Zoo Games Order Up!
A wholesome serving of frantic and addictive Wii Remote gameplay gets dished up for wannabe chefs with SuperVillain Studio's Order Up!
- Innovative use of the Wii Remote, building up your restaurant is an engrossing and rewarding task
- Not every cooking motion works well, stale non-cooking minigames and annoyingly small text can cause headaches
All in all, 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.
Price$ 69.95 (AUD)
Working in the food service industry is tough, gruelling work. And yet, Order Up! not only boasts compelling cooking mechanics — it also makes restaurant management a fun task. While other Wii games can cause frustration with unpolished controls, Order Up! shines brilliantly... for the most part.
Warming Up Your Kitchen
In Order Up!, you take the role of a rookie chef as you try to make a name for yourself on Port Abello, a tourist island filled with many different styles of restaurants. You start out training at the greasy Burger Face and work your way up to the ritzy Chez Haute. You'll not only have to assemble all of the dishes but also buy ingredients, hire assistant cooks, and keep your restaurant clean.
Every restaurant features a different menu based on its name. The Gravy Chug menu is filled with burgers and assorted sandwiches while the Chez Haute serves up expensive French dishes. The gameplay is relatively easy, and the game doesn't punish you unnecessarily for wrecking a few dishes here and there. I even burnt down my kitchen on my second day of work and suffered nothing more than mild shame.
Cut, Broil, Chop, and Slice
You'll spend most of your time on Port Abello fixing up various dishes for your customers. You use the Wii Remote to slice, flip, and fold ingredients; the real trick is to juggle multiple orders at once, since every meal must be served hot and quick. Being able to simultaneously handle a handful of orders in mere minutes is a rewarding experience, especially when you're tipped well for it. You can also assign certain tasks to your kitchen staff to carry out as well.
The game is a lot of fun, but the minigames that don't involve food, such as dish washing, really pull you out of the core experience. The controls can also be finicky at times — simple tasks like chopping an onion are easily mastered but more complex actions like tortilla folding can be as difficult as open heart surgery! The game also has charming visuals, but the text is ridiculously small; if you don't have a large TV, you'll literally have your nose to the screen trying to read instructions and recipes.

Brainstorming, innovation, problem solving, and negotiation have all become much more productive and valuable if people can easily collaborate in real time with minimal friction.
The print quality also does not disappoint, it’s clear, bold, doesn’t smudge and the text is perfectly sized.
The Huddle Board’s built in program; Sharp Touch Viewing software allows us to easily manipulate and edit our documents (jpegs and PDFs) all at the same time on the dashboard.
The biggest perks for me would be that it comes with easy to use and comprehensive programs that make the collaboration process a whole lot more intuitive and organic
I rate the printer as a 5 out of 5 stars as it has been able to fit seamlessly into my busy and mobile lifestyle.
It’s perfect for mobile workers. Just take it out — it’s small enough to sit anywhere — turn it on, load a sheet of paper, and start printing.
