Stitch ... and a miss.

As a future medical professional, Trauma Center has always appealed to me because of the nearly-real simulations -- devilhand godmodding powers totally notwithstanding.

But an even bigger part of what makes Trauma Center, for me, is the characters.

Five hours into the game, I shut it off, placed it in the sleeve, and am currently awaiting daylight so that I can send it back to GameFly.

Dr. Vaughn and Dr. Blaylock aren't strong enough characters, at least to me, to carry the series. While I appreciated that I could play a female surgeon if I so desired, neither one was very well-played by their actor and they didn't have the same charm as Angie and Derek. The supporting characters were equally bland.

As a surgery sim -- and as a concept -- the Trauma Center series is fantastic. It's utilized the functionality of the Nintendo DS and now the Wii spectacularly, but it's just not enough.

I've hung on to this title because my wife likes to play it. My only gripe is the fact that you have to tap through hundreds of lines of speech. It is SOOOOOOO annoying. Why can't nintendo do voice overs. I HATE that. Otherwise a solid non-traditional game.

Well, let me start by saying that if you liked the DS Trauma Center, you may like this one. It's very similar in gameplay, extremely similar. I loved the DS version, but I wasn't able to get into this one due to me having a difficult time using the wiimote. It felt that the game was being a bit too precise.
