Rated 5 / 5 stars July 15, 2008


the game is absolutely fuckin amazing. i keep playing it over and over again but the thing that frustrates me is that i cant seem to get everyone on earth infected... i keep my visibility as low as i can and keep the contagious level as high as i can but they always seem to start to quarantine places before i can get everywhere.

Fun, challenging, and educational!

Quite addictive! It's a difficult enough game to beat, especially with island countries who close up the instant people begin sneezing. The best I've done is kill the whole world minus Cuba and Madagascar! I'm still trying, but I'm sure i'll figure out the perfect virus soon! Great game, graphics were quite smooth, music was cool, and almost deviod of any bugs. The only bug I found was when you were moving the viewer, the vaccine notice popped up, and I couldn't lose it to get back to my game.

Fun and addictive, but very random

I really enjoyed this game, theres a lot of content to discover, the idea is great and well executed. However, there are some problems.

First of all, after designing the main features of your disease, the game kind of turns into a screensaver while you wait and hope your disease spreads all across the globe while theres nothing you can do to affect the outcome. Its completely random if you manage to infect an area before they close their borders, airports and ports, and with the design of some of the regions, it seems like a really tedious task to keep chancing until you manage to infect everything.

This leads me to my second point, which is that some regions are near impossible to infect, islands, Madagascar in particular. Greenland, New Zealand and Japan all have a decent enough chance to get infected and its not uncommon to see all three infected at the same time as they all have airports, but Madagascar has only a port to get infected by. I dont think Ive ever even seen a ship dock there, and Ive sure never seen Madagascar fall. The only time I managed to infect the entire globe was when Madagascar was my starting region, and theres a very low chance of that happening as you cant choose where to start. I realize that this might differ as other peoples choices in symptoms differ from mine, but their strengths might make it hard for them to spread from other starting places. Thus I feel that offering the player a choice where to start would improve the overall playing experience as it would give people more control over what they are doing.

Thirdly I feel that the game doesnt explain everything very good and that a lot of the times when youre making a choice you dont really know what youre doing because of lack of information. This is almost part of the charm, but I felt it got sort of annoying after a while when things didnt work out and I couldnt understand why.

Overall I think its a great game, but some things could, like Ive said, be improved. Well done!

Very good but sometimes its too hard to infect a country so How about when hurricanes hit When they travel if its waterborne it could travel with the water :/
