Review – BurgerTime: World Tour

Review BurgerTime World Tour
BurgerTime: World Tour is a re-imagining of the arcade classic BurgerTime. Both games feature a chef named Peter Pepper, who must climb a series of Donkey Kong-style girders in order to assemble giant hamburgers – by walking on their vertically aligned ingredients in order to push them downward, all while avoiding an army of living man-sized food.

In almost every other regard, however, these are two radically different games.

BurgerTime is a lot like Resident Evil, in that both are games of survival and conservation of ammo in the face of hordes of the reanimated dead, the difference being that the deceased in BurgerTime were first pickled, or ground into sausages.

Hold on, I’m going somewhere with this…

With that comparison in mind, BurgerTime: World Tour is the Resident Evil 4 of the series, in which the protagonist is instead constantly armed to the teeth and stumbling upon more firepower than he can use. Once again, it is a controversial move, but for BurgerTime, the change isn’t as successful.

Your Recommended Dose of Import Nostalgia

PSN Imports
MonkeyPaw Games grants two flashback import wishes on PlayStation Network this week, with Money Idol Exchanger and Sonic Wings Special, both of which release tomorrow for $5.99 a piece – under the Import tab in the PSone Classic section.

This seemed significant for two reasons –

1 – Money Idol Exchanger’s economic puzzle challenge stands out in my mind most because someone gave me hell for not mentioning it when reviewing Critter Crunch last year.
2 – Sonic Wings deserves a mention entirely because one can never have too many military based 2D shooters – it’s a fact.

Catch some hurriedly grabbed YouTube footage after the break.
