If you ever wanted to manage your own restaurant, the Fast Food Nation game gives you that opportunity in a fun and exciting way. But it’s not strictly fun and games. If you make a mistake while preparing an order, it will cost you.

The goal of the game is straightforward: Get as many orders correct in the fastest time possible to receive tips and bonuses. If a customer is not satisfied, he can leave without paying. That’s a blow to daily sales, and you may fail to meet the daily sales goal.

Fast Food Nation tests speed, accuracy and patience. The timed aspect of the game creates urgency, but if you want to get the orders right, you need patience.

If nothing else, Fast Food Nation provides a new perspective on restaurant kitchens by placing you in the cook’s shoes.

Each time I played, I failed to make any money. However, with each correct order, you have the opportunity to unlock bonuses and different features (i.e. trophies, special condiments, new food offerings and renovations).

One thing is for sure, after playing this food game, you will have a new-found respect for the people who serve you.
