Miniclip Sushi Go-Round Review & Giveaway CLOSED

CLOSED
Who out there likes sushi? I do!!! Unfortunately I can only eat veggie sushi now that I'm pregnant, but I still craaaaave the tuna yumminess. What's almost as good as eating sushi? Playing a game where you make sushi!!! :-) I was so fortunate to be given the opportunity to review the Miniclip Sushi Go-Round game for Wii (from SouthPeak games). According to the box, "Sushi Go Round is the fun and fast-paced game that puts you in charge of a busy sushi restaurant. Keep the customers happy and you'll become the most successful chef in town - but watch out for tough food critics and fussy diners."

My Take
Well, what can I say...I'm addicted. I actually have to remind myself that I have other duties besides playing this game...

The Plot
The plot is a bit cheesy. There's a boy that's infatuated with a pretty girl, and he finds out that she likes sushi, so he decides to open his own sushi restaurant to win her affections. Throughout the game, she stops by and he tries to impress her with his amazing sushi. (I haven't beat the game yet, but so far she's not really impressed...) It's kinda corny, but it gives you a reason to be making the sushi.

Game Play
It took me a while to get the hang of "rolling" the sushi. (You have to swing the Wii remote upwards, and it takes a little practice to perfect your "roll".) The "days" (rounds) are quick, so even if you don't have much time, you can still play through a "day" or two. The game starts out slow (meaning customers show up at a slower pace and they don't get dissatisfied as quickly). But as you've played through more "days", the customer pace picks up, they get dissatisfied VERY quickly, and you also need to remember more sushi combos. During all of this, you have to remember to keep your ingredients stocked, because when you buy something it takes time to arrive (and you don't want to keep the customers waiting). Luckily you have two pitchers of sake, but you only get two per "day", so use them as sparingly as possible. Most of the time I don't have time to remember to use the sake because I'm so busy making orders, giving out menus and ordering ingredients. It gets to be VERY fast-paced, but it's so much fun.

Overall
I'm really having a great time playing this game, and I can't wait to find out if he actually gets the girl in the end...although I don't know if I'm good enough to beat the game, but I'll surely try! The game is rated "E" for everyone, so kids young enough to control a Wii remote can play. I give Sushi Go-Round a 9/10, because my wrist gets really sore from playing several rounds in a row. Maybe there might be an easier way to "roll" the sushi without hurting my wrist? :-)

I follow GFC, and learned that by using the Nintendo DSi camera, players can take photographs of people, pets, objects anything they want then
turn them into quirky customers that appear in their sushi restaurant. Sounds like FUN!
