Cook, Serve, Delicious is a hardcore restaurant sim, one of the few in it’s genre that gives the players total control over where they want to take their restaurant. To do that, you’ll start with a few thousand dollars and twenty foods to choose from to put on your menu, as well as a host of restaurant equipment and more. Nearly everything is unlocked from the start of the game for you to purchase; this is your restaurant, and you must figure out the best strategy to get that restaurant packed with satisfied customers. Along with running your restaurant you’ll also have the opportunity to be cast in the Iron Cook television show, throw parties for offices in SherriSoda Tower, read virtual mail in your SherriSoda Tower Email account which ranges from game tips to crazy spam, from customers providing feedback to your restaurant to opportunities to being able to fund projects via “ClicknStart” and other big surprises! Good luck!
The premise is good, but the implementation is terrible. Once you start a chore you cannot do anything but that chore until it's completed (apart from instant-serving of completed foods). Chores and some foods take WAY too long, and the controls are not intuitive or very responsive. (It takes >20 button presses to "uncork" a wine bottle. If you have 4 customers lined up to order wine, at least one will leave in a huff)
The game offers to let you use a mouse to control the cooking/chores.. but in reality using a mouse would be an extreme detriment due to the speed requirements.
Customers are also extremely impatient, and will wait approximately 3-5 seconds after ordering before they leave in a huff. If you have to worry about chores, and other customers, AND everyone is being a little brat about getting their food on time.. it's just a mess
Overall, great idea. Terrible implementation, not balanced at all, extremely stressful in just the first two days.
I don't want to buy this game and find out how much harder it gets as the game is already at a Japanese level of difficulty.
