  1. You can admire the complexity and new ideas in Restaurant Empire 2, like cafés or patisseries but you can’t deny the confusing controls and the fact it soon gets repetitive and boring. [Aug 2009]

Graphics are excellent and the new recipes and things to pretty up your restaurants are awesome looking.
