In the ER computer game, the player joins the cast of the TV show as a newly hired intern and handles a steady flow of patients with health issues ranging from minor cuts and bruises to serious injuries sustained from accidents and violence. Through it all, the player will have to navigate goals, dodge sticky politics, deal with gut-wrenching ethical dilemmas, and engage in steamy romances. With perseverance, the player will gain prestige among peers and supervisors and ascend the ranks of Chicago's County General Hospital.

ER captures the intensity and unpredictability of the award-winning television series for gamers. With celebrities Noah Wyle, Mekhi Phifer and Sherry Stringfield lending their voice and likeness to the game, fans will get a chance to interact with their favorite characters from the show. The player will start as an intern who must navigate the day-to-day drama in the emergency room, take on hospital politics, make decisions on ethical dilemmas and establish personal relationships - even romances.

Currently in its 11th season on NBC, "ER" remains one of the top-rated dramas on television, attracting 20 million viewers per week. The show has received 112 Emmy nominations, more than any other drama series in history, and has won 21 Emmy Awards.
