  • The Wii Remote is your ultimate cooking utensil, putting you in total control of the cooking action as you chop, grate, slice, stir, roll and much more!

  • Realistic graphics with real-time effects make you feel like you?re actually cooking. Adjust your timing and make decisions about your next course of action based on what you see on screen (i.e. if food is starting to look burned, quickly remove it from the burner, etc.).
  • Keep your kitchen fancy and fresh by earning items that bring your kitchen to life (i.e. seasonings, small utensils, etc.).
  • Earn bronze, silver, and gold medals from Mama based on the quality of your cooking.
  • Practice mode allows you to fine tune your cooking skills without being judged. Recipes progress from simple to complex, from small to large dishes, so do your best to meet Mama?s expectations as you unlock new dishes.

Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
Sizzling off the Nintendo DS burner, Mama is back for second helpings with Cooking Mama: Cook-Off for the Wii. What can easily be called an import-with-modification, this kitchen simulation emulates the DS version almost identically and although several key distinctions can be made between the two titles, it's a safe wager that if you enjoyed the portable Mama, you'll love her just the same when grounded to Nintendo's new console.

The premise of the game is ridiculously simple which no doubt enhances the title's adorable flair as well as minimizes its already insignificant learning curve. Mama (a ridiculously excitable Japanese woman) has once again decided to open her cheery country-style kitchen to gamers who, under her unblinking supervision, will cook, slice, and dice their way through fifty-five international entrees and desserts.

Each of the missions is further deconstructed into several objectives, all of which can be successfully completed through simple motion-driven minigames. Say, for instance, a gamer chooses to melt and mold chocolate truffles. After confirming his or her selection, a screen will appear detailing the numerous step-by-step activities one must perform in order to properly prepare the cocoa-crunchies. Once briefed, the first minigame will begin with a simple 3-2-1 on-screen countdown. An unwrapped chocolate bar appears on a digital cutting board and the gamer is instructed to flick the Wiimote up and down rapidly to "dice" the dessert. Once chopped, the chocolate must then be boiled, an activity which requires the gamer to monitor oven settings and be vigilant against charring the mixture. After each minigame, a results screen appears, chronicling one's numerous successes or failures.

2.0 out of 5 stars Not as good as it looks! June 22, 2007
A Kid's Review
Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
First of all, when I heard of this game, I thought it would be fun. And I was right. Partially. The thing i didn't like was the actual length of the game. Cooking the dishes was fun, however. We spent a lot of time playing it at home, and also with friends. It was more fun as a multiplayer game. My sister liked it a lot so she played it often. But after about a week, we BEAT THE GAME!!!! BELIEVE THAT! I was cautious from the start, so I rented it first. We beat the game before we returned it! My sister was pretty bummed out. I was also kind of upset at how they could make such a fun game so short. 55 recipes seems like a lot, but it isn't. Each recipes is about a couple of minutes. After an hour of plying, you probably have ended up with 25% complete. And the graphics are okay, same with sound. BUT, for some dumb reason they decided to make "mama" speak some made up language, a cross between English and Japenese. Japanenglish! Half the time you dont understand a word she says. Like when you mess up on something, she says something along the lines of "good, not mine". The other half when you can understand it, she ends up saying something very repetitive. The actual idea of a cooking game for Wii is excellent, but this just doesn't cut it.

Pros:
-Fun and addicting
-Nice graphics
-Nice sound
-Fun multiplayer

Cons:
-Mama is not understandable
-Incredibly short
-Repetitive

Overall, this is not a very good game. Way too short and repetitive. However, very good idea to rent. DO NOT make the mistake to buy it. It will be lying at the bottom of your video game drawer after a week of gameplay. [...]

Lets hope the can make a Cooking Mama 2 woth much longer gameplay and way more understandable language.

3.0 out of 5 stars Cute and addictive, but simple and oddly frustrating January 21, 2008
Fun: 3.0 out of 5 stars   
Ok... what is that woman SAYING?!?!?
As many have said, Mama is very difficult to understand. This doesn't seem critical for gameplay... just.... weird.
Somewhere in the gaming world of Tokyo is a highly-caffeinated Japanese woman who thinks she has performed an Italian accent.
Anyway.
Moving on.
The game itself is very simple. Childlike. Yet I keep playing it. Why? I would love to know.
Maybe because it is so mindless that I really don't give a [beep] if Mama likes my cooking or not. It is just kinda fun to peel virtual carrots and wonder what the hell that red stuff is they want me to add to scrambled eggs.
And I can tell kids will love it. I haven't shown it to my 10 year old yet (off visiting friends) -- but I just know she'll be thrilled.

As some have also said, some of the controls are frustrating.
Something like "stir" shouldn't be difficult... yet for some reason - no matter which way I move the remote, it never works the right way.
Ditto with some kind of timing thing where I am supposed to add ingredients, change stove heats, etc. They don't really tell you what you are supposed to do, and the controls don't seem to work the way you think they should. I even think it once said "use B button" and "A" is what worked.
Nevertheless, for some silly reason I find it fun to swirl pretend butter around in a cartoon pan and here Mama say something that may or may not resemble the word "awesome."

3.0 out of 5 stars OK, not great fun, and sometimes frustrating June 10, 2007
Verified Purchase
Fun: 3.0 out of 5 stars   
This game is sometimes very difficult to play, and the controls are extremely difficult for younger children to understand. The Wii remote does not seem responsive enough ("fast" enough) to work with this game sometimes, and sometimes I feel like the game does not understand what motion I am using. As a result, you end up frustrated. One of the hardest things for me to master is adding ingredients to a pan in the right order so that the fastest cooking ingredients (like onions) don't burn first. The game doesn't really help you understand this, and it doesn't help you through it. I'm an adult and can't master it -- imagine how it would be for children.

There is a wide variety of games within this game, so you won't be bored. However, the sound is not clear. Usually you can't understand what Mama is saying. The graphics are OK.

Honestly, I think they should have "cooked" the game a little more before releasing it. The concept works well with the Wii controller, but it is far from perfect and not nearly as smooth as the control in Wii Sports. This is not the game that makes me want to turn on my Wii.
