I play video games and review them.

Delicious: Emily’s Holiday Season (Gamehouse.com)

It’s the holidays and Emily just got a new job working at a hotel.  She’s managed to catch the eye of her manager and a co-worker.  Not only that, but she’s also preparing for a visit from her eccentric family.

Okay, the romantic choices are both extreme.  Richard is so worried about his own issues that he makes little to no time for Emily.  Paul is so clingy and dependent that he falls in love in a day and proposes excessively soon.  It doesn’t occur to either one that there might be a middle ground.  However, I have to say that I did like the introduction to Emily’s family.

I especially loved her free-spirited sister Angela.  They’re both so different and yet you can tell that they love each other.

The game play is the same as the last one.  In each level, you serve customers who either sit at the table or order takeout.

You also have an in-game event that you can complete for extra points.

You can get the target score and have one hundred dollars for spending on decorations or get the expert score and have two hundred.

One thing that separates this game from the last one is that you answer questions based on your opinion.  When you get to the credits, you see how popular your views are.  You are also the one who gets to choose who Emily ends up with.

It’s fun and a great introduction to Emily’s family.  I give it 8 out of 10, an experiment on adding romance to the games.
