We're not sure why, but we love celebrity chef Gordon Ramsey. To feed our love of the yelly foreigner, Ubisoft is bringing a Hell's Kitchen videogame to the Wii, DS, Mac, and PC.
Ramsey is the king of television's hottest sub-genre of reality show, shows where a British person yells at Americans for sucking so hard (See Peter Perfect, Super Nanny, Celebrity Circus, So You Think You Can Dance, American Idol, The X Factor, Kitchen Nightmares, Etc.) so we're happy we'll get to be yelled at in our own home, or on the bus. Anyway, here's what the game features:
- Chef Ramsay watches players' every move and judges them as they progress by yelling at them, praising them or shutting down the kitchen if their skills don't meet his expectations.
- As players progress, they'll gain access to authentic Gordon Ramsay recipes, including many that are offered exclusively to game owners.
- In Career Mode, players can earn stars to build their way up from a Single-Star restaurant to a prestigious Five-Star establishment. As the player advances through the ranks, their star rating advances and the recipes become more varied and intricate.
- In Arcade Mode, the pressure builds as customers become increasingly demanding. Players will be challenged to keep up with the pressure before time is up, or Chef Ramsay loses patience and closes the kitchen.
This game will not be very good. But we'll play it anyway when it comes out this fall.
