I don't know why people say this game is hard. I finished the game in only a couple of days by myself. If you like easy to play games like Cake Mania then you will like this one. I like these kinds of games but once you've won there is no need to play again.
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.
