For the most part, Order Up!! is a good game for those who like time-management games. While the game isn't exactly fresh -- Order Up!! first debuted on the Nintendo Wii back in 2008, followed by an Apple iOS version a few months ago -- it's a fun, humorous, and family-friendly game. Along with support for the PlayStation Move controller, this PS3 version of the game adds optional 3D graphics (on compatible televisions) and split-screen multiplayer modes (play with someone beside you, cooperatively or competitively), as well as mini-games and trophies. But keep in mind, the game can get a bit tedious and repetitive after a while. While you're preparing new dishes all the time, most of the core cooking tasks remain the same. You might have your fill after an hour or two, but the "dangling carrot" that draws you back is to ability to expand your restaurant empire, unlock new recipes, and meet funny characters you must cater to. If you're not sure if this game is for you -- and you own an iPhone, iPod touch or iPad -- download the free Order Up!! To Go at the App Store for a taste of what to expect in the full-featured PS3 version.

Did we miss something on diversity?

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
