"To be fair, Emergency Room: Disaster Strikes may well not
be 100% medically accurate - not being a medical person, I can't vouch for its
authencity. But it does require you to perform tasks that you usually see TV
doctors having to do. The premise behind the game - which is actually the third
game in the Emergency Room series - is that you work as a doctor in the
emergency room of a hospital, in a city which is one day shaken by a big
earthquake, resulting in chaos, carnage and casualties cropping up all over the
place. It's up to you to visit one of three disaster sites, pick out one of the
three patients at each site, and take them back to the hospital for diagnosis
and treatment. You can actually select a patient by ailment, so that you know
what kind of casualties you're going to get - crushed leg, broken nose and so

patients you encounter have a wide variety of problems, and also health
insurance (the game curiously doesn't bring you into contact with uninsured
punters - funny, that). And even more worryingly, the life of each one is in
