The makers of the acclaimed medical action series Trauma Center blow the genre wide open with Trauma Team, bringing not one, but six exciting and creative gameplay modes!

With improved game balance and a completely original approach to story cutscenes, Trauma Team delivers the thrills and drama of the best medical entertainment.

Emulation Information

Wii Remote Gestures

Trauma Team utilizes almost all Wii Remote motion controls throughout the game. Because of the difficulty in mapping all these controls onto a traditional controller, a real Wii Remote is recommended for this game. For assistance setting up an emulated Wii Remote, see this forum thread.


Skeleton Glitch

In "Demons and Death" mission, during the autopsy, the skull is invisible; as one needs to analyze the skull in order to advance, progress seems impossible. If a player clicks on locations of the skull on the skeleton while not visible, the game can progress. For "Demon and Death" mission, click somewhere on back and top of the skull.


Remove 4:3 Borders

When the Wii Aspect Ratio is set to 4:3, the game will add black borders to the top & bottom of the screen to remain in 16:9. Trauma Team was designed with 16:9 widescreen in mind, and cannot crop to fit in the 4:3 screen. But one can make Dolphin stretch the image to fill the entire 4:3 screen with the following steps:

  • Set Aspect Ratio to 16:9 under Wii settings (Config > "Wii" Tab)
  • Set Aspect Ratio to Force 4:3 in Graphics settings (Graphics Config > "General" Tab)

This method will distort the image, so it is not recommended.


Only configuration options for the best compatibility where they deviate from defaults are listed.
