Note: Everything below will include the Bio-Weapon in the Cure Mode only,as the Main Game Bio-Weapon is overall balanced and shouldn't be included.

Why It Sucks

  1. The plague already start with a high Infectivity and Lethality means it already spread like wildfire. If that wasn't bad enough, it increase Infectivity and Lethality every time a new country is infected, meaning it gets stronger and stronger the more it escape from its home country
  2. Because of its never-ending spread and death rate, on difficulty such as Brutal of Mega Brutal,a vaccine is useless,the only way to win (especially on Mega Brutal) is to confine the continent it is found,the use the "Extreme Measures" on the bottleneck countries,and wait till the disease burn itself out.
    • To made matter worse, the only way to win is by locking it into either South or North America as any other continent just not feel reliable.
    • And even if you successful in the first step,it's not like the chance of winning is 100% as you have very little time to counterattack,all those widespread,deaths and panic will deplete a huge portion of Authority,and fewer people infected mean fewer resources to counter this.
  3. It's so hard that even long-time veteran Pravus Gaming rants about it in his video.Judge by his expression,it is clearly he never ever wants to play this ever again.

Redeeming Qualities

  1. Despite it's difficulty, it has a silly way of beating it on all but Mega Brutal.
    • To do this,one just focus every resource they have on Authority boost,Censorship,Fake News while not even bother tried to stop the disease and all infected will eventually die,lead to the disease burn itself out.
    • It doesn't work on Mega Brutal because 1% recovered people revert back to being healthy and Censorship,Fake News end faster.
  2. Some player see the Prion is harder than the Bio-Weapon.
  3. At least you have Declare Armageddon,which is a huge Authority boost,and a Authority boost on all Authority protocol
    • Additionally,you have Extreme Measures which let you kill the infected,meaning you can kill the infected if they escape from their country. It reduce Authority and increase Non-Compliance though.
