Well, as mentioned earlier in the week Ubisoft released a House game for facebook. Also i mentioned that i despise facebook games because of the way they seem to clutter up my page and invite boxes.
This is no different. The game is the same as any other facebook game. you recieve a set amount of “power” per day and can only run tests or treatments if you have enough. As well as you get bonuses for clogging up your friends pages with bragging and invites to join you so that ultimately you hope to gain more power to get your fix of medical treatments.
You get a set amount to start with and that will get you through the first case and a half. At which point they hit you with the fact that you can sign up for uplay which ubisofts online play system and they will give you more. Honestly i was half expecting a lost cow to wander into my hospital and make me pay money to get rid of it.
Anyhow, House MD Critical Cases starts with them making you join the hospital and changing into scrubs that they dont use in the game at all. Thats right. You can change your character all you want but in the end its still the default person. Throw in the fancy story lines and the twists of a normal house episode and boom! you have the game. You can earn yoru case budget by doing well in tests that are mini games. Card match, cell match and hidden objects are the ones i played. The better you do the more money and experience you earn which means squat if you dont have the power to run more tests. After a few levels you earn clinic access which is just another way to burn through your daily energy alottment and end the game quicker.
All said in done, i was only allowed to play for about 20 mins. After which i was invited to sign up for a uplay account and keep playing. Which i passed on and you should too.
Is your experience any different? or are you not bothering to play at all? Let us know in the comments below!
