      Avoid! if I could give it zero stars I would

      Being a big fan of the program, enjoying the witty banter and complex cases I was initially excited when I received this game. Well the excitement soon ended!

      The game is as stated "The Official Game" and all the names including images of the characters are as per the tv program. You play a doctor who helps the team crack five unique medical cases. The game advertises over 100 mini games, and to test you with numerous challenges.

      Other than the repetitive background music the entire game is spent using the stylus. All the dialogue is text, all conversations are text based and run across the bottom screen so you find yourself continually tapping the screen to read through the conversations. This becomes extremely repetitive and dull.

      You tend to start by examining the patient you have the patient on the left side of the bottom screen and then various items on the right such as glove thermometer etc. You click on a area of the patient and the image shows for eg of the head with markers showing you the place you need to click the stylus, depending on the location depends what item you pick. This is the same with every patient and the problem is everything is prompted and you cannot do something wrong, if you mess up you either get another go or it gets done for you.

      Procedures such as using your stylus to spin the centrifuge, look under the microscope and take blood are again on every case and repetitive. The during the whiteboard stages the top screen shows a few letters "hang man" style and the bottom screen several diagnosis move around you find the one that fits and push it up to the top screen. Then some more text on why its not correct, and you do it again - all very repetitive and if you do it wrong you still progress through the game.

      The game involves no skill; you don't get challenged in any way and is just really dull and repetitive, I completed it in a few hours and a good 80-90% of the time was spent tapping the screen continuously to get through all the text. They could have made the game much more interesting and challenging.

      Avoid and don't waste your money or time.
