First impressions were very good, great graphics, good challenges, relatively easy start. Satisfying to get those stars to move onto the next restaurant. But, the game didn't really get any more challenging. When I finished the first restaurant, the next one had a budget that didn't really come from anywhere. I thought this should have been included in some sort of storyline, so there was actually a point to the first restaurant and so on. Most of the challenge came from managing the budget for each restaurant. What ingredients customers wanted that day, recipes to buy, seating/servicing all the customers for the day and improving decor to increase customer patience. This didn't change throughout the game. I thought they could have had a restaurant critic or fussy customers to make it more challanging (like most TM games). I think they missed some basic things here. That said, I did finish the game to see if there was anything better coming up in the next challenges. Sadly no:( Summing up, great looking game, but disappointed about the lack of gameplay progress/payoffs. Also, not much of a storyline exists.
