I don't have the stomach, the steady hands, or the nice abs to be a proper surgeon like on TV. Up until now, I've had to settle for watching Private Practice and Grey's Anatomy with my wife. Now I get the chance to call the shots and live on the edge. I recognize that Surgeon Simulator 2013 isn't the kind of polished gem that is characteristic of games that get this kind of praise, but it does something that so few games these days achieve; it gives you an experience that you've never had before. This game is literally a bloody mess at times, but it's got more humor, heart, and soul than just about anything else you'll find this year.
