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