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.

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

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

Cooking Guide: Can't Decide What To Eat?

5 June 2008
  • 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
