  1. A slightly new take on the tycoon genre; there's lots of pretty gals to keep oversexed gamers happy; playstyle choices make a big difference between success and failure.
  2. A pretty clear example of why budget titles can be just as worthwhile if not more so than standard retail games. At its core the game is an entertaining fast food simulation, while at the same time the peppy, joyful theme and strange mini-games are a welcome change of pace from the norm.
  3. Its lukewarm gameplay unfortunately suffers from consistently atrocious spelling problems, some questionably sexist overtones, and a badly designed interface. Other than that, Hot Dog King had some entertaining moments, and I’ve certainly played worse.

    The foundation is there, all it needs so more love and attention.
  5. The real problem with Hot Dog King is that it doesn’t know what it wants to be.
  6. There’s no customization in the game and the business model is extremely light. What the game really comes down to is keeping pretty girls happy so that you can keep watching them in their bikinis, and Hot Dog King manages to make this a pretty boring exercise.

    Love tycoon games but this one was a big disappointment. Though there are good graphics the gameplay lacks. The tutorial doesn't really Love tycoon games but this one was a big disappointment. Though there are good graphics the gameplay lacks. The tutorial doesn't really explain how to control important aspects of the game. The objective of the game is to dominate the Hot dog market but the game doesn't show you your process. Don't waste your money. Full Review »
