I love to play games in my downtime and Facebook games have been my most recent guilty pleasure! Actually, I love them because they are so convenient, you don’t have to go through a huge registration process and they are very secure to play. I also like the ones that allow you the opportunity to choose whether or not you want to share with your friends on your Facebook profile. I love to share with my friends that play the game, but never like to bog up my non-gamer friends news feeds.
Recently, I was able to review the House M.D. Critical Cases game by Ubisoft. I love the TV Show House and was excited to see what they would come up with for a game.
My worry when I first heard about this game was that they wouldn’t be able to accurately capture House’s sarcasm, however that simply wasn’t the case! His sarcasm is still there, as well as his insults. Being a sarcastic person myself, it is something that I appreciate. When you first begin the game, you get to customize your character and have a look around the hospital. You are given a case to try and solve.
While you are solving the case, you get the chance to work with Dr. House’s team. First, they go through the patient’s story, much like they do on the opening scene in the television series. That way, you can see what happened to them. Then you sit down with the team and work on solving the case by ruling out possibilities based on things you find. One unique feature that I love about this game is that there are several small games within the overall game that you can play. They have you go through the person’s home and find clues, research cells and even have a matching game with the x-rays. Below is an example of finding clues.
As you level up within the game you are given more status as a doctor and can gain access to more areas of the hospital.
You also gain access to the Clinic where you can help patients that have walked in. You determine whether or not to give them medicine, take them to the lab, or submit them for long term care. When you treat patients, they give you mini challenges to do the treatments yourself. For instance, giving someone a shot or even stitching them up. The nice thing about curing a patient is when you get a message telling you that they are cured!
In true House fashion, there are witty comments, sarcasm and insults throughout the game. Once again, if you love the television show, you will appreciate the humor within the game.
The more that I played this game, the better I found that I liked it and really look forward to continue playing it and see what they come up with next!
