Players are required to complete a variety of basic cooking techniques which you will have the opportunity to practice till you are ready to get started. From chopping and slicing, to wrapping and breading, mama has you you do it all.
Dishes range from salsbury steak to sushi rolls. Degree of difficulty is primarily dependent on the type of task or number of steps required to complete a dish. Some require one or two steps to a combination of several techniques. The more you play, the more dishes you unlock. Depending on how well you do, mama gives you a bronze, silver, or gold medal. However, don't get mama mad or you shall feel her wrath!
Cooking Mama is a really fun game that's extremely addicting. It's hard to stop playing. They make you really want that gold medal! The fact that you are able to see the very basics of how to make a cool looking meal is a plus. I think it's a nice intro to those afraid of culinary arts. The only thing that prevented me from giving this game a 5 is the fact that we finished it so quickly. I wish there were a lot more dishes and greater degrees of difficulty. There were alot of dishes of course, but if you get as addicted to this game as we were, those dishes aren't enough!
An area to improve might be, though not an actual flaw, the amount of menu options to choose from. The kids do ask for more choices of different foods to prepare. Perhaps Cooking Mama 2 answers this need.
My only real grip is that the controls on the touch screen don't always register very well, and that often adds some unneeded frustration. Overall, though, it's worth the small amount of money it costs to play and is a classic DS game that launched a fun series.
First of all, this game is for everyone and it's very hard for me to get bored with it. There are over 76 recipes and combinations of dishes. Plus you have an opportunity to master your skills (i.e. chopping, frying, kneading, and etc.) This game is a great way to keep yourself occupied if you are waiting for a flight, or if you just need something to help you pass the time.
