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!
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.
-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.
- 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!

Great game, very true to the Trauma Center franchise. The controls are a little difficult at times to switch due to limitations on the DS, but I thoroughly enjoyed going through... Read morePublished 9 months ago by Jay
