Life & Death 2: The Brain review

ACE (1991): "Life and Death 2 is good fun and very educational. The graphics are just the right balance between cartoony and realistic images, I hate to think what a CD-I version with real video footage would look like (who would you get to model for messed-up operations?). You feel a great sense of satisfaction after correctly diagnosing a patient but following the correct procedures can be a drag. I spent more time back in the class-room than I did curing patients. Once you've reached the top of your profession and successfully performed your first brain-job, there is little left to come back to. Still, I can't wait for Life and Death 3: Removal of the Stomach Bag."
