So, why'd I buy it? Because I'm a big fan of this BurgerTime iteration's gameplay, which I consider to be far, far, more enjoyable than what's present in the arcade original.
I'll chat about all of that further in this game's upcoming "Great Gaymathon" review (because you know I'm going to publish one--and soon). For the time being, let's focus on this version's packaging.
Speaking of which, I have to say that I much prefer the cover art that was created for the North American release of BurgerTime Deluxe, which can be seen here.
The Japanese copy seen above and below actually was cheaper than the complete-in-box copies of its North American counterpart I came across, though, so I went with the slightly less-desirable option.
Anyway, the game's cartridge and manual also sport the same cheesy image that appears on the box cover, which is kind of creepy when you see them all sitting next to each other like you do in the photo above.
Thankfully, that overly cheerful blond is nowhere to be found on the backside of the box. That said, I almost wish she were present, as it's kind of bland as is, don't you think?
Now, don't get too excited, as the illustrations I'm talking about aren't quite up to the standard of those included in, say, Painter Momopie's manual, but they're nice enough and they're certainly more interesting than a couple of green-and-white screenshots and a slew of text.
Do any of you have any experience with this game? If so, what do you think about it?
