    It's actually very good. [Issue#80, p.103]

    BurgerTime World Tour is an incredible revamp of the original's gameplay. It takes everything good about it and improves upon it, while adding a lot of gameplay variety and a very replayable multi-player game. Anyone who liked the original should get this, and even those like myself who were frustrated by it should try it out because it's a lot more forgiving than the first, while also giving you the option to make it harder if you find it to be too easy. There's a lot of fun to be had here, and for $10, it's an easy recommendation to buy ASAP.

    BurgerTime: World Tour is certainly better than you might expect, even if it fails in several unfortunate ways. Poor presentation and collision detection aside, MonkeyPaw Games has a solid effort that does a good job at making this thirty year old game relevant for the 21st century.

    It's kind of fun for a quick game, but considering how quickly BurgerTime: World Tour turns boring, your 800 MSP may still be better spent elsewhere.

    Simplicity is its strong suit, but that doesn't benefit BurgerTime World Tour very much. It's a modernization of gaming's roots that doesn't embrace anything games have done better since.

    BurgerTime World Tour is a pretty poor remake of the original. A lot has changed, making this remake way too complicated. BurgerTime World Tour is a great example of why a lot of old games don't need a remake.
  7. There was no need to reheat this, and no need for you to suffer it. [Feb 2012, p.111]

    I was very happy with my purchase. BurgerTime was a big part of my gaming lifestyle as I kid and it's really refreshing to have the series come back. The new enemies and re-done gameplay is refreshing as it seems like everything was improved from the ground up. Now I have a game that I can finally use to feed my late night hunger as well! Expand

    Perhaps my judgment is clouded by my rose colored memories of the original, but I love this game and so do my kids. Don't read too much into the professional reviews - this game plays really well and has a huge replay value (the idea is to keep bettering your times), it's also fun, silly and one of the best modernisations of a very basic old game that Ive ever played (and I've been gaming for 30 years). For $10, you couldn't ask for more. Having said all that, I think its multiplayer is a bit poor. It uses a split screen system and I think having all the players together would be better. Expand

    The fact that this game exists is enough for many retro gamers to get excited. BurgerTime is a fond memory of mine and a piece of my childhood. I love how the new version revisits the classic and does above and beyond what I expected. Multiplayer is fun and these burgers are huge! Just wish more people could buy the game so I have more competition when playing online! Expand

    It's been so long since the original! This new evolved version is very challenging, but is a blast when playing with friends or online. I bought this on Xbox Live Arcade right when it came out and am still trying to increase my rank in the online leaderboards. Careful for that jumping pickle though Expand
