The concept is undeniably, completely awesome. The execution... The execution missed what looked like a surefire bet. It's a shame. Making the game more interactable would have made it more interesting, and there are some serious realism issues which make the game less intuitive than you'd expect. An inspiring effort... But not the best game around, sorry.

Interesting game...

First, a slight bug: If a country is wiped out, they still contribute to vaccine development. 23 hospitals had shut down, and I had wiped out Greenland, but their hospital (apparently being run by ghosts) was still making progress!

All in all, a fun piece of work. To quote someone else, though... "Madagascar needs to be nerfed". It's one of the first countries to close its only route of entry: Its port. Once that happens, if you haven't established a foothold there, you will fail, despite all your best efforts.

I find it very difficult to believe that people would not attempt to cross the straight from South Africa to escape the disease, to speak nothing of the gameplay reasons.

Has some issues...

Actually, the most significant problem for me was a holdover from the first game, which is the fact that when a country closes its borders, it seems to be completely impossible to transmit the disease there. I would significantly reduce the chances of infection, but seriously? An airborne, waterborne disease that's also carried on insects and rodents and human beings? And its just going to obey political boundaries? Even if it was only specific to humans, I have a hard time believing the disease wouldn't break through.

I realize this is done for gameplay reasons, but even then, once a country closes its borders, you've lost, and can't do anything about it. It just seems arbitrary to me.

Other than that, and a few smaller issues, it's a cool gadget that's right up my alley, its completely superior to the original game, I've played through it a few times now and keep coming back. Nice job.

Nice idea, but i also have to complain about the same problems all the others stated. Only thing i could add is, that the highscorelist is exploited. Every Entry in the best 50 today and of all time is taken by NOHISCORE4U!!! with 99999999999999 Points.
