Way to hard to be fun.

The statement above represents my feeling. This could have huge potential, but the probability of infecting, spreading or un-curing is way to low to achieve anything. I can usually get to 3 regions infected, with 1% infected in each. It's too unlikely to spread to get ANYTHING done.

Could be better

Dont take this offensively dude its just i played the first and that one was hard took me ages this one was hard but u cant change the virus or anything all u do is just watch the lil men disspaear slowly but a good try keep going and spend some more time makin it like a Pandemic 2 then that would be awesome

Really bad

Way to hard almost all of the country's devlop a cure rather quickly. Also one game I played it was game over after the first turn. The virus does not spread fast enough. and actions such as infecting airports do not give results fast enough.

Hard to recommend this one.

Inferior

The original was better by a very long way, with a creepy atmosphere and a concentration on the virus, news reports adding a detached view of the human response on a global scale. The interactivity of the original was almost completely confined to modifying the virus and then sitting back and watching it spread in a fairly realistic way, killing the entire world. Like I said, creepy.

I get the impression that the creator of this spinoff didn't like the seeming randomness of the original and wanted to command his legions of germs in glorious warfare on humanity, but taking a more direct hand rather than modifying the virus and allowing it to go it's own insidious way has oversimplified the overall game experience. The division of the world population into ten little green men living on each subcontinent and the ability to send the virus across a border at will has drained all the realism, and thus the atmosphere, away.

One other small but very annoying thing - having greenland as a territory with the same population as south east asia, enforcing the arbitrary political border between the US and canada before the more relevant geographical barrier of the sahara desert... the poor geography also detracts from the realism.

Not bad, but can still be improved

I liked the fact that you could micromanage the virus' direction, but since that was the only way the virus could be spread it made it a little more unrealistic. I liked that way the virus spread on its own in the first one. I also like the new interface rather than having to go back and forth between screens. I hope you combine the good things from both games into a new and better one. Good luck.
