Review of Theme Hospital

Add header image

I've been replaying this game again recently and I've lost track of how many times I've done so in the past. Its one of these great games of my childhood that I could never get enough of and come back to now and still love to play. It may be one of hundreds in a large genre, but I've never seen the exact idea replicated anywhere else and I'm glad of it as it is quite close to perfect as it is. It is witty, challenging in later levels, fun to play, and even though the levels don't change the replay value is still there as there is always the challenge to yourself of constructing an even better hospital than the last time. And then theres the fact that since its an older game it doesn't take up so many resources on your computer, thus playing brilliantly on even some of the crappest machines out there today. Ah, the joys of retro gaming.

I can see myself playing this many more times in the future. This is one game that, for me, has lasted the test of time.

I agree whole heartedly, I actually tried to install it on my PC recently, alas Vista won't allow me to rekindle my youth. :(

That is because Vista is sucky. You still may be able to play it in emulation mode, but I have no idea how touchy Vista actually is with that side of things since I have stuck with XP.

You don't know how much I agree with you. I love this game and I think too that I will always return to play a little more.

To install this timeless game on vista/7 the only two manners are:
- create a Virtual Machine with MS-DOS (not more of 1gb on the disk);
- use the XP MODE [not tested yet, but it should work] (only on 7 Professional or higher).
