Pandemic got old for me very quickly. It seems to suffer very easily from the "one player telling everyone else what to do" problem that some co-op games have. It's almost like a puzzle game, trying to figure out the exact sequence to take when fighting the diseases across the map.
Maybe it's because I'm very conscious that it might be a problem, but I don't usually find that to be a problem when I'm playing a co-op game. If I'm the most experience player, I usually try and take a back seat in the decision making process, and if everyone's equally experienced but someone's starting to try and run the show, I'll sometimes jump in and act as a spoiler to present other options, forcing everyone to speak up.
I'll check out Flash Point though. I like me some co-ops, and it's relatively inexpensive.
