Operate Now Heart Surgery 2 Game

Everyone’s a Doctor

There was a time when surgery went on strictly behind the swinging doors of an operating theatre and the surgical (and general medical) profession was relatively guarded and mysterious. With all of the TV-based medical dramas over the years, however, as well as alarmingly frequent media coverage of the inner workings of hospitals, we think that we’re more in the know than ever about various medical procedures. Quoting Web MD to your GP and expecting them to take your 3 minutes of careful research on the internet over their decades of medical experience isn’t going to fly, though, since all that doctoring malarkey should be left to people that have had the appropriate training. The same is true of the surgical profession, but this doesn’t mean that we can’t play numerous surgery simulator games like Amateur Surgeon 2 or Operate Now! Heart Surgery, does it? It most certainly does not, and after playing the latter of the two aforementioned games, I had a few notes to jot down as to just how the sequel of the game could be a better experience for players all round.

Operate Now Heart Surgery 2 – Ideas about improvements and features in a potential sequel

Linear is So Last Year

The first issue I had with the original Operate Now! Heart Surgery is the fact that the game is so incredibly linear. I’m not talking about the procedures themselves here (which are linear, but there isn’t much room for swapping the different stages of heart surgery about without causing instantaneous death), but a combination of factors that coalesce to form one, overly-straightforward game that is one step short of being mind-numbing. The first factor is the length of the game, which stands at one procedure long: this is too short even for a flash game. Even though you can play through the game in an increased difficulty mode, I’d like to see multiple patients n the game that we can operate on, including procedures of increased complexity instead of the same procedure with slightly increased difficulty.

On top of this, the game holds your hand too much through the procedures, which detracts from the thrill of saving a patient because you’re not doing it by yourself. One initial tutorial level would be fine and then we should be left to fend for ourselves.

Unforgiving

The title of this section is actually something that this game is not, since the only way you can kill a patient is if you are stupid enough to not read the instructions as to which tool to use or if you hack away blindfolded at the patient until the long, unbroken beep of the heart monitor sounds. Even 50% of the procedures are done for you, with straight lines being drawn by the computer, stitches only requiring a click of the mouse, and no real skill involved in pretty much anything you do. The game needs to embrace change in the form of slightly more difficult and skill-demanding procedures such as having to actually make a stitching motion when suturing the wounds as is the case in Amateur Surgeon. The game generally needs a bit of toughening up and to be more punishing of patient’s errors as well.

Image Conscious

I’m the last person to condone the ‘looks are everything’ sentiment when it comes to games, since there are games out there that are entertaining yet simplistic in their graphical style. The trouble is, it cannot be denied that if a game has the full package, i.e. incredible gameplay and wonderful graphics, then that game becomes instantly more likeable in the eyes of the player than if it had second-rate graphics. In all honesty, even though the menus and the general layout of the game is fairly professional, the general style and atmosphere of the game is a little amateurish. I’m referring mainly to the block colours and generally first-day-of-flash-school look of the whole thing (particularly the illustration), and the lack of distinctive style in general. With games like Dark Cut 2 possessing such an unmistakable and highly-refined aesthetic, Operate Now! Heart Surgery 2 seriously needs a bit of a makeover.
