I thought Wii games were meant to be casual and accessible? Because, frankly, Trauma Centre: New Blood (out last week) is anything but. With a host of different surgical tools to use and even more medical conditions to encounter, remembering which does what is hard enough. But to do so while the patient's vitals are dropping at an alarming rate puts me into a state of panic I've rarely experienced in a game.
I'll even admit the Normal difficulty was too much for me. After losing the same patient a dozen times in succession, I felt no shame in knocking it down to Easy. Even then it took another six or so attempts to proceed. Hardcore gamers bemoaning the lack of challenging titles on the Wii would do well to check this out.
I think I need a breather, something to help me relax. That Resident Evil 5 demo is just what the doctor ordered.
