||If the popularity of shows like ER, Grey's Anatomy and House is anything to go by, people love medical drama. Considering this, the Trauma Center franchise makes a whole lot of sense, as players are tasked with saving lives as a variety of talented (and entirely fictional) doctors and surgeons...The latest entry in the Trauma Center series, Trauma Team, features six different medical professionals trying to stop a deadly and mysterious disease threatening the United States. With a nameless surgeon sentenced to 250 years of solitary confinement and a medical examiner that can hear the last words of the dead on her cell phone, Trauma Team can be pretty neat. But, several gameplay stumbling blocks and a few odd plot points keep this game from being as fantastic as it could have been...Trauma Team's greatest moments emerge in the surgery and first response chapters, because they're fast-paced, thrilling and they require a fair amount of skill and speed to complete (especially if you're going for a high ranking). I also enjoyed the forensics sections -- even if they were occasionally unintuitive -- because they presented intriguing scenarios and a few cool puzzles...Unfortunately, the diagnosis and endoscopy chapters leave something to be desired, making Trauma Team something of a mixed bag. Nothing in this medical drama is unplayable, but it's still disappointing that the rest of the game couldn't live up to the exhilarating potential of virtually performing surgery. That said, I enjoyed Trauma Team, despite the issues. But maybe I just really like saving lives.
