Product Description

Order Up is a delicious blend of precision cuisine crafting and culinary empire building, all rolled into a light and flaky crust of memorable characters and humorous situations. With the Wii Remote in hand, the player will be guided from burger to chateaubriand; taught every aspect of food preparation and presentation. For anyone who has dreamed of becoming a world-class chef or restaurant mogul or both!, Order Up will deliver. The core game play of Order Up is cooking, from preparation to presentation. Preparation consists of "cutting and cooking" while Presentation refers to garnishes and "flourishes" - e.g. sauce drizzled over a dish to please the eye or the use of flame (flambé) for dramatic effect. Beyond the core, game play includes rising through the ranks of the culinary world from fast-food to world-class restaurants as chef and owner while ever-expanding your cookbook of recipes and ever-improving the quality of your equipment. Along the way you will face demanding patrons, discriminating food critics…and at the pinnacle of your fame in the world of fine cuisine you will be invited to complete in the, "Fortified Chef World Challenge" - an Iron Chef-style cooking competition.

As I've mentioned in other reviews, the Wii is not my console of choice. I bought it for my wife to keep her busy while I logged hours in front of the Xbox 360.

I bought Order Up for my wife as a birthday gift. I feel bad that three days later, she's logged about 45 minutes at the controls, and I've beaten the game at 5 hours, 59 minutes in.

The game is simply that addictive. From the first burger you make until the last visit from the food critic at "Chez Haute" restaurant, you will not want to put this game down.

Your first reaction might be to think that at 6 hours, this game is very short. This isn't untrue, but this is a game that better rewards the casual player. In my course through the game, I served less than 10 "non-perfect" dishes. I refused to serve "good" food, and instead would throw food away multiple times until earning a "perfect" score. Also, by mastering the art of spicing (which is clearly defined within the game) I was able to generate upwards of $200 per table served, and would end a "work day" with over $800 in the bank. Because of this I was easily able to keep my spices stocked, hire the best employees, and upgrade my kitchen very quickly. As a result I made money very fast, and progressed through the game with lightning speed. My wife on the other hand is not nearly as perfectionist, and is satisfied with serving Good or OK dishes. This can end up making for a longer play through the game. I say this as a good thing though - this game will entertain her much longer than it did myself.

Many reviews from gaming sites gave less than satisfactory remarks on the controls, saying that everything except folding burritos or omelettes worked well. This is simply not true.

This game was a great and new approach to added cooking genre of games. Although fun, I feel it was somehow rushed as well.

Story in a nutshell:
You start the game working at a basic restaurant,and as you get more stars you get to upgrade to the next level restaurant to become the ultimate cook in the end.

Different variety of restaurants to own

Many different recipes that pertain to the restaurant (Italian,

Cook with spices

Ability to buy items (Spices, Upgrade you equipment, etc)

Hire help each with different abilities

Great and wonderful design style

Little mini-games (Health Inspector,flicking rats, etc.)

A little shopping place to buy your spices or special recipes

Meet the needs of certain customers by putting in spices they like

Has a humor aspect

WAY TOO SHORT! Took me only 7 hours to beat, but I played the game on easy and still did not unlock the other special recipes so you could possibly be looking at 10-12 hours of game play. Still it would have been nice to have two more restaurants to at least fill the void possibly a Japanese, Chinese or Indian restaurant.

Repetitive at times, although there were many recipes it seemed you always did the same things with the Wii remote, nothing new or inventive many times when preparing the food.

The market only had two places to explore. It would have been nice to have a variety of markets each with it's own type of spices (Italian, Asian, etc.). It also would have been nice to walk around the market square or explore the island

Not able to improve your hired help or have them level up to become better chefs.

I am fairly new to wii, and I am a casual gamer. I enjoyed this game quite a bit. I did try Cooking Mama, and I liked this game more. You had more things to do than just to cook. You could control your chefs, earn new upgrades, and you had some control in the restaurant itself, and I liked these challenges.

For me the learning curve on this game hasn't been too much, I can see that if you are a more serious gamer or if you are looking for a lot of game play out of this game, it may be lacking, as the story line doesn't last too long. The graphics are decent, but the limited vocals can get a little annoying, but many are very clever.

All in all I think this is a good game. I liked that it wasn't too hard, I don't play everday. If you are a serious gamer this may not be your best option or you may want to wait until the price on this game goes down. I am definately hopeful they will make a 2nd edition, because I will definately be picking it up.

This game is tons of fun! It is a great cooking title, and will keep you busy and entertained for hours. You will have so much fun creating and cooking a huge variety of dishes, and also ordering your staff to do certain cooking tasks! It will excite you to earn money and buy new ingredients, spices, cooking tools, and restaurants. Great game all-around. With loads of fun minigames, you'll never get bored. I compare this (favorably) to Cooking Mama, because you don't just cook, you get to manage an entire restaurant!

From my eight year old (transcribed directly):

"This is a very fun game. First you start out by choosing a character and then the character gets basic training at Burgerface restaurant. You earn coins as you learn how to run a restaurant. You can buy equipment and your own restaurant with the coins and hire people to help you run your own restaurant. You have to take orders, cook food, and keep the customers happy in the game. As you get more coins you can buy spices to improve your food and you can can even buy special deals for your restaurant's menu from the black market. And you also have to keep the assistants from falling asleep and keep the health inspector satisfied with the quality of your restaurant. And as your restaurant gets better, you earn stars that let you fly to different places and get even nicer restaurants that you can run. It's a very fun game and I think all kids should try it."
