I love this game, however, sometimes I used to like to play a straight HOG; not the interaction type. Could anyone recommend a good plain old HOG? I haven't seen one in quite a long time.

Thanks,

Not enough commands?

That is because, compared to the DINNER Dash series, these Cooking Dash games are rubbish.

This is the non-collector's edition. The graphics are well done. The gameplay is challenging and fun. The storyline is original and yet typically Flo. Her genius for saving restuarants is second only to the fun playing her games. There are upgrades for purchase and they come in two types, decor and more efficent service. The upgrades are unquie for each resturant and decor had two selections. This is a wonderful addition to the series.

This game is an A+.

I am a big fan of time management games, but like the other dash games you get to a level and it seems impossible to go any further. Any hints on getting throught level 20?

I played the demo and so far I am blown away. Awesome graphics, nice big screen (I almost never play fullscreen) fun themes (FRIED FISH!). The Dash series has the time management game down. I may buy it or wait for the normal edition.

This is my first post in the Forum. I like both HOG and TM, but this game is way too hard. I am only on level 8 and I can not get past it. You should be able to set your difficulty or at least be able to get past the first restaurant before it gets so hard! I really want to buy it, but not if I can't play past level 8!!

For those who DO like time management games, and particularly the cooking dash series, CD3 is a nice improvement from the previous in the series.

Spoilers below?

I appreciated that the number of people in each party group is lower and you can sit two "groups" at one table if you want to. Also, there is an extra step when cooking up an item to fry or grill, which makes it a bit more interesting and also additional challenge. The "drive thru" element is funny to me, but it's nice that they don't order huge meals, usually quick ones.

Diner Dash 1 had me at hello! But now, I prefer the "cooking" of the food as opposed to bringing the dish out to customers because it's less repetitive/predictable. The more items on the To Do List in a TM game, the better.

 

This game is awful

I hate Cooking Dash 3, and I won't recommend it to friends or family who play the other two. I've already warned them away from it, actually. I'm a person who can see the good in a lot of crap, but this is just all crap with nothing positive that I like outside of graphics and the throw-dishes power up.

If I could warn anyone, I'd say don't waste your money on this one.

- I don't like the mini games. I'd prefer to have time to do prep in-game.

- I hate the seating arrangement. The greatest part about Cooking Dash was the counter seating.

- The arrangement of drinks and foods, and the floor space, is horrendously spaced out and clumsy.

- I hate the Dash Thru. I hate it hate it hate it. The game is hectic enough without that crap. I hope this is something they leave behind in future CD games.

There's nothing wrong with change, but this game doesn't feel like a Cooking Dash game to me as the first two did. I really hope that if they do a Cooking Dash 4, they'll go back the seating arrangement of the first two games, that's my primary wish. Get rid of sitting the customers face to face, and go back to having them at the counter in a single row. PLEASE do that. Get rid of the Dash Thru, and put the drinks and things up front again.

I also miss serving ice cream and smoothies.

I played my hour trial and it was challenging enough. Decided to buy it with the sale and, uh, it's impossible. I'm mumbling under my breath and yelling at Flo, it's not really fun when the customers get mad so quickly and the food takes too dang long to prepare. Soup? really? I think it is a frustrating game and regret purchasing it.

You need to cook it first.

I normally love the BF cooking dash series, and I did this one as well until Level 20. I've tried everything and been on the level for weeks without ability to reach the goal and move on. I think games should be difficult but 'do-able' within a reasonable amount of effort. I've checked the forum and there are no tips on getting through level 20. I don't like games that are this difficult to get through.

I love this game! It's a major challenge to get through the levels, so there's no boredom. Grabbing items to get extra soups, etc, is childish, but, then it's childish to play these games anyway, so what can I say. I'm a big kid. Anyway, I'm addicted to all the dash games. Have fun!

This is a fun but challenging game! Still working my way through the first restaurant and so far getting by with flying colors! Love the fun mini games! I adored Cooking Dash 1...

I hate those mini-games with a PASSION!!!!!!
Ruins the game!!! I bought a time management... Okay if you want to play that type of game, but you HAVE to play them to get the extra food...

Have recently bought this game and am enjoying it. Like the graphics, the new restaurants to try out and cooking the various dishes. Some levels are taking a lot of re-tries to pass but guess I will figure it out eventually. Like a challenge.

I'm finding this game stressful and difficult to play. It's not as much fun as the others and I'm regretting purchasing it. :-(
