Critic Reviews for Recipe For Disaster

Whether you’re playing the goal-based scenarios or the open-ended sandbox mode, I still can’t stop thinking of ways to design a perfect dining hall. Though the frustration of failure sometimes got the better of me, I often couldn’t wait to get back in front of Recipe for Disaster to play through several more days of this enthralling restaurant simulation.

An Exercise in apathy, neither solid nor liquid. Not exactly bad, but not very good either. Just a bit 'meh,' really.

Recipe for Disaster, thankfully, was anything but. Yes, it was in-depth to the point of seeming complicated for me; but it’s hard to judge if that’s because the tutorials don’t explain things well enough or if it’s just my brain not linking the obvious together. Like I said, I need things shoved down my throat and even then I might not remember what to do. It also lacks a bit of charm, especially compared to games like Cat Café Manager. Regardless, all in all, it’s a solid game and I’d expect fans of management sims to gobble it up (see what I did there?)… but I’m left wondering if it might not be a hair too complex to really be enjoyed.

Of all the cooking based simulators out there, Recipe for Disaster is quite high on my list. It is both challenging and enjoyable to play. The UI is well laid out, the game has a great aesthetic, and it is quite entertaining. It is complex enough to keep players invested in their restaurants, and yet the game is rather relaxing to play. It is my opinion that despite the fact that Recipe for Disaster is in the Early Access stage, the game is spectacular. Management sim fans do yourself a favor and grab this game. You will love it!
