In­tro­spec­tive melo­drama

PC GAMER (US) - - NETWORK - Andy Kelly Sec­tion Ed­i­tor

Two Point Hos­pi­tal is a fun, wildly ad­dic­tive mod­ern­iza­tion of clas­sic strat­egy game Theme Hos­pi­tal. It mixes man­age­ment with a wicked sense of hu­mor, bril­liantly vivid an­i­ma­tion, and a good level of cus­tomiza­tion. I just wish there was a sand­box mode.

I tried with all my might to re­sist Fort­nite, but in this line of work that’s tricky. It’s al­most ex­actly what I ex­pected, but I have to ad­mire how pol­ished and im­me­di­ately en­ter­tain­ing it is. The build­ing stuff is a bit finicky, but sets it apart from the likes of PUBG.

I’ve been pray­ing for a Yakuza PC re­lease, and Yakuza 0 is a fan­tas­tic en­try point to the se­ries. Ex­treme vi­o­lence and in­tro­spec­tive melo­drama have no right work­ing to­gether as well as they do here, and I’m ter­ri­bly ex­cited about hav­ing the rest of the se­ries to play in the fu­ture.
