Wow... Simply Amazing!

I have to say this game is an amaing spin-off of Pandemic.
I'm going to set up this review like my Pandemic review.

WHAT I LIKE:
- I really like the accuracy change in the regions on the map.
- I like how the player can interact more with the map.
- I love the new music. It gives the game much more suspense.
- Like Pandemic, I like how you do not actually see the deaths.
- I like the statistics interface. It is much easier to use and understand.
- I like how you can infect water supplies and airports yourself.

WHAT I DON'T LIKE:
- This is probably just me, but I liked the quality of the world map in Pandemic better.
- I don't like how the Breaking News panel covers a portion of the map.

HOW I MANAGED TO BEAT THE GAME:
Beating the game is difficult if you are playing it for the first time. In fact, you might find that you barely get anywhere without the game ending on you.
The most important thing to do is reduce lethality to zero at the very start. This seems to make the countries develop their vaccines more slowly.
Next, you need to completely infect one continent at a time. Don't go hogwild and try to infect all the continents at once. There is a such thing as immunity in this game.
After your first continent is infected completely, it is time to destroy the human population. Spread yourself to the other continents, while increasing your infectivity with each turn.
Once the whole population of the earth has your virus, it is time to kill. This will be highly reminiscent of the original Pandemic strategy from this point out.

FINAL WORD: As with Pandemic, my viruses are called Diabloids. MUWAHAHAH!

Nice "Spinoff"

The first one is great but this is awesome. There no much to say about the graphics its just a map of the world. They music fitted perfect for this game.Not much action but made me really think and plan. But this one was more tougher than the first one. Good job though,please make more of these.

...

Well, I must say I don't like it...

In the other one, the strategy played a large role, but this one is
PURE LUCK! I found myself around 5 times having every country infected but one, with a high level virus and not being able to infect the last one (the planes landed ever on infected countries, even with 3-4 planes per turn) UNTIL THE LAST ONE DEVELOPED THE CURE...

Could have been a lot better if it wanst so dependant on luck...

Good, but the first was better

I liked the first better because it wasn't so easy to win.

For those that are having trouble winning:

Day 1: Raise infectivity to 3, lower lethality to 0
Day 2-3: Spread until more than 1 person is infected
Day 4-7: Wait until you have 9 points then raise infectivity to 4

From then on, just keep spreading until you hit 10 infected people, then infect an adjacent area. Once all areas on a land mass are infected 100%, infect an airport and try to spread to another land mass. Keep spreading and infecting new areas until all people in the world are infected (Greenland and South Pacific are hardest to infect because you must use an airport to access them). Finally, keep pumping points into lethality until everyone dies. This should get you 100% kills in about 70-80 days.
