Review: Sushi Go Round

Sushi Go-Round
for Wii 
by South Peak Games

Video games have been a big part of pop culture for the better part of twenty-plus years. I’ve loved playing them ever since I was able to load a cartridge into my dad’s old Nintendo. Needless to say, I’ve played just about every console since that fated day I discovered Mario.

Lately, we’ve seen a spike in casual online gaming. Games like Farmville, Pet Society, Mafia Wars, and a countless slew of others are the hottest thing right now. Naturally, it makes sense that a company would decide to go to the console to attract a broader audience. That’s exactly why I believe Miniclip decided to bring Sushi Go Round to the Nintendo Wii. Sushi Go Round was developed by South Peak Games and was released on March 30th, 2010.

At first, I have to say that I was skeptical. I’ve never had much passion for the online variety of games and didn’t know how to feel about this one. The story introduction was ridiculous, and I didn’t think much of it. You play a boy that opens a sushi restaurant because the girl he likes loves sushi. Silly stuff!

I was wrong, though!

The game is incredibly fast-paced. I ended up surrendering the Wii-mote to my girlfriend and watching her work her magic. It is a multi-taskers dream! You have to serve all of your customers and keep their mood up while keeping an inventory of all your ingredients well stocked.

It sounds fairly easy but it gets very challenging. You have to learn how to make each of the different types of rolls by using different varieties and amounts of the different ingredients.

We had a lot of fun taking turns seeing you could make more profit (she always won). You have to keep the cost of the ingredients and the amount of money you’re making under consideration.

Sushi Go-Round in story mode will give you the total amount of money you need to make per level and also how much profit you should make. Sometimes these goals can be difficult to attain, and it makes it so much more rewarding when you finally get it done!

There are many options with Sushi Go Round, 40 levels, and five restaurants. There’s a race against the clock, or put your people skills to the test with the Endurance Mode. Its variety will keep you coming back.

I only have a couple of criticisms for the game, and the major one is the music. It seems appropriate for the game, but after fifteen to twenty minutes of it, you’ll be wishing you could turn it off. There is no way found to do so that I could find. Basically, you’d have to turn the volume of your television off to do away with it.

My other complaint is that it doesn’t really give you much in the way of instruction. It briefly shows you the different menus and kind of sends you to sink or swim.

Overall, I found Sushi-Go-Round very fun. It isn’t a game that I’d spend a lot of time playing by myself, but in a competitive social setting, it’s perfect! This game is perfect for a small party of three to four people. has Sushi Go Round listed at 29.99 currently, and at that price, it’s well worth the money! Give it a shot and stick with it for a bit. I’m certain that you’ll enjoy it!
