This is a really interesting, and generally surprising sort of game. This is a hospital, and or medical type of simulation title. It’s about getting patients better, and dealing with their problems whether they’re sick physically or unwell in their mental state. What it does to make that more interesting is approach this with a humorous angle to it.
That’s right, you can train literal clowns to help people out and have janitors deal with deceased patients by sucking up their ghosts. It definitely aims to provide a laugh, whether that’s with commentary from the local radio or the absurdity you deal with in a day to day at the office. On top of that, it’s also a really great simulation game. It offers many unique missions, scenarios and teaches you all of the elements you need to know in a great way.
I will mention that I was extremely disappointing it didn’t have a sandbox mode as that is essential for the type of player I am when it comes to these games. This is supposed to arrive as part of an upcoming update however, at the current time it doesn’t have that which is disappointing. Still, there’s a lot of freedom and a good challenge as you work on building up these hospitals in many ways.
This is quite a visually impressive game since you can zoom right in or stay above the action. It also features a very sleek interface and funky looking characters. It displays itself very well, and in a generally appealing way. It ran perfectly fine, felt large in scale and had so many options for building.
You could scale and sort out rooms however you’d like with easy options for placing objects within them. I really felt like I could build whatever sort of structuring I wanted, and then get weird afterwards with it. I also took a plant approach as that did give off a nice green warm feeling to those patients waiting or getting treated.
There are just so many little in-depth elements and I was shocked with how well it all worked on the console. There are many management options as well, and ways to expand outwards if you need more space. They definitely nailed the way tools are provided, and how players interact with them in this game.
Two Point Hospital is a lot of fun, with many engaging scenarios and a wacky sort of look at providing healthcare. I had a lot of fun with this, it’s definitely the type of simulation game that I really love to play. That being said, I really wish it would have launched with a sandbox mode.
There still are many great levels, and tons of options for building up your facilities. They do many little smaller humorous things here, and it’s quite funny to see that in action. I was shocked by how well it all ran, handled and how much it provided on a console. It was so awesome to tweak rooms after laying them out, and being strategic in how I handled my staff.
Everything is included in here when it comes to work on medical elements, and it’s great as this really is the type of simulation game that I’m surprised we don’t have more of. I love that they chose a different sort of angle for it too, it works beautifully.
