Business simulation game nostalgia is on the rise and frankly, I couldn’t be happier. From Planet Coaster and Planet Zoo right through to Jurassic World Evolution, many of our childhood favourites are seeing a much-deserved modern resurgence. Naturally that meant it was only a matter of time before Theme Hospital would see its day - enter Two Point Hospital. A spiritual successor to the 90’s favourite, Two Point Hospital has been on PC for quite some time now with its console launch finally landing today, though was that landing a smooth one?
On the surface, the premise of Two Point Hospital is quite simple. As the player, you are tasked with overhauling and reconstructing a series of hospitals within Two Point County, discovering and curing various illnesses along the way whilst managing developing hurdles on your journey. Whilst similar in structure to many other business sims, the game quickly unfolds to show you layers upon layers of quirks and character that turn out to be one of its strongest selling points. The illnesses you’ll be presented with are all comedic in nature and you’ll be shown plenty through your playthrough, ranging from ‘Pandemic’ (people with pans stuck on their heads) to those afflicted with ‘Mock Star’ (chronic and hilarious Freddie Mercury impersonators).
Of course, being a hospital, you’ll be managing quite a fleet of staff too...
When you consider the bundled free DLC packs, the campaign proves lengthy enough to feel worth it.
the worst offender by far was a bug that corrupted my save... I was forced to start my campaign playthrough twice over...
