    What it does is haphazardly simulate the thrill of ripping a man's heart out of his chest and replacing it with another one under the most ridiculous circumstances possible. It’s a joke of a game, sure, but for once the player gets to be in on it.

    Surgeon Simulator 2013 is hardly a simulation, but it makes medical malpractice an absolute delight.

    I ended up hooked, playing it for hours, and I'm almost certainly not done. I also made a video of myself performing brain surgery in a moving ambulance, which I can't link to in a Telegraph review because I have a mouth like a sailor.

    Surgeon Simulator 2013 is engagingly ludicrous. It’s neither a substitute for actual medical training, nor will it take anywhere near as long to complete, but it’s a good way to find out where you fall between squeamish and remorseless monster. Physician, heal thy self (and stay away from me).

    In the guise of surgeons, you will be asked to perform complex surgical operations without knowing how and what to do. A really fun game, that will snatch more than a laugh. Try it with friends and you will not regret.

    A likeable little game with the original idea proving definitely your both hands are left. If you approach the game with exaggeration, you won't regret your time nor your money. And that you are full of remorse because you murdered your patients in cold blood? Well, everyone has to start somehow. So grab your scalpel firmly and cut where it moves!

    Surgeon Simulator 2013 isn’t all bad and I’m surprised I liked it as much as I did. There is a bizarre sense of exploration you get from just goofing around and seeing what exactly you can do, and at times it feels like an odd sort of point and click adventure game, where every puzzle is to use a sharp object on a man’s face

No penises are in this game, and no obese women as far as I could tell. Expand

    This game is a good game to play for a good laugh at first, but as you start to get serious, you'll realize that half the tools that you haveThis game is a good game to play for a good laugh at first, but as you start to get serious, you'll realize that half the tools that you have are useless or to hard or dangerous to use, and when you drop an item, it's gone, including organs. Some of the operations are also difficult, mainly the kidney transplant. Easy at first, the left kidney is blocked by a vein that is impossible to cut or move, and it blocks your guys hand from reaching the kidney. There are also many glitches, such as tools leaving the environment, getting your hand stuck in the body or rib cage. The controls are also very difficult to use. For example, when you try to grab an object that is near another one, it will either glitch around and have a disco party in your hand, fly out, or your guy will simply grab the other object. If the developers improved controls and the operations, fixed the glitches, added new uses for the tools, and even make all items that can block your way removable, I would highly recommend this game.
