    One of my favorite games of all time!

    This game is just plain fun! I've played it through 3 or 4 times, now. My only wish is that it had a random map feature for replayability. You basically are given an empty building (1-story) and you fill it with the v... Read Full Review

What Gamespot Users have to say about Theme Hospital

  • Review Score:8.8

    I highly doubt it deserves a mere 5.5. This game is fantastic!

    Theme Hospital, by Bullfrog, was one of the first games that I was ever addicted to. Before the Nintendo 64 took up permanent residence in my heart, I played a few choice games on PC (SimCity, Theme Park, assorted other ... Read Full Review

    A humorous strategy game that really sucks you in.

    I first played Theme Hospital on my PlayStation, all those many years ago, and I really enjoyed it then. I have recently obtained a version for PC and needless to say, I still enjoy the game for many reasons. As the ... Read Full Review

    Wicked game but repetative

    This game is awesome. It had hilarious illnesses such as bloaty head, slack tongue and invisibility. The first or second level gets you hooked, with an easy gameplay to start with, which gets progressively harder. You he... Read Full Review

    Theme Hospital, like all of these early Molyneux strategy efforts, gets repetitive after awhile, but remains a hoot to play. A clever, twisted attitude goes a long way here, with goofy maladies like Bloaty Tounge afflic... Read Full Review

    A great game that has had me hooked since childhood!

    I have had Theme Hospital for years now, it would easily have to be one of my favourite games. I only review it now because I saw GS's score and thought "that's not right, this game deserves way more!" Theme Hospital is... Read Full Review

    Can't believe Gamespot for a 5.5 rating. This game is a classic!

    This game is one of the best I have ever had a honour to play, the game is about you running hospitals (duh!) you start off in a small hospital, with only a few rooms/facilities available, then, as you progress, new room... Read Full Review

    A gem. A real gem. I feel sorry for those people who hane not played this. The funniest game ever made.

    Once in a while a beauty comes out. A real gem of a game which in theory sounds so rubbish that most people avoid it like the plague. But this one is the funniest game mixed with a complex strategy that for some reason... Read Full Review
