  1. I respect the innovation found here, but I wish the game were a little more forgiving. [Nov 2005, p.160]
  2. It's a good idea, well measured and put together. Its problems are spiking difficulty and mechanical obstinacy.
  3. This game will manage to frustrate players within a relatively short amount of time. Repetition and some really difficult operations will be more than enough to push any gamer away.

    Its extensive campaign is likely to be played and thoroughly enjoyed at least once, but any replayability has been sabotaged by its own shortcomings: the bugs, the enforced narrative and the lack of rewards.
  5. A fun and original game, but I wish they cut back on the difficulty level.

    Trauma Centre is much like any other medical procedure - it feels fine until the anaesthetic wears off.
  7. 69
    If you find yourself in a charitable frame of mind, and can overlook the ridiculous story, one-dimensional characters, and hackneyed story elements, Trauma Center is a great twitch-action game.
