I liked it but would like to see a more realistic M.D. game.
Does anyone know of another doctor game???

Hello,
The promo made it seem like this would be a game to learn a bit about some aspects of Medicine (I wish I could go to Med School) and solve some real life scenarios like the ones in Discovery Magazine Vital Signs column. Wrong. I'm 48yrs old please dont insult the gaming community intelligence. A big soap opera - I dont watch those doctor shows I hate T.V. - Just 3 cases and they end it with the WORST thing - the doctors all wanted a cigarette! Why? Might as well had them take some Demerol and chase it with a few beers if you are going to make the docs act irresponsible. Why the tryst in the closet scene? Too many bad message for the younger gamers and the game is too short. It was a great idea that fell so short. I begged my friend to use her laptop to play this game as my computer does not have the operating system to support it. I even paid for it. Well, I'll just stick to Bookworm and Gov of Poker. Sure hope they rework this one .

I found this game very boring. Finished it so quickly, hardly worth fifty cents.

i think the game is good. not the best, 'cause the medical things are funniest, but not many of them is there. and i think there is to much reading too.
And the fact that they stole from House is annoying. I mean, a boss who is demeaning? who's friend with the head of oncology? And there's people working for the boss, who happens to be chief of diagnostics? That was/is stupid. I mean, come up with your own storyline, people!

I agree with sammiekatz that this game is boring. I played 20 minutes of the demo and said that was enough. Just couldn't get into the game. I won't be buying it although I'm starving for a good HOG or Adventure game as a DD.

I demoed House MD last night with great expectations and was sorely disappointed, so tonight I tried this one, hoping for better results. NOT! Why do game developers always feel the need for timed minigames and then make them almost impossible to get through? I played this on relaxed, which apparently means the HOG part is not timed, but everything else is.

As for the banter.....blah blah blah. You just want to smack the shite out of the head doctor after about 3 minutes. Then there's the orderly with the attitude problem.

HOG portion was also annoying as well. DEVELOPERS: for God's sake do not make the HOs so blessedly indescernable that you have to go "THAT was a (insert item here) and the "click area" 2 pixels large. I had to click on one of the dry markers 9 TIMES in order for it to recognize it.

And nothing in the game even remotely resembles a real medical situation.

So all in all, Elizabeth Find MD should be pronounced DOA, because it certainly is no find.

This game is okay, if you have NO MEDICAL KNOWLEDGE WHATSOEVER!
The cases are somewhat interesting, but some of the HO scenes and minigames are downright pathetic. I felt like I was watching a soap opera (General Hospital comes to mind) while playing this game. Having a minion search a doctor's odffice AND house? Can you unethical???

If you're looking for a "cake" game, namely a "piece of cake" to play, this game is for you. If you're looking for a challenge or a REALISTIC medical/forensic game, look elsewhere.

I admit I did buy this game and enjoyed it, but after actually going out and taking medical classes (I am currently an EMT-I and training as a medical coding and billing specialist), I find the medical parts laughable.
