Metachronos overall score = 8.5 / 10

Positive
# Awesome control scheme
# Gruesome injuries will tickle your fancy without grossing you out
# Challenging, priority-based puzzles
# Bring a friend to the operating table
# You can kill people

Negative
# Punishing difficulty
# Horrible dialogues
# Instructions not as clear as they could be
# Don't go searching Trauma Blood on google

A trauma center is a major league hospital, equipped with around-the-clock surgical staff, state-of-the-art equipment, and as much pain and carnage as a Texas Chain Saw family reunion. Normally you'd want to spend as much time in one as you'd want to spend covered in rats, so you wouldn't think the concept would make for a nice, leisurely video game. Yet Atlus has already turned it into three, and its latest, Trauma Center: New Blood, is the best of the bunch.
Just like the other operations in the series, New Blood is a surgery simulation that has you slicing into patients, excising their tumors, removing bullets, draining blood, and sowing them back up again, all with healthy doses of antibiotics and, most importantly, fun. But despite its presence on the family-friendly Wii, this is not an easy game.



When rendering wounds and body parts, New Blood doesn't go for brutal realism, but rather clarity and simplicity. For instance, the vessels you need to work on during the appendectomy are color-coded for your convenience, not your sense of anatomical correctness. Such an approach might've sterilized the game's injuries, if New Blood didn't go so over the top with some of them. In one operation, your patient's rib cage has shattered, and all the shards have embedded themselves in a major internal organ, which now looks like a frightened puffer fish, or a fully loaded voodoo doll. It's super nasty, even without realistic flesh textures or blood shooting across the screen and sticking to the camera. Besides, they have to leave something for the sequel.

New Blood sounds fine, though the solid voice acting is wasted on the boring dialogue. The music is entirely forgettable and the surgery sound effects are passable, though the only one that will really stick in your memory occurs when you "accidentally" push one of the aforementioned bone shards deeper into the organ, rather than pulling it free.

Trauma Center: New Blood is a successful operation. Even though the dialogue is insipid and some of the procedures are frustrating, this game combines signature surgical gameplay with a double dose of challenge and great cooperative play for a trip to the hospital you won't require painkillers to enjoy.
