Restaurant Empire II (simplified Chinese: 奇迹餐厅2; traditional Chinese: 奇蹟餐廳2; pinyin: Qí Jì Cān Tīng 2) is the sequel to Restaurant Empire. It has new features such as new themes for American restaurants, over 700 pieces of new internal and external furniture and decorations, the addition of German cuisine and the city of Munich, and several others. The game has also been ported to Mac OS X by Virtual Programming, Ltd.

Player control[edit]

The player controls the kind of cuisine the restaurant serves (American, French, Italian, German). Along with Munich, other cities include Los Angeles, Paris, and Rome.

New features[edit]

As a new feature, the player can also own various kinds of restaurants, including a coffee shop and a dessert house. In the campaign mode, many new features have been added, such as organizing performance in your restaurant and changing the colors of the uniforms on your staff. Returning characters are Armand and Michel LeBoeuf, Delia Delecoeur, and Don Corleone. The campaign mode features a remade version of the campaign in the original Restaurant Empire. The game also focuses more on the managerial aspects of running a restaurant empire.

Graphics[edit]

Many of the graphics have been updated from the original game, with higher polygon counts, higher resolution textures, and some basic shaders, although some graphics have not been updated. Nearly all of the features from the original game are included in Restaurant Empire II, including the original food menu system, hiring and firing employees, and managing ingredients.

Critical reception[edit]

Reviews have been mixed, with praise for adding new content and keeping the game alive, but complaints about micromanagement and the recycled graphics.[1]

Metacritic rates it as "Mixed or average reviews."[2]
