In this true sequel to the first Trauma Center, you again pick up the scalpel as Dr. Derek Stiles, the now famous surgeon who, with the aid of Nurse Angie Thompson, eradicated the terrifying disease known as GUILT. The story picks up some time after that event, with Derek and Angie traveling the world to research new, obscure diseases and to save those unfortunate individuals stricken by these unusual sicknesses. The game is in all ways superior to the first, having improved graphics, an intuitive interface, the ability to change difficulty levels before any operation, as well as an engrossing story. The familiar tools remain, some with new abilities that will aid you as you fight the myriad of different conditions that threaten the lives of your patients. Unlike the previous game, which had you endlessly battling GUILT, you'll find a much more diverse assortment of operations this time around. They range from routine procedures to emergencies in which seconds mean the difference between life and death. At times, you must employ the mysterious, and now world-famous 'Healing Touch'. The 'Healing Touch' is an ability that Derek possesses that will slow the passage of time, allowing you to pull off the impossible to fight back the reaper. While a great game, this isn't one for children. There is a large amount of blood, dramatic injuries, as well as quite a bit of reading to do to advance the compelling story. However, for those mature enough to handle these things and enjoyed the first game, or even just like medical shows or 'puzzle' games, this is the title for you. Even if you don't care for those things, give it a test run and you may be surprised how fast you learn to like wielding that scalpel.
