Obviously, if you played Two Point Hospital last year, picking up the Jumbo Edition probably isn’t necessary (particularly since you could just get the DLC that’s included here). But if, like me, you somehow skipped out on it, now is the time to remedy that oversight, and get Two Point Hospital: Jumbo Edition stat.
Two Point Hospital Jumbo Edition is, at its core, the same hospital management sim that we played one year ago, that onlye adds 2 DLC and two item packs (and still miss some of the PC version content). A very solid and fun product, but we only can recommend it to anyone who doesn't have the first version.
Two Point Hospital: Jumbo Edition works as a good place to start with the core game. The additional content packs add a lot to the base title, but without it becoming overbearing for those entirely new to Two Point Hospital as a whole. Although the game is probably still best experienced on PC, thanks to some slight issues with clumsy controls on other platforms, nonetheless it's a strong and worthwhile release.
Two Point Hospital naturally plays better with a keyboard and mouse, but Switch suits this Theme Hospital successor wonderfully well. It might be difficult to read or see particular texts in handheld mode, and the controls can take a little adjustment time, but any management sim fan owes it to themselves to check out this game. Technical issues, a degree of tedium in base game content, and the fact this supposed all-in-one edition is still missing some recent expansions aside, the variety of stages thanks to the included DLC and wealth of silly humour deliver a fun twist on what is otherwise a difficult field to work in.
