I found this game very tedious and boring. The actual game play was okay, I like that it was like time managment and HOG in one, but UGH having to stop the flow to go feed a zebra? This was the first Gourmania I've played, probably wouldn't play the others, I just didn't enjoy the way it flowed.

The finding of the food ingredients keeps you sharp. I liked the variety of help in each game (the lollipops, colored cloth, gift, etc.). Even with the help, many times I only made it to Sous Chef. The items are distinctive, and if you don't know food, you will have a lot of trouble with this game - lol. I am about two-thirds done, and I have to say, the mini tasks are annoying. I guess this is where the child portion comes in. They are just too simple (feed the seal, pick up the same trash you picked up in a previous session). Building the zoo is fun as it gives you a break from the rush of finding the ingredients.
i like this game-finding ingredients for different dishes-i liked the variety of restaurants. i really enjoyed seeing the zoo come to life-having 3 choices of items that u fix in the zoo is nice. also the items in the restaurants-a sign with % on it that makes the customer pay double the price of the food, a gift that automatically gives the customer their order, coins, being able to click on a colored area to show u the current item you're looking for-all were very helpful. tho the items were in the same place when u went back to a restaurant, this did not make it unchallenging-there are so many restaurants u still have to think to play. fun game.
This game has great graphics, fun music, lots to do, buy and it is easy enough for the whole family to enjoy. It was just plain fun.

The gameplay on this one is not bad at all. It is much like others of its type - find the ingredients listed to make the recipes. The recipes don't make a whole lot of sense (ketchup and potatoes in Chinese food?), but I could ignore that. The "storyline" was pretty ridiculous. It was as though the developers felt the need to toss in every cliche element of casual gaming they could think of. Rich girl gets cut off, restaurants need improving, zoo needs fixing up, and, oh yeah, there's a random ghost for some reason. And then there's a chimpanzee with a tail. Who knows why. Still, if you ignore or laugh at the silliness the gameplay is alright. There are better games of this type.
Stunning graphics, good storyline, and some fast paced action make this one a winner. Great for the whole family! Once you start it's hard to stop. Build your zoo piece by piece, fill it with animals, and keep your customers happy in several different restaurants. Highly recommend this one! Well worth the price of admission so I bought it.

I liked this game more than I thought I would. The mix of hidden object, time management, and puzzles is great. Many different types of restaurants keeps it from becoming repetitive and boring. I liked having to earn money in order to build the zoo and not just for the sake of a high score. You have to perform small tasks for the animals which was cute at first but became a bit tedious after washing the zebra for the hundredth time. lol.
If you played one or two you will enjoy three, I bought it as soon as the one hour trial period was over. Great sequel.

This is an easy but highly enjoyable game. I like the fact that it is really busy. A lot of stuff going on makes it challenging.

Slow with no competitive edge. Why as an adult do I have to scrub a zebra? Kids would love this, but I object to the little girl ordering the champagne cocktail.

I've played this type of game before, so I knew after only 5 minutes that it was not for me. I multi-task all day at work, don't need to do it when I'm trying to relax and play a game at home. I'm sure that there will be plenty of people though that will thoroughly enjoy this game.

I liked this type of HO game where you get the chance to build or develop things aside from finding the hidden objects. In this game you develop a chain of restaurants and build a zoo with your hard earned money. It helps if you know food ingredients and I liked that the restaurants changed so you wouldn't keep using the same ones. Sometimes you need to take care of the animals in the zoo but it became boring because it was always the same. The game seemed to take a long time to get to the end and buy the last animal for the zoo. Overall, it was an enjoyable game.
This was a fun, active game. I liked finding the ingredients in the different restaurants. I really loved creating the zoo and the graphics were cute. The storyline is so/so and I got a little bored with the repetitive activities of taking care of the animals in the zoo. At first they were fun, but you can clean a zebra only so many times.... All in all I really enjoyed playing this.
