I really liked this game, I just wish they had added more content. 30+ recipes is a bit deceiving, as they count all the parts of one meal as separate recipes. For instance, pancakes with bacon counts as two recipes and Cheese Quesadillas with Tomato Salsa and Guacamole counts as three. As you can imagine it doesn't take long to work through all the recipes in the game.

Other than how short it was I had no other complaints and still think it was worth purchasing. The game play is fun and I actually picked up quite a few good tips! I liked that the recipes were real and would actually work in my own kitchen. I recreated the pancakes with nutmeg in real life and they were delicious! Hope they make a sequel - just with way more content.

This game would be really fun except it is a rip of. It tricks you to say it has '30+ Recipes', but they count each meal as about 3 or 4 recipes. There is only 12 Meals! what a rip off! But for the gameplay it is fun. I am used to Cooking Mama, but this is ment for an older audience than Cooking Mama. Basically, you pay about 3.50 per meal on this game. Fun but a big waste. I wanted to LOVE this game. Too bad. Could've been great, if they included more recipes.

As mentioned by others, this game is fun and I like the real-world aspect of the game.

I was looking forward to finishing the first screen of meals and moving on to really complicated things seen on FN like reductions, bread baking... they could have gone really far with this game and made it wonderful.

I felt completely deflated when I realized the one screen of meals was the entire game.

Food Network should offer every product holder a free download on Wii of more meals to protect their good name. I would not buy a FN game again even though it was fun - because of the lame length of the game.

I liked that I could play this with my son. I think he, at 14, picked up a few cooking tips, but I'm an experienced cook and there wasn't anything noteworthy there for me as far as cooking or recipes went. It took me a while to pick up the game, but it was fun learning how to play it. My son jumped right in and was beating me in no time. The controls were easy enough, I think I'm just getting old. :)

I felt like it was a good family game. We played it a good bit for about 2 weeks, then he beat it, and lost interest. It's fun enough when you are playing it, but it wasn't overly memorable for us after a while.
Good family fun though, and I noticed my son's interest in REALLY cooking perked up after he got this. I have to give it a 4 for that reason alone.

I didn't expect much from this game, as I figured it was going to be more just a fun idea but short on execution. I'm glad too see I was wrong.

You can play Cook or be Cooked in either single player or 2 player mode. In single player mode you work on completing a recipe in a set amount of time. Each recipe is different in how much time it takes to both prep the ingredients and also in cooking time. Depending on how quickly you are able to finish the meal and how well the food is cooked (i.e. if it's been burnt at all), you're scored accordingly. When playing 2 player, you each cook at the same time and both try to outscore each other in making the same meal.

You use the Wii remotes to do everything to the smallest detail, like chopping veggies, flipping burgers, string the soups, mixing salads, draining water and even turning on and off the nobs on the gas stoves. The angle and speed of how you chop foods with your remotes is even scored. The more accurately you do it, the higher the score.

You start the game with a handful of available recipes. As you get better at making them and complete them with a high enough score, you then unlock more. While there is not a ton of recipes, it does take time to unlock them all.

Cook or be Cooked is a surprisingly entertaining game that is the most fun when you have a second player to play with you. Hours of fun and the content is appropriate for anyone in the family. Everyone from kids to grandparents, and everyone in between can have fun with this one!

I picked this game up on sale and what can I say? I didn't expect much. I've never finished a Wii game before and I was hoping that Cook or Be Cooked would be enough motivation to dust off our old Wii and give it a try.

This game is so much fun. Not only that, it's based off of actual recipes and you get really cool cooking tips during the game! What I like most is that there is a great aspect of realism when it comes to gameplay. Multitasking is important, as well as speed. This game is incredibly easy to pick up and I think anyone can learn. I was cranking out silver medal dishes after two tries. Not only is it easy, it's really interactive. The controls aren't all finicky like in other cooking games and you can pretty much make do with vigorously shaking your Wii-mote and nunchuck when chopping.

If I had a complaint to make about this game, it'd be the lack of content. I'm definitely no avid gamer and I ended up beating this game in two days. I really wish they added more than just 30-odd recipes to the list. They have breakfast, lunch, dinner, but no dessert!

Either way, I highly recommend this game to adults. I bet kids would like it, but it doesn't have the childish fun aspect to it like Cooking Mama or any of those kid-centered games out there.
