  Not even great when it was new.

I think there's a lot of folks who either pine for the old days, don't know any better or perhaps... are just trolling play.com's rating system.
This game was never great, it was alright, i remember having a good old giggle at it. But no-matter how many types of room there are, no matter how intricate things are under the hood (which i seriously doubt they are given the era it was made) it still isn't worth the cult like ratings it's getting.
Just like Psychonaughts (another bonkers 10/10 - 5 star band-wagon of a game) this is ok, fun, but there's much better out there people.

Brought back a few memories.

On Windows 7 it seems to struggle a little bit with colours on screen and sometimes the game will turn into that 'negative' effect you get on camera phones etc

Other than that a classic game!

  Does work on windows 7

I love this game, it's very entertaining and if you think it wont work on Windows 7 think again. You can get a free package that makes this game work on windows 7 that also improves the graphics, it is called corsixTH. Just google it and after you have put theme hospital on your computer download corsixTH and it will work on windows 7 with great graphics. I am so glad people decided to restore this true classic!

I remember how good the game was years ago but just got a new computer and tried putting on here and its now found out its compatible with windows 7. Never mind.

  A classic and very entertaining game.

This game is a few years old and on some systems it is best to lower your graphics resolution on your desktop before you begin but the game provides hours of fun for all.
You begin with an empty hospital wing and must fit it out with everything from a reception desk and benches to psychiatric rooms and pharmacy's.
You have to employ all your staff and the better they are the more they cost and the wose they are the more people will die! (But they are cheap!!!)
The game is light hearted with amusing tannoy calls from the receptionist and a range of bizarre conditions and illnesses from bloaty head to kidney beans and alien DNA .
Each level you progress, more and more problems can occur from epidemics to earthquakes, and more skill is required in setting your staff protocols. This controls when they can rest and how long to keep diagnosing and charging patients (the longer the diagnosis the more money you will take from each patient but set the process too long and you end up with a hospital of infected or nearly dead people.).
You can have a lot of fun just building your hospital and keeping it simple or you can really go into detail with research and policies.

Graphics: OK, as good as they need to be
Game play: brilliant and repayable over and over again
Controls: Very simple
Set up: Requires low spec and very little in game adjustment
Overall: 4 out of 5

At the price you can pick it up now it is a must for all gamers and work dodgers!
