Food Panic has been designed for the "casual" gamer or for kids,
even wives will get a kick out of this title. There is even a "party
game" aspect to it. The premise behind Fast Food Panic is simple,
create the perfect meal for your restaurant goers as you cut, dice,
cook and pay homage to the Iron Chef's in your own peculiar way.

patience and in its essence, Fast Food Panic is a mixture of
mini-games that actually work ok. It's just the repetitive nature of
the mini-games that may get under the collar of some gamers.
control system of the game works well on the Nintendo Wii as you use
both the wiimote and nunchucks to make food. Weather you're
preparing hamburgers or steaks, the idea of the game is not to burn
any foods as your restaurant gets more and more hectic.
your main goal is to progress, create more elaborate meals and get
more customers, there is even a free-mode in the game that allows
you to beat your high scores. But wait, the star of the game is
multiplayer which allows up to 4 players and 2 in cooperative play
that does make this a fun party game... just have a few beers and
you'll see what I mean.
Graphically, the title
is a little lackluster but the cartoon inspired
graphics actually suits the game well. Although it
appears rather "low res", the characters have this
anime inspired look to them and would not look out
of place from a Japanese cartoon.
There are some special
effects thrown into the game here and there that
every now and then, you'll look up as it brings a
smile to your face. The musical score and sound
effects are ok and I must admit it would be
difficult to create a stellar spectacular score in
At the end of the day,
Fast Food Panic is definitely a game for casual
gamers or for the younger game where the parents
wish to watch what they play. It's fun, however at
the end of the day, it's a little unfulfilling as
the main gameplay becomes a tad repetitive. It's
difficult to make a game like this and keep it
interesting from start to finish but just remember
this is not for the mainstream gamer who plays Call
of Duty of World of Warcraft.
