Cooking food can be a relaxing or therapeutic activity. But no Cook, Serve, Taste! 3?! That's because you're cooking behind a picky food truck driven by two cyborgs for a dystopian future. If so, things get worse … the chaos.
CSD3 Third entry in Cook, Serve, Taste The series also released earlier this week on Steam Early Access. These games are about cooking lots of quality food, quickly and accurately. I played a lot of first game and some of the second game. This new, third installment is the largest and most exciting yet. And perhaps the most depressing?
The chef who played as in the original games is back, but sadly his fantastic restaurant you built CSD2 it is destroyed. Two cyborgs, Whisk and Cleaver, find you buried in the river of your old restaurant and decide to help you get it all started. Now, in this case, you will work and cook from the back of a food truck.
There are so many great stories in between CSD3 that past games, which is great! The story never gets in the way or takes too much time, but it does help build the world and make it believable. CSD3 is set in 2043 and the world is facing global warming, wars, and other evils. Therefore, people, more than ever, need good food.
Day in and day out CSD3 it starts with compiling a menu of different snacks you can work on and then going to three stations, where hungry people are hungry. In each stop, you can prepare meals to help make your life easier. You will want to do this. Cooking inside CSD3 it works just like it did in the last two games. He uses various keyboard keys to beat the food together. For example, snacks like chicken nuggets have you ever hit the “N” key a few times to place red chicken nuggets in your boiling baskets. Then you hit the “D” key to put the food in the burner and finally, you hit the door to close that window and make the cooks cook. Later the food becomes more complicated, asking you to hit many more buttons quickly to make a delicious meal.
At first, this will feel overwhelming and frustrating. Even after playing the first two games, he returns to it CSD3 he was cheating. But soon you will memorize some items and buttons. Or you really need to be good at using the keyboard. If you have to look down while typing, the game will take you through the chef's coat and throw you behind the food truck in minutes.
Fortunately, you can turn on the cold mode that lowers how much rewards you get on the trip, but also makes things slow and turn CSD3 in a very busy cooking game.
A nice nice addition inside CSD3 that you can hit the control button on your keyboard whenever you have many things ready to be moved. Doing this will allow your robot friend to give you all the possible food in one go. Putting a button where you have everything set up is amazing and feels great. Viewing 10 orders of churros and 6 orders of fried fish leaves everything at a time when we can never get old.
You can do this while making other orders. It helps to make the gameplay of cooking feel like you have a food truck stuffed, pointing the person behind you to grab that basket of fries they gave to the customer, all the while not looking from the burger you make.
It looks like your food truck may be under attack while it's playing, but I'm about to spend three hours on this game and that's still going to happen. So maybe I'm lucky or maybe I haven't reached that point.
A few hours in CSD3 and I'm digging it. Things can get a little frustrating and I'm always happy when I finish my third stop and be able to take a deep breath and relax, but I'm ready to jump right in there. Cook, Serve, Taste! 3?! it doesn't totally detract from the formula of the last two games, and that's okay. Those two games were great. But it combines things in smart and endearing ways.
Now, I've got to go. I have 70 chicken strips for cooking and a bunch of hungry people.
