what to do. As the patients vital signs drops, you frantically poke at your DS trying to think on what to do.
Summary: Why do developers make difficult games? Ok, so some gamers might like challenging (not mentally but mostly physically)games - so why not provide an easy mode?? This game has a unique concept. pretty good idea.
Summary: An odd mix of surgery, anime-style drama (lots of it, and it drags on) and odd magical interventions. Some surgeries require timely drawing of a pentagram on the surgical site for success - not sure which satan-worshiper (just kidding) decided that this is how surgery works, but it is a long way...
Summary: I first saw this game online and thought i would really enjoy it. The first few operations are fun but then it starts to get a bit unbelievable and quite frankly, tedious! Some of the operations are rather difficult as it is but you also have a silly nurse that keeps interrupting you.
