I have bought most, if not all, of the Legacy Interactive Emergency Room Games. I also bought the first and second Veterinary Emergency Room games. I think that Legacy started out well, but each succeeding game has been dumbed down. The first and second Emergency Room games had different staff in each room, each with different personalities. After that, the succeding games dispensed with this, and had the same type of staff member in each type of room. Too bad--the personality types reminded me of real situations in real emergency rooms.

In ER, the types of medical skills have also been dumbed down. In earlier games, you had to place the right diagnostic instrument on the right part of the patient. If you did too many tests, the chief of service would castigate you for wasting money. Again like real medicine. The nurses and technicians--despite their attitudes--were the most helpful individuals when you were in a tight spot. Well so much for reminising about the previous Emergency Room games.

ER is not like those games. You do not realy use of learn much about real medicine. You do not even really learn much about what is wrong with your patient. It is more about smoozing with other ER staff and making sure that you do not get too low on hygeine or nutrition points. Treatment is completely nonspecific. As far as actual medical practice is concerned, you might as well be playing Pong. It looks as if someone was trying to emulate the Sims on the cheap.

The graphics are not as good as the ones on Emergency Room Disaster Strikes, or Veterinary Emergency Room. If truth be told, I much preferred the earliest truly functional Emergency Game, Emergency Room II. Even though there was not as much animation, the experience was more realistic.

i absolutely loved this game. i am obsessed with the ER show and i really liked this game. Its not complicated at all, but definitely kept me not wanting to stop playing it.

It is one of the games, though that is similiar to the csi/law and order series in that its only a set number of missions you can play, unlike the sims or rollercoastertycoon/etc. There are enough missions to keep you going for a while though and its really fun to try and become a good doctor and then get your own med students.

you definitely should download the patch and the game works perfectly fine after that.(otherwise it gradually runs slower and slower).

overall, i totally love this game. its challenging, but easy to learn and it kept me interesting and kept me wanting to get better as a doctor and earn the specialty personality traits. you can even form relationships with other doctors and kiss them and talk or you can just focus totally on getting your skills way up there. either way, if you love the show, youll love the game!!

When I saw ads for this game I was really excited because I am such a big fan of the show. Overall, the game was pretty good. At first it was very addicting, I played it for like 4 hours straight. After that it started to get kind of redundant. I also found it to be really easy, and quite short. It only took me a few days to beat the whole game. It is very similar to the Sims, so if you like that you will like this game.

This game would be fun if you could play it for any period of time. The amount of bugs is astounding. I purchased this game last year and there is still no fix for the many problems despite complaints to their technical support. If you look on Legacy Interactive's tech support forum for this game( [...] ), you will see how many problems there are and how they have been ignored. This is a complete waste of money.

This is not a fun game to play. You basically just run around a hospital doing random boring tasks. Also, don't be fooled by it being called "ER" and being made by Legacy... YOU DON'T DO ANY MEDICAL PROCEDURES AT ALL; there is nothing scientific about the game. Well, at least in the first few levels; I uninstalled it after that.

If you are a huge ER fan and aren't interested in the medical aspect of the show somehow, then perhaps you might want to buy it. Otherwise, don't waste your time or money.

A really fun game, and not to mention that Noah Wyle's voice and likeness is really hot!

The game is a bit short, but it is still fun! Glad I bought it.

It's not so much a medical game as it is a simulation game.

I recommend this game to people who like the show, and to gamers who like simulation games.

ER, the official game from the television show ER is a game that offers you the chance to work in the Emergency Department of the hospital, starting as an intern and working your way up the ranks.

The game starts with you deciding what you, as the doctor should look like, you can only decide your hair colour, eye colour, scrub colour (your clothes), what pre-made head you would like and if you want to wear a jacket or not. There aren't many available "looks" you can choose but the amount available is good.

You then get the option to play the tutuorial, although helpful to begin with it leaves out some important information that you have to work out, so if you didnt play it, you could work it out.

The main aim of the game is to help the many patients who fill the waiting room. You as the doctor walk over to the patient, diagnosis them (which will make them become a colour depending on how sick they are, there are 10 levels of sickness, level 1 is bright green and is not sick as all, these patients take only a small amount of time to heal, the colour changed to yellow and then to level 10 which is flashing red, if your patient is level 10 they die.) Once the patient is diagnosed they are moved into one of the available beds in different rooms. Once the patient is in bed you just click on the patient and you start to heal them. This was the frustrating part as you can't actually heal them yourself. Once healed the patient walks out of the hospital and you start the process again.
