by Rainier on May 28, 2002 @ 3:06 p.m. PDT

From the creator of award-winning Capitalism series and Seven Kingdoms series, Trevor Chan, here comes a break through in business simulation genre. The game that takes the art of cooking and running a restaurant to new heights, Restaurant Tycoon is a gastronome's dreams come true. Starting with nothing except some cash, a passion for food and a great idea, you start by building a restaurant from the bottom up - hiring waiters, decorating, even cooking the meals. Buy, build, outsell and undermine your competition in the world's culinary capitals, all faithfully recreated in stunning 3D environments.

Game Features

  • Gorgeous 3D Graphic
    Restaurant Tycoon features a gorgeous 3D environment with all the detail players have come to expect from 2D isometric games, completely rendered in real-time.
  • Various Themes and Places to Build Your Restaurants
    Choose from three cuisines and eight theme restaurants to build on eight culinary capitals stretching from the Pacific to the Atlantic, each with its own set of requirements and gameplay strategies.
  • Countless Elements to Tweak.
    View your patrons' reactions to your restaurant – from happy diners jerks who are whining about the food and service.

  • Expertly manage your staff
    Hire, fire and train waiters, chefs, maitre d'hotels, even the dishwasher. Improve their skills and watch your restaurant ratings increase.
  • Control your restaurant's inventory.
    Make sure there's a constant supply of ingredients, that your food doesn't spoil, and that suppliers aren't short-changing you.
  • Many Side Activities to Enrich the Gameplay
    Control chefs and prepare meals for celebrities and political big-wigs, who will grant you favors (provided you can cook!). Choose from any of eight unique playable chefs – all with their own set of abilities, skills and techniques that can and will affect gameplay.
  • Participate in internationally acclaimed cooking contests.
    Demonstrate to the world your culinary prowess, but be careful: other chefs will stop at nothing to win these competitions, and this means a slew of dirty tricks are available for their own fiendish purposes. (Don't worry, though – you can also slip cockroaches into your competitor's food!)
  • Explore and exploit the restaurant universe
    Travel to faraway locations such as equatorial Africa and the Middle East searching for exotic ingredients, then use these ingredients to out-cook your competitors in real-world cities such as Paris and New York.
  • All the Fun, No Inconveniences
    Experience all the drama and excitement of running a restaurant without smelling of onions or staining your clothes!
