2 July 2008
Excerpt: A lot of gamers may or may not find themselves endowed with the mastery of the culinary arts, and for those who dont, Cooking Guide: Cant decide what to eat? is a masterpiece in almost every manner. 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
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.
