A review of Pandemic II

Pandemic 2 is pretty easy to get the hang of, and once you do it’s a lot of fun. I always look forward to playing it when my teacher says I can. It is a good learning game because it not only teaches you science, but also geography. For example it might say, “you have now infected China.” At that point you can go and find China on the map to see how many people you have infected.

Because of the different game options and stories, Pandemic 2 is always a different game every time you play it. The changeable game modes and strategies give you plenty of choices. I also enjoy how it takes time to earn points and you have to wait to add new traits to the disease.

Some people may find Pandemic 2 a little confusing at the beginning when they are trying to work out the object of the game. I would recommend that there be a message saying, “infect as many people as you can.”

Fun rating: 4 out of 5
