The diagnoses may be odd in this hospital sim, but the overarching prescription of fun is universal. Two Point Hospital is one of those simulations where things start out calmly as you start to get used to the controls and the various illnesses infecting the population, but it quickly starts to run a fever and gets fast-paced as more people show up under the weather. As a result, the game isn't hard to understand or grasp, and gives a sandbox feel to a directed experience in hospital management. Yes, players can design the interior of the hospital to suit their tastes, but internal mission prompts are very specific about how to meet the needs of patients.

Graphically, the game is outstanding, with pastel color schemes and patients exhibiting a range of amusing illnesses. That means curing people that are mummies, that are turned into cubist blocks, or that have light bulbs for heads. But while some of the gameplay can become repetitive at moments as you try to reach your goal, its largest issue is that its crude humor seems just a little bit over the top at times. That's because you're frequently dealing with patients with flatulence, or defecating (and urinating) in places they shouldn't. But Two Point Hospital manages to outweigh some of the crudeness with a generally light, humorous tone that helps players key in on the fun elements. And while you'll be running a business and sticking to a budget, there's a larger focus on interior design and lighthearted property management that won't require an economics degree to be successful. If you can overlook some of the elements that work for cheap laughs, Two Point Hospital is an enjoyable hospital to check in to.
