This should be mandatory playing for anyone in a Biology class, regardless of grade, not necessarily for the morbid curiosity, but more to point out that there's other things in the world to worry about than racism, racking up a credit card bill, etc.

My only concern with this is that the plague one creates is intended to wipe out the population, where as in real life, they don't usually want to kill the host, but simply make it weak enough to breed like crazy in it. A virus, bacteria or parasite that terminates its host is basically committing suicide, which isn't exactly conducive to evolution.

Speaking of, the evolution points first start rolling in, then it's an incredibly slow crawl later on. And, once the borders are closed, there's no freakin way to possibly infect a country, which I find outlandish. (Even though a country has its borders closed, if it's hit by a hurricane and I have level IV water resistance, I should infect someone.)

But, the game does force you to focus on cost/benefit, which is what life is all about. You can be very contagious, but not very lethal. You can be very resitant, but not very infectious. Life is about weighing the options.

Very good simulation. I just wish I could have causes folks to turn into "28 days" zombies that would rampantly infect each other. (Never could get past Tier 2 symptoms).

What I'm wondering is...

One thing: How can Russia seal off its entire border? I think that'd be pretty hard.

Anyway, amazing game. Much better than the previous ones, and I really liked being able to select your disease type. Plus it was cool seeing the ships and planes move between countries, spreading your disease farther and farther. Very nice touches in the game.

There were a few things that I thought were missing from the game however, like commas. I don't mean to sound like a grammar Nazi, but it's hard to look at 4094303617298 and realize you've just killed an amount of people equal to the population of Asia. It's quite an eyesore looking at huge numbers like that, hard to convert it into millions and billions and such.

Another thing: Why do Cuba, Madagasgar, New Zealand, and Greenland get their own areas, but not the UK? I don't have a raging boner for the British or anything, nor do I consider it a major 'flaw' in the game (Who would?). I just think it's kinda funny.

Finally, I would just like to reiterate this is a pretty cool game. I look forward to seeing more Pandemic games in the future.

Bug Report!

Great game and all, but if a window pops up while you are moving the map thing, it won't be able to close.

I was thinking about Pandemic yesterday... Anyhow, great game. Love the new interface, the new countries, and the different tiers of death we can inflict on ourselves. Very nice.
