Eh, pretty good, better mechanics than the first.

However there is one enormous flaw. Even with ZERO visibility, they seem to notice and have preventative measures, which is completely ridiculous. They can't tell they're infected, so why would they be preventing infection? Everything in the game is good but this, no matter how small the visibility is, around the same time all countries start shutting their airports, shipyards, and borders. I have zero visibility and yet they can still see me. I should be completely invisible. I'd suggest that changes.

Needs an updated version of the same gameplay

The game is fine, the execution of a disease going rampant is fine, how the disease is enough of a problem to close all borders across the eastern hemisphere when it doesnt kill anyone is beyond me. I can see them developing a vaccine early on to combat it, but to close borders before hand is just insane. Once borders are closed to a virus in one part of the world, it should cause mass panic and start having borders close around the world, but when the virus is invisible to the naked eye and has not killed anyone, borders shouldnt be closing. Yes a vaccine would be in development but the borders shouldnt be closing.

Another thing, how do they hand out the vaccine with all borders closed and no travel allowed anywhere with shipyards, airport, and public transit closed. Since they need to disperse the vaccine to combat it, can we at least see planes and ships traveling between continents to see where the vaccine is going.

The list prolly goes on and on here but Im just tryin to say this for you, listen to what everyone is saying, update this game to Pandemic 2.1, and let us enjoy the great feeling we get when we kill the entire population.

Pandemic Help

REVIEW:First of all let me say that this is a very good strategy game which i enjoyed very much. however due to the little animation and audio i gave this a 6. anyway lets continue on to the
GUIDE: I strongly suggest you try this game out for yourself and watch the tutorial before continuing.
i chose virus because i didn't want to wait forever to get evolution points. however you may choose whichever you want it doesn't matter.
EVOLUTION POINTS: the most important thing in the game is using these correctly and getting them. you get evolution points based off of how many people you infect and kill. however the rate at which you acquire evolution points significantly decreases over time.
.What worked for me was increasing the moisture resistance and then putting my points into making it waterborne. make sure to purchase every transmission. now what worked for me was turning off every symptom so there was no visibility. now when you turn off the symptoms it might say there is no infectivity but dont worry people will continue to get infected. i then started increasing all the resistences so that there was no place the virus couldn't go. by the way feel free to fastforward since this game takes a while. keep track of the non infected countries. if the country can no longer be infected restart. if you have infected every country move on to the fun part
WHEN TO RESTART THE GAME: if it is no longer possible to infect everyone in every country.
THE FUN PART: so no lethality and everyone is infected well done. at this point it doesn't matter if they can see you or not. everyone is doomed anyway. so feel free to unlock tiers and start putting points in deadly sypmtoms
OH SHIT A VACCINE: ok the vaccine prevents people from getting infected which sucks unless you become immune for some reason. however the vaccine cant help the people who are already infected. so try to infect everyone and leave no healthy people. if you do this feel free to laugh because the vaccine cant do shit.
WTF I STILL CANT KILL EVERYONE: Dont worry this game is partly about luck. try again in another region.
I hope his guide was helpful sorry it's so fucking long. if you have more questions about this game or another game pm me

Can't say much that other havn't

This could have easily gotten a 10 but as many others have said its just impossible to win without a whole lot of luck. The concept was amazing the upgrades where amazing too, but as I know many have said the island countries (especially Madagascar) are nearly impossible to infect. It's just highly inaccurate that a country like Madagascar would even close down its harbor considering that its government is weak and has little control over it's people.
Another thing is I don't understand why the insects and animals that become infected as well don't just cross the sea, I know for a fact that there are many insects and animals that do that.
This game could have been great if it weren't based so much on luck.
Some minor traits that could just be improved as well, the music got old fast the game speed at which you evolve just suddenly game to a screeching halt, and it would have been nice to see some kind of cut scenes every now and then that showed how my virus is destroying things.

Its kinda broken.

After a couple of games, I could tell when I wouldnt be able to win.

Madagascar should go die.

When countries shut off their air and sea travel, but my virus is airborne. It doesnt matter what anyone does, if its in the air, and the atmosphere. Everyone breathing thing is going to be infected.

Now if you meant by Airborne like a virus can travel on a plane. Point that out next time, because I was sitting here wondering, "If Cubans can swim to Florida, why cant Floridians swim to a clean Cuba?
