Cook Serve Delicious 2 Review
Hello everybody, Shaun Meyers here to share my thoughts on Cook Serve Delicious 2 by Vertigo Gaming Inc. I received a copy of the game for review purposes. Like all of my reviews, however, this has no effect on my thoughts and experiences.
Cook Serve Delicious 2 is a cooking themed simulation game that puts you in the role of a chef. I’ve never played the first game before so I’m unable to compare the two. So, this review will be a first time experience review.
The game utilizes a 60 hour campaign mode called Chef for Hire. In this game mode you can play alone or with a friend in a local co-op setting. You can also play through your own custom restaurant or one of the many pre-made restaurants. Each restaurant has it’s own unique menus, designs and challenges to complete. You’re given various objectives to complete to earn bronze, silver or gold medals.
When playing your own restaurant you’re able to control what is on your menu. As you level up, you’ll be able to serve more food at once. You can choose from various entree’s, side dishes and drinks in the foot catalog. You use hard earned money to purchase new foods to feature on your menu. There’s 180 different types of food you can purchase.
There is also fun facts and the origins of each food as well. I found the information to be pretty interesting and it was amusing finding out where a lot of the food originated. For example, I didn’t realize that Lemonade originated in India or that Fried Chicken originated in Scotland and West Africa.
The game also features a restaurant designer where you can customize your restaurants with a lot of different objects. These objects include tables, chairs, lighting, windows, walls, floors, art, and counters. You unlock new items in the restaurant designer as you level up or complete objectives/milestones.
Once you begin a day, you’ll need to make food from scratch. You’ll need to be quick in order to chain together combos though. Everything is on a time limit so guests will leave if you take too much time. You’ll also need to prepare food using various ingredients based on what the person wants. You’ll be given a list of ingredients that a character wants on their food and you must build it from a list of ingredients. If you mess up, there’s no going back and it’ll be a failed meal. When you fail a meal, your combo meter will drop back down to 0.
One really nice thing about this game is that the developer is continually listening to player feedback and has been hard at work on new updates and features. The next major update (As of writing this) will be adding a classic mode and food traits to name a couple things.
Overall, Cook Serve Delicious 2 is an incredibly fun game that’s continually expanding and improving. The game offers many hours of gameplay and with the coming additions the game is set to get even bigger. If you’re a fan of simulation games then Cook Serve Delicious 2 is one you will want to pick up.
Thanks for taking the time to read this review folks. I’ll be back with my next review soon, until then, happy gaming folks!
