When Trauma Center came out a few years ago, many people liked the idea of helping others instead of killing them and blowing them up. Several other games have come out to emphasize helping the sick and/or injured, no matter if they are humans or animals.
The latest game to dive into the genre is Paws and Claws: Pet Vet. You start off with $600 and the ability to help small animals like hamsters and guinea pigs who have simple illness and injuries.
The first thing you have to do is run down to the city to buy medical supplies, then run back to your vet office to care for patients. In fact, the first few days is nothing more than running between your office (to care for those small rodents) and the pharmacist (to stock up on supplies).
When you do have to perform a procedure, the game will give you step by step instructions on what to do. This may turn off players looking for a trial and error medical game like Trauma Center. But the more casual gamers will like it.
Eventually (and I do mean eventually), you can get enough money to get a resident house where you care for more seriously injured or sick small mammals, and get more money for it.
After some time, you can take an exam to care for cats, then an exam to care for dogs and horses. But be wary; each exam costs money, and you will lose your cash if you fail the multiple choice questions. The quest here is to be able to care for horses.
But to get there, you will have to put in serious time and care for several dozens of animals. If this game doesn't exite you after thirty minutes, then it won't excite you at all - sent it back.
And you will need a steady hand to get the medicine or instrument in the right spot on the patient
But those who like caring for animals and who have a steady hand, can put up with repetitive music and god awful voice acting, should rent this game and give it a try to see if it's for them.
But Paws and Claws: Pet Resort is too repetitive for me to enjoy. SKIP IT
