    What makes the game frustrating is that the viruses appear onscreen randomly and start congealing quickly, so you don't have a lot of time to plan ahead for chaining opportunities--which can be a problem when you're tasked with performing three chains of seven in three minutes. [May 2008, p.88]

    Everything about the game is well presented for the most part, as the visual and aural aspects are quite unique. It's eclectic, like I said before, but it's colorful and that adds to the overall allure or charm.

    Despite the pun-tastic monsters and multiplayer vs, the virus busting just didn't hold our attention as long as we would've hoped.
  4. If it weren't for the humor in the game, I wouldn't recommend it to anyone. Thanks to the clever writing, there are some who will appreciate the game enough to forgive the limited gameplay mechanics.
  5. This is not one of those casual puzzles games that you absently play while you’re yakking on the phone with your friends or otherwise multitasking—this one takes all your attention and all your reflexes for short, intense bursts of time.

    With that said, PPV will not give you any undesired side effects unless you're an ardent hater of puzzle games; beware of purchase though.
