This will be a short review of the console version of Two Point Hospital. If you want an even more detailed review of the base game you can read our PC review right here.
Our most skeptic author has reviewed the base game including a few DLC’s (Close Encounters, BigFoot/Pebberly Island), and the overall score is surprisingly high! So does the stable high-quality port nicely over to console? Let’s find out.

A short summary of what Two Point Hospital is: “Build up a hospital from nothing to a masterpiece as you design the most beautiful – or functional – healthcare operation in the whole of Two Point County. Optimize your hospital design to increase patient (and cash) flow, arranging corridors, rooms and waiting areas to your exact”
All the bad dad jokes are there, all the glorious and hilarious graphics and animations are there, you simply get all of the glamour the original base game had to deliver plus a little bit more as two of the games DLC’s are also included in this console version. (Bigfoot and Pebberly Island)
The port of this game has been revamped for consoles perfectly, everything runs smoothly and the control schematic and user interface have been created from the ground up to fit consoles. It’s very little to complain about this game on a console which I will talk about further down below.
This isn’t a bad thing, but I can’t stop playing the game once I’ve entered one of the hospitals I’m managing…
There is very little to complain about the console version of Two Point Hospital, there are only two things I need to mention and that’s it. Like the PC version you have the campaign mode where you play through the various hospitals to receive up to three stars. But the one thing I actually miss which is a “must-have” on this type of genre is the sandbox mode, hopefully, this is something that will be added later on. The other issue is the struggle of the controls. There are some scenarios especially when you are rearranging rooms where the controls can be a bit confusing, as it feels like you’re missing a button or the button you used before now has a new meaning. But that is the struggle to have this type of genre on the console, Jurassic World: Evolution has the same struggles.
Console Score 9
If you love Two Point Hospital on PC, you will increase your love or even reignite that crush once more, as this is a perfect port to consoles. I didn’t test out the Nintendo Switch version, but I can imagine what that would be like. Everything runs smoothly and the controls are easy to learn and the best possible way to integrate a PC game of this genre to console.
