Kind of buggy

I love this game and the one before it but what bothers me is though I played through about five times, I cant grab Madagascar, this shouldn't be a problem as long as the virus is not seen. I sell my starting symptom right of the bat and lower everything to zero. The virus spreads, but then after a while people start shutting down ways to get in, EVEN THOUGH THERES NO SYMPTOMS! No way of knowing its there and they still manage to just go, "Hey, I'm gonna shut the borders today!" Other than that I loved it.

Amazing Game

Managed to kill everyone apart from Madagascar, i know where i would move to if a real pandemic arrives :)

Really enjoyed the game, Loved the amount of selection for customizing your disease, great music choice it felt chilling, great for wiping out the world.

Great job, keep it up.

make more!

a big improvement from the already excellent pandemic 1.More options to upgrade your virus with,more areas to infect and much more challenging.

However, I think realism could be improved.I had the entire population of Brazil infected but no deaths because my virus wasn't lethal enough.ahah is that possible?oh!one more thing.uh call me nitpicky but China doesn't include south east asia lol. I think this problem occurred in several other parts of the world also.

These aside,this is a great game.I love the concept and strategy involved.make the virus easily spread,but don't get too obnoxious or risk hindering your advancement.(and more)

and it made me very scared.the thought of such a thing really happening.the green to red landmasses made it scarier.

Imporvement, but missing things...

I really like these pandemic games, but I think things can be improved in a few ways.
- Visibility seemingly has no factor at all. A disease that does not present ANY symptoms will still elicit a worldwide response with significant infection. That doesn't make any sense.
- Infectiveness seemingly plays a minimal role. A disease that has zero infectivity on the status bars will still spread like wild-fire and elicit a worldwide response.
- I'd repeat previous comments on how realistic the behaviors of certain regions, and the difficulty in infecting Madagascar. I'm pretty sure they have airports there, too.

Great game. I almost wiped out the entire world but Japan never got infected. It was the last country standinlg but my score was still really low. I also agree with others. I'd have my virus have no symptoms and no deaths so it spreads without warning. It's a successful strategy but then out of nowhere countrys start freaking out even though there is no deaths or symptoms. Once a good amount of people were infected, the only symptom I put was heart failure and the humans dropped like flies. But didn't reach japan. weird. Other than that. Great game.
