Follows the same premise as its predecessor, Life & Death, wherein you play a up-and-coming surgeon who must perform simulated surgery on patients with varying problems. The sequel focuses on the brain, whereas the first game focused on the abdomen.
The graphics and gameplay have been improved from the first game, but, other than the new patient cases, it plays more or less the same.
Life and death 2 is the final L&D game made, "if you did not read my review of life and death 1 then you should go and read it but I will go over some of what I said in this review."
In L&D2 you of play the role of a surgeon and doctor in Toolworks hospital. This time the main focus of the game is the Brain, where as L&D1 was about the Abdomen.
Also there have been a large number of improvements such as more informative diagnoses. You get to examine most of there body this time (face, arms and legs). Also, you will have a number of new tools such as a hammer, pin, CAT scan and MRI scan.
This also makes it harder than before but you will soon learn thanks to the small in game book. And the great thing this time is you can do all the operations at once, no more having to finish one before moving on like in L&D1.
Operating is more complex as well there are more things to watch such as the C02 level and urine output as well as the good ole EKG. Also operating can be more fun now with better graphics and sound and the ability to use a drill.
Now if this is not enough to make you download it then you go best view another game as L&D2 is a real gem, as the working version of it is very rare.
So go and enjoy this great game. I rate this game 5 because this is a rare great game.
Arguable the best doctor games ever produced for the PC (well, Theme Hospital comes close, but that is more of a management game), Life & Death 1 and 2 put you in the role of surgeon who specializes in digestive systems in the first game, and brain surgery in the second. Diagnose patients correctly and perform increasingly difficult more advanced procedures to get promoted. The games are much celebrated for their strong emphasis on realism (not surprisingly, since their designer is a real doctor). The games also boast high educational value as well, since every time you make mistakes you'll be sent to a classroom to learn what you did wrong. And yes, there IS an end to each of these games-- it just takes a lot of patience, dozens of successful surgeries, and steady hands :)
