Cute Game, especially for kids
This is like a child's version of Diner Dash. Much of the same elements...matching chairs, taking orders, bringing food, taking money and cleaning up tables. It even has a coffee machine for restoring patience and a telephone for taking reservations.
Colorful scene with cute dogs.
I wasn't fond of the music for this game. It sounded like Yoshi Cookie music (which I like), but I didn't enjoy it for this game. And the entertaining music was irritating, in my opinion.
All in in all it was a cute game without a hard push for difficulty. I recommend you try before buying.

Better, But Still Not A Winner
Yet another Spin-off of Diner Dash, Lunch Rush HD follows the same rules, same gameplay and same basic concept of Dash but is slightly better.
The thing that this game has that Dash did not is cuteness. The storyline centers on a bear named Snowy who opens a restaurant to win a competition. This will easily appeal to young children, and is a great addition to the game collection for those who have children in the family. (I am not one)
The gameplay follows the same concept as Diner Dash, and this is the main issue I had with the game.
Firstly, there are a lack of tables, which really begins to prove problematic when you progress further in to the game because you cannot fill in the spaces left on the tables with other waiting customers. Customers can come in groups of 1-4, and this is also problematic, because you cannot pair up two groups of 1 to fit on a 2 person table, or a group of 3 and a group of 1 to fit a four person table, etc. This is what ultimately caused me to shut down the game after 25 minutes of the demo, and further proceeded to remind me how much I disliked Diner Dash.
In the game, there are two modes of play: Story and Nonstop, both of which are pretty self-explanatory. Story Mode has 2 goals for each level; Regular and Expert, with Expert giving you an extra 1000 points at the end of each level
While both are very similar, I did find a number of differences between Diner Dash and Lunch Rush HD
- Lunch Rush HD features the group colour grey which earns you no colour bonus.
- In Lunch Rush HD, unlike Diner Dash, you cannot choose your repairs, they are given to you automatically.
- Lunch Rush HD does not have the ?disasters? that Diner Dash does. The closest you get is a cat that sits around and meows when you click on it.
When compared to Diner Dash, I would say this game is slightly better because I found it easier, however, this is still a no go for me. Taking no credit away from this game, because it is actually better, the frustration that this game brings is not really my cup of tea, and I will be going to check out other Time Management Games.

This is the same as Snowy Lunch Rush, right down to the decorations, food and everything. It's fun to play because I bought Snowy Lunch Rush and play it from time to time.

Better TMs Out There
Diner Dash series does have a lot more to offer. This is a typical restaurant TM game. Run around serving customers, matching colors, chaining actions to get more money. But for what?! There are no upgrades to buy! Occasionally an improvement is given automatically, but I really prefer the challenge of which ones to choose when.
Then again, there is little challenge to this game. I was able to get gold on every level without much work, just chain and color match.
Graphics were ok, not the best I've seen, especially for "HD"
Music was redundant and annoying, as were the sound effects, but easier to play with them on to hear the drive-up window.
This may be a good game for a beginner or child, but just plain boring for most of us.

Nice graphics and another great concept for time management style gaming. Game could use more upgrade options in between levels and becomes somewhat humdrum after just an hour of play.

huge disappointment bigfish. i have had this game for years. only thing new is the title, formally known as snowy's lunch rush. the game itself gets boring and repetitive. nothing new here. gets difficult later levels if boredom lets you get that far. graphics are standard music drives you crazy after first couple of levels. nowhere near as good as the diner dash games

COULD have been a cute game
But I couldn't get past the wailing/screaming customers (apparently a gesture of joy when you seat them/take their order/bring them food) to make me want to buy this.
I love Dash type games, I have every Flo game ever created. With this one I was kind of put off by the server and the cook being animals (assuming the game was made just for kids) but I went ahead and played it anyway. Got used to the animal 'owners' and decided to try and enjoy the game. Which, really, it *is* a cute game. If you're 12 years old.
But the "hee hee hee!" shrieks every time you seat someone, etc, got on my nerves so badly that I had to turn it off.
Yes, I know, you can mute the sound to avoid hearing that. But I don't want to have to mute everything just to get rid of the shrieking.

And Your Point Is??
Gave this overall two simply because it seems to me a lame sales tactic to resell the same game. Original game was great but I see no significant differences here. Would be different if they had added at least a FEW extras to the game but that's not the case. SHAME ON YOU developers and Shockwave!

If you're over 10 years old, skip this.
I kept waiting for this game to get more challenging, but it was apparently geared for kids. I finished the game with the "expert" rating in about two hours. Waste of money.
