It's a great game, especially for people planning to become surgeions. It's only problem is that it puts you right into the frey without practice or tutorial surgeries, and when you make a mistake you get humiliated.
I rented this game because I loved its relative, Trauma Team, and was hoping to get more of the same.
More of the same it was, and that is a good thing. It only lacked my two favourite portions of Trauma Team - diagnostician and forensic investigation - but the surgeries were just the type I remember and enjoyed.
Gameplay was good, story was soap-opera-y (which works with these games). Surgeries occasionally frustrating. All-in-all, a good addition to the genre.
