When I reviewed the first iteration of Trauma Center
on the Nintendo DS, I said that it was the first game that truly felt like it couldn't have been done on any other platform. Now that there's a revision of it on the Wii, I guess I'm going to have to eat those words. Although Second Opinion
is essentially the same game as the DS's Under the Knife,
not only is it just as good, it's the definitive version.

In my book, the only thing worse than a mediocre RPG is a mediocre RPG that could have been great. This game is the perfect example of solid ideas that should have come together in an above-average experience, but got tripped up on its own misguided intentions. In this case, I blame the tragedy on an irrational devotion to its "dramatic" elements and an insane desire to tell an uninspired, undercooked tale regardless of the impact on the game as a whole.

from superb developer Sting could be described as the lovechild of the Saturn's seminal and the super-popular series, but to leave it at that would be doing both game and developers a disservice. Not only has Sting captured the essence of what makes those two games great, they've added their own unique spin to create something freshly original while being familiar enough for fans of the genre to jump right in.
