Summary: Hi: The game is great!!. When you start you must perform complex movements to avoid harming the patient. It requires a lot of patience but also skill to advance, especially when the timer reaches its limit. Highly recommended to play with friends.
Summary: I bought this game for my girlfriend who is interested in going into the medical field and she loves it! I think it is a great idea. the story of the game is kind of cheesy but none the less you get to perform life like surgeries. I bought it for $12 plus shipping and i felt like i got a great deal. I would recommend this to anyone who is into medical stuff like TV shows or what not.
Summary: Trauma Center: Second Opinion on the Wii is actually a remake of the first Trauma Center game on the DS just with extra side stories. The game plays a lot better than the DS version simply because all of the cuts and surgery applications are more fun to act out with a Wiimote. The game is super unique and crazy to play. The only thing thats a pain is when you have to draw out a star for the "healing touch" using the Wiimote.
Summary: This game is fun, fun, fun. Yes, the cut-scenes can be silly, and yes, voice acting would have been great, BUT the main focus of the game is performing surgery, and performing surgery is exceptional. Why, you ask? Because the controls are perfect. Shows you what the Wii is capable of. On the downside, I didn't give it a perfect rating because the game is a little on the short side. I beat it in about 8 hours and you could probably beat it in 6 if you were good.

Summary: Remember the Operation game of your youth? Trauma Center is like an online, graphic version of that - with puzzles, too. You need fast fingers and a sharp mind to save your patients. You're in the future, and you begin with simple operations. Repairing broken bones, stitching up cuts. You use your Wii controller in the right hand to point at the various items, and the nunchuck in your left to select the tools.
Summary: Recommendation: Rent Trauma Center: Second Opinion puts the tools of a surgeon into your hands via the wii-mote and nunchuck. The controls translate fairly well in this game. The Wii-mote is used as your tool, while the nunchuck analog stick lets you select from your arsenal of equipment. You'll need a steady hand to be really good at this game. I found it hard to get anything above a C rating, even on easy.
Summary: I was unfortunate never to get around to the cult Nintendo DS classic, Trauma Center: Under The Knife. The surgery simulation game received rave reviews and dried up from store shelves, eventually being re-released this summer due to consumer demand. Needless to say, the DS title was quite a hit with the well-informed and adventurous crowd. It was a surprise to see Atlus, a rare Nintendo supporter, remake the game for the new Wii console.
