Trauma Center: Second Opinion known as Caduceus Z: Two Super Surgical Operations in Japan, is the second game in the Trauma Center Series. Second Opinion is the first to be available on the Wii, was a launch title for the system in North America and Japan, and made full use of the Wii Remote and Nunchuk attachment. This version is a remake of the game Trauma Center: Under the Knife for the Nintendo DS, although its graphics and mechanics were completely redone to take advantage of the Wii's motion-sensing controls. The player takes control of Doctors Derek Stiles and Nozomi Weaver who is a new addition to Second Opinion. The game also features more voice acting than the original, difficulty levels, a new "Z" chapter that focuses on Doctor Weaver, and a sixth chapter that is different that takes place after the original chapter.

Test Entries
Revision OS CPU GPU Result Tester
3.0-774 Windows 7 AMD Phenom II X4 840 @ 3.2 GHz ATI Radeon HD 5700 Fully playable given that you have an actual Wii Remote and Nunchuk. No visual or audio discrepancies besides in opening video. (in which the audio is a bit choppy) Gameplay is smooth. Used DX9. 60FPS, 100% speed in non-operation gameplay. 50-60FPS, 80% speed during operations. Sealion
4.0 Mac OS X 10.8.5 Intel Core i7 @ 2.9 GHz Intel HD Graphics 4000 Not exactly playable, major visual bug (spazzing bug stripes on the screen) (The .iso file is PAL). Playable with actual Wii Remote and Nunchuk. Runs 50-60FPS, 90-100% speed in game. Anonymous
4.0-424 Windows 7 Intel Core i7-2630QM @ 2 GHz NVIDIA GeForce GT 540M Fully playable till game clear given with emulated Wii Remote & Nunchuck (Remember to config WiiMote forward & tilt). Audio is choppy during operation. Gameplay is smooth. Used DX11. 60FPS, 100% speed in non-operation gameplay. 56-60FPS, 90% speed during operations. Conanak99
5.0-1528 Windows 7 Intel Core i5-3570K @ 3.4 GHz NVIDIA GeForce GTX 770 PLAY WITH ROTATION BOUND TO AN ANALOGUE INPUT. With the way Dolphin handles rotation, the Z Chapters are impossible without an analogue input. Trust me, I tried.

Fully playable in terms of performance, solid 60, no problems. Completed with an Emulated wii remote consisting of mouse and controller (A PSMove analogue controller was used but half an Xbox controller can also do the job). This only really caused problems in the "An Explosive Patient" level, due to how Dolphin emulates rotation and forward/back motion.
