Rated 5 / 5 stars

really good (my strategy below)

a good strategy is start off with a parasite do not change any symptoms at all just keep fever se;ect all its ways of spreading first waterbourne, then airbourne, insects, then rodents then spend your time waiting for points build up all your defenses (your main region to infect is madagasgar its the hardest to infect) after every region is inffected add some new symptoms to kill people faster thats my strategy hope it helps =P

When I started up the game, when it got to the part where it advises you to read the tutorial, THERE WAS NO WAY TO CLOSE THAT SCREEN!!! I tried clicking the the top right X, but it wasn't there! I gave it a 3 though cause I thought it would be a good game

Very awesome

this one had a steeper learning curve than the original, but i thought that was good. lots of thinking is required.

the only suggestions i have are nitpicky: the first is that you have both "martial" and "marshal" law in the game. the second is that i hope that in future installments (if there are any), recruit a molecular biology major or someone else with knowledge of biology to help out with the disease properties. i love seeing real-world stuff being put into games and i think that this game could be even better than it already is if it had just that much more authenticity.

great game; one of my favorite submissions here.

Could Have been better.

This game is very very well thought out and if you will excuse me for a moment, THIS GAME IS FUKKIN SWEET!. The Breaking News isn't too advanced since natural occurrences doesn't really do anything too noticeable, Madagascar is the most paranoid island ever, and the Middle East is apparently the filthy whore. The 3 choices of Virus Bacteria and Parasite is a fun thing but when you boil them all down, It controls speed. So if you want a very short game you go to virus and so on.
The choices for symptoms were interesting but then later turned rather annoying when your waiting for evolution points from 4 to go to 22 so you can buy Hemorrhaging, but then you forget that you have to first pay for not only 10 but then the 15 extra points just to unlock the damn thing, and then your whole plan comes crashing down. And while I'm on unlocking tiers, WTF is up with how when you unlock a new tier you have a chance of getting any of the new symptoms, its like if your buying the next tier from the dealer, which is what I'm presuming is how you get the chemicals and such, and he just throws the viles of symptoms at you and one breaks, and that makes your virus break out and now all the other countries get pissed about it. You see when me and my friends back home play this we go to parasite on the sped up time and just wait, slowly working up our viruses under everyone's noises. And then people begin to worry and wonder why the fever won't go away. But I digress, what I'm trying to say is, this game can be greatly improved on, it is a very fun game and has a lot of great ideas, but you need to go more in depth with the Breaking News and how a Country would realistically go about containing a virus outbreak. Maybe even add in little animations showing the population slowing being infected, and maybe depending on the combination of symptoms you activate, have a different animation. For example, if you have Vomiting, Neurosis, and Insanity, I call it the T-Virus, you could show zombies. There should also maybe be an unlockable mode where you can have as many points as you want for more sandbox fun. Make another Pandemic is the best advice overall to give. I'll look forward to it.

Pelo says...

~Much strategy needed.
~More ways to infect/kill.
~Like the first, it's very eerie.

~Lots of waiting.

I do like this game. It takes a lot of strategy to take out the human race. The only quirk I have with this game is the governments get very suspicious of your disease even if it's harmless and invicible...sort of frustrating, you know?
