Digital Press - Classic Video Games
An unbelievably unique game, Imagic really had a winner here, but Microsurgeon was NOT destined to become a classic. Why? It could be that the thought of moving a tiny probe around the interior of a diseased human wasn't the most appealing theme to gamers. Zapping cholesterol buildups and brain tumors might have hit too close to home for the adult player, and the potentially biological background may have scared a few of the youngsters away. Not me, though. I bought Microsurgeon the day it came out, and whenever I dust off the Intellivision for a little pre-Nintendo competition, you can be sure this one is going into that slot.

Die Punktezahl am Ende - sehr kompliziert ausgeklügelt! - ist beinahe Nebensache; man hält den Patienten am Leben.

All Game Guide
Microsurgeon has very little action. It is still an interesting game with enough options to make it challenging. You have the option to start with patients in fair condition to patients in critical condition.

Vos honoraires seront calculés en fonction de multiples paramètres : état du malade avant votre intervention (et après !!!), rapidité de l'opération, énergie utilisée etc. Rassurez-vous ; l'ordinateur s'occupe de toutes les formalités et il ne se trompe jamais... Original et amusant. Plutôt pour les plus petits.

The Video Game Critic
The game offers several difficulty levels and two players can cooperate, but Microsurgeon simply doesn't have the "fun factor" most gamers crave. Still, collectors and Intellivision fans should probably track this one down for its novelty value alone.
