  1. With a super-easy Intern difficulty, the accessibility of the controls and the brilliance of the presentation, there's probably no better time for newcomers to jump in.
  2. The new gameplay types easily dispel the lack of variety that blighted previous games. [Aug 2010, p.116]
  3. With an improved co-op and five fresh gameplay styles It's a great new direction for the Trauma Center series and one of the year's best Wii games so far.
  4. Trauma Team is definitely the most accessible game in Trauma Center's history. With an overwhelming amount of variety, an awesome presentation, and solid gameplay, Trauma Team isn't just the best game in the series; it's also one of the best games on Wii.
  5. Trauma Team is a great new avenue for this series with more variety to the action and a story to actually care about. The campaign is a meaty 30 hours long with the option for co-op is most of the missions and additional difficulties to really test your skills.
  6. In the end, it seems that Trauma Team has something for everybody, whether you like to take your time, be rushed to save multiple lives, be on the investigative side of things, or just play some ol’ fashioned surgical gameplay.

It has a good amount of variety and it is long enough (about 20 hours) to feel like you got your money's worth out of it, without overstaying its welcome. The length is such that when you are at the end of the game, you feel like you are at the end of the game, and that it shouldn't go on beyond when it does. It is a nice change of pace from most other games, and the variety in internal gameplay helps to keep it fresh despite the odd repetitive or weaker section.
    I would give the game a rating of B-. While the game is not amazing, it is a welcome change of pace from pretty much everything else I ordinarily play, and the overall story and gameplay combine in a solid way. While it could be improved in many ways, particularly in reducing the repetition in some parts of the game and altering the failure mechanics, its length and overall diversity help to make it a worthy buy.

    High point: First responder. This section of the game is quite awesome, and it hits all the right marks.

    Low point: Endoscopy. This section is really repetitive, uses awkward controls, and just isn't that much fun.

    Final thought: This game is not only a medical simulation, but also an adventure game, an interesting choice of mix of genre.

This time they decided toThis is a very fun game, especially for those who have enjoyed the Trauma Center franchise on the Wii in past years. This time they decided to put 6 characters front and center with some new and unique gameplay elements. The surgeries are still where it is at for this franchise. They are easily the most enjoyable parts of the game. There are different elements to the surgeries with 4 out of the 6 characters here and there and they are different enough to mix things up. The issue is the new diagnoses and autopsy elements of the game. While unique, things just take away from what the game does best and that's the fast paced, steady-hand surgeries. These two new elements are very slow and kinda boring. The characters themselves are not but the gameplay is just hard to get through sometimes and can be a bit ambiguous at times with what they want you to do. The story is really good and the talent they brought in to voice these characters is probably the best collection of talent I've seen in a video game in years. It's fun to see how all these characters start to come together and why they are all related in the end. I enjoyed quite a bit with this game that, even for a big fan of the series, slipped under the radar quite a bit. For people looking to get the most out of a system that has been all but forgotten at this point, give this one a shot. And, if you can get through the very dull diagnoses and autopsies, then you'll love everything about this game. Full Review »
