    Cooking Simulator is fun, despite its tedious career mode. There’s a lot of detail tot he different recipes and it takes a lot of focus to be successful. This is partly so because of the controls which aren’t always too responsive and some technical hiccups. Cooking Simulator isn’t a full meal, but a great snack.

    In spite of the fumbling control, which requires pixel-precise working, I am now able to turn meat and fish in the pan quite well.

    Limited but fun while it lasts. Slicing, blending, and frying is a lot of fun, although not quite as much as causing enough trouble to make Gordon Ramsey wince. Great to pick up and play to let off some steam, but don't expect that appetite to last.

    Cooking Simulator is an entertaining simulation game that allows you to cook to your heart’s content without the real-life mess and can easily consume a few hours of your time, but does suffer from several glitches, can feel repetitive, and is in need of future optimizations.

    Gutes Spiel, Grafik auch ansprechend. Mehr Gerichte wären toll, ansonsten ist das Game wirklich empfehlenswert.

I love cooking, and this game has been on my radar for a long time. The controls are a bit weird at first, but like anything you need to practice your technique. One of the best sims that Ive ever played. Expand

Every time I saw it on my home screen i loaded it up and go into the game and then just lost all my motivation when I get into it. Might just be me but it's just kinda boring. Although when I was having someone watch and we were just messing around breaking **** it was so funny, but eventually destroying everything too got pretty boring. Expand

    On the one hand, the game is okay. Graphics are nice. The gameplay is charmingly wonky to a fault, and it's hard to do anything precisely.On the one hand, the game is okay. Graphics are nice. The gameplay is charmingly wonky to a fault, and it's hard to do anything precisely.

    You can spend a lot of time just having fun in your kitchen doing nothing in particular in the Sandbox mode, which I think provides a nice mental break.

    Low score is because they were selling the game on GOG, and I bought it hoping for the Cakes and Cookies expansion. They dropped support for the GOG version with no olive branch extended, so to speak, to buy it on other platforms, no last patches to at least bring the game up to parity with other versions.

    So I paid for the last version of the game on that platform, which still advertises the Cakes and Cookies DLC that is never coming to GOG because they literally removed it from sale and dropped support.

    Thanks for advertising a DLC I can't get, and don't trust them to suddenly stop support of other versions without communicating it.
