I laughed at times during the game over what Gordon said to you. It's a lot milder language than the actual show. Each level gets harder and harder. I was able to do each challenge perfectly but when it came to service I wasn't so great. You have to seat customers, take their orders, serve it, clear their dishes, etc. I got frustrated as I wanted the guy to move faster to do something but there was only so fast he'd move. I'd be clicking on the blue light on a table a while before he finally responded. Therefore due to this I was slow with my service all the way around. I played with it for 90 minutes to 2 hours before growing tired of playing it. It wasn't that much fun and you could easily complete this game in a day if you had time to devote to it and how many times you failed to complete a day's service. They did offer you some real recipes and how to prepare them which I thought was cool but overall the game was very repetitive and each level it added another ingredient or two. You had to make sure that you cooked all the dishes so they were ready at the same time. You'd have to prepare some food ingredients twice as you had a couple of different customers at the same table wanting different combos. of the food which just added to the complication of the game as you advanced in it. While the food was preparing you have to check you dining room as new customers arrived, take their orders, get the first order out plus clean tables, get new customers, take their orders plus cook the orders too. It can get pretty complicated as time went by. I prefer the real show to the game.
As a huge fan of Hells Kitchen I was very excited when this game came out. Unfortunately the most exciting thing about the game is the packaging. It is weak at best. My guess is that Chef Ramsay never played it as I have a hard time believing this would have met his seemingly strict standards. I would love to see this game revamped and brought back.
