The popular Food Network show Iron Chef has been a cult hit in the United States for years, offering viewers entertaining cooking battles between some of the world's top chefs. So it's no surprise that the developers at Enlight have incorporated some aspects from that show into their restaurant management game, Restaurant Empire. But the game is much more than a cheap attempt to capitalize on the popularity of the show. The game's lead designer, Trevor Chan, is responsible for acclaimed strategy games like Capitalism II, and his expertise is apparent in Restaurant Empire, a game that, despite a slightly flawed interface and presentation, provides an enjoyable and deep strategy experience.
