I bought this game for 12 dollars and I think I paid about $11.99 too much for it.
I couldn't get past the TUTORIAL without online assistance. The game gives you very little instruction or direction, and I still don't know what the actual plot is. After you go around healing some animals, the game is very repetitive. Moving around the map is tricky. The operations themselves are a little too gory for young kids, but the premise/skill level is a little too stupid for anybody older than 8.
I guess I had too high of expectations, hoping that either the instruction booklet or the tutorial would give you information you need to play the game.
I returned this game less than 5 hours after I bought it.
I played this through part of the tutorial part and when it had me kill viruses through the microscope and I assume this was on a sample of blood not the real blood - I had to stop playing it. Okay - I know it's just a game, but give me a break! This game insulted all the real veterinarians on the world by downplaying the years of experience and knowledge they need to do their job. This could have been a much better game but it was really bad.
I rented this game mainly for my girlfriend, and she loved the concept of it, but at one point the controls wouldn't allow you to do what you were suppose to, so she had to quit playing. I wouldn't waste your time renting this one.
