Claire’s Cruisin’ Cafe: High Seas Cuisine Review

  • by
Claire's Cruisin' Cafe: High Seas Cuisine

I only recommend “Claire’s Cruisin’ Cafe: High Seas Cuisine” if you really like this type of game, as the gameplay can be frustrating and has one achievement that is a bit bugged. No missable achievements and can be played on easy. ~9h till completion.


Approximate amount of time to 100%: 9h
Estimated achievement difficulty: 4/10
Minimum number of playthroughs needed: 1
Is there a good guide available: You don’t need a guide
Multiplayer achievements: No
Missable achievements: No
Grinding Achievements: No
DLC-Only achievements: No
Speedrun achievements: No
Time-gated achievements: No
RNG-achievements: No
Does difficulty affect achievements: No, you can play on easy and still get all the achievements
Unobtainable/glitched achievements: Yes, not totally broken but the achievement “For 20 Blog posts” only counts the 3 you can do on level 5. So you have to grind level 5 seven times in order to get this achievement. You don’t have to help customers, just click on the laptop every time you get the chance. Restarting the level doesn’t count toward the achievements, so just wait for it to end and then restart again through the level end menu.

This edition in the series is a hard one to review… I wish steam offered a neutral review option. The first one in this series was a lot of fun but had a few frustrating things with dishes just looking a lot like each other.. this game does that way way worse. There are so many items that look so much alike with just a few pixels differences, which is hard to see when you are on a time limit to get enough starts and/or do the challenge of that level. can only amazing this even being worse when you’re color blind, as sometimes the difference is between a white/yellow and a white/lightbrown kinda color (in the last 10 levels the noodles for example).

Here a picture to show what I mean:

This + one achievement doesn’t work correctly make this title frustrating and annoying while it doesn’t have to be that way. I hope that the different dishes in the next titles will look more different, that way it is doable for everybody without being frustrating.

None of the achievements are missable and you can play on easy while unlocking them all. I would suggest trying to go for the challenge and the 3 stars on each level in one go, but know that if you managed to fail on one of those 2 you can replay the level and only have to focus on the thing you missed.

I normally love this type of time management games in which you complete orders and have other challenges, and recommend those to others who want and easy completion, but this one I only recommend when you really enjoy this type of game.
