4.0 out of 5 stars Addictive game for Top Chef fans! January 2, 2009
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
Now is your chance to really be a Top Chef (even if like me - you don't really cook)! With 15 "episodes" that have you compete in both quick fire and elimination challenges matching up appropriate ingredients as quick-as-you can, this is a perfect (and addictive) gift for any Top Chef fan. Here's the upsides, downsides and tips for this game I've found:

Upsides:
1. Challenges escalate in toughness - while teaching you what you need to succeed in future ones. (Tip: read all the dialogue at scorings, between contestants and by "Anna" your chef when she's thinking about a challenge to get tips on how to succeed!)

2. It's true to the Top Chef format.
What's available in your pantry to use for each challenge changes, and it rates each of your dishes from 1 to 5 stars. (It shows and describes your final dish, and there's a great deal of odd satisfaction that occurs when you creat a 5-star one!)

3. Great on-going playability.
Most of the challenges require you to make multiple dishes. So, while it seems like only 15 episodes, you literally have to create 100's of dishes. Even when you succeed through all the levels - you'll want to play again!

Downsides:
1. Graphics are a bit simple.
In this day and age, the graphics will seem antiquated to some, "Anna" the chef representing you does wierd things like chop "soy sauce", Tom and Padma have a set of standard responses they make when judging your dishes.

2. Two of the power-ups (special powers) are tricky and hard to use, it takes a little while to master them.
There's a video walk-through on Bravo's topchefthegame site that's pretty much a necessity for understanding it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Top Chef really cooks! November 11, 2008
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
I really liked this game.

It captures the spirit of the show really well. The Quickfire and Elimination Challenges are really fun. The game play is easy to pick up, but challenging enough to make me want to keep playing.

I thought it was clever that if you have some cooking knowledge it can benefit you in the game. But novices don't need to worry. you can pick up a lot of cooking tips as you go.

Buy this game for not just your Top Chef fan friends, but your casual game fan friends too!

5.0 out of 5 stars Top Notch Top Chef November 14, 2008
I was so happy to see this game on Amazon. I am a real cooking nut and I love anything that supports my hobby. Top Chef, The Game was fun, challenging and easy to play; it kept me interested and I was surprised to have learned some new ideas as well.

My young adult children were interested in playing, in spite of their limited cooking experience. I think I will be making "starter gourmet cooking baskets" for the holidays and will be sure to include a Top Chef game in each! This would also make a great gift for that 50's to 60's party you get invited to for your baby boomer friends or think of including it with a shower gift for young newlyweds.

Whatever the occasion, what could be better than a great get together with food and fun!

4.0 out of 5 stars Learn while you play... March 6, 2009
Verified Purchase
Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
This game is lots of fun. The other reviewers have described the game play very well, so I won't go into that. This game is pretty true to the Top Chef format. You actually learn quite a bit about food while playing the game. It would've been nice if you could've built your own character chef. One aggravating thing is that not all of your food items are always available in your characters pantry, I think that, that really limits game play. Otherwise, great game.

4.0 out of 5 stars Fun March 7, 2015
By Celeste
Verified Purchase
This game is fun to play. It won't teach you anything about cooking techniques, but it does teach a lot about flavors and flavor combinations. If you ever try to create a new recipe, or just change an existing recipe, this game might give a little bit of inspiration. I just wish this game had a bigger, more dramatic ending (I worked hard to beat that final round!).

2.0 out of 5 stars Top Chef: The Game: Please Pack Your Knives... February 16, 2009
Fun: 2.0 out of 5 stars   
This game may be fun for people who like to cook and know their herbs, flavors, textures, etc. But for those of us who are not educated in the culinary arts, it is mind boggling. I LOVE the show, but the computer game was not my favorite.
