Plague Inc.

At first glance, Plague Inc. might seem like a scary game. It is, after all, a strategy game about the end of the world. But it's not all doom and gloom. In this game, you are a disease - and your goal is to wipe out the entire human population. You start with a small infection in a single country, but you'll soon be rolling through the entire world.

Gameplay

The gameplay is simple enough, but also deep: you'll have a screen full of world statistics, and you'll be able to choose which country to infect, how to infect it, and how to spread. The game is also surprisingly realistic: you'll have to infect people who are immune to your disease, and you'll have to keep your disease in check. But the most interesting mechanic is that you can create a vaccine for your disease - and that's where the strategy comes in. You'll have to infect the world before a cure is invented, and you'll have to go to war with the world's armies.

Graphics

The graphics are simple, but very effective. The game manages to convey the sense of urgency and danger that it's going for, and the game's simple interface makes it easy to keep track of what you're doing.

Information about replayability

The gameplay is deep enough that you'll have to play multiple times to see everything that the game has to offer, but once you've played through it a time or two, you'll have seen everything.

Pros

  • The game is surprisingly realistic when it comes to humanity's ability to fight back
  • The game is surprisingly realistic when it comes to the ability to create a vaccine
  • The game is surprisingly realistic when it comes to the world's ability to come up with a cure
  • The graphics are simple, but very effective
  • The gameplay is deep enough that you'll have to play multiple times to see everything that the game has to offer
  • You can play as any disease you want

Cons

  • The game can be a bit hard to pick up if you're not used to deep strategy games
  • The game is shockingly realistic when it comes to the possibility of a cure being invented
  • The graphics are simple, and if you're not used to them, the game can be hard to play
  • The game can be a bit repetitive

Conclusion

I'd recommend this game to anyone who's looking for an interesting strategy game that's a bit different from the norm - or anyone who's at all interested in the subject matter.
