Game Storyline
Sure, we've all imagined what it would be like to become a doctor. Years of medical school, residency, and clinic duty eventually pay off in a rewarding position saving people's lives. Or, you could skip all that and just put in a few hours after dinner. Trauma Center puts you in the position of having to make life or death choices at the operating table.

Heart surgery and tumor removal might look easy from the morphine end, but how do you think the doctor feels? Well, you're going to find out! In Trauma Center, patients' lives are in your hands. You'll experience all the drama we've come to expect from the medical field. So go ahead, toss on some scrubs and step into the O.R.--it's time to play doctor.

Gameplay
Trauma Center: Second Opinion, is a robust "Wii-make" of the game "Under the Knife," and features a totally revamped medical toolkit that includes scalpels, forceps, defibrillator paddles, syringes, and more--all designed specifically for use with the Wii Remote.

Other game features include new graphics and animation, new and remixed musical themes, new surgical implements (including a defibrillator), and operation types, a second playable character with all-new missions, multiple difficulty modes for gamers of all skill levels, and a revised control system that takes full advantage of the revolutionary Wii Remote.

It's refreshing to see a different type of game like this compared to all the same old fighting, racing, war, & rpg games, etc. Trauma Center Second Opinion puts you right in the hands of a surgeon where you control the fate of your patients and its quite a rush! The controls and game is easy to get used to and the storyline and gameplay is very fun. My only complaint would be they should've had voice overs for everything instead of having to read all the dialogue. Just think how even more real it would've felt with people talking to you about the patient, diagnosis, what instruments you need, etc. Hopefully they'll make another sequel and incorporate that feature. This original game is fun, addicting, and very informative. You'll feel like a doctor...time to play some more Trauma Center and then watch Grey's Anatomy.

Worth every cent, a must own for the Wii, the wii controller works great and makes much more sense than with any other controller cause this feels like what a real surgeon would do since you have to be precise and accurate.

Remember the Operation game of your youth? Trauma Center is like an online, graphic version of that - with puzzles, too. You need fast fingers and a sharp mind to save your patients.

You're in the future, and you begin with simple operations. Repairing broken bones, stitching up cuts. You use your Wii controller in the right hand to point at the various items, and the nunchuck in your left to select the tools. It's really quite intuitive, although it requires you to hold the controller like a pencil for pinpoint accuracy, and this can get really tough on your hand, really quickly. You need a super steady hand to pull off some of the moves.

Then the game goes into futuristic mode and now you are trying to zap moving creatures that are crawling around inside people. There isn't any blood or gore - even "drain the blood" only has fuzzy red areas. Parents don't have to worry at all about upsetting young tykes from this point of view. Even I, who am normally squeamish about blood, didn't have any issues here. The worst was perhaps using the scalpel to slice open the flesh and see it open up into a red wound. But again, it was very tame, just a red inside on a tan body.

The issue for me is that I would have loved for the game to be more realistic from a medical point of view. They love throwing around complex words in this game, to give it a hospital feel, but then they get some basic anatomy wrong that even I realize! Part of the fun of watching shows like CSI is that you are learning something as you go. Here, you are getting inaccurate information, which is a real shame.

Also, while the realistic episodes such as "get the arm bones back together" are very satisfying, it's much more odd when you're tracking down moving "enemy objects" inside a person.

For those of you who played Trauma Center on the DS, this game is the same old same old, but still worth the buy for you can play it on a full size tv. For those of you who have not played the game the game is one of the most unique and challenging games i have ever played. As one can tell from the pictures you are a surgeon, who does everything from remove glass to fighting wierd bug things that live inside people. The game is a great port from the DS and the Wiimote controls great in this game. I highly recommend this game.

I was unfortunate never to get around to the cult Nintendo DS classic, Trauma Center: Under The Knife. The surgery simulation game received rave reviews and dried up from store shelves, eventually being re-released this summer due to consumer demand. Needless to say, the DS title was quite a hit with the well-informed and adventurous crowd. It was a surprise to see Atlus, a rare Nintendo supporter, remake the game for the new Wii console. Trauma Center: Second Opinion captures the intensity of the original but makes everything more intuitive and thus more fun to play.

In Trauma Center: Second Opinion, you're the newly-appointed Dr. Derek Stiles. Surrounded by his surgeon cohorts and assistants, Derek's the man in charge of some serious surgeries and it's up to you to save dozens of citizens from all sorts of medical issues, including death. Eventually the story gets a little deeper, as Derek discovers a special ability within himself and a "medical terrorism" plot is discovered. Though the story is a little on the hokey side, it's always intense and throws in a bit of medical humor and terminology that med students, doctors, and generally intelligent players will find humorous and interesting. The story seems to be an embodiment of the reality of the game; what's going on around you doesn't matter as much as what's going on in the OR on the operating table.

Trauma Center wastes little time before throwing you into your first surgery; a simple procedure on a man whose motorcycle accident resulted in glass shards sticking out of his arm. This surgery goes quickly, as you stitch up and disinfect cuts, use the trusty forceps to pull out shards of glass, and bandage incisions.
