    Not everyone is going to enjoy Surgeon Simulator’s comedically clunky gameplay. For those with a bit of patience, you’ll get a game that will make you laugh, groan and repeatedly murder your patients in a variety of malpractice-y ways.

    One of the most original games we saw last year on PC turns out as a very interesting iOS experience. If you can deal with what being a surgeon means, then go ahead.

    The gameplay is compelling enough to make you actually want to improve upon your technique. [June 2014, p.78]

    Surgeon Simulator is a good debut on iPad and proves that there is room for evolution and a market for more simulators. But the lack of content prevents it from shining.

    Surgeon Simulator on the iPad is mostly the same crazy, irritating and funny game that was on PC, with 2 more surgeries and a (if possible) worst control scheme.

    There are no reason for that 'Simulator' word in the title, given the fact that controls are clumsy on purpose in order to create the greatest possible mess (inside and outside your patient), but nevertheless this is a game that makes you laugh, and it's not a thing to be underestimated.

    You’ll probably love this though, especially if you see yourself enjoying a portable game of Operation, and although it’s not something I’d play repeatedly myself, it’s great for a touch of comic relief.

    Surgeon Simulator is full of gags and funny moments that are bound to make you laugh out loud, and the intentional wonky controls ramp up the crazy shenanigans. Bizarreness burns brightly in this silly sim, but its humor doesn't always translate into lasting fun.

    Not for the faint hearted or the squeamish, Surgeon Simulator is often awkward but there really isn't anything else like it.

    The controls too, while still endearingly clumsy, are perhaps streamlined to the point of losing the punch line thanks to the ability to aim your instruments with a tap. The result is a Surgeon Simulator that is easier to control, but loses some of its signature humor for it.

    Surgeon Simulator is worth considering depending on your expectations, and patience level.

    Surgeon Simulator is hilarious, fresh, and oddly satisfying, but it's just a little to slap dash and shallow for its own good.

    If you came here expecting the dramatic tension of the Trauma Centre games, you’re in for a disappointing time.

    What ever you give it, it is still a joke. Bossa Originally made the Tech Demo and had 48 hours to make it. This caused them sleep problemsWhat ever you give it, it is still a joke. Bossa Originally made the Tech Demo and had 48 hours to make it. This caused them sleep problems and didn't know if it was actually hilarious. They did find that out that it was hilarious. They released it on Steam. Boys started screaming like little girls. Then they release it on iPad. It is much easier on here. I got an A++ within a week I got this. I recommend this. Full Review »
