Nice graphics, shame about the game,
This review is from: Hospital Tycoon (PC DVD) (Video Game)I haven't tried story mode in this as I was a fan of Theme Hospital , like everyone else who bought this so opted for freeplay. You can see why we all thought it was going to be a modernised sequel but it doesn't come close, they have tried to build in more focus on the staff, who spend too much time either arguing or trying to romance each other which seems to me that they've tried to put in some Sims-like control while ignoring the bits they hype up- there's no sense of urgency in the gameplay as there are few patients and only about 5 diseases.
Overall it lacks the challenges of Theme Hospital as well as the focus on the actual hospital processes, the menus are not as well laid out as they appear as it's hard to identify objects in the purchase screens if you haven't been through "story mode", or forced tutorial and the game developers will try to charge you for cheats, which you won't really need as you'll probably be bored with it after half an hour. I'm sorry I bothered with it.
