Combat Medic: Special Ops
Your job in Combat Medic, as a member of U.S. peacekeeping forces deployed in the Middle East, is to treat the wounded while keeping the bad guys at bay. Gameplay consists of directing a team of grainy soldiers around a lumpy top-down map. When you encounter wounded soldiers, the game switches to a pseudo-3D view, and youâ€™re on scalpel duty in something vaguely resembling human form wearing combat fatigues. Every now and then, the screen flashes yellow, which indicates youâ€™re being shot at. You can either stick with your patient or zip back to the 2D interface to trade bullets with baddies.
Performance is appalling for a game that looks like it was mugged and left for dead after a beating with the ugly stick. Placing splints and syringes over body parts is a complex and infuriating game of â€œhover and twitch.â€ Realistic medical processes are admirably constructed, but the tutorial is woefully inadequate, and youâ€™ll spend most of the game clicking for hints with no idea where the next step is heading. The top-down combat is a pointless arcade throwback. Point, click, fire, repeat â€” it offers next to zero enjoyment.
