I wish I could claim some mastery over this topsy-turvy classic starring elf boy who saves princess. Predictable, right?

Finally Broke My Crowdfunding Rule

Posted on 01/12/15
I've had a long-standing rule to avoid getting involved in any sort of crowdfunded activities.  I didn't donate to Shadowrun or Wasteland, but I did buy and enjoy both of them (I'm plugging both of those games right now, just so you know they're good).  I haven't...

What do these ratings mean?

The Good: Updated game play, better voice acting, deeper story, same fun game play

The Bad: Too similar to other games, some operations are extremely frustrating, starts to get boring about two-thirds through

I was really hoping New Blood was more than what it is. I expected a full on sequel but instead it's like Trauma Center 1.5 instead of 2. While Second Opinion was just an update of the DS game New Blood is supposed to be what happened ten years after that. You play two surgeons named Markus Vaughn and Valerie Blaylock. It is ten years after the GUILT incident and a new disease arises known as Stigma. This is where NB disappointed me. It felt way too much like the other games in all aspects. After about half way through treating regular injuries you have to start battling Stigma and the game just starts to get boring after awhile. While there is a slight graphical update, better voice acting, and a deeper story it doesn't help much.

The game still has such difficult operations that it makes you want to stop playing the game. It feels like Atlus never play tests these games since they feel almost impossible to finish right. I'm hoping Atlus comes out with a mature rated sequel that is more realistic. I want to see real gore and REALLY feel like I'm performing on a human and not an anime character. If you like the other games you can pass if you want but you should pick this version up.
