Cooking Academy: Restaurant Royale
The real-time aspect is a real game killer. You can only really play the game in very short increments so there's no real playing involved.

What a Disappointment
I was so excited to see this game and thought FINALLY! A decent TM game. Alas, just another disappointment. Why couldn't they just release a regular version without all the overpriced junk to go with it ? Not for me...

Another con game
Game would be great if it was a normal game that you buy! But sadly, another one of these FREE but costs you money if you really want to play it.
Shame on you Big fish and fancy bragging it is exclusive!

What a dissapointment
I felt so happy to know this game was coming out only to find out it wasn't a game that could be purchased to play as you wish. I was very disappointed when I realized that it could only be played online and that you would have to purchase items to continue to play. This would've been such a good game to play if only I could own it. I love all of the other Cooking Academy games and I would rather play these over again than to waste my time with this new version, only because it isn't a game like all the other Cooking Academy series. So sad.

I was SO excited there was another addition to the cooking academy series. I downloaded and ....SLAP!! It is NOTHING like the FIRST 3. It is more like Bakery and Restaurant story. Just not as fun. The graphics are cute. I didn't really explore that much. Once you run out of bucks..all you are doing is clicking coins. The "cooking" is done in real time. Its HORRIBLE. Why stray away from the previous 5 star rated games that the first 3 were. PLEASE release another and go back to the original style. I enjoyed the story line AND the cooking of each recipe in the first 3. Please take us back to a better time. This one is HORRIBLE. Deleting it. I am SO disappointed :-(

this game is terrible
No instructions. You are left to try and figure out how the game works after very basic instructions and it is nearly impossible to earn the things you need to level up without spending REAL MONEY ON FAKE MONEY FOR THE GAME! If you don't buy the fake money you are left in a monotonous situation waiting for hours--REAL HOURS---for dishes to be prepared and herbs to grow. Honestly BIg Fish, games like this are a huge turn off and if I continue to see a trend toward this I think I'll just cancel my membership and go elsewhere.

It`s just awful. Main idea is ok, but you don`t get any further if you are not willing to pay!

I have played the previous Cooking Academy games and quite enjoyed them, so when I saw a new one I jumped on it. I didn't bother reading the reviews because, "Hey this Cooking Academy and I already know what this game is about". Boy was I wrong! This is a freeium game where you get the game for free but have to pay cash to get things to actually get through the game! I was shocked! If you don't buy the bucks you have to wait until everything cooks, which is long and boring!!! When I sit down at the PC I am sitting down to play a game at that moment, not to watch a cartoon pot boil for 10 minutes while I twiddle my thumbs! The game was boring, slow and was not enjoyable. I am disappointed that this is where the Cooking Academy franchise has went.

Not worth spending your money on.
The graphics are terrible, their is no challenge, you just spend your time waiting for the game. Do not install and do NOT spend your hard earned money on it.

Make it impossible to win the challenges
it tells you to cook 9000 pieces of something in 22 hours, but unless you are constantly at your computer every hour or every 3 hours, you will not make that challenge! I am uninstalling today!
