Vooks
2 July 2008

From the simplest dishes like Macaroni Cheese to complex international cuisine, Cooking Guide is one game, if you want to call it that, that gamers cannot do without.

Cooking Guide: Can’t Decide What to Eat? DS Review

DarkZero
15 July 2008
  • Excerpt: Reviewing Cooking Guide: Can’t Decide What to Eat? as a game is the equivalent of Jeremy Clarkson casting his critical eye over a caravan. In truth, there’s really nothing for me to comment on as it is not really a form of entertainment. In contrast to other ‘non-games’ like Brain Training and Wii Fit there really is no game to speak of in Cooking Guide, as it is purely a piece of interactive software to help you prepare and get better at cooking.

Review: Cooking Guide: Can't Decide What To Eat

N-Europe
6 July 2008
  • Conclusion: Sizzling just below perfection yet leaving a pleasant taste in the mouth, Cooking Guide is a unexpectedly novel idea pulled off successfully. Just don't come crying when you've mastered your favourite dishes and never use it again.
  • Pros: A Cooking Guide that works!, Classy presentation with lots of speech/video, Brings the DS one step closer to taking over your life
  • Cons: A little on the pricey side, Limited UK dishes, Lasts as long as you want it to

Expert Review

Official Nintendo Magazine
4 July 2008
  • Excerpt: Ignore the slightly misleading title. The subtitle Can't Decide What To Eat? makes this sound like a neurotic weight watchers bible - something Victoria Beckham would buy to help her work out if her latest diet will allow her to have a crouton in her soup. In fact, Cooking Guide: Can't Decide What To Eat? is a recipe book for DS.

  • Conclusion: Absolutely not a video game in any shape or form – but something that's more immediately useful than Brain Training and its ilk

  • Excerpt: Nu er Cooking Guide, som titlen måske så rigeligt antyder, ikke et spil i traditionel forstand – det er faktisk slet ikke et spil i nogen form for forstand – men ikke desto mindre synes vi alligevel det fortjener en tur igennem hele anmelder-møllen, for konceptet er faktisk ret smart. Denne type af madlavnings-programmer er desuden rasende populære i Japan – så hvem ved om det bliver den nye store ting herovre?

Cooking Guide: Can't Decide What to Eat?

PS3Hype
30 June 2008
  • Summary: Cooking Guide: Can’t Decide What To Eat? moet je niet beschouwen als een game, maar als een interactief kookboek voor op je Nintendo DS. Is Nintendo erin geslaagd een handige en leuke kookhulp te maken? Ja, daar is Nintendo zeker in geslaagd, en niet zo’n klein beetje ook. De uitleg is helder, het geluid doet wat het moet doen en de graphics zijn gewoon goed.

  • Conclusion: När du hittat den rätt du vill laga hjälper dig DS-kocken att steg för steg förbereda och laga maten. Man kan röststyra DS-kocken, men det fungerar inget vidare smidigt eftersom han tycker att smör som fräser i en stekpanna låter som ”continue”. Använder man touchpadden för att klicka sig vidare i instruktionerna fungerar det smärtfritt (så länge man inte petar på den med smet-kladdiga fingrar, naturligtvis!
  • Pros: Smart, interaktiv kokbok som tänkt på det mesta!
  • Cons: Röststyrningen är galen, musiken är värre och det är [i]inte[/i] ett spel
