originally was getting this for my girlfriend and was thrown by the reviews, dont listen to them, give the game a chance its not as bad as the reviews made it out to be, i even play it myself, its like theme hospital but with more stuff going on, and more control over the hospital, with letting you colour anything and everything any color you want lol (small detail i know but amusing)

If you want to run a Hospital get Theme Hospital instead. This game is very similar with less controls. With TH you get to increase pay wages and control heating and money spent on researching cures and some random challenges within the game mode. This game has ZERO controls involved. All you get to do is build rooms, hire/fire staff and decorate the hospital and nothing else. I would prefer a hospital game where I can control staff hours, wages, the types of tasks they can perform, break times, charges for each treatment per doctor. I would also make it more realistic and include plastic surgery and post surgery recovery time spent in the hospital bed. Throw in a cafe, job posting where I can list tasks, work schedule and skill requirements just to add more to the game. If this game is offered to you for FREE then take it but don't waste the money on this game. You won't play it very much.

This is probably one of the worst games I've ever played and is really showing it's age (released in 2007), but that's not the reason why I dislike it. I dislike this game, because the hospital in this game doesn't even look like a hospital. It's like a mix between a very small airport, a medical practice and a train station which has severe funding issues (but I guess funding issues come down to if you actually play this game or not).

The storyline is extremely short and is poorly written, and has nothing to do with running a hospital. There are more doctors and nurses in the 'hospital' than there are actual patients. I don't really mind the poor graphics due to how old this game is. The AI's who work at the 'hospital' don't do their jobs (as designed). Quite a few of the patients which had been admitted, died while either using the restroom or died on the way to get treated. I understand that the AI are poorly written and this game was released in 2007, but there have been other games that were released in 2007 which were no where near this level of awfulness. This game isn't unplayable but you probably won't enjoy it.

Even though I received this game in a Humble Bundle, simply put, please don't buy this. It's not worth the money and effort to install even if you got it for a relatively good price. If you do end up purchasing this game, you'll probably end up requesting a refund from Steam.

I rate this game (based on my experience of 20 minutes) - 1/10.

This is my first Steam review. Bought and got bored of this game in one evening. However it was fun until I maxed out my hospital rating on free play with ease. Then I realised that due to the small number of patients attending your hospital at one time it and profit being easy to make. However you can rotate items unlike how other reviews have said.. So that's one positive.

One of the most hateful games I have played in a long time. The interface is rubbish, the theme is annoying and the hospitals you manage are all the same but without any continuity (you build the same things over and over every level). I wouldn't wish this game on anybody!

Thankyou Steam for letting me remove it permenantly from my Library!

I honestly adore tycoon and simulation games. I had a spare couple dollars and this was on sale a little while back so why not try it? Well... This is the only review I have written so far.

I have music playing, and the noises the receptionist or whatever she is was still annoying me. I just turned the sound off and that wasn’t an issue any more.

The thing that gets me about this game was the main story mode. Sexy male ab workout guy can’t marry the nurse because of his dedication to the job. What compelled them to do something like that in a tycoon game? It is just extremely awkward especially for this kind of game.

On a side note, I wish some of this stuff was cured in one doctor visit.

What a disappointement. There were no patients. My hospital had 5 stars but only 16 patients at a time. I don't know how the care system is wherever this game was conceived but here in Portugal it's more like 16 patients getting into the hospital per minute!! 10/10 would uninstall it. It got boring very quickly!

This isn’t a broken game, or a terrible game, but it's a game that never was great and is even worse now that it is aging.

Pros
  • Hospital Tycoon isn’t a terrible idea and I think this game at least provides a proof of concept

Cons
  • The campaign is pretty terrible, but you’ll have to play it to know what to do in sandbox mode.
  • It's so unrealistic. Treatment doesn’t occur in the examination room but the pharmacy. That’s not just unrealistic it's counterintuitive
  • The gameplay basically consists of a new illness being identified and then the game telling you what new equipment to buy.
  • The depth is really lacking. You don’t build out the hospital or decide how much people get paid. All you do is place rooms in a big sandbox and then buy equipment and put it inside.
  • The game is way too silly in my opinion
  • The game has a 1080p mode, but everything is just stretched out to make it fit the screen.
  • The aerial view just shows you the rooms, not any of the people or equipment.
  • You can’t zoom out far enough.

I hope this review won't sound too harsh.
I went in wanting to like this game, I really did.
This the worst tycoon game I have ever played, and quite possible the worst game in general that I have ever played.
Interface is very bad. The sims like noises the characters make when their dialog box pops up is atrocious. The game will freeze up every now and then for no reason. The minimal AI that is normally required in this type of game is horrible. I also don't think the developers had ever stepped foot in a hospital before they made this game.
The very core of the game is bad.
Do not go into this game expecting it to be in any way similar to the great indie "tycoon" games that are on the market (such as Prison Architect, Game Dev Tycoon, etc.) because you will be sorely disappointed.
It's just... so bad. So terribly bad.
If you got this game from the Humble Bundle, do yourself a favor and don't download it. Use the 260 MB storage that you'll save for something better, like pictures of Al Gore or something. Anything is better.
I felt gross and sticky after playing just 5 minutes of the game.


All in all, I give it a 7/10

Found this game somewhat entertaining at first, but it lacks in replay value and the story mode is too short, I was surprised how fast I finished this game as I was expecting more. Sandbox mode doesn't captivate for long either as there's just not an aweful lot you can do.

Might be something to play once in a blue moon if you want to kill some time.

Don't think I would really recommend this game, least it's pretty cheap but there's better games out there for same or less money.

Hospital Tycoon is not as good as the 10 year older Theme Hospital.

The story mode has an awfully written story. It is supposed to be made like a drama, but the whole story arc is shallow and just bad. The graphics are the strongest point of this game, despite weird animations.

There are some crucial programming errors like pathing problems (Receptionists not doing their job and patients dying in the rest room) and script errors in the story, where it is impossible to finish a level after missing an instruction.

There are no graphs at all, just some basic stats listed for your staff. This game should not even be named a Tycoon game.
