Details:

Set in Hope Hospital, Bay Dr Stiles must learn to cope under pressure as he gets to grip with basic surgery. After getting a few operations under his belt his mentors realise Dr Stiles is no ordinary doctor, but possesses a gift known in medical circles as the ‘Healing Touch’, a skill only possessed by a few top doctors, this special ability allows you to slow down time and perform miracles. Players must now utilise all the speed and concentration they can muster to master Stiles’ fantastic ability and save lives.

As rumours of his talent spread, Dr Stiles is scouted by Caduceus, an arm of the World Health Organisation responsible for being at the forefront of modern medicine and disease prevention. He is asked to help combat and eradicate diseases such as GUILT (Gangliated Utophin Imuno Latency Toxin), a disease that is thought to be spread by a medical terrorist group based in Africa, and save the world.

If variety is what you desire then Trauma Centre: Under the Knife won’t disappoint. In the game’s main Story Mode players must complete an array of different operations, with many different medical instruments, to prove themselves a miracle doctor. They can also unlock many secret missions by completing surgery with enough speed and proficiency. All of the operations in Trauma Centre must be performed within a strict time limit, while also monitoring and safeguarding the general condition of the patient.

Story Mode is not the only game play option available to players, they can also select Challenge Mode for the chance to re-enact any previously completed operations and attempt to beat their previous score and rank.

Using Nintendo DS’s unique touch-screen, players are put in the heart of the action – carrying out surgery using the Nintendo DS stylus on the lower screen. The touch-screen not only displays the area of surgery, but also displays all the tools for the job including scalpels, tweezers, syringes, lasers and more. This user interface allows players to quickly select the correct tools for the job and adds realism by making the player use each individual item. The top screen is used to display vital hints and tips from colleagues, time remaining and the all-important number of mistakes made.

Final Fantasy XI Treasures of Aht Urhgan – x360

Title: Final Fantasy XI Treasures of Aht Urhgan
Category: x360

US Release Date: 20060420
UK Release Date: 2006-04-20
JP Release Date:
Developer: Square Enix Europe Ltd
Publisher: Square Enix Europe Ltd
ESRB: Teen
Genre: RPG
Details:

The hugely popular genre of RPGs was firmly established in 1986 when ENIX released the first console RPG, DRAGON QUEST®, which sold over 1.5 million copies in Japan.

The success of this game led to a number of other companies developing RPGs of their own. One of these was SQUARE who released FINAL FANTASY in December 1987. The first game in the series told the story of four warriors of Light who had to vanquish Garland, an evil warrior who came from the past.

The original FINAL FANTASY set out many of the elements which would be found in future instalments of the series, including the Crystals (integral to the FINAL FANTASY universe) and the class system for characters. The game was a resounding triumph with critics and the general public, and pushed SQUARE to specialise in creating RPGs.

The following year, SQUARE released FINAL FANTASY II in Japan which displayed several advances over its predecessor. The characterisation of the protagonists was deeper and the story more advanced; the game�s heroes, Firon, Leon, Maria and Gus, were four young people who had to fight the evil Palamecia Empire.
