Compelling and addictive fun
19 May 2014
The game is really good. It's so fun and compelling that you'll forget to feed and bathefyourself.
You start of by choosing your type of plague, be it a virus or a pathogen or bacteria or a few other choices which get unlocked through gameplay. After choosing the country where the first infection takes place, you make choices to evolve your virus by adding symptoms (and thus potentially increasing its infection rates or lethality) or evolving its resistance to heat, cold, medicine, etc. The goal is to infect and eventually kill everyone on earth. The game also promotes replaying by providing many different paths to reach that goal.
This game is similar to the web game Pandemic 2, but in my opinion is better. It has the same kind of "one more turn" feel to it that Civilization players know so well. This game is a steal.
