My problem with the Trauma Center games is that they're kind of a one-trick pony. It's a pretty good trick, and not one that other games have emulated, so they've gotten away with it. But I never really thought that pure surgery was enough to carry a whole game; in fact, I often find myself bored l...

Atlus announced the price point for Trauma Team today, and we believe it improves the game's retail prognosis: It's $39.99. That's less than the retail price of most Wii games for a game with six different, interesting modes of play. Trauma Team will be out May 18. To mark the announcement, Atlus...

The publisher just released a new trailer focusing on that mode, so you can witness the medical crime-solving gameplay for yourself.

As a result, he's totally going to die -- unless you can save him. Charlie won Atlus's Trauma Team contest, which awarded him the "prize" of becomin...

We'll be in the waiting room a bit longer before we're allowed to meet with the Trauma Team. Atlus announced a delay from the game's original April 20 date to May 18. In the meantime, in lieu of an old magazine, why not watch this video about Trauma Team's orthopedics mode? It's all about bones -...

In the world of Trauma Team, however, to perform an endoscopy you have to summon the power of the "eight million gods tha...

Atlus has introduced the full compliment of the six staffers that make up its upcoming Trauma Team. I asked my wife, an actual doctor, to provide me with some insight on each specialty.

Trauma Center changed the world a little bit, and we didn't even notice. Sure, there were surgery games before on the PC, but Trauma Center was the first really popular surgery-game franchise.
