I Diner Dash är tempot högt och spelandet beroendeframkallande. Det hade dock inte lidit av högre svårighetsgrad och fler banor.
Diner Dash for the PSP might not be the best portable version of this arcade-styled game but for those who enjoyed it the first time you might want to consider buying this for your Sony handheld. Then again, if you own a Nintendo DS, you might want to buy the DS version instead for the touch screen controls.
Diner Dash: Sizzle & Serve is a pretty good PSP game where fast reflexes will win you the day, or tips in this case. Diner Dash is a pretty addictive game and stands as one of those easy to pick and play games for fun. If you want a simple to play game that only requires reflexes and little thinking Diner Dash: Sizzle & Serve may just be for you.
The one thing hurting Diner Dash is its price: at the release of the game it's a full-priced DS game and only a slightly reduced price for the PSP. That's far too much to pay for a game you can download in its original form for the PC at a much cheaper cost. In a few months it'll most likely come down to a more acceptable level ($20 bucks), and that's when you should pounce -- the game's fun and frantic, but it doesn't really offer much than its face-value production.
At $30 it's difficult to wholeheartedly recommend Diner Dash on the PSP or DS, especially when you can play a limited version of the game for free on the PC or get the full version for just $20. Sure, it's fun while it lasts, but once it's over there's very little here to get you to revisit it.
Hat's geschmeckt? Danke, gut. Aber eine etwas größere Portion Knobelspaß wäre für den Preis schon drin gewesen. Diner Dash ist zwar gehaltvoller als das arg magere Pogo Island von Electronic Arts, bleibt aber trotzdem eher ein Snack für den kleinen Hunger zwischendurch. Schließlich stehen gerade einmal die Karriere, ein Endlos-Modus für Highscore-Jäger und die Zweispieler-Variante auf der Speisekarte. Zunächst motiviert es ungemein, immer mehr Gäste gleichzeitig zu bedienen und alles im Auge zu behalten. Seid euch aber im Klaren drüber, dass es schnell unheimlich hektisch wird und euch das Spiel keine Pause zum Durchatmen lässt. Dadurch wurde mir das Geracker trotz vieler Gästetypen und Restaurant-Verbesserungen schnell zu monoton und stressig. Wer ohnehin Probleme damit hat, tausend Sachen gleichzeitig zu erledigen, sollte das Spielen lieber der Freundin überlassen. Wenn sie beschäftigt ist, habt ihr mehr Zeit für echte Männersachen wie z.B. die Halo 3-Beta, how how how!
Despite it's fast expiration date and overly basic gameplay, Diner Dash is a moderately enjoyable title. Earlier qualms over the face of the game's content were unjustified; if you're going to make a game about being a waitress, this is exactly how you do it. The screaming-with-your-hair-on-fire pace tries it's best to ascend Flo & Co to above average heights, but they're pulled right back down by the a non nonchalant lack of depth and borderline ridiculous nature of the control scheme. The game should be hard, yes, but the artificial degree of control imbalanced difficulty is not a welcomed feature. Dine with caution.
Outside of running through your 50-level career or seeing how far you can get in an endless shift, there isn't much to do. You can customize your restaurant and appearance very minimally, but it's the same old game after a few levels. It's just addicting enough for you to stick it out for the entirety of the game, but unless you're in the mood for a stress headache you probably won't bust it out again.
Diner Dash is a simple and addictive arcade-style game that is easy to get into. I understand where its roots lie but all around the experience didn't feel complete somehow. The gameplay yields little to no variety, the graphics are painfully simplistic, and the sound is very repetitive. This may be a fun one to take on the road with you but unless you're a fan of the series I'd say this is a rental at best.
The same can be said about the game as a whole. Even though the difficulty ramps up dramatically halfway through Career mode, dedicated gamers will be able to complete the whole thing in a day, if they don't get tired of fighting the poorly designed controls before then. More casual gamers will likely get so frustrated with the impossible pace of the later levels that they'll give up before completing it. And charging thirty bucks for the experience -- ten bucks more than any other Diner Dash game -- prices it out of the fun little novelty niche and puts it in the range of games that have a lot more content to offer. Even if you're already a fan of the series, the PSP version of Sizzle & Serve will likely leave a bad taste in your mouth.
