If you like “Tycoon”-style games or business simulations you owe yourself to try Restaurant Empire II. It might be daunting and require a lot of micromanagement, but there is a lot of depth to it, much more so than the typical budget tycoon game. But if you hate slow-paced games, games that require too much micromanagement or too many hours of learning, or you simply hate hard games, then I suggest you stay far away from this game.

Overall this is a very good restaurant simulator, but the experience left me feeling something was missing. I am sure there are people who will enjoy this game, but I personally found the game to be far too involved. If you are looking for a training tool for running your own restaurant, then this game could well give you some insight into the uphill struggle on which you are about to embark.

Kommt Ihnen Restaurant Empire 2 bekannt vor? Dann haben Sie vermutlich Hotel Gigant 2 gespielt oder unseren Test studiert. Denn die Hotelsimulation ähnelt dem Restaurant-Spiel frappierend, obwohl ich jetzt immerhin auf dem Damen- und Herren-WC die gleichen Spiegel aufhängen darf. Ein Blick in die Credits erklärt die Doppelung: Beide Titel stammen von Enlight Software, dem Studio von Trevor Chan (Capitalism). Falls Sie das Hotelspiel also schon haben, brauchen Sie seinen anstrengenden Restaurant-Bruder nun wirklich nicht.

More is better, but it does not justify keeping everything else exactly the same. Even the live performers, a potentially interesting addition, have about the same impact as placing a couple of paintings on the wall, so the interest wanes quickly. Really, none of these things have any impact on the core game at all, and that’s a horrible and cheap thing for a sequel to do. The fact that the problems the original game had, namely the interface with its plentiful shortcomings, still remain shows the single focus of the development team: add objects and that’s enough. This is more like Restaurant Empire 1.5, or an expansion pack, than a true sequel. Of course, the $20 price tag reflects that thinking somewhat, but I still deride the lack of significant changes with six years of passed time. Indeed, the feeling of déjà vu is strong with this one.
The average gamer will become frustrated quickly and move on, but those who enjoy being in control of the tiniest of details will find lots to keep themselves occupied. If nothing else, it’ll give you a chance to put your Wharton MBA to good use.
