Got a chance to try this at UK Games Expo this weekend. They had it set up on three tables with what looked liked final or close to final production quality.
First impressions - quick to pick up the rules, frantic play. Players either loved or hated the time limit. On our table 3 loved it and 1 less so. If you like to take time to analyse your turn, you will be challenged.

Obviously the same genre, but it’s as different from either of them as Fuse and Flatline are from each other I’d say. It sits in between them as far as time and complexity, but closer to Fuse for both. It’s also the most thematic of the three.

I have both FUSE and Flatline (love them!) and you've just sold Pandemic: Rapid Response to me with that comment Kane! I'm off to pre-order it now...
