Full Disclosure: I played this game for about thirty minutes before writing this review. First off, the reviewers who have said that the game is frustrating - I agree with them 100%. Having to click on the customers every single time you want to know what they've ordered is ridiculous. I've never encountered another Time Management game that uses this feature (thank goodness). The graphics are only okay. If you're going to go through the trouble of making a game 3D, you should probably make sure the characters don't look ugly in the process. Sadly, that's not the case here. Gameplay is, as the title of this review states, boring and frustrating. Frustrating, mainly because of having to click and reclick on customers to see what the heck they want, and boring because... there's not much fun to do. You hand them a coffee of some kind or another, hand them a pre-made croissant or ice cream... and that's pretty much it. Oh yes, and pick up the garbage they leave behind (am I the only one who doesn't leave filth on a table at a fast food restaurant? That's not how I was raised!). The music is completely forgettable. The sounds customers make, however, is ANNOYING. Seriously, very bad, and that's in a genre where customer sounds are usually somewhat annoying. So, don't say I didn't warn you. Overall, this game is very disappointing. The premise sounded interesting. Organic coffee shop! Hey, that's kind of cool. And maybe, later on, it does get better. I'm not inclined to find out. I'll be removing this one from my computer post haste.
