I'm not American so I have no idea who any of the characters are in this game. I am used to the original British series so at first it took me a while to pick up on the game play and accents as being from the actual TV show in America.
My problem with this game isn't that it is slow or boring, but it is the fact that even though I successfully completed it, I still couldn't explain to anyone how to actually play it. I just clicked things randomly and tried to do it on time. I have no idea how I actually won each level though and the combinations of food and spices still baffle me.

One of My Favorite Cooking Games
In the Top Chef game you are the challenger on a TV cooking challenge just like in the real life TV show. There are several cooking challenges and then you are judged after your dishes based on a 5 star rating scale. You can either make it to the next round or will be told to "pack up your knives" which you get sent home but you can still retry the challenge without losing your progress. I like that in these cooking challenges you have ingredient options to choose from so each dish is your on creation. The only thing I didn't like about this game is no matter how well or badly you do..the storyline doesn't change. So if you got Top Chef one round it won't reflect in the words between characters. Overall this is a great game and one of played more than once. I would like to see another one come out.

Fun reality show time management cooking game!
This is a fun game. It's based on the reality series Top Chef, and features Tom and Padma. The challenges follow the show challenges, and there's personality situations with the other chefs. Parts of the graphics are very simplistic, however, the challenges, and learning about the many different categories various ingredients can be in, make it interesting and fresh. The time management aspects do make it quite challenging. If you like cooking games or are a Top Chef fan, you'll enjoy this game; try it!

One of the best Time Management games ever
I am a huge fan of time management games, and this one tops them all. I usually get bored quickly with a game once I have 'finished' it, but I still play this game even after completing all the levels...it's different every single time that you play. Fun to learn and try combinations of ingredients and challenging to try to put that to the test. Great game...you'll be hooked!!

Fun For A While. Trial Did Me
It was just like being on masterchef with all the judging and pressure!
Great level of challenge, you are trying to beat the time limit yet you still have so much fun!
Great graphics, especially with the dish presentation!
You had to use a particular theme for each dish, and there was something called a "classic combo" which got you extra points.
Only voice-over is saying "_______ left." Should have been a few more.
A little more variety of the dishes would have been great.
A little bit of a storyline would've been great.
Game is very repetitive with absolutely no variation. WILL get boring after a while.
Cutscenes in between episodes are just boring. I wish they had've been a little better.
I'm pretty sure the trial did me. You should download the free trial and see if you like it.
