A look at Order Up! Video game for the Nintendo Wii

Kids are rookie chefs in a fun and engaging new game for the Wii, Order Up!.

What’s special about this game is that it not only allows kids to work with ingredients and recipes, it is also a restaurant management game.

New recipes and equipment are unlocked along the way. In comparison to Cooking Mama for the Wii, Order Up is richer in gameplay, offering definite goals and a management angle that older kids will enjoy more. Its controls are a little trickier, however. This game is missing a multi-player mode, which would have boosted our ratings of the game considerably. For more information, user reviews, or to buy: Order...
