"Has a cooking game succeeded when it makes you hungry while playing? If the test is to produce food that you hope tastes as good as it looks, Order Up passes. We're all lucky that violent games don't make us want to go out and copy what we see, but Order Up! definitely made us want to go into the kitchen and have our way with a ham hock or a catfish. The best part of the game apart from the food is the sense that you are actually working in a kitchen, in a restaurant, in a town. With real citizens, even! The setting of the game is an important part of differentiating Order Up! from others in this category that end up as nice kitchen simulators, but not much more."
