Summary: stingstungme has about wrapped it up in a nutshell. Do Not Buy This Game! Boring, repetitive puzzles, while hunt/peck trail/error to attempt to figure out/work them. NOT suitable for children! Extremely disappointed all the way around. Can see now why BFG only offered it as an also-ran, that in itself should have set off alarms.
Summary: I for one am kind of tired over the medical based tm games but how could I say no to House. A few reasons not to buy this game. 1. No voice work. You have to read all of their conversations. They don't even have the decency to put the name of the person talking. Sometimes, I had no clue who was saying what especially if they were in the same scene. 2. No tutorial. You just jump straight in. Click until something happens. 3. Diagnosis? I don't think so.
Summary: With a promised release date last spring but with much "fine tuning" during the summer, this game should be a fall blockbuster, right? Well, to this somewhat experienced gamer, it's just a "bust." I do like the caricatures of the real TV cast members, and House's wit and sarcasm are on good display (but you have to READ his comments and just IMAGINE the voice inflections because there isn't any speaking interaction). The cursors are cartoonish.
Summary: Wow...I was so excited to play this. I have never played a more simplistic game. It's like they designed it for little kids. Sliding a little arrow with my mouse to put a needle in a patients arm? Just no. No challenge going on here.
Summary: I had to give this game a star because I couldn't post a review if I didn't. That being said, I guess the sarcastic remarks and graphics could carry a star. Maybe. This game is the biggest let down yet. I waited all year for this to come out, and well, it is just horrible. The only things good are the graphics and cute dialogue, and the dialogue was really long. I imagine the entire game was based on the dialogue of House and his sarcasm.
Summary: This is a game that I have been anticipating. Besides being a massive fan of the TV series, I haven’t been able to find any medical-based games that have been remotely satisfying. Upon purchase and play, I find myself feeling a little – okay, a lot – deflated. Gameplay of House M.D. is structured like an adventure game without the hunting for inventory items for solving mysteries . There are 5 cases overall.
Summary: Hate is such a strong word. But I really really disliked playing this game. I watch the 'House' series and really enjoy it. I love Dr. House's brash sense of humor, the constant twists and turns of the diagnosis and the personal stories of each individual doctor. Believe me, I was very excited for this game and I tried my hardest to get into it. All that being said, let me get to the pros and cons. I really liked the artwork.
