Not as good as it looks!,
A Kid's Review
This review is from: Cooking Mama: Cook Off (Video Game)
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.
-Fun and addicting
-Mama is not understandable
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.

"Good, not mine," is actually, "You're not mine." And Mama speaks Japanenglish because it's a Japanese game translated by Asians, go figure.

I thought that's what she was saying. I guess Mama's turned a little dysfunctional now.

I thought Mama said "Do not mind" when you didn't very well.
