Miniclip Sushi Go Round for Nintendo Wii puts players in charge of their own Sushi restaurant. Customers must be given menus, have their food prepared, and plates cleaned up. For those of you who may have noticed Miniclip Sushi Go Round on the store shelves (and those who haven’t), here’s a detailed analysis.
The Back Story of Sushi Go Round
Miniclip Sushi Go Round is a not so classic story of boy meets girl. In order to impress the girl the main character (you) decides to open up a sushi restaurant. When she comes in to eat, she is unimpressed…So you decide to open a better, fancier sushi bar to win her over. In the end will the girl be won? Either way only one thing is guaranteed: you will be preparing a ton of sushi!
What’s New in Miniclip Sushi Go Round for Nintendo Wii?
Miniclip Sushi Go Round was originally an online web game by Miniclip that received more than 60 million plays (now that’s a lot of Sushi!). Like most web games, Miniclip Sushi Go Round is an entertaining distraction. Miniclip Sushi Go Round for Nintendo Wii builds upon everything that made the original Miniclip Sushi Go Round web game so great, and provides a better experience.
The original Miniclip Sushi Go Round had only one restaurant to serve the eight recipes from in six short levels. In South Peak’s new rendition of Miniclip Sushi Go Round, there are a total of 40 levels and ten recipe spread over the course of five restaurants. There are also several game modes to choose from, including a timed mode and “Forbidden Play” where players are shown a meal they must not prepare.
Easy Controls Make Miniclip Sushi Go Round Fun for Any Age
The controls in Miniclip Sushi Go Round for Nintendo Wii are incredibly simple. Point the Wii remote at the screen and click on the ingredients to add. When all of the ingredients have been added, shake the Wii remote to “roll” the sushi.
My family came over for Easter, including several young cousins, and they all enjoyed playing Miniclip Sushi Go Round.
Miniclip Sushi Go Round Best Played in Small Increments
Miniclip Sushi Go Round for Nintendo Wii is not a game that is meant to be played for hours nonstop. The lack of an engrossing storyline that many players have begun to expect from modern video games doesn’t detract from Miniclip Sushi Go Round; instead it helps to “serve up” some on great on the fly gaming.
Average game times of story driven games can easily last from half an hour to three or more hours of continuous playing. Miniclip Sushi Go Round on the other hand can have a complete game of Time Attack finished in as little as five minutes. This makes Miniclip Sushi Go Round the perfect game to play when you only have a few spare minutes to spare.
A perfect example illustrating this point is while I was waiting for my roommate to finish getting ready before we went out for the night. The few spare minutes on my hands were insufficient to play a meaningful session of Zelda, Super Mario Galaxy, Fallout 3, or Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2. I did, however, have just enough time to play a quick game of Sushi Go Round for Nintendo Wii before leaving the house.
Graphics and Sound
The Graphics in Nintendo Wii’s Miniclip Sushi Go Round are what one would expect from a web game ported onto a console. There are no stellar cutting edge visuals to be seen on Miniclip Sushi Go Round; however Miniclip Sushi Go Round for Nintendo Wii does feature improved graphics over the original web game. While players of the original web game will feel right at home, newcomers to the series will find the art cutesy.
The vast majority of time is spent preparing sushi and ordering supplies as the food in your restaurant disappears. In the story mode the first few levels are simple. After ten or so levels have been completed, the difficulty quickly ramps up like one would not believe, creating a challenge to even the most veteran of gamers.
All of the food that you prepare in Miniclip Sushi Go Round is placed on a conveyor belt that moves the dishes from left to right. If someone on the far right orders a dish and a new customer sits down to the left of them and orders the same one, they will steal the dish off of the conveyor belt before the first customer can get it. Unless you are quick to give the irritated customer some sake, they will storm out without paying.
Another challenging part of playing Miniclip Sushi Go Round for Nintendo Wii is remembering all of the different recipes. Although there are only ten different recipes to remember, I found myself looking up recipes in the convenient cook book next to the phone where additional supplies are ordered every few levels.
Playing Miniclip Sushi Go Round May Help Prepare Children For Work
A family member asked why I would want to play Miniclip Sushi Go Round for Nintendo Wii, and they told me that “it seemed like real work” rather than fun. They argued that someone could get a job working at a fast food restaurant preparing food and earn money. While this is certainly true, one cannot walk away from the kitchen of a fast food restaurant such as Burger King or McDonalds after five minutes without losing their job. Also a five year old can play Miniclip Sushi Go Round while there are child labor laws preventing them from making a burger at Wendy’s.
One could argue the case that Miniclip Sushi Go Round for Nintendo Wii helps prepare children to enter the work force in their early teens. Successful Miniclip Sushi Go Round players must learn how to multitask. Multitasking is an invaluable skill for everyone, and in Miniclip Sushi Go Round for Nintendo Wii multitasking is what allows players to excel. In that sense, Miniclip Sushi Go Round does indeed help children develop a valuable skill that will not only help prepare children for the workplace, but also to succeed in life.
