Trauma Center: Under the Knife (DS)


Trauma Center: Under the Knife is yet another in a recent deluge of anime-inspired adventure games for the Nintendo DS. In this one, you play yet another spiky-haired hero imbued with special powers on a quest to save the world. What's the hook? This...

Trauma Center: Under the Knife Review


A review of the surgery simulator.

Trauma Center: Under the Knife is both challenging and fun. Kind of like Operation but without the goofy naked white guy. So go get this game you're afraid of real blood or don't want to spend hours and hours in med school only just to become a...

Trauma Center: Under the Knife 2 R..


Paging Dr. Stiles...

Variety of operations, strategic gameplay, engrossing story

Occasional touchscreen difficulties, over-dramatic

Simulation games are a dime-a-dozen on Nintendo's handheld. None of them have been able to match the series' masterful blend of storytelling, engrossing gameplay, and touchscreen interaction. Trauma Center was one of the original sleeper hits for the...

Trauma Center: Under the Knife 2


Trauma Center 2 is the same game we fell in love with on the DS, but with much better gameplay. If that doesn't already have you running to pick up a copy, let me explain.

Trauma Center 2 upgrades the gameplay of the original, but the story takes a step back. Still, it’' hard not to love Trauma Center 2. Atlus took the issues fans of the original DS title complained about, fixed them, and then tuned them up so

Trauma Center: Under the Knife 2 Nintendo DS Review


Under the Knife 2 lets you play as a virtual Doogie Howser, as you slice open patients, fix broken bones, drain tumors, cure diseases and bandage wounds using the system's touch screen. Simply select your instrument (scalpel, laser, drain, antibiotic...

Same addictive operating gameplay, nurse Angie's hot, it takes place in Africa (hey, Africa's hot), you can change difficulty levels before each operation, excellent touch screen controls

Anti-war story gets preachy, cut scenes drag on, no one takes Viagra

Slap on some gloves, put on your scrubs and save lives in Atlus's Trauma Center: Under the Knife 2. Armed with gallons of antibiotic gel, his trusty scalpel and a host of other goodies, Dr. Derek Stiles and his assistant, the gorgeous Nurse Angie leave...

Trauma Center: Under the Knife 2


The second-most fun way to play doctor.

Great use of stylus controls; enjoyable story; good difficulty curve

Long cut-scenes; repetitive music

Trauma Center: Under the Knife 2


GUILT is back… and so is everything else.

Entertaining script ; Snazzy new music ; Core gameplay is still great

You've seen and played it all before ; Retracts important new features and adds none of its own ; New GUILT are crammed into the end of the game

I just ordered this from Amazon for $15.... I think it'll be worth that. One annoyance - I skimmed this review and noted that microphone blowing is used in one of the missions - and my microphone is broken. I wish they would stop that whole blowing...

Trauma Center: Under the Knife - DS review at Thunderbolt Games


I have always had an interest in medical dramas; Casualty, Holby City, ER, and lately House (I'd include Scrubs, but it'd be a funny sort of drama). And now with the NDS and its touchscreen, I could actually play my part in one. The idea of Trauma...

Trauma Center: Under the Knife


The Nintendo DS has several unique features that allow savvy game developers to create experiences that simply aren't possible on other devices. Most of these features revolve around the touch screen and the stylus input, which is quicker, more...

Product Specifications

The internal warfare plaguing the people of this country for over a decade has finally come to an end. However, they continue to struggle with attacks by guerilla militants, land mines, and refugees en masse. Still, the country is slowly walking down the path toward peace. Other countries have begun sending aid to Costigar, helping to establish medical institutions. But, the number of doctors needed to staff those facilities has been hopelessly insufficient. Now, a legendary doctor has come to Zakara, one of the many refugee camps. In these harsh lands that are ill equipped for providing medical care, he will find hope in new allies. However, a deadly disease thought to have been eradicated once again looms on the horizon.
