Emily has finally married Patrick in Delicious – Emily’s Honeymoon Cruise and they have taken off on a cruise. The cruise ship is owned by Jimmy who is married to Emily’s sister. But as always, there’s a need for help on the ship in this time management game.
If you have ever played the Delicious series, you know exactly what you are getting into with this one. They did make some nice changes to it though, but it isn’t quite enough to take this game to four stars.
For once, Emily is not at the helm or in the kitchen. Instead, she and Patrick are told to relax. Instead, you have the major characters that you have run into before such as Patrick’s mom, Emily’s mom and dad, her sister and a few other characters that have popped into the series. Each level is a bit different on who you play. So, it is a nice change of pace to play these different people.
The game play is still basically the same as you serve the customers. In addition, you have to help Emily and Patrick relax enough to earn a gold heart. This is done by placing them in a spot and serving them as well. If you get the five hearts, you only have to serve them between two or three times. But you can do it as many times as you want until you get the gold heart. There is also the mouse to catch during each level. Some levels will also provide you the opportunity to snap photos for album.
The game also takes advantage of Facebook and online videos. After each level, you can share what you did. Although, clogging up your Facebook page with a game seems a bit over the top.
They did bump up the graphics just a bit and made the characters a bit larger. But the overall look is still exactly the same. There did seem to be some scale issues in some of the levels though.
Musically, the game has the same sound track that they need to retire. In the future, they should be adding voice overs and such to the commentary. The game is really past that point.
This series is a decent time management game with some nice changes. But they still could have bumped it up to a little. It isn’t the worst game in the series. However, it also isn’t the best.
