Summary: I have played the CM series on the computer, am huge fan of it. My daughter has this game and I borrowed it from her instead of buying one, I played through it in one day, easy game to beat.. It's repetitive, not my favourite. But it's a great time killer thats for sure. I have played CM Main Street on the computer and I LOVE that one so I ordered it yesterday...There's different shops like flowers and burgers and sushi and I enjoyed that one!
Summary: This is a good game, although I do like Diner Dash better. Cake Mania 2 is also a lot better than the first one. The first one was just way too quick. Took me about 2 days (not playing all of the time either.) It took me a lot longer to beat Cake Mania 2. Took me maybe a few weeks to a month. There are a lot more levels in this one as well. I hope Cake Mania 3 is even better!
Summary: Very much the same as the original Cake Mania. This has about double the game play. You really get your money's worth. The graphics look fantastic on the DSi XL. It makes a huge difference in being able to see the second layer on a two layer cake. If you are playing on a DS Lite then you will have some problems with things being too small to see. The game is still enjoyable though. Customers come into your bakery and order cakes.
Summary: This game has it's pluses and minuses....but overall, I really like this game. THe music is nice...my husband even commented on it as he even stopped playing his PSP long enough to tell me that he liked it too! :) Cake Mania 2 offers 3 games in 1....you can choose to help your friend Resa start up her bakery.....OR you can help your friend Jack SAVE his bakery.....OR you can play the ENDLESS mode (in which you don't get extra lives and you just play until you lose...
Summary: I really enjoy playing this game. The only problem is that when I play it, I do not realize how much time I've spent on it! If you love any type of "time management" games (which I found out is the type of games these are) then you'll love it! There are lots of levels, so you can't beat it too quickly. I like the endless game also. Right now I'm kind of stuck near the end and can't figure out what I need to do to get past where I am, I guess play a little faster.
Summary: I really liked Cake Mania 2. It was pretty easy to beat and of course the concept is the same from the first CM but all in all it had some really cool upgrades, awesome new characters and the neat part is that you can start over and go down a different path to have a different outcome with her jobs. The only thing I really didn't like, which was previously stated is that it took too long in the beginning to get started and the twins were kind of annoying.
