I was disappointed...

I wrote a guide for the first Pandemic and I tried using the same strategy here.Now for all those who might say, "It's a different game!", the guide works on logic.
By lowering down the visibilty to zero and increasing the infectivity, the virus should spread everywhere without being seen. I kinda noticed that the bars weren't really working if you turned off the symptoms. Anyway, I waited patiently to gather resistances and infectivity and midway, I saw that the virus began to spread as usual, but now the countries were finding a virus that had no negative effects or caused deaths. I found it weird that they were burning bodies that I haven't killed and by some strange reason, the entire world wanted to create a vaccine that didn't do anything.

It just doesn't make sense. I liked the concept, music, and deep gameplay, but you can't really have strategy if things are illogical. If things ran like the first Pandemic, maybe infecting Madagascar would be easier.

Not bad for a sequel

Its nice that a few things have been improved in this series, such as graphics, gameplay features, virus symptoms, methods of infection etc but you could definitely do better with it.

The first Pandemic game and Pandemic EoM were kinda good, but felt a bit repetitive in the way that you edited what viruses did a bit and then clicked to the next day. It also had the problem that some countries were quite hard to infect.

I think that its still quite hard to infect all of the countries, and the game doesn't require you to constantly click "Next day" anymore, as its all done in real time. I like how you improved upon the game in almost every aspect though.

God, took me forever to win

A great game though. I did beat it eventually (after hours of having to restart)

A tip: If madagascar shuts the shipyard and its not already infected, start over.


Rated 3.5 / 5 stars

is alright

I really like this idea but like many others it gets pretty boring and slows right down to practically nothing. I don't know what everyone is kicking up a fuss about madagascar. It doesnt seem so hard to catch em with their pants down. overall its pretty much as the last but i did find it amusing.
