I would have to say that I actually liked this game a lot, and found myself playing it throughout the week without putting it down. O_O The gameplay is nice but a little twerky, however it's the humor that caught me and style of the overall world/characters. They poke humor at things like Iron Chef, and it's worth getting to the end of the game to see what I am talking about. It is only one player and does not offer a competition mode like "Cook or Be Cooked" so the replay value is very poor. But still a good rent.
Playing Order Up was a blast start to finish! From the opening scenes of the 2 characters drop shipping from the air plane, to the simple, but fun game play and graphics, I was slicing, dicing, baking, sautéing, cooking and laughing the entire game.
My favorite aspect of the game is buying new restaurants along with real world recipes. Once you earn enough coins you can open a new restaurant, you can add cool upgrades to make it a 5-star cuisine. I had so much fun cooking, that I set the kitchen on fire frequently. It's hilarious to hear the assistant chefs yell "fire"!
During the game, make use of assistant chefs who help speed up the cooking by taking on tasks. There is a good selection to choose from all with their unique personalties. If you want a new chef, all you have to do is hire one and fire the old one. This is fun feature.
My only 2 gripes about this game is no multi-player mode and overall lack of depth like the ability to open up more restaurants. All in all, a simple, but fun game.
I liked the game so much, I just bought it. It even comes with a chef's hat to wear while cooking!
