  • Summary: Reach for your stethoscope and grab your nurse's outfit as Oxygen Games announces the arrival of Hysteria Hospital: Emergency Ward. At Hysteria Hospital, life proves to be a manic challenge. Players have several levels of the hospital to navigate, and they have to reach desperate patients and demanding doctors within a set period of time. The frenzy inside the hospital increases as the game progresses with more and more demanding patients desperate to be cured. You play as a female or male nurse and organise the ward and direct the patients to treat their conditions as quickly as possible. You can design and improve your ward for life-saving efficiency to be the best head nurse in America and save the Hospital from being overrun. Each of the patients have many humorous conditions, all with cures using the latest, bleeding-edge treatment machines ranging from basic X-Ray's to steam therapy to the hilarious De-Stress machine. There are 7 different wards to run, from a local Maryville clinic through to New York Central Hospital; over 60 levels including the 'Endless' mode that steadily increases in challenge as you progress.

  1. As a whole Hysteria Hospital delivers what it promises. It is a fast paced hospital simulation game in which you have to manage your time in order to not lose control of the patients and your hospital.

    Hysteria Hospital is a fun romp that simply fails to capitalize on its potential.
  3. A half-decent time-management game. [Aug 2009, p.99]
  4. 50
    I'd like to think that Hysteria Hospital's creation was all a ploy to highlight the troubles of overworked nurses everywhere, but that's probably not the case. Instead, it's a pretty decent, and mildly addictive, game that could have been much better - losing the repetition would have been a good start.
  5. Hysteria Hospital is a game that's enjoyable in short bursts, but any prolonged plays quickly leads to a severe case of boredom.
  6. This game doctor is diagnosing Hysteria Hospital: Emergency Ward as having contracted a terminal case of tedium, with symptoms that include repetitiveness and tiresome gameplay.
  7. An accurate introduction to the soul crushing world of a career in administration it may be, a fun way to pass the time it is not. [Sept 2009, p.82]
