GameSpot... 5.5? Ummm, no. Try 8.9 or better. This game's great.

User Rating: 8.8 | Theme Hospital PC
:Good Idea:
·The pure gold comedy in Theme Hospital is the kind of stuff that should be in a lot more comedy games. Who would have known that drinking beer and sniffing cheese all day would lead to a bloated head?
·The rat shooting stage.
·The mechanics of this game are truly solid. There's so much to do, not only for your hospital, but for your employees and patients as well. If you don't pay attention, you'll have a patient kill over dead after taking a poo. Not good.

:Bad Idea:
·The lack of multiplayer (before the patch) was sad for me and a few friends. But we got over it fast.
·Having your janitor's not cleaning turds but instead killing time in the breakroom. Now, people are dying.. and that makes my smile turn upside down.
·The hiring process is hard. Regardless of how skilled a doctor/janitor/receptionist is, you'll end up with something wrong wtih your new employee.

·Regardless of how little GameSpot paid tribute to a great game like Theme Hospital (by Bullfrog Games... not Take-Two), this is a great game and for the price it's at today, well worth the bucks. You won't regret buying it.
