Graphics are not ER’s biggest feature, nor are they a major selling point. The game has just one environment, the hospital, and the game doesn’t utilize any hyper-realistic graphics engine. This is probably a good thing since more players can enjoy the game, and who really wants a hospital game with hyper-realistic graphics; it makes me woozy just thinking about it. The game utilizes a bright pallete and a very colorful, upbeat user interface. After all, who wants to get depressed playing a video game?
While most of the time there is no music playing in County General Hospital, during certain events and when treating patients, you are treated to styles of music very similar to the show’s opening theme. You know, that incredibly eerie, creepy kind of music that would send you running out the door if you ever actually heard it playing in a real hospital. Since we aren’t patients though, it suits the game just fine. The game features a plethora of excellent voice acting and even includes actually actor voices from the show such as Noah Wyle, Sherry Stringfield and Mekhi Phifer.
