Weakest game in the Trauma series by far. Surgeries are very basic to compensate for a lack of the healing touch. The story and music are sub par, but that pales in comparison to the very lengthy and horrid text based missions (such as autopsies).
Autopsies tried very hard to act like the Ace Attorney series but didn't quite get it. They're largely guide-less, relying on searching every single inch of a room for one out of place detail that you can't actually see, followed up by pairing two pieces of evidence to come to a logical conclusion (about half the time the match up doesn't make sense). These parts are broken up by vague multiple choice questions with very vague answers..

"Trauma Team" is definitely the best game in the Trauma Center series. It tells a passably interesting story, boasts a great cast of likable, compelling characters, and offers us a wide range of gameplay variety, expanding far beyond the tasks and procedures presented in previous games. You still get to perform harrowing surgical procedures on mutilated accident victims, but the additions of other fields of medicine - such as endoscopy, orthopedics, and even crime scene investigation - make all the difference in the world. As a result, "Trauma Team" lasts a lot longer and is a lot less repetitive than "Trauma Center: Second Opinion" or "Trauma Center: New Blood". If you're planning on playing just one game in the Trauma Center series, play this one. It's the most fun, the most satisfying, and the most exciting.
