Critic Reviews for Cuisineer

Cuisineer is a fun enough food themed video game, but it's a slow starter and has a few issues that hold it back from a Michelin star.

Ultimately, Cuisineer is a grindy game that will appeal to casual roguelike fans, weebs, or anyone looking for a grindy game to lose dozens of hours into. That same grind will likely alienate a handful of you, but if this kind of isometric combat is your thing then it’s worth pushing through.

Cuisineer is an excellent culinary adventure full of cute characters, tasty dishes, and challenging goals to strive towards as you become unstoppable both out in the world and in the kitchen.

Cuisineer provides a unique backdrop for a roguelite game, with hours of playtime required to help the family restaurant. While it can be a little tedious at times, the gameplay loop is mostly enjoyable, especially the restaurant elements. Despite its occasional shortcomings, Cuisineer is a promising indie title and one that is worth checking out.

Cuisineer is an overall fun experience with lots of cute aesthetics and enjoyable moments, but is held back by its grind-focused gameplay and lack of focus on specific questlines.

Cuisineer is an amazing game that you can really sink your teeth into and feel satisfied when playing, no matter how you play. This game was in the oven cooking for who knows how long and it came out spectacular. I didn’t allow any cat to try to take my tongue from letting people know to pick this up. This game gave me similar vibes to Moonlighter and Battle Chef Brigade and I love every minute of it. I’ve run out of cat puns, but I know this game has all nine lives left.

When I started playing Cuisineer for this review, it took a while for the game to grow on me. I was going to score it lower, but after spending more time with the game, I have revised my score. Looking after the restaurant is fantastic, addictive, and enjoyable. The fighting in the dungeons is frantic, but I like that I can choose when to go dungeon crawling.

Whether it’s embedding yourself in Paell or running dungeon after dungeon, you won’t want to put Cuisineer down.
