  • Summary: Keep your hands steady and your mind focused – this time around there’s a lot more on the line. Every cut of the scalpel, every pinch of the forceps, each and every second that ticks by is of the absolute greatest importance. If you think it's too much to handle alone, invite a friend to assist with the operation and work together to save patients from flat-lining. The adrenaline is pumping, lives are at stake, and only you can save the day. Have you got what it takes? At a remote hospital in Alaska, Dr. Markus Vaughn quietly toils, a surgeon who has forsaken the politics and power struggles of his former ward. He is content to use the power he has discovered within himself, the Healing Touch, to positively affect the lives of those in need. His partner is Valerie Blaylock, a promising young doctor eager to unlock her own dormant abilities. When the facility unexpectedly closes, they are forced to return to Concordia Medical Institute, where politics are more important than patient’s lives, and doctors more concerned with image than their ministration. There they are recruited into the government organization Caduceus, where they will learn of a conspiracy with dire ramifications, and their lives will be changed forever! For the first time in the series, work with a friend to race against the clock and save lives…success will require teamwork and communication – Every second counts. Depend on a brand new medical team for support and advice as you tackle new emergencies. [Atlus USA] Expand

  1. Atlus one-ups themselves with the first real sequel in the Trauma Center series.
  2. New Blood is a wonderful game that combines a compelling story, challenging gameplay with fully adjustable difficulty, and plenty of variety and longevity. It’s perfect for fans of Second Opinion, while the cooperative mode and optional tutorials make it easier for new players to learn.
  3. The best Trauma Center to date, we recognise that the game is ultra niche - so we've dropped our original score a little. [Dec 2008, p.73]
  4. 80
    It's fun, serious and silly by turns, and, dare I doom it by saying... possibly educational?
  5. This operation has its share of complications, but most of them are good ones.
  6. 73
    Like the previous entries in the series, it has a strong storyline and gripping, tight gameplay. But it's because of the subject matter at times that the player might be turned off.
  7. 50
    But New Blood's single-player experience has all of the frustration of the original without the promise of eventual success. It's all stick and no carrot.

    awesome game! one of my favorites for wii. i play it for hours, very addictive. you con choose the difficulty, from easy to hard (if you are a true gamer). I'm a med intern, and may be the medical facts aren't completely true, but i play for the fun, no for realism. Expand
