Two Point Hospital: In sickness and in wealth

Tadhg Treacy reviews the quirky business simulation game, Two Point Hospital.

Publisher: SEGA

Developer: Two Point Studios

Platforms: PC (Windows, Mac, Linux)

Release Date: 30 August 2018

Cup of coffee in hand, you look out the window of your tiny sanctuary, the smallest possible space that management could slap a “staff room” sign on and get away with it. Should the cartoonish characters running around, all dressed as Freddie Mercury, concern you? Probably. The lady with two squirrels and a dog attached to her rear? Par for the course, really. It’s just another day for you and the other doctors of Two Point Hospital.

Running a variety of hospitals around Two Point County, your mission is simple: “Cure Patients, Earn Money.”

Two Point Hospital is the quirky, zany spiritual successor to Theme Hospital, one of the most successful business management sims of the 90s. Running a variety of hospitals around Two Point County, your mission is simple: “Cure Patients, Earn Money.” Each location poses a unique set of challenges, from patient numbers to ailment types. While in one setting you may need to open another fracture clinic, you’ll be inundated with “Verbal Diarrhoea” sufferers in another. All this time, remember, you need to keep your bank account in the black.

In a nutshell: With its eccentric style of humour, clever progression system and genuinely impressive soundtrack, Two Point Hospital is not a game to miss.
