Surgeon Simulator 2 is a clever, funny puzzle game that renders its “surgery” mechanics almost ancillary to the final product.
I cannot stress this enough: Surgeon Simulator 2 is not a surgery game. The first game was goofy and weird—you were expected to navigate an intense night of open-heart surgery with a clumsy set of keybindings and mouse clicks—but even at its ridiculous heights, the anonymous doctor was still cracking ribs and replacing livers under the supposed guise of a medical institution. In the sequel, though, you will encounter those same challenges in radically different contexts. It completely obliterates Surgeon Simulator’s foundational pitch, and instead filters the franchise through the lens of madcap physics games like Goat Simulator and Octodad.
What is it? The sequel to the original simulator parody.
