Pandemic: The Board Game
Top Critic Average
Pandemic: The Board Game is a perfectly functional version of the popular board game, now available for you to play on-the-go in solo mode or with some friends in local co-op.
It’s a shame that the video game version of Pandemic is disappointing, because the board game itself is a lot of fun.
For better or worse, Pandemic on Switch is little more than a digital recreation of the hit board game that you can enjoy solo or grouped-up. The lack of features, side modes, online play and presentation are disappointing, but at its core this is still one of the more fun cooperative board games I've ever played in a compact form on the Switch for a reasonable price.
It feels like they took a lot of the mobile assets and didn't put much care into resizing them for the PC. With that being said, overall, Pandemic is a pretty fun and challenging game that's very topical at this point in time.
This console version of the digital Pandemic conversion leaves a lot to be desired, with a very inaccessible setup.
