With a name like Burger Island, you'd think some aspects of cooking would be implemented with the Wii remote. Nope; it's all point and click. Now I'm sure there are people who'd prefer this method, especially after an hour or so of make-believe burger flipping, but not me. The game also feels... bland. I played for a few hours before I threw in the moist towelette and in that time, it didnt seem like there was much of a challenge. Plus, all the new recipes were locked until you reach a specific level then you have to buy them. Well, that'd be all well and good if the entire game was in one unified game.
The game is spaced out into three separate restaurants, each having its own recipes and menu. In order to unlock each chains' secret recipes, u have to reach a certain point in the game and then buy them. Well, what's the point of earning the money when you have to wait to spend it anyway? You earn plenty of cash each level, enough to buy the next available recipe no problem, so its like having to unlock the item twice.

This game is LITERALY a shockwave game. the computer one is fun but to transfer it to the wii is another story. Bad Grapics,Boring Story,Horrible Sound Effects,Stupid Backround Music. The list keeps on going.
DO NOT RENT.
SAVE YOUR MONEY.
my husband and I often debate the wii game system. i must say this game only helped his argument. i previously rented cake mania on the wii and it was horrible. at that point my husband said thewii creators arent being creative enough and the games are poorly designed. well burger island which i am used to playing on the pc is just another example of poor design. i love this game on the pc and hated it on the wii. they should have taken the time to develop the game more. it was very boring, you only used one remote and the same functions over and over again. it made my wrist hurt not to mention the graphics were poor. if they werent going to do anything to improve this game and make it more interesting they should have left it on the pc. i played it and sent it back the same day. what a let down!
