After her initial DS debut, Mama is whipping up some kitchen competition by pitting chef against chef in Cooking Mama Cook Off ? a unique 2 player family game designed specifically for the Wii home video console. Step-by-step, recipe-by-recipe, help Mama cook international dishes from 10 different nations and watch as the realistic foods actually change in appearance based on your actions!FEATURES
- 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! Hold and point it in many different ways depending on the task (i.e. upright to mash potatoes, lengthwise to fry in a pan, etc.) to get the real sensation of cooking in a kitchen!
- All-new Cooking Challenge Mode lets you and a friend go head-to-head in the ultimate multiplayer cook off to determine who can cook the fastest with the fewest mistakes.
- Create 55 real world dishes from 10 different nations: Japan, America, France, India, Mexico, England, China, Spain, Germany and Italy. You can even make desserts like cream puffs and pudding too! From hot dogs to pan fried crab to bouillabaisse, Cook Off challenges you to make it all!
- 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.

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.Read more ›
-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.
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.
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."
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.
