Summary: The idea is not so bad. Combine a time management game, a hidden object game and a game where you have to find and use objects and add to that a game of building something, in this case a zoo (like the garden in Garden Scapes, or one of the many fish tank games). The result though is one big disappointment. The time mangement part of this game is like tens of restaurant games. And if you don't like time mangement, you can switch it off all together.
Summary: I haven't played the other two Gourmania games in this series, but after playing the free trial for this one, I am not enthusiastic about trying the other two. The main character (I don't remember her name, but she looks a lot like Paris Hilton with curly hair) is cut off from the family money because her father feels she doesn't know the value of a hard day's work. But this SAME father gives her control of ALL THE FAMILY RESTAURANTS. Does this seem strange to you?
