  • Summary: Hell's Kitchen: The Video Game is based on the U.S. television program world-renowned Chef Gordon Ramsay. The game allows players to experience the show’s high-pressure kitchen and dining room challenges as a faithfully rendered 3D Chef Ramsay watches their every move. After executing the three phases of an order – preparation, cooking and service – Chef Gordon Ramsay scores each meal. As they progress through the game, players are rewarded with access to recipes from Chef Ramsay's own repertoire. Chef Ramsay watches players' every move and judges them as they progress by yelling at them, praising them or shutting down the kitchen if their skills don't meet his expectations. As players progress, they'll gain access to authentic Gordon Ramsay recipes, including many that are offered exclusively to game owners. In Career Mode, players can earn stars to build their way up from a Single-Star restaurant to a prestigious Five-Star establishment. As the player advances through the ranks, their star rating advances and the recipes become more varied and intricate. In Arcade Mode, the pressure builds as customers become increasingly demanding. Players are challenged to keep up with the pressure before time is up, or Chef Ramsay loses patience and closes the kitchen. [Ubisoft] Expand

  1. Hell’s Kitchen is an example of how something so simple can become so addictive. You will find yourself going back to increase your final score.
  2. At least the game bit's quite good fun. The visuals are too small and too brown, but the gameplay's still classic; it's a bit like playing chess with pieces made of rat plops.

    The sheer, mind-boggling repetitiveness of the game nullifies that; the only thing Hell's Kitchen teaches you to do is tap on the screen quickly.
  4. Granted, we quite like the animated Gordon Ramsay but the rest really is a shambles. [Dec 2008, p.100]
