    Magazine ad for Chef’s Luv Shack, by Acclaim for the PlayStation, Sega Dreamcast, Nintendo 64 and PC (DOS).


    South Park: Chef’s Luv Shack is South Park’s version of a party game. It consists of nearly two dozen mini-games interspersed with triva. Unfortunately, the game is exclusively multi-player and there is no AI to play against. Of course, these types of games are better vs. other people but it’s nice to have the option to play against the computer.

    One neat aspect is that many of the minigames are based on classic arcade games. For example, Asses in Space is based on Asteroids, Pizza Boy is based on Paperboy, etc.

    However, at the end of the day the game just wasn’t all that good. The mini-games quickly grow boring and while many may be based on classic arcade games, they aren’t nearly as good. To make matters worse, the trivia portion of the game is generally too easy and doesn’t play well making the mini-games the best part.
