Summary: This game is soooo fun! I thought it would be too difficult for my 7-year old, but there is a "kiddie mode" and he loves it. To play, each of us has a task...whether it be cooking the burgers, adding veggies or condiments. Its much easier with multiple players. Id say Im pretty good with time management games, but even I would have a hard time trying to complete the orders by myself.
Summary: I bought this for our daughters who seem to love assembly-type games, but this one just doesn't hold their interest. I tried to play it myself and I couldn't keep up with all the orders either! It moves along very quickly and there doesn't seem to be much of a learning curve or a slower beginner level. You're supposed to jump right in and make the food requested right now before time runs out! Not much fun when all your stuff isn't done fast enough or good enough..
Summary: If you love Burger Island on your PC you will love it on your wii. Although not a typical wii game that requires you to physically move it still makes your arms tired given that you have to move the remote around quite a bit.
Summary: Sat down with 3 other friends, popped in this game, and had a blast. Basically you are in charge of a burger joint that makes fries, burgers, and shakes. Each round consists of you making just one of the 3 items, but with increasing variety and complexity. The burgers start out with just a couple of ingredients and then build to include 2 different kinds of patties to grill (veggie and regular) and then have a ton of toppings to go with them.
Summary: I bought this game for my 6 and 8 year olds. They were on vacation when it arrived so I broke it open to give it a try... and then I couldn't put it down! The concept is so simple but the execution is harder than it looks. Very addictive, even for adults!
Summary: This game is fantastic exercise for executive functions of your brain. This game forces you to prioritize, order, reguate emotions, and sequence fine motor activities under increasing time pressure. GREAT pre-frontal lobe exercise for those with ADD/ADHD.
Summary: After not seeing any reviews for this game I wasn't sure if I should purchase it or not. After just receiving a Wii System for Christmas I wanted to build my collection of games for the Wii System and this was by far my best choice. I am a 40 year old male and some of the games I purchashed where actually more for kids like Cooking Mama, Cold Stone Creamery and The Sims kingdom. My friend has Burger Island on the DS and suggested I might like it.
