If only...

...the whole thing was based on your choices instead of prefixed action by various governments this game will be a total success.

But the madagascar closing port for a parasite-bacter-virus that does NOTHING except spread, makes all the game a failure on all the fronts.
A game that forces U to start from a place to win, otherwise you'll NEVER win, deserves to be buried under tons of blame.

Redo it and maybe it'll be a 10

Entertaining game, really no strategy and all luck

After reading many other user's reviews, it seems that most of the changes have already been stated. However, I'd like to put in my two cents.

The game is very random sometimes, I did an experiment with selecting parasite, removing all of the symptoms and put no transmissions.
However, the parasite I was using still spread, and while none of the transmission sources were selected, all nations shut down airports, borders, seaports, etc...

Not only that, while I realize it might be game breaking in some effect, but a country doesn't burn bodies for a parasite that causes no symptoms or harms the host..

It was just frustrating is all, and I have also experimented with other settings and found out that infection/alarm to your virus/and the spread of it is reasonably random.

Please change the percentile chances to be more based off skill than luck.

Good But.....

It is pretty bad that your virus can't get from one country to another by means other than Air or Sea. I can understand the Islands (like Madagascar or New Zealand) who you wouldn't be able to, but places like, for example, in my one game, all I had left to get was Peru and Argentena, Brazil had the virus, so i didn't really understand why the virus couldn't get it. This is the main reason i gave you a 8/10. other than that, it is a very entertaining game

Pain in the A**

This game was very well thought out but poorly executed. Although the premise and gameplay is fun, Evolution Points take too much time to gather up, and you spend a long time waiting, even in "Relaxed" mode, if you can even call it that. The game also seems near impossible to beat. It took me many tries to do so.

Here's how I did it:

Start a Relaxed game using a Parasite. Make sure you begin on Madagascar.

Right off the bat, remove whatever symptom you start out with. Yes, this kills infectivity, but it also removes visibility. Don't worry, you'll still infect people.

Pump up your resistances, specifically Moisture, and take Waterborne. While the disease slowly spreads, keep pumping up resistances, and don't bother taking any other spreading methods.

When your disease finally spreads to another country, take Rodent transmission to quickly spread to neighboring countries. Soon enough, the disease will spread like wildfire, and because you have no symptoms, the regions' borders will not close.

Soon enough, every region will be infected, and it's time to kill your victims. Right off the bat, upgrade to second tier and take Pulmonary Edema, and then Fever, and you'll have deaths going on left and right. Take Cysts, Sweating, and Vomiting, and wait long enough, and the world will be gone without even going to tier 3.
