Trauma Center: Second Opinion
Do you love ER? How about Scrubs? Well, if you had dreams of being a doctor but all those years of school were just too much, Nintendo has your back. Porting over one of the more popular DS games for the Wii sounds risky, but this game is well-done. However, can a DS game bring enough substance to the world of counsel gaming?
The first thing you notice when you put this game is the character interaction. Anyone familiar with Atlus is going to realize that they need to hire new writers. However, after you realize you don't care about the story-line and you get to the game-play, all that stupid writing will go right out the window. As for the game-play, well, get your Nunchuck ready!
The controls in this game are amazing. I loved it from the minute I started until the game was over. The use of the Wii Remote as tools to handle operations is so cool and interesting you will just fall into the mode of thinking of them as extensions of your hands, which is a good thing. The difficulty quickly gets up there, but you can handle it if you approach this game with a cool head and a steady hand. Thats not to say this is a perfect game though.
This is yet ANOTHER Wii game that delivers no multiplayer, and I for one am tired of it. This game begs for multiplayer, it seems like it is perfect for it and yet it is not there. Another thing I wish you could do is a different mode that would allow you to have more freedom. If this game had like a war mode, where the injuries would be random and your side would win or lose based on how quickly and accurately you could get the soldiers back out there, it would add so much replay value. Combine a mode like that with multiplayer, and this would be an A game.
For those of you looking for a unique experience on the Wii along with a really cool use of the Wii controller, rent this game. However, I would wait for the sequel to solve some of the problems and features missing before I would drop $50.
