STAFF REVIEW of Cook, Serve, Delicious! 3?! (Xbox One)

Cook, Serve, Delicious! 3?! Box art Hold on to your wooden spoons folks! Cook, Serve, Delicious 3?! has made its entrance into the kitchen and I'm ecstatic and thrilled to be the one to review it. Vertigo Gaming sure outdid themselves. With the wide variety of recipes to the intense cooking and serving gameplay, Cook, Serve, Delicious 3?! serves up on hell of a cooking simulator that you can't miss out on. I promise you, you won't want to skip this order I'm about to cook you. If you want a chaotic, intense, fun and action packed game to keep you on the edge of your seat... look no further than Cook, Serve, Delicious! 3?! I am a big fan of cooking in my real life, and when I can virtually cook in my games, it makes me just as happy.

Speaking about cooking dishes up for you, Cook, Serve, Delicious 3?! excels at the 'cooking' aspect. Depending on the recipe, you could be deep frying, baking, pan frying or putting together sushi. Every recipe in Cook Serve Delicious 3?! has its own level, cook time and way to make it just right. Personally, I preferred the recipes that had only a few steps in the process and was simple to make. I tend to get a little overwhelmed when I have to do multiple steps in the recipe. A few of my favourite recipes were Churros, Kimchi, Baklava, Japchae (I'm assuming some kind of chow mein) and really, anything fried. Everything is relatively easy, as its usually one to two steps, if not three, and then it automatically serves.

There are some recipes that require you to first cook it, then revisit it and complete the order. For example, ribs need to be cooked, sauced and seasoned. Then, after the ribs cook, you need to sauce and season them again. Another good example is Country Fried Meats. That requires you to cook the meat and then add the country gravy. I found the recipes not too difficult even those with four star levels. It just takes a medium level of concentration depending on your attention span and multitasking abilities.

The 'Serve' portion of Cook, Serve, Delicious 3?! is rather simple. When your item is 100% complete, it pops up on the left side, you scroll over with the joystick and then you have two options; You can manually select each item or you can use your staff member to auto serve. The auto serve is extremely helpful when you need to move fast and get the orders out quickly. Although, auto serve will only serve the item if it's 100%. Items that still need to have final touches will not be completed and auto served though. That's really the only true downside, as if you have a ton of dishes such as the ribs on queue, you must complete each item one by one. This makes things difficult when you have a lineup of 30 or more people waiting for their grub. At the end of each shift, you'll get pointed based on how well you did. This doesn't really impact your score all too much, but it will impact your coins.

Coins are mostly used for upgrades and decorating the exterior of your food truck. Decorating the exterior of your truck is purely aesthetic and does not have an affect on your ability to cook. However, upgrading your cooking stations and prep stations is needed and it's a beautiful thing. It means you can make more recipes and make more people happy with more decadent choices to eat. It's perfect!

I thoroughly enjoyed Cook, Serve, Delicious! 3?! for its content, gameplay, culinary dishes and delicious looking food that I'd love to actually eat. I really enjoyed the chaos and atmosphere that a chef on a food truck must deal with every day, going from stop to stop to serve hungry customers. I'll be serving for a long time past this review, so grab a frying pan and give Cook, Serve, Delicious! 3?! a try, you won't regret it. I've got to go, my ribs need to be sauced again!
