Beautiful but slow
I loved the graphics and the story line. On my computer it loaded so slowly that I spent most of the time waiting. The print was also hard to read. I liked the download but I won't spend the money on it. I hope the artist will do more games.

condiments, fillings, and all sorts of baked goods - finally a different baking game
I loved how every stage pretty much there was a new item added to your baking.
story was nice.
graphics of the bakery itself were realistic but then everything else like the map and the customers was cartoonish so that didn't make sense
the last 8-10 stages the game ran out of adding new stuff so it got repetitive there.
not many in game achievements unless you play the other modes
i liked how you didn't have to pay for the upgrades for once

Good game but not very challenging
When I bought Baking Success it's a lot fun. You not only bake for customer but there's 2 minigames to play to help you're store. i totally recommend this game, I finished in 2 days bc it is addicting

Mediocre at best as TM
Cute enough for a 12 year old but definitely not for a die-hard TM player. It is SLOW to control, and placement of each item isn't all that good. If you are expecting something FAST and light weight like good ole' Cake Mania, Cake Shop, Burger Shop, Burger Bustle, etc., you'd be disappointed. If you go back to Burger Island now, you get the same "slow to control" frustration as Baking Success. Cute and pretty to look at, but colors also could have used more thoughts.
Since new TM games stopped coming very quickly, I played it anyway. Not very challenging. Mini games in between (Pipes and HOG) are okay and short enough, but not for TM fans. I skipped all of them for the Expert mode. If you are into "click the mouse as fast as you can until it starts smoking", this game is NOT it. If you're desperate for a good "build food to order" game as I am, this can be an okay game.

I was expecting more
From the other reviews I was expecting really great. Sorry, This game sits well below any of the manias or dashes........It wasn't horrible. But I didn't even finish the free demo.

I like the throwback to the past but I wont be baking pastries....Like many said it ifeels and looks like games that were fun some time ago and for about 30 minutes I enjoyed it. After that it just got boring. I played the mini games maybe twice after that I skipped them because of the graphics.It starts of easy enough and gets challenging pretty quickly. The power ups are timely but I miss more decorating choices. All in all not bad but not interesting enough for me, maybe I played too many and better ones...

Disappointing TM Game
I was so excited to see a TM game. I've missed them. However I found this one a little boring and slow. I totally skipped the minigames because they just weren't fun. Maybe it gets better the more you play it but I found the whole experience dull. I would recommend playing the demo at least, it is a nice change from the HOG games and the build it TM games out there.

Fun TM Game
*Fun gaming for 50 levels on story mode (time flies)
*Cute graphs but baking equipment and characters seem rather mismatched
*Two interesting mini games, which if you skip though you cannot play them again later
*Overall good value for money

This could have been a winner
Finally, a new TM game! It looked great and it was, until the frustration factor set in. For a game that's all mouse, the precision isn't there. Items you thought you clicked, didn't register. You go to pick up one item and you have another. You go to put it down and you can't because it sticks. It just doesn't have crisp control (like Burger Shop 2 for example). Another annoying factor is the bonus rounds. You find items in a pantry and if you find them all, you get 3 cookies to calm angry customers down with. Only problem is, if you use them all and don't make gold and replay, the cookies don't come back. They're gone. Now it's even harder to make the gold. I know it's not my mouse or computer, because I'm constantly playing frantic click games without any problems. This one just give me a whopping headache. Otherwise, it would have been excellent.

I like many others have been waiting a VERYYYY long time for a good TM game but this just wasn't it. When I first saw the reviws I was super excited and couldn't wait to play. The story line is average, graphics are okay but the actual game play of this game is very slow. You will have no more then 3 customers at a time and you need an actual mouse not mouse pad on your labtop to play the game efficently. I am glad I tried this demo before I wasted yet another game credit on a game that is simple not worth the time or money...However, try it for yourself and see what you think!
