Atlus hit touch-screen-adventure paydirt with Trauma Center: Under the Knife (more good news: a sequel, Trauma Center: Second Opinion, is in the works for the Wii). This time, the touching is a little less life-or -death.Touch Detective has a similar feel to that of another quality DS game, Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney. As you investigate each case, you'll ask questions of the people you meet and collect items.The item collection serves the most important purpose. Not only do you need to search for the items in the different locations you investigate, you'll need to determine when is the best time to use the item and if items need to be combined. You can view each item close up to touch and examine different parts of it.Bottom LineWith a unique art style and easy-to-use interface, Touch Detective is a quality game for junior detectives in waiting.
