The infection has begun and it’s up to you to strategically spread and evolve a deadly plague to bring about the end of the human race. Saving the world and being a hero is honourable, but decimating the world with a deadly infection is a whole lot of fun — even though it shouldn’t be.

One of my favourite games


Granted I’ve only just restarted playing this recently and it is neither a fast game nor do I win often or even keep at the same game a lot. But something about killing off the world is eerie in the best kind of way. Wish you’d include more film based things. I keep creating the Rage virus from 28 Days Later which is cool and all (and I know the lack of graphics means I can use my imagination) but I’d love if I could tailor a zombie like outbreak in the game, or even have a set version of rage to try and take over the world.

Side note: I’m sure it’s a lot of effort but how about doing small scale infect a country. As a U.K. fan it would be great if I could strategically try and take out the U.K. bit by bit with the rage virus.

If you can’t tell, I happen to like this game and 28 days later ALOT! And in those late game stages when I’ve wiped out most of the world, the 28 days later theme becomes THE BEST accompanying music to this game, really intense and I really feel like a monster.

It’s a perfect game, I can only give those couple of suggestions to make it better. Otherwise flawless game which I’ve enjoyed for several years now

Good game but changed.


I remember buying this game years ago when it first came out, was the only game I could play over and over even without getting bored even though there's no graphics or fast gameplay . However playing it recently they've added a hell of a lot of paid content now. I paid for one special strain of a virus or plague etc the vampire one just to make the game a bit more dynamic, worked a treat but now there's a whole list of other "scenarios" "Gameplay modes" "plague variants" and "cheats" to pay for. Obviously it's all about money but maybe too much so with this game now, still fun to play though.
