Plague Inc. Reviews

Nicholas Korajkic

Awesome Game!👍🤗🤗🤗  Nicholas Korajkic  5 star

This an awesome game. I love it and and so do all of my friends. I know this is an old game but for me and a lot of others……it’s still in style!


Auto Mutations  DocYardie  4 star

Auto mutations can really ruin your game. I’m trying to stay low and wait before I kill, then my game evolves my symptoms to become more lethal. I had a steady infection rate in New Zealand but then the game evolved total organ failure and I couldn’t devolve it. It killed everyone and my disease died out. Good game but bad feature.


Play for Hours  cizzlesh  5 star

Addicting and fun strategy game. I like to name my plagues after myself so I get the added gratification of eradicating humanity. I just wish there was an easy restart and triple fast forward button on the map screen if you realize your strategy isn’t going to work. As it is now, I have to save and quit, go back to the main screen, pick my scenario and rename my disease before I can try a new tactic.


Not fair  Jaydizzul  3 star

So, I was playing a game of this and I was winning a cure wasn’t found and everyone was infected and they all died. The game ended and it said that some people survived which makes no sense because everyone died.


Audio not working at all  FUniversity  2 star

A big part of this games atmosphere is it’s soundtracks

Captain Kelp Butt

1 star for nagging me to rate the app  Captain Kelp Butt  1 star

App is awesome, seriously a great game. 1 star for nagging me to rate.


iPhoneX  RicGA  3 star

I can’t close the app or toggle back to home screen on my iPhone X.


Great but updates are slow  Hag39503  5 star

It is a great game but it could use more updates and dev made scenarios, and yes I know these take a lot of time but still


Nintendo Switch  O'Rahe  5 star

This game is absolutely brilliant. I’ve been playing it since it came out for iPhone a few years back and it keeps getting better and better. It would be awesome if the developers would release a physical copy of the game for Nintendo Switch plus other hand held consoles.


It could be a little easier  Dylan5647  3 star

It’s a fun game but just as you think you have almost killed everyone it says you have been defeated.

CAB is a CNA

Tons of fun  CAB is a CNA  5 star

A friend first introduced me to this game a couple years ago. I think I played it constantly! I still play it occasionally and still find it to be a great stress relief. I also used it as a game for my nieces and nephews to play when they were bored and each of them has it on their phones now too.

Dee wideman

Great game  Dee wideman  5 star

I love this game it would be cool if there was a mode to stop the plague instead of make it.

Reet O

Amazing!  Reet O  5 star

Amazing mechanics and gameplay!

nowolf noram reallyalpha

Unplayable  nowolf noram reallyalpha  1 star

I’m not sure what happened to the app but on my iPhone 8 on current iOS the game just opens and crashes every time


Great game terrible sound  Uuhhhgfdrr  3 star

It has a awful terrible ringing high pitched sound that comes on and off. Honestly I can’t emphasis enough how terrible the sound is. So I play without sound but I would like to have the sound for the bubbles. Please remove the ringing. The rest of the game is still good


My opinion  K-banana  5 star

There should be a feature where, the more population you kill or weaken, the more bottles break (in the menu of each country), lowering the research budget and government strength

Disappointed Buyer 577

Horrible  Disappointed Buyer 577  1 star

Worst game ever! It’s too hard! I spent more than an hour infecting everyone and in a split second the cure is at 100%. I don’t like this game nor recommend it!


Difficult but fun  GirlWarrior06  5 star

This game is so fun fun and it takes a lot of skill and strategy. Even on the easiest mode, it is hard to kill the entire population because the cure works faster than the disease. It make me think of if this were to actually happen in real life. I love this game, and I can’t wait to to see what happens with it.


Needs Multiplayer  90807437  4 star

It is very fun to play and I would advise getting it but the developers should add in multiplayer like they have on P.C


Review  TheBitman  3 star

Crashes a lot for me but when it doesn’t it’s a fun game.

plauge inc. fan

Love this  plauge inc. fan  5 star

I really love this game! I don’t play it all the time, but it is a perfect no WiFi game!


Gothamfan  sharkman42  5 star



Love the game  Girsh18  5 star

The game is absolutely brilliant, been playing constantly since this hit the App Store, my only issue is when an island nation closes ports, airports and borders you basically lost the game as there’s no way to jump that closure, can we add fish to contaminated species like it’s listed for necroa virus or have the water contamination slowly contaminated sea water with it displaying on the ocean in read the level of spread, also I’m happy brexit is featured but if you could make it clearer as to how it impacts game play I would be much happier. This is all the issues I have after months and months of play!


Well done 👍  Leetrony  5 star

I give this game a 5/5 because it’s a really fun strategy game when your bored or want to play a fun challenging game!


Good game  Sharki301  5 star

Da best game Eva


Fun  afrodox  4 star

I think I'm evil


Awesome  Ruan943  5 star

This game is awesome!

Richdude ;-)

Soooo worth the mony  Richdude ;-)  5 star

This game is so good that I stopped playing minecraft or Terraria for three months. Infact this is the first game that i played every day for three months solid. It was only when my mom told me that I should play out side when I stopped playing the game so frequently. But i still play the game 6 out of 7 days a week


Won't download  Neotrad  1 star

Every time I try to download this game it says "can not download at this time" on both my iPad and iphone
