Great fun, but not yet flawless

I think the idea for this game is unique and loaded with possibilities. It's addictive and satisfying to be able to create and unleash a microscopic monster and sit back to see what happens. I was able to kill everyone with the bacteria class on my 4th try (got lucky with spreading it to Madagascar).

Bar none, the most fun thing about this game is being able to develop your disease. It's fun to try and figure out how to keep your visibility low while spreading to the far reaches of the planet, and seeing what special traits you develop for the effort. Trial and error counts for much of the learning curve, and I have a lot of fun with that.

However, even in the longer, more in-depth mode, it was a bit frustrating to not be able to get to the more lethal symptoms due to regions going apeshiat over mere coughing and sneezing, and for how hard it is to acquire evo points at the end after you've infected everyone and/or uninfected regions are on high alert. I think a way you could fix this is to have populations able to recover from your disease while it still confers minor symptoms (in other words, infected numbers can become healthy numbers if your symptoms aren't deadly yet). Buying and selling symptoms would be more meaningful as well if governments could rescind policy and reopen airports/seaports if you succeeded in making it less visible, or less deadly.

I also didn't see the purpose of natural disasters, or even a lot of the preventative measures, because once a region was infected, it was all over for them. My disease would spread and kill everyone eventually regardless.

Otherwise great game--I will definitely be playing again, and look forward to the next installment!

theres 100 americans sweating! quick close the borders airports and shipyards hide in your houses kill every rat you see and pray for you life!!! lol its a fun game but the ai is crazy crazy. if 50 people sneeze thats reason to shut down the airports? :/ originally i did the no symptoms thing but that failed and then i was hoping that after so long the closed bordered people would open up because no one was dying. OH NOES ITS THE EVIL DISEASE THAT DOESNT DO ANYTHING! crazy crazy. i would like to pitch the idea of airports and stuff opening back up as the AI realizes the disease does jack squat.
