For everyone, this is a strategy game. Where you can plot out your disease's killing points, plotting out the people's weak points.
For me, It's a torture game. You are basically crafting out the single most deadly disease on the earth, and you can choose each of the illnesses...It's almost like being a god!
However, there are a few kicks:

Controlling the map is very hard, but they fixed that issue in the sequel
'Pandemic Swine Flu'. ( Of course it's only one country, so I doubt it will work on a whole world map)

There is always the fact that this game is unbeatable in a incredibly frustrating manner. You first have to make sure your disease is as low visibility as possible- then swoop in and attach all of your evolution points to the most deadliest symptoms and the world will forever more be free of humans.
But, the Countries will instantly catch you as soon as you manage to get your disease out of the beginning country, they then close down all transport between the other nations; Which leaves the almost funny thought of one country filled with dead people or people gone insane from your disease, and on the border of that country is filled with happy smiling people who are not concerned with your virus and have seemigly found a cure to every illness known to man: DESTROY THE TRAVELING SYSTEMS TO OTHER COUNTRIES!

This game is a great simulator, but is ruined by a incredibly difficult task; in fact, trying to do dance dance revolution on hard with a keyboard is about the same difficulty.

Nice game. Made my group's best Timekiller list.

Cool concept, but I don't like the vector model. If the remaining countries have healthy people and all they do is close the borders, its not going to help against the rodents and insects. You always end up with a few immune countries. Besides, once the droughts and earthquakes hit, you would think the containment measures would be less effective. Especially since when the dying starts there will be throngs of people pushing to get into the healthy zone. All those military people holding the border of an infected region? Well, they're not just going to lay down and die of painful butt-sores. They're going to invade the healthy places. Madagascar wouldn't last 20 seconds.

Anyway, I was frustrated because the concept was cool, and it just didn't go far enough for me. Keep workin!

Pretty nice

But there is a very annoying bug.

If you don't start in Madagascar but somewhere else, there is a very low to no chance to get it infected. I tried it around 10 times, with different approaches and a lot of time and indepth strategy, but it just won't. That's -1

The borders really annoy me. the whole Caribbean is called Cuba. The northern and most of the eastern part is called Peru. Mexico has all the central american countries. Eastern Europe's borders are innaccurate. There's no corsica, while there is sardinia. Sicily is merged with Italy. You could seperate Indochina from China, and Scandinavia from Eastern Europe. -2 for that one.

The rest is excellent and well-made.
