Surgeon Simulator Review by Ms. Toaster
Surgeon Simulator is a funny surgery simulator. You could do standard procedures but also play as a medic from TF2, do surgery on an alien, or even operate Donald Trump!
WARNING: Blood & Gore! Trippy when you accidentally inject yourself!
It’s a single-player game, and the objective is simple, you have some procedures to pick from, and you try to do them. In the first procedure, you have to replace a patient’s heart. Sounds easy enough, right? Well, it isn’t. Moving the hand with your mouse, trying to pick up the items with your fingers MANUALLY can be very frustrating especially if you drop something important!
You use the mouse to move the surgeon’s hand, press the left mouse button to lower it, and use A, W, E, R, space to grab/make different gestures with your fingers. You can see instructions on the controls on a computer screen on the left side of your desk.
I find the controls to be comfortable; however, you can change them over in the settings tab. You see them on the left side of the game menu, where you have the procedures. You can also change your sensitivity there too!
The games 3d models are simplistic, so you can see what it is. It’s not overly detailed (which helps you keep focus). The game also has a lovely color palette that isn’t straining. Even the transition to the red strain you see when you get hurt is well made. The only thing that can be annoying is when you accidentally inject yourself- However, it was kind of my fault, so I decided to deal with it. Besides, you can always restart the procedure!
Obviously this game has blood & organs. It would be impossible to make a surgery game without any of it.
The only issue I could find is if you cannot differentiate green and red. This game will not be an easy task- However, those are the characteristic colors of surgery (There’s a medical reason for this), so the devs can’t do anything.
There’s not a lot of animation considering few things move (which again, it’s okay, or else the graphics would’ve been distracting). The animations are smooth and pleasant.
The game’s physics fits since the objects kind of “fly” away. You can just see the heart fly off the table because you accidentally hit it.
The game isn’t massive! You could run on a potato if you put it on low, honestly. My computer handles it okay even if it’s known for being a potato on fire!
The music is based on the beat of the heart rate monitor, which fits the game perfectly. It gives a suspense feeling. The feeling of WORK FASTER OR HE’LL DIE! Despite this, it doesn’t distract me. The suspense feeling, honestly makes me more motivated to work faster!
Note for audio impaired, deaf & deafened: The good thing about this game is that deaf people can play it too. There’s no need to put subtitles for them since what you see is what you get.
The card designs are well-drawn and share the game’s humor. They have a clean look and a nice aesthetic.
The badges are very, very nice! I love every single one of the designs, and honestly, the first level of the badge looks fantastic! The last level is an apparent reference to TF2.
The foil badge is the level 5 badge but with two golden saws crossing each other!
The emoticons you get are mainly organs (A brain, heart & guts), also has a head, a sack of blood, and some tools.
I like the backgrounds, they clearly put effort into them, and I guess you could make a profile with them. My absolute favorite scene is “The tools of the trade.” The least interesting one is “Missing organs” imo.
The achievements are hilarious and a good challenge! They reference things you can do in the game with some good humor. They also have an appealing style! I would definitely go for these achievements.
In short, the game is well made for what it is! It works reasonably well on most computers, and the graphics are good for what it is! I don’t have any complaints about the game. I find the problematic controls fair and fitting for what it is. The physics fit with the difficulty. I find it all to mesh well together overall! I don’t have any complaints.
Honestly, the game is really worth replaying. You can always improve and try to get all the achievements!
If you like a challenge, surgery, and frustrating fun then it’s definitely for you! This is definitely a game you either love or hate.
- Not a heavy game, playable on most computers.
- The challenge is really fun.
- There is a lot of humor and easter eggs that make the game interesting and more variated. Ex. Aliens, TF2, trump e.c.t.
- An older game that gives old youtube flashbacks.
- Colours aren’t optimised for red-green colour blind.
- Physics can be annoying at times (Ex. Items glitch due to the physics or items spasm while you hold them). They’re just really exaggerated.
- Not Up-to-date graphics
- Controls can take quite some time to remember since you move individual fingers and are fairly hard to control.
- Easy to get mad over this game, if you have a hard time holding your anger, you will definitely NOT enjoy this.
