Any cure for addiction of Theme Hospital?!,
By A Customer
This review is from: Theme Hospital (Video Game)
Theme Hospital is a totally addictive (and rather an authority trip) game. Place yourself as the head of a newly opened hospital and build receptions, clinics (including one for 'bloaty head disease'!) psychiatry units, wards, and pharmacies, all on a pre-set area map. You have a choice of facilities which you can embellish the hospital with (the choice becomes more extensive the higher level you progress to). You hire staff, invite V.I.P's, send patients home to increase the popularity of your hospital as well as aiming for financial security and low death counts!
The game also has a comic edge with announcements over the tannoy such as "Could all mad patients please be as quiet as possible, thank you"!
There is effective help given during play and good graphics and sound effects. What really made it for me though, was the imaginative illness that patients come in with (slack tongue and invisibility as a couple of examples!) and how you must cure these poor people!
Overall a thoroughly enjoyable game which left me glued to my seat in front of the computer! (they don't suggest any cure for that though!)
