I have had this game years and is perhaps the best game that I have ever owned, just a shame that it's manufacturer (Bullfrog) was eaten up by EA and thus any possible sequel could not be of the same high standard. Note: as far as I am aware, this game does not work with Windows Vista, due to it's lacking DOS support (which this game needs in order to run). Certainly worth buying even though it was released in 1997, there is just something about this game!
This is an addictive game that calls to your need to fix everything before you leave, except it becomes increasing difficult to pull yourself away from. So if you are looking for a consuming game, of which you self-build the scenarios, that become more and more complicated and addictive, then this is the game to buy. You'll find it hard to tear yourself away!
It just goes to show that not all great games must be blockbuster style.
This really is a simple game but incredibly addictive and fun to play.
Start with a bare hospital and build offices, surgeries, operating theatres etc to cope with an ever increasing flow of strange ailments and patients. Not always as easy as you would think which of course makes it an even better game.
The graphics are basic, the whole idea is basic but this game is still going strong after all these years and will continue for many more.
Silly fun for adults and children alike.
