One of the things that made the original Trauma Center so much fun is that it's a fantastically goofy story centered around terrorist Catholic viruses, and yet the game takes itself so seriously. The grand tradition is continued in New Blood, though with improvements.
The sometimes jarringly inappropriate music and conversation combinations (like discussing the impending death of a little sister while bouncy elevator music plays) have taken their leave. The soundtrack is used effectively to set the mood and doesn't overpower what's going on, which is nice. While the first 'Stigma' you encounter is a straight rehash of the first GUILT, all the others have new forms and require different methods to defeat them. Plus we have entirely new stages, like brain surgery, to keep the regular levels interesting.
The characters are also likable and they don't get irritating, as was sometimes the case with Angie. Our main character does spend most of the game in an emo haze for blindingly obvious reasons which we're supposed to be surprised about at the big reveal, but again, since this goofy game takes itself so seriously the emo only reaches eyeroll levels, nothing annoying.
All in all a fun game to play and make fun of while doing so.
