In The Ramen Sensei 2, you're in charge of a ramen restaurant with the goal of besting other restaurants in competitions. The game is mostly autonomous, which can be good and bad. After the tutorial sets up the staff, menu, furniture, and ramen, the game runs itself. It felt rewarding to wait and receive new ingredients or see customers level up. On the other hand, I felt little motivation to compete and complete the goal because of these rewards. It's a nice, if not lackluster, experience. 4/5.

Ramen Sensei 2 gives an extra layer of challenge (and fun) compared to the first one but in keeping up the Kairosoft habit of not exactly being intuitive for new players even with guides, it's easy to miss out on what you might need to do to beat some of the more challenging/mandatory for story progression mini games like Ramen Odyssey or the Ramen challenges. In being a little challenging to figure out, it does encourage a lot of fun replays and the microtransactions aren't necessary to win.

It's one of the full free games in Kairosoft and focused in managing a ramen food shop (chain!), unfortunately requiring internet connection unlike some games which can be fully offline. I haven't played many others but I can see the layers and tons of effort with this! It's really deep and manageable. The ONLY issue personally is the repetitive rivals, but even then (after some struggling), they can be dealt with passively.
