Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
Excellent game! If you're reading this then I am sure you've heard they put levels of difficulty in this game. It makes a world of difference to the gameplay and frustration level.

Additionally they've improved the tools as well (you don't have to draw circles to magnify) and this DS touch version is a bit more forgiving than the first one. The graphics are better (which would be expected anyway since its 2008 now). The colors are also easier on the eyes than the first one.

The first one I found an exercise in frustration (to say the least!). It was extremely unforgiving of tiny imperfections. Some may like that. I don't. I'm more of a casual gamer who plays video games for pure enjoyment and not for competition or to "beat" a game or what have you.

Had I not played the first one after I got this one I would have wondered what all the original reviews were about--since people complained that the game was so hard. This one is no cake walk (even on easy level!) but the touch screen responds SO SO SO much better than the first one...you'll really be able to tell the difference in game play. The first one still shows "wiggly" lines even when you really do draw straight ones.

I write my reviews mostly for the more casual gamer who games to escape and have fun. I really can't say if you are more of a hard core gamer or like insanely difficult games whether you'll like this version or not...but you can alter the difficulty to hard if you like so that may satisfy.

Overall HIGHLY recommended. I have put about 10 hours in and am on level 6 and am really enjoying myself. Its not easy---but it is rewarding enough so you can push yourself to play that operation just one more time.

Sidenote: The story is pretty good in this one. They aren't as sarcastic and it is even a bit romantic and funny!

5.0 out of 5 stars Fun game for older people January 3, 2009
By Lynna
Verified Purchase
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
Finally a game for older people that isn't about blowing up or shooting people to pieces! Being an older adult (45) there isn't a whole lot of games out there that are geared towards the older player.
Don't get me wrong I enjoy playing some of my kids games, but you can only take so much of ninja's and mermaids!
I really enjoyed the difficulty of this game, it's not all that easy even on the easy setting, but it's fun to play.
I really don't like all the dialouge. Way to much chit chat for me and as a previous reviewer said you have to go through all the chit chat every time you kill a patient. Yup, I've killed a few!
Overall a fun game to play.

4.0 out of 5 stars More of the same, and that is not a bad thing July 5, 2008
Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
When the original Trauma Center: Under the Knife debuted on the DS back in 2005, it ended up being somewhat of a surprise hit, thanks to it's addictive and challenging gameplay, and making some great uses of the DS' touch screen and stylus. Trauma Center: Under the Knife 2 offers up more of the same, and that isn't a bad thing either, as the formula still remains the same, and the game still amounts to being a fun and addictive challenge. Once again playing as surgeon Derek Stiles, you help out the sick or wounded as the storyline picks up where the last game left off. If you found the bioterrorism storyline from the first game a little ridiculous, you won't find the story here much better, but it's the gameplay that really makes the game as good as it is. Also, the game offers up three difficulty settings, compared to the first game's one, which is a big plus for Trauma Center newcomers. There's plenty of variety with all of the operations, and more operations to perform this time around as well. If there's any real downside to Trauma Center: Under the Knife 2, it's the same flaw that was with the first game: there's too much dialogue between the characters going on in between surgeries to carry the story along. This breaks up the otherwise fast paced gameplay, but doesn't quite detract from the overall experience. All in all, if you dug the first Trauma Center at all, you'll enjoy this sequel as well, and this is worth checking out for newcomers to the series as well.

3.0 out of 5 stars Fun But I Hit A Wall September 18, 2008
Verified Purchase
Fun: 3.0 out of 5 stars   
The game is not bad. Using the stylus is really easy to get used to and is quite fun. If you have played Trauma Center on the Wii, the transition is not too difficult. If you liked the Wii version, you will probably like this one.

The biggest problem I had was in the cut scenes. They seemed to take forever. Yes, it is fun to follow the story the first time through but after killing the patient, the save point is prior to the cut scene not after so if you hit a particularly tricky surgery, the frustration factor is exponentially worse because you have to keep going through the scenes. I will feel quite bad if there is a way to skip it via the instructions but it is neither intuitive nor obvious. Needless to say, I hit a particularly difficult surgery about a month after purchase (maybe 6-7 in) and after trying several times, I got too frustrated with the long scenes and have not played in some time.

Now that I am typing this, maybe I will give it another try on the train tomorrow. Who knows. Just be warned.

4.0 out of 5 stars "Stylus Trauma" March 6, 2009
Verified Purchase
Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
Trauma Center, this game is not for the faint of heart. During the beginning of the game you are literally operating on a patient. As the storyline continues the operations become harder. The storyline is very interesting and the levels of difficulty can make the game even harder. Be prepared to operate to save lives!

Pro's:
-Dramatic/interesting storyline.
-Sound effects of footsteps, gunshots, ambulance and character's reactions make this game more fun to read.
-fast-forward through text
-Can go back to any previous level and go straight to the operation.
-Lengthy amount of episodes keeps this game from being too "short"
-Use your stylus and your agility to keep under the clock!
-Viruses play like Atari
-Zap, stitch, drain, disinfect your way to victory.

Con's
- Screen can be very sensitive to stylus input, especially when opening a patient. A line can be drawn exactly on the printed line and still count as being "off".
-If you don't work quickly enough the game is prone to overload itself with "GUILT" infections. Game over!
-If you loose one level you cannot advance until that level is completed.
-Levels can be unforgiving and become frustrating.

This game is fast-paced action. You must keep on your toes in order to succeed to the next level. The storyline is as dramatic as the surgeries. Recommend for anyone who wants to play a more "synthetic" surgery game but with action!
