  • Summary: [Xbox Live Arcade] Diner Dash, the number one PC time-management game has landed onto Xbox LIVE! Guide Flo, a former office-worker turned restaurateur, as she builds up her diner empire. Go online and face players in head to head matches to see who's the best Flo. Join up with a friend or another player online for a Team Dash game where your team takes on six other players to see whose diner is the best in town. Fresh look: Fresh looks are the special of the day, as Flo, her customers, and her restaurants come to life in three dimensions and in high definition graphics. Fast action: Take on all the different diners with 10 levels in each. Seat patrons, take their order, deliver their food, take their payment, and bus their table as efficiently as possible within the time limit allowed. Your customers will lose patience and leave if they aren't satisfied. Remember, service with a smile! Pick up and play: Two all-new control schemes are designed specifically for your controller, a point and click style with hotkeys, and an arcade style where you directly control Flo as she runs around. Multiplayer: Hop online for some brand-new eight-person multiplayer in Team Dash Mode, and 1-on-1 in Head to Head Mode. [Hudson Entertainment] Expand

  1. Overall this is a typical XBLA porting of a great game; easily identifiable, playable and most of all enjoyable.
  2. The port's biggest hurdle of overcoming the lack of mouse support seems to be handled pretty well. It doesn't reinvent the wheel when it comes to Diner Dash, but the gameplay is so addictive and fun that it doesn't really need to.
  3. Despite being able to play this game for free on alternative platforms, it's well worthy of the 800 MSPs asked – definitely one to check out.
  4. Diner Dash is a classic title and a great addition to XBox Live Arcade.
  5. It's a decent port to 360 with some key changes to the controls to make it work better on a console, but this recipe of Diner Dash lacks some spice. [July 2009, p.77]
  6. The game is fun enough at its core to have made it very popular with the PC casual gamer crowd, but as an Xbox Live Arcade title it just falls short.
  7. Tricky and addictive. [Issue#54, p.105]
