Interesting thing about cooking game simulations is the fact that it tends to be much easier to create the dishes they are attempting to to teach you how to make is easier in your own kitchen than it is using a mouse-powered kitchen. Cooking Academy 2: World Cuisine is just that kind of a sim. While it is very interesting to learn all these great dishes from China, India, Thailand, France, Italy, and Japan and other nations, it can be a bit frustrating if you don’t click that mouse in a certain direction. There are many great recipes, but unlike the 2 Tasty series, you really don’t get to keep any of these. Many of the dishes are ones we already are familiar with, and if you like exotic dishes, most likely, you might know how to make.
The expressions of your “teachers” can be a bit over exaggerated when you fail a step, but you can try it over, since you are working for a score. The better your score, the better the chance you have at winning the big check to help you start your own bistro. This the second game in the Cooking Academy series, and has a bit more focus than the first one, but it is fairly fun, but not nearly as fun as going in your kitchen and attempting to make these dishes on your own.
