I've had this game a couple weeks now and I have played through 50% of it (it tracks your progress with a percentage). I find this game to be quite fun and relaxing to play, unlike it's rival "Cooking Mama" for the DS which is fun and awesome but NOT relaxing.
Imagine Master Chef puts you in the role of a young girl named Lisa (approximately 12 years old), who is learning to cook to impress her father who is out of town. There is a very lengthy story surrounding this game, where the girl's stuffed animals come to life and are quite chatty during cut scenes throughout the game.
These long pauses for dialogue between cooking lessons are fairly boring but whimsical, even nonsensical at times (poor translation?), but arent bad enough to turn one away from the game.

The meat and potatoes of this game is in the cooking lessons which are guided by a girl named Rachel. They are designed much like the original Cooking Mama with one major difference: NO TIMER! This is a wonderful thing too - cooking at your own pace, not racing against the clock. It's a little less hands-on than Cooking Mama, which makes it more accessible to younger players or those who are a bit new to gaming in general. Best of all - no hand cramps here! You will still find yourself chopping, stirring, frying, baking, etc on every dish but once in a while, Rachel (your teacher) will do one or two of the cooking steps for you (still leaving about 80% or more of the work for you to do though). There are many recipes to do here, 65 of them in fact, ranging from all sorts of local to international cuisine. A few examples are meatloaf, eggs over easy, garlic bread, salisbury steak, minestrone, custard pudding, Japanese pancakes, and much more.

A Kid's Review on February 18, 2008
My mom bought this for me for Christmas and I loved it at first, but then it started to get a little boring.

This game (thank goodness) has no time limit so it is very relaxing, and you get to learn about how some of your favorite recipies are made. It is pretty fun making some of the meals actually. Also, another plus is that you get to set the tables and garnish your food and get scored on your food. Also, freestyle mode allows you to make some meals that you have learned or meals similiar to what you have made.

Now for the bad. There is WAY TOO MUCH diolouge between cooking classes which can be really annoying. Also the mini games are just a pain in the but to do. Another thing is that it is not hands on enough, your teacher, Rachel, does at least 60% of the things. The most annoying thing that I found was that after your dad comes home (which is the whole reason you are taking cooking classes so that you can make a meal for him when he comes home) you start again from the beginning but still haven't learned one dish and one technique.

All in all this game is fun, but can get a bit boring, and need some tweeking.

I got this game when I got my first DS and I love it! This is one of those games where you can go back to it and back to it and back and still never be bored. The story line is super cute and flow's wonderfully with a very touching ending! The food all looks so good and it's all stuff that can be easily made by anyone old enough to cook! I love that once you've completed the whole game there is an area that you can go back and create your own menu's using any of the food that you cooked! If your getting a DS for someone there are three core games that you need to get them: This wonderful game, Super Mario, and My Sims.

Bought this for my 9 yr old daughter, who has developed an interest in cooking. She is new to the DS game system, having never owned any other gaming systems, with limited playtime with other friends gaming systems. Its a very user friendly game. She didn't have to read the manuals first. She plans to actually prepare some of her "creations". I find this to be a more creative game, like a textbook. It's very relaxing & she enjoys seeing the instant results without all the cooking mess. I would highly recommend this game to a someone who's interested in learning to cook. She also received the Fashion Designer game by the same manufacturer.

I did a lot of research before getting this game. I knew I wanted a game that didn't have time restrictions and was good for small kids that just wanted to play slowly at their own pace. I think I found it. My sister got a lot of uses out of this game and since she likes cooking, it was great.

I remember I was obsessed with cooking games when I was small, and it made me a bit happy to think that she may be having a similar experience through this game.

I got Imagine: Master Chef for Christmas last year because I love the imagine series and thought this seemed fun.

It is more relaxed and stress-free than Cooking Mama, and, in my opinion, much more realistic.

In Cooking Mama it is more of a game. They have unrealistic ways of cooking and is just a game with a cooking theme.

Imagine: Master Chef, is really like cooking. You really can burn or undercook it, and you have to choose the right ingredients, and the way you cook is more real. Also, there is no time limit, which is much more realistic. It is also not a series of mini-games, it is actual cooking. I personally hate Cooking Mama, it is just too much, and too stressful! It's just not as enjoyable as this game.

But, if you like a fast-paced, more game-like "cooking simulation," it is a GREAT game. But if you like a more relaxed, more realistic "cooking simulation," than this is the better game. It really depends on your personality.

Also, this game has a nice storyline. It involves a lot of dialogue, but is a fun storyline. You can also customize your kitchen, and the freestyle mode lets you cook all of the dishes you've already learned. It also has a real-life recipe for each dish, which is a nice feature. There are also dog recipes, which is a nice bonus.

The only reason I give it four stars is because it is boring to repeat the storyline and gets boring doing the freestyle mode.

All in all, if you like the more "realistic" cooking games, then this one's great. If you like more unrealistic,
"game-like" cooking games, then Cooking Mama is definitely the way to go.
