Fugazo Games have released the second
part of their hit Cooking Academy, and the sequel preserves all the
great features of the original game. Delicious food to cook, lots of
information on various world cuisines and addictive simulation game
play – all this makes Cooking Academy 2: World Cuisine a perfect choice
for action gamers.
Consider yourself a skillful cook? Welcome to Fugazoville!
only here the annual World Culinary Workshop is held, and only here you
can improve your culinary skills even more. Especially if we take into
account that the most renowned chefs from all over the world (namely,
China, Japan, Italy, France, Thailand and others) have given their
consent to train you and other contestants and reveal the secrets of
their national cuisines. A great chance to learn for a young aspiring
student, not to mention the opportunity to win $1,000,000 and start
your own restaurant, don’t you think? So, meet your first instructor
and start cooking!
The game play is mostly taken from the first Cooking Academy,
though it’s better balanced now and some new exciting tasks are added.
The game is divided into stages organized by countries, and in each
national cuisines you’ll have a bunch of exotic dishes to practice, and
then you can take exams in order to proceed to the next country and its
peculiarities. You choose which dishes to try first, and you can replay
any recipe at any moment in order to get a better score.
that you get for every dish is its history, tradition of serving and
other interesting facts about what you are going to cook. Then you can
proceed to the cooking itself, step by step. And here the diversity of
tasks is amazing, and surely enough not to make you bored. Though you
only use your mouse, the tasks will require both speed and accuracy, as
you need to fulfill a certain number of actions within a tough time
limit and in a given sequence. You will dice and slice all possible
types of food using your mouse for directing the knife, then you’ll add
ingredients in a correct order (the visual clues may be a bit confusing
sometimes, so the tasks can become really challenging), stir and grate,
fold fortune cookies and break eggs under an absolutely correct angle
and with absolutely precise strength, set temperature and watch you
buns, for example, turn golden brown and not a shade darker. Most of
the tasks will require your complete attention and perfect timing, so
sometimes you’ll really need to replay certain steps in order to get
enough stars to proceed (stars are used for evaluating your hard work –
and the judges are strict, I should say).
The graphics are great – nothing more to say, you have to see it by
your own eyes. And the music, changing from stage to stage to match the
national environment, creates a nice background.
