Trauma Team: New and Refreshing,
This review is from: Trauma Team - Nintendo Wii (Video Game)
Like all other games I have brought but didn't finish till now: this is another one. I have read and research the game but didn't have the guts and the confidence to finish it till now. This is why I'm not studying to be a doctor.
Trauma Team, the next game in line from the Trauma series by Atlus. Instead of just surgery and weird diseases, this game incorporates other medical professions and characters.
I'm sure all of you know the story already but lets recap: you play six different doctors or of related medical professions from a first-aid paramedic to a forensics investigator at Resurgam First Care or the Cumberland Institute of Forensic Medicine located in Portland,(Maine, Maryland, Oregon, take your pick). Each have their own personal story and issues they have to deal along with relative accidents and incidents. It all comes together when a new pandemic starts to affect the local population and Resurgam become overrun with patients with weird symptoms.
There are currently three level of difficulty from intern to specialist (I'm sticking to intern and it still is tough for me) along with rankings on operations unless you playing as the diagnostician or forensics investigator.
Spoiler: once you cleared the game the first time: bonuses will be sound-only bites for each character in a moment of their day-to-day life along with achievement medals for each doctor.
The few things I like about this game are the great voice acting, the animated scenes, the words of wisdom, and the story along with the humor from a certain doctor.
What I'm disppointed are the bonuses: can't it be more than just the sound bites, what about some extra video clips or complete animation sequences without having to complete an operation again?
Overall, the game was short but sweet. Certain old characters from the past will show up during the course of the game. All these new characters are on their own journey to find redemption, atonement, self-identity, reasons to live for along with saving lives as their profession requires them to do. As everyone has said before, Trauma Team continues the medical trade but with a more down to earth theme than the previous games. I agree because I've been a surgeon for too long, might as well look for a new position on Trauma Team.
