I have to recommend you don't try this game. If you do, you'll be playing it for hours and not realize it until you're knee-deep in hungry ninjas, third-graders, and sumo wrestlers! The basic gameplay is the same as the original, and this version branches out into breakfast and dinner as well as the burger/fry main of the first. Breakfasts consist of waffles, toast, cereal, eggs, bacon, muffins, fruit toppings. Dinner consists of meatloaf, lasagna, pizza, several assorted meats and veggies, three kinds of soup, and dessert. The characters are both familiar and new. Who can forget the frustration of three punks in a row? Or the businessman throwing a hissy fit because his soda is late? Added to our favorites are ninjas, sumo wrestlers, beach bums, and quite a few others. I won't spoil it by telling you what they like, but let me assure you that it's quite a challenge! Speaking of challenge, there are several game modes. The main story line, which tells you what happened after the end of BS1, and once you've gone far enough, you unlock the relaxed and challenge modes. Relaxed is the same as in BS1, where you can play calmly, and the customers never get angry enough to leave. This is a good mode for kids, as there's no losing it. In the setup menu, you can choose your favorite meal to serve, or whether to serve all of them in successive shifts. I REALLY like this feature, as I enjoy dinner the most. Challenge mode gives the different scenarios, and you try to serve as many customers as you can in one-minute shifts. Each shift, the customers get more impatient, and harder to please. Once you've played through the storyline, expert mode is unlocked. In expert, instead of serving three customers at a time, you must serve four. Four punks is a HUGE challenge! Due to the difficulty of the higher levels, I wouldn't recommend this game for young children, although I think they would enjoy the relaxed mode. Older kids, of course, would beat the shirts off us old fogies! I can't think of a way to improve this game. I was seriously thrilled with the first one, and the second knocks its shirt off! Just make sure you have LOTS of free time to wait on your customers.
