Computer Shopper, September 1997

"Ask any kid about his or her future career choices, and you can bet good money that the answer will not be hospital administrator. As a result, you may be amused by the release of Theme Hospital, a hilarious simulation in which you've been employed by the Health Ministry of Theme World to set up and run its hospitals. Your goal is to build an efficient health-care facility from the ground up, attract a first-class staff, and cure zillions of patients, thus making the venture a financial success."

"What makes the program so engaging is the charming graphics and the consistently humorous treatment of a rather morbid subject. Fortunately, the patients in Theme Hospital don't get normal diseases. You will, however, encounter such intriguing afflictions as Bloaty Head (an overinflation of the cranium), and even epidemics and natural disasters, depending on the difficulty level."
