Summary: Parents need to know that this cooking game is based on the TV show of the same name and features the nasty Chef Ramsay. Ramsay gets angry easily and then rants at the player. He will call you names including a "donkey" when you don't do recipes correctly. This isn't a game for kids or adults who are sensitive about verbal abuse. The game does feature real recipes.
Conclusion: Ramsay might get paid to be a total jerk, but his psychotic bravado lends a great deal of excitement to the culinary gaming genre. Admittedly, casual cooking games can be extremely addictive, but few turn up the heat as much as Hell's Kitchen. Getting cursed out because customers are getting $@%*# impatient or because you nearly set the $@%*# kitchen on fire is always worth a chuckle.
Excerpt: First Impressions My reaction is Every once in a while there comes a game that is so random, you just can’t help playing it to find out what it’s about. Hell’s Kitchen for the Wii is one such game – based on the hit TV series, the game brings the one and only Gordon Ramsey to your Wii in a frantic game of flying ingredients and bossy customers.
