But no, our initial knee-jerk conclusions aside, Order Up! is less of a Cooking Mama clone and more of a Diner Dash and Mama hybrid. Taking some addicting restaurant sim elements from Diner Dash and adding motion-controlled cooking mechanics, this Wii game goes a bit deeper than just fake-chopping onions.
Your plucky little chef begins with a rundown-looking American-style joint, featuring a menu of recognizable items like burgers, fries and pancakes. (Eventually, you outgrow these digs and move onto higher class restaurants.) At the start of each day, you can attend to managerial duties in front of your restaurant, such as calling in fresh produce, adjusting the menu specials, and hiring additional chefs from the wanted ads. Each of these affects how your restaurant operates, but each also costs money, so before you can spruce up the place (and you'll want to, as every so often, food critics will stop by to rate your establishment), you have to get to serving customers."
