I think I'd rather play the old table top Operation game with friends, while getting completely drunk, than to waste $10 on this. Thanks for the warning, William! :D

I've actually seen a YouTube video of someone playing this turd a while ago and filed the memory away. Thanks for brining it back to the surface. Dear God, they actually SELL that crap?
Requested: One Mark V ECM unit, 1000 km of Fullerene cable, one low-yield nuclear warhead.

I haven't tried this game and don't really intend to, but it brings back memories of one of the very first titles available for the Commodore Amiga when it was brand new. Also a surgeon simulator thing, although this one was limited to try an arterial bypass operation without killing the patient in the process. Had to administer all the drugs, do the swabbing, cutting, pulling, plying, sutures, stitches, the works. Very advanced for it's time. Especially the heart rhythm regulating drugs took a bit of working out for a layman. Eventually managed to do it without killing the patient (through trial and error) :lol:

Not been tempted by similar games since though, so thanks for the warning.
