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.
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.
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 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.

Fun little cooking game. The kids love it, but get frustrated easily. I find that some dishes are difficult even for me. Game could be a little easier.Published 21 months ago by CraigM
