Too Difficult

A. Jacobs "this-girl-loves-the-80s", Amazon
6 August 2009
  • 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. The patients vitals drop way too quickly. And there's pretty much only 1 way to do each mission. I had to look at a walk through to get through every other mission.

Magical surgery and Anime sexism

Peter D. Higgins, Amazon
18 January 2009
  • 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 from reality.

You Have to be Fast

J. Sadler, Amazon
21 July 2008
  • 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. Unless you are a really good gamer, the diagnosis for this one is terminal.

Hand cramping, stressful frenzy of a game, not that there's anything wrong with that.

J. B. Schomberg, Amazon
14 May 2008
  • 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. Several times you'll find yourself redrawing the zoom, over & over & over as your patient (& patience) dies. Redrawing stitches over & over gets tedious fast.

Why? Why? Why?

Mun "Munlayt", Amazon
20 October 2007
  • 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. However, the fact that it needs too much focusing and it's really hard, makes the game unbearable to play any longer. I played it until the episode 3-6 or something. Thinking i will get into it more and it will get more fun. NO! It just gets more frustrating.

Trauma Center DS, will cause you to go to the ER.

I. E. Henry "archyteckie08", Amazon
8 July 2006
  • 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. The nurse, who assists you, gives you vague ideas on how and before you know it you've failed the mission. It would take me an average of 10-15 failures before I finally won a mission.

  • Summary: I thought I would like learning the skills necessary to complete the levels but I found them far too sensitive to operate and this frustrated me and put me off this game.

Disappointing

M. L. Preece, amazon.co.uk
29 January 2008
  • 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. If you're expecting a lifelike game with real illnesses then you'll be disappointed.

Short-lived

Louis Vallance "fs geek", amazon.co.uk
24 June 2007
  • Summary: At first, I thought that I was buying a game where you played the cool doctor who all the girls fancied who had just come out of med school, and was a really good surgeon. I thought that the game would consist of everyday procedures that reflected real life surgory. I was mistaken. Don't get me wrong, the first few operations were really fun and I thought that I was onto a winner, but as the game progressed, I realised how silly it was.
