    Order Up! is a cooking-simulation game that seems to rival the features of the Cooking Mama series but it focuses a lot more on speed, multitasking and time management to ensure a table's order of multiple dishes is sent out on time rather than to simply successfully complete a single dish.

This game is able to take all of the main features from the Cooking Mama series and make it much better. Unfortunately, the game is really short with only four restaurants to manage, meaning it does not have a lot of replay value. However, if you are looking for an alternative to the Cooking Mama series, then this is certainly the game to get but don't expect to be playing for a long time. Expand

    "Cooking Mama" does have more recipes than Order Up!, but it lacks that special ingredient that keeps me coming back for more. In fact, now that I've tasted what a fleshed-out cooking-game experience can really be, it'll be hard to go back to "Cooking Mama" -- I'll definitely be coming back for more Order Up.

    Order Up! offers up just enough addictive fun to make it worth your while. It's not going to unseat Cooking Mama from her culinary throne, but it is an entertaining experience that's perfect for a few rounds of bite-sized fun.
  3. Order Up! might not be a five-star restaurant, but it still serves up a hearty meal. [Sept 2008, p.86]
