Summary: Purchased this game based on the other reviews but it turned out not to be as good as the other reviewers made it sound. My family might have played the game 4 times when we first got it. Since that time no one seems interested in playing it. The game only has 4 characters to choose from, which is no big deal. The multi-player board game seems to have only one map that you can play. It would have been nice if they had at least 2 or 3 to choose from.
Summary: I had high hopes for this game - sounds like something fun to play with the entire family. I can't say that I regret purchasing it, but wouldn't exactly recommend it, either. The mini-games are essentially the same between each nationality, so they get old pretty quickly. They take way too long to load for what they are, and the screen-only dialogue is cheesy and annoying.
Summary: I got this game over the holidays, and it turns out to be a LOT of fun for multiple players. Summary of what I think: Multiplayer: Good for 2 players if they're younger, good for 3 or 4 players if they're adults. the way that the action is set up, if you're playing 3 or 4 player, then the game will randomly assign whoever's turn it is an opponent. you don't get to all play at once, so for kids, the waiting for their turn takes the fun out of it a bit.
Summary: Being a food lover, I thought maybe I would enjoy playing a wii game with restaurant situations. This game isn't for people who are really knowledgable about food. It will bore you. Its a little like mario party with moving around the board.And then you play little mini games. BUT I LOVE MARIO PARTY!!!! Doesn't even compare. Its fun to sabatoge your opponents because its funny to see the result. But the game seems a little slow moving from turn to turn.
Summary: I purchased this for my 7 year old son, as he liked playing Cooking Mama. I thought this one looked more interesting. What's nice, is that you can choose between 4 different chefs (2 female, 2 male). You can either play in a quick version, which is much like Cooking Mama, or in a longer board game version. If you just want to make recipes, go for the quick version, as there is more action that way.
