It was a good game overall

I just get bothered when I leave 2 countries un-infected its really hard to achieve madagascar BUT i got a 55,000 high score(for me)


lol dark humor i love it

Wicked Awesome!

You really got me into playing this game man! AWESOME TO THE FULLEST!

A great improvement on the original.

I love the original Pandemic and this was an excellent second version. Can't wait to see what else you come out with.

Oh, and someone hacked your highscores, btw...

Finally beat it...

After 57 minutes of gameplay (all at the top speed) I have finally beaten this game. I loved the minimap-closeup system, but a new addition to make it even better would be to add in a arrow-key movement system. The disease options were plentiful, yet too hard to get, as the points didn't come in nearly fast enough.

Some of the realism was lost when the option to make your disease harmless was initiated. (countries closing borders and hospitals because of a disease that doesn't even cause the sniffles?) This, however, was a necessary design choice, as it would be too easy to win without it.

I found that the only way to actually win the game on the realistic setting was to have my disease start in Madagascar. Not only does this allow for a disease that has already infected the hardest place to get, it also allows for slow expansion in the beginning (key to ramping up resistances before setting the disease on the loose). However, I did notice that in Madagascar, my infected population started booming after I started evolving cold resistance. I already had level 4 heat resistance evolved, but the infected population stayed below 100. After I got level 3 cold resistance, it skyrocketed to 10,000. Unless I'm mistaken, Madagascar is a warm and wet area, not a cold one.

I give this game a 9 because it allowed for a lot of freedom, had a good control scheme, and lots of little moments that I loved (Cuba shutting down airports while a plane to it was still in air, but allowing the plane to land and getting infected anyway). Keep up the good work, and I'll see you for Pandemic III.
