I play video games and review them.

House M.D.

Everyone’s favorite ***hole doctor gets his own video game!  Help House diagnose his sick patients while pulling clinic duty and trying to solve the mystery of Cuddy’s package.

As I said earlier, this is a video game based on the hit TV series, House.  You have five cases that you need to solve with mini-games to play throughout each case.  All the characters are here and perfectly in character.  You even have to take a break from the cases to deal with the patients in the clinic.  Don’t worry, the patients there are as stupid as they have ever been and House is there to remind them.  There is also a side plot where House sees a package Cuddy has delivered, but it really serves no purpose other than to make it feel like you are watching the series and it did that part well.

While the mini-games are fun, there is one thing that annoys me.  Every time you start a new mini-game, the makers feel that you have to have systematic instructions on how to go through it.  If it were not for the fact that some mini-games are frequently used it would not be so frustrating.  Look we get that we need instructions, but you do not have to tell us how to do the same damn mini-game repeatedly!  Is your target audience the mentally challenged?  Either that or you thought your audience had no short-term memory.

I wish this review could be longer, but there is really nothing more to say about the game.  All you’re really doing is watching five lost episodes of House with mini-games added throughout the whole thing.  Despite how irritating it is that the makers tend to hold your hand through the mini-games, it is still a fun play when you do not have anything else to do.  I give this game 5 out of 10, I don’t love it, I don’t hate it, it’s just there.

  1. Sounds amusing, though those minigames do seem annoying. I’m tempted to try this game when I’m not trying to get through any others just because it’s about House. 😀 What platform is it for?

  2. Cool. I’ll have to give it a try sometime.
