That's it i'm moving to Madagascar. Apparently they are just impenetrable to all the troubles of the world if it doesn't start there or they just close their shipyards. All i need to do now is learn how to say " Beer please!" in Madagascarian... Madagascese...
...What the hell do they speak in Madagascar! I need a beer!!!

Kind of weak.

Honestly. When the visibility is nil, how can they spot you? How can bodies be burned if there are no deaths reported? Exactly how are you supposed to infect everything when they can see your supposedly invisible virus, bacterium or parasite? Fix it please.

Fun but repeatitive

The government shouldn't instantly react to evolutions. Going Airborne and having every countryhand out masks in the first hour is NOT realistic. I've tried multiple ways of infection and in the middle of the game it always plays the same.

The game itself deserves a 5, but Madagascar can suck my balls.

Dry repetition...

It was okay playing through about a quarter of one game out of curiosity, but after that it was just too repetative. Very little strategy is needed or even possible in this game. Seeing as strategy is the main attraction to this game, it needs to offer something more. It would work better as a mini game if the gameplay speed was increased.

Addictive, but full of flaws

You are on track to this being a great game, however it has some major game crushing flaws in it's gameplay:

1- Island nations are way too difficult to infect. This is "somewhat" realistic in the sense that they have a natural boundry, however when I've killed 99% of the earths population, you bet your butt that the remaining infected survivors will attempt to flee the pandemic to whichever nation there is.

2- With 1, there is no iron curtain when it comes to infection. Even with everyone in EV suits, there is still a high chance of infection if everyone is in a panic. This means that closing borders and ports should make infection difficult but POSSIBLE if the global pandemic is extreme enough.

3- Madagascar, again is a piece of trash. I tried quitting and replaying to try and get madagascar as my infection hub just so I wouldn't lose, but I never got it.

4- the world overreacts to wimpy threats. I had a disease which had no fatality rate, and before I spread out of the country, all the rest were closed off, and a cure was in development. I suggest making the disease much easier to kill if you don't bump up your disease, (and in 1st world areas, should kill the disease unless it has a high drug tolerance), and make the world less insane to it's spreading. Around the globe, millions of people are infected daily with the common cold, and you don't see us stopping the globe for it. Think about it, if nations impose martial law, burn bodies, and stop trade, they would die just from the lack of economy. This would be the last thing countries would want.

So all and all, be a bit more realistic with responses. Make it harder if you don't beef up your tolerances. symptoms should spread disease, tolerance should make it harder to kill, (climate can kill disease too, or make it easier to cure in hospitals). Also, put general body immunity in there somewhere. I mean, humans should have some tolerance to it anyways, and in some cases, make them practically immune to weak diseases.
