    Two Point Hospital follows through on its lofty goals of bringing an old favorite into a new era, and in doing so, it has eclipsed many of its genre contemporaries and predecessors alike.

    Two Point Hospital is so much more than just Theme Hospital 2. It may take Bullfrog’s classic as a base, but it expands on the concept to great a modern management-strategy classic in its own right. The game’s deeply strategic, with many decisions to make, and there’s always something to do - but the player never ends up feeling overwhelmed. Most importantly, Two Point Hospital is just tremendous amounts of fun. We may have some quibbles over the information it conveys, but all troubles fade away when you just start playing it. It could be the best strategy or management game out this year.

    Two Point Hospital is a darkly humorous, fun and addictive game worthy to be called a true successor to Theme Hospital and the greatest of the classic tycoon titles of the past. Developers Two Point Studios know what they’re doing and it shows in the balance of near-perfect game design and biting satire. This game will suck many hours of your life from you before you know it, but along the way, it will also deliver a healthy dose of fun and laughter.

    Two Point Hospital is a perfect modern old school game, a well-deserved tribute to the old Theme games.

    The successor of Theme Hospital didn´t avoid flaws, but once you get immersed in the game, you will travel twenty years back in time with elegant style and modern graphics. Nothing more, but that's enough. [Issue#289]

    Two Point Hospital is probably the best strategy game this year, and an absolute must-have for fans of Theme Hospital. It has the same quirkiness, and is equally as hard to put away.

    Two Point Hospital doesn’t want and doesn’t know how to punish players for their mistakes. It only creates a feeling of hectic atmosphere and imitates problems to keep us from falling asleep while moving medicine cabinets for the umpteenth time.

    Huge congratulations to the team behind this superb game. Theme Hospital was a game that was very much close to my heart growing up. IHuge congratulations to the team behind this superb game. Theme Hospital was a game that was very much close to my heart growing up. I remember spending hours on end, playing in my room and was devastated when Bullfrog closed down. 21 years later and some of the original team have returned with a bang. Straight away you will get a feeling of nostalgia, even down to the original voice artist from TH. Two Point Hospital is a brilliant management game which will create hours of fun. Expand

The challenges where you have to cure x patients in 90 days or not kill anyone in a given time are fun. I gave it an eight as I found an annoying bug. I had one patient standing by the bed until he was angry, hungry, dehydrated and left my hospital, could not send him home too. I do not like the interface. When I want to hire, build or etc I would prefer icons and not descriptions. I am also not a fan of the prestige system. You want a prestige of six hire two nurses and build a toilet. You do not need it? Well when you want prestige six you need to have more employees - there is no sense in it
    I did play recently the theme hospital and it was quite easy so I do not fully understand those that loved theme and think this one is too easy and worth 0.

    I have never played Theme Hospital before, so I missed out on the fun that most people say they had when they played the prequel to this game.I have never played Theme Hospital before, so I missed out on the fun that most people say they had when they played the prequel to this game. I've played all sorts of sim games, so naturally I was interested in Two Point Hospital as well.

    The game is pretty interesting and keeps you interested for quite some time, but it heavily lacks variety so you'll only be able to play it in bursts. It's more of a need fulfillment simulator than a tycoon sim. There isn't a lot of variation with what you do besides making sure that both your patients and your staff are happy and healthy.

    As you progress further into the game, more elements are introduced to make the game more varied, and the objectives get harder to fulfill in order to beat the map. There is a lot of micromanaging involved so that everyone is equally satisfied.

    The reason why I didn't give this game an 8 is because some features in the game are basically ignored like setting the prices to things and customizing rooms, and because some mechanics can be abused to fulfill certain objectives without any sense of aesthetic or logic (i.e. you can spam paintings to meet the attractiveness need).

    Also, there is a serious bug where you can't meet the needs of patients even when you've met them. For example, even when you have plenty of vending machines installed to fulfill a person's need for hunger, they might never use them and just starve themselves to dissatisfaction, causing you to lose that patient for no justifiable reason. This was hugely unfair and didn't follow common sense.

    In any case, I think a good amount of fun can be had with this game, but I don't think it deserves anything higher than an 8. It is a sim that's nowhere near as complex as a game like The Sims. I think anyone who gives it a 9 or 10 is probably just biased because they loved playing Theme Hospital in the past. Not that nostalgia isn't a good thing I suppose, but reviews should not be influenced by that as well as hype.

The original Theme Hospital is far better, and still very playable. The graphics should have been much better, and they cut a lot of corners for a game that opened with a 39.99 price tag. Expand
