Restaurant Empire 2 Launch Trailer
Build your own world-class establishment in Restaurant Empire 2!
The interface and gameplay is exactly the same, it should have been called: Restaurant Empire - Graphics update + extra features (for 19.99!)
Sadly beaulee hasn't look at the market in a long time, all the games are slowly loosing there edge, ever since causal gaming became the major money maker. Most RTS es all blend together, as well as MMOs, best you can expect now a days is new graphics, and combinations of already used features. For crying out loud the most creative game I've seen recently is the new Wolfenstien, which is just a graphic orgy, with a pinch of new toys to the series.
this is just a cheap rip off hotel empire 2..........you can have much more fun if you just buy that.
...and on that note, how much longer before they just create a game called Sim-Tycoon Empire, where you write the software yourself using this genre's tired over-used formula.
@blacknight101 I think the issue is that consumers will never pay more than 19.99 for an X_Tycoon game anymore. Even at that lower price, only a small portion of gamers will actually buy these games. For those reasons, the budget is so low and you'd be crazy to expect time and effort to be put into a game like this. If someone wanted to make a decent simulation game and expect real money for it, they'd definately have to name it without using any of these 3 words: "Empire", "Sim", or "Tycoon".
and after seeing that video... maybe its just me... but it seems to be basically the exact same game? (even the same graphics engine! and the first one is from what? 2001 ish?)
Because the genre is over-saturated with crap games like prison tycoon, or (good lord) Fairy godmother Tycoon. Half decent / good games like Roller Coaster Tycoon, Zoo Tycoon (and in my opinion, the original Restaurant Empire) were buried. It is sad to see one of my favorite genres die... hopefully this game can give it a good kickstart.
