  1. Despite some really nit-picky problems, Trauma Center: Under the Knife 2 is a fun, frantic game that's worth trying. Regardless of what type of gamer you are, you owe it to yourself to try out the madness that is Trauma Center. Once you start playing, you'll be a hooked.
  2. While there hasn’t been a lot of evolution, the game boasts a nearly perfect presentation with the same challenging and addictive gameplay that made the original so great.
  3. While not terribly far removed from the original Under the Knife, this entry showcases some more complex surgeries while still being as user-friendly as DS games come.

    Once again, Atlus delivers an excellent operating game for DS.
  5. It's just that, if the first Trauma Center was a heart transplant, this is more like your fourth visit to the chiropractor: it feels great while you're there, but you can't help wondering if something a little more drastic and different from your previous check-up would improve your life even more.
  6. As far as the DS series goes this is a big leap. For Trauma Center as a whole? Nothing new. [Oct 2008, p.64]
  7. 50
    With procedures rarely clearly explained, frustration is quick to take over, and the time limit is just annoying. A normal operation has a time limit of 5 minutes, which doesn't seem so hard until you get stuck randomly away at the screen, trying to figure out what to do next.
