Fun for the whole family

on 1/20/2009

I have tried other cooking games before but this tops all of them. This is a very addicting game. The only thing is that all the characters are all the same in every scene. My 14 and 10 year old children love it. I even had the husband cooking. Once when your first order is up you wont be able to put it down.

Product Overview

Order Up is a delicious blend of precision cuisine crafting and culinary empire building, all rolled into a light and flaky crust of memorable characters and humorous situations. With the Wii Remote in hand, the player will be guided from burger to chateaubriand; taught every aspect of food preparation and presentation. For anyone who has dreamed of becoming a world-class chef or restaurant mogul or both!, Order Up will deliver. The core game play of Order Up is cooking, from preparation to presentation. Preparation consists of "cutting and cooking" while Presentation refers to garnishes and "flourishes" - e.g. sauce drizzled over a dish to please the eye or the use of flame (flambé) for dramatic effect. Beyond the core, game play includes rising through the ranks of the culinary world from fast-food to world-class restaurants as chef and owner while ever-expanding your cookbook of recipes and ever-improving the quality of your equipment. Along the way you will face demanding patrons, discriminating food critics…and at the pinnacle of your fame in the world of fine cuisine you will be invited to complete in the, "Fortified Chef World Challenge" - an Iron Chef-style cooking competition.

Review In addition to the cooking activities, Order Up! includes a smattering of mini-games, such as the need to occasionally shake your Wii Remote to wake up dozing assistants and scrubbing dirt from the dishes when the Health Inspector makes a surprise visit. But these activities are really sporadic; cooking provides the core gameplay of Order Up!, and it provides it very well. Cooking Mama seemed like an insurmountable franchise at one time, but Order Up! has -- at least to this editor -- added just the right amount of gameplay spice to surpass the competition. Look out, Mama, there's a hot new chef in town, and he's got a whole restaurant full of happy patrons.

Review The gameplay is relatively easy, and the game doesn't punish you unnecessarily for wrecking a few dishes here and there. I even burnt down my kitchen on my second day of work and suffered nothing more than mild shame....Order Up! offers up just enough addictive fun to make it worth your while. It's not going to unseat Cooking Mama from her culinary throne, but it is an entertaining experience that's perfect for a few rounds of bite-sized fun.
