  • Conclusion: Cooking Mama is an acquired taste. If you enjoyed the original, then you'll easily get a huge amount of play from Dinner with Friends. The new recipes alone are well worth the time, and throwing in many new steps and rewards freshens the gameplay. There aren't a lot of major changes to the original formula. At its core, it's essentially the same game only a bit better.

  • Excerpt: The basic premise of the game to cook fast, and to cook accurately. The idea is you are presented with a bunch of recipes, and each recipe is broken down into a step. Each step is basically a mini-game. Does the recipe call for diced onions? There's a little dicing mini game to play. Does the recipe require skewered eel? Then there's a little eel skewering mini game. Perhaps you need to blend corn? You get the idea.

Cooking Mama 2: Dinner with Friends review (DS)

  • Excerpt: Sit back, let the timer run out, and you will still end up with a perfectly presentable dish and one of 68 new recipes for your lack of effort. Doing well gets a good score, but I’m not really the kind of guy who calls up friends to brag about my delightfully moist, and let’s not forget virtual, chocolate cake.
