    I really do love this game.
    The news broadcasts made my laugh my ass off so many times. I'm serious when I say that this game has the best political commentary in gaming history.
    You take the form of one of many different types of plagues, and your goal is to **** **** up. But the humans don't want their **** ****ed up, so they will eventually discover you trying to **** **** up, and attempt to **** your **** up by curing your plague that will inevitably **** **** up anyways. The game is quite realistic, whereas countries will do everything in their power to attempt to avoid your **** **** up virus, such as distributing face masks, bombing their cities, and hosting kissing parties.
    For 15 bucks, it's a great deal and it will last you some time. The only problem is the relative imbalance between certain viruses. For example, the **** **** up zombie virus is ridiculously overpowered, while the **** **** up fungus is extremely weak and unreliable. The game is heavily skill based, and the random event god has little to no influence. You may lose 5% efficiency in hot countries, but what's that do when you can turn people into **** fruit bats? It is definitely challenging at first when you have to take a Bacteria virus which is rather weak, but your very next virus is an overpowered plague simply known as a a "Virus" (you can still name it yourself) that gives you free boosts to your plague once every 30 seconds or so.
    TL;DR: A surprisingly realistic game that portrays a global pandemic from the perspective of some alien who really loves to **** **** up or something. There's no story except for a few randomized in-game events that include but are not limited to; A space program, Spalin being elected and nuking Russia (spoilers) and a disrespectful funeral-goer forgetting to press F. I am dead serious. There are so many easter eggs, you're missing half the game if you don't read the news once an in-game week. Each in-game day is one IRL second by the way.
    While it does need a few more features, this game is a great purchase that can occupy a lot of your time. It gets frequently updated with new, extremely original viruses such as a virus that turns people into Neanderthals, a monkey plague (They worked with the Planet of the Apes guys) a virus that turns people into dinosaurs, the black plague, Ebola, H1N1 (which is coincidentally named Extra Crispy Bacon due to its Swine Flu nature) and a few less creative others that only slightly impact your plaguing. Man, this is a long TL;DR.
    Have fun ****ing **** up with a virus you've named "Outsourcing" or some silly name. The scientists are concerned about the affects of outsourcing on the human brain.

For example the Neurax-Worm is way too easy to beat while other things like the Bio-Weapon on Brutal is, in fact, really brutal to beat. This is a down-side because the only way to get those diseases on brutal is to follow tutorials or anything, which is simply not fun, but rather frustrating. But I assume this is gonna be a good game once they finished everything and they added the Necroa-Virus. The price is a little too high with almost 15€ for a game which used to cost below 1€ on the phone. And once you have beaten every disease on brutal or mega-brutal you can't do much and you are left with messing around, but there is no real follow up after that. I kind of like the fact that every disease has it's own playstyle, you play a virus different from a fungus and a nano-virus has to be handled different from a bacteria. It takes a while to get accustomed to the game but once you are accustomed to playing every diseases you can have a lot of fun with it!
    I like the traits you can give every mode at the start as well and I like the way you are free to decide what you want to do. Still, one thing which is almost as annoying as the brutal-playthroughs are the popups. They just annoy the crap out of you. I have deactivated the option for the non-important pop-ups but still this is so damn frustrating. Why do you have to make the pop-ups so big? There is enough space in the bottom left right over the DNA to place popups. You don't have to cover the entire screen with it.

    Still, I can recommend the game for everybody who likes 3D-Models of microorganisms and is interested in parasitic diseases, viruses and all that kind of stuff. Maybe you should wait and play the free online game Pandemic 2, which has less depth in the game, but just to check out if you really want to play some kind of game like this. And if you want to, wait until the game is finished in a few weeks.

    Plague Inc: Evolve is a infection simulator that object of this game is to eradicate the human population on earth by evolving and infectingPlague Inc: Evolve is a infection simulator that object of this game is to eradicate the human population on earth by evolving and infecting them with a fatal disease. To do so, you must morph and migrate the disease to fit within the different climates on Earth. If your disease becomes popular enough, the local governments try to cure it. When you have infected the world population, you can morph the disease to be lethal enough to kill.

    While the premise the promising, the fact is the huge difficulty complete eliminates all chance of repeatability. You could go lethal too soon, not infecting enough population and lose. You can become too lethal too soon, the governments will find out about your disease and will cure your disease before you had a chance to either infect or eradicate the world's population. Either way, you are facing the clock. Even on normal difficulty, it feels like your disease is found out too soon, and there are more chances to lose this game than win it.

    Overall, I would suggest you do not even piss away your money on this simulator. In it's beta stages, it needs some fine ironing to do, and requires significant balancing before it goes out of beta. Right now, I cannot recommend this game.
