While the title might lead you to believe that the titular hospital is full of unfortunates in straightjackets, Hysteria Hospital: Emergency Ward isn’t nearly as exciting. The aim is to gallop from ward toward filling beds, medicating characterless patients and making as much money as possible. For once – MRSA notwithstanding – here’s something that actually makes the NHS look good. As management games go, this is really quite monotonous stuff and there aren’t even any biblical plagues or swine flu outbreaks to make it more interesting.
