Developer: Bossa Studios

Genre: Simulation

Surgery is a delicate task at the best of times; but when you’ve got vital organs to transplant and a rather singular kind of hand-eye coordination, it’s not a challenge for the faint of heart. Unleash your questionable operating skills on an array of blissfully ignorant patients and see how you fare in this darkly hilarious surgery simulation.

The PS4 port of the hilariously macabre PC game could do with a few operations of its own.

Surgeon Simulator: Anniversary Edition is a one trick pony, and once you've played through the first operation enough times to complete it you'll have stopped laughing. The controls err on frustrating far too often, and while deliberately clumsy, the entire system is too inconsistent to provide much fun.

The novelty and humour soon wears off, but local co-op play is a great addition and perfectionists may get a kick out of the tough challenge of gaining perfect 'A' grades. Too frustrating to be considered fun, though it does get easier with practice.

Surgeon Simulator: Anniversary Edition's concept will almost certainly be lost on a few, but if you play with a combination of patience and trial and error, then you'll often yield positive results. The clunky controls are unforgivable, but its humorous attitude towards surgery is endearing, creating an experience that's as weird as it is funny. This isn't a game for perfectionists looking for a true simulation of a busy A&E department: it's more like a training ground for psychopaths looking to learn the ropes, shave a few eyebrows, and play with lasers.
