Awesome but...

It was great but like many other ppl have said it is very very VERY!! hard to infect other places after ports, airport and boaders meaning u are just sitting around waiting till u lose cuz u can't get to the other places to shut down the hopitals to stop the vaccine also i started out a game and just sat around and let my DNA points build up but all the sudden when i got to like 30-40 points the infection spred like wild fire and 4 countries shut down for good while all th others burned

PS i didnt spend any points on anything but fever(which i started out with so i didn't really buy it)


Rated 5 / 5 stars

something as a spoiler :)

well ,i guess if u want to kill em all u need the lowest lethality and visibility and improve infectivity... didnt try it but i guess its like this. (notice when a number of ppl die others get scared and close everything, so u cant go on) but its a great game! im hoping that this is gonna b weekly no.1!

Very nice, but....

But why is it so hard to get the outer islands like madagascar, cuba, japan, ect? once they shut off ships and airplanes, its mearly impossible to infect them. Boarders dont matter, cause their isolated from the other countries. The only way I can actually get madagascar infected, is if I start out on it. Thats the only problem I see with it.

Improves on the original in some places.

The first pandemic game was something I had strong feelings for, and the dumbed down version almost broke my.... no, I'm exaggerating there, but it was a bit of a kick in the balls, and by the looks of this, this is actually going to improve on the previous one, not including the dumbed down version of course, but as usual, I'm playing through as I write so, this review may take a shift towards the hating further on.

The interface is a lot nicer than the previous game, and I like the fact that more dangerous symptoms have to be unocked, the natural disasters seem to be an interesting addition, although I've never heard of hurricanes in western europe, especially seeing as I live in western europe... Oh well, it does seem harder to kill people this time, not sure if I'm happy or sad about that, although I'm sure I'll figure out my stance later the map is more segmented which add's a nice addition of more challenge, by the time I've written this I've infected all of South America, oh, and I forgot to praise the choice between different types of infection, that was an innovative little addition.

I'm starting to pile up the corpses at last, although now that I am everyone seems to have gone crazy paranoid quicker than they did in the other games, probably because I infected a lot of people before becoming deadly though... Oh, and I also like the idea that people only start researching into a vaccine when you start killing a large amount of people, the researching into vaccines when you were little more than a common cold in the previous games confused me. Oh, and is it just me or do you not get as many points as you did previously? If so, it's a bit of a downside I think, I'm getting a bit low on them. I'm also happy that you've sorted out your geography since last time.

At this point I'm not really sure why none of the infected insects are getting past borders, you can't cull them all and you sure as hell can't stop them with border patrol. Wait.... The game is over now that I've killed everyone in south america? What about all the insects I'd infected?! I thought I'd sit around, brooding in my tiny virus mind until mankind lowered their guard, thinking I was gone and then BLAMMO! Someone vomits their stomach! But I guess I can't be too angry, even if I did eradicate the world in the previous game.

Overall this game does actually improve on the original, but only in some places, but I definatly prefer it, probably due to it's complexity.
