Review: Cooking Mama 3: Shop and Chop (Nintendo DS)
20 November 2009
Summary: Cooking Mama 3: Shop and Chop is not only a great use of the DS hardware, but also just a darn good game in its own right. I can easily recommend it to anyone with a DS. If you’re a guy and you’re feeling put off by the fact that this is a cooking game or that it is clearly geared towards young girls, you need to get over that feeling. The game is simply too much fun to ignore it for those petty reasons.
Summary: Fresh from the harvest in Gardening Mama, Mama's heading back to her kitchen roots with all-new recipes, ingredient shopping, dish combinations and multiplayer cooking challenges. Explore your inner creative chef with everyone's favorite culinary cutie!
Excerpt: Cooking Mama 3: Shop & Chop, the latest in the Cooking Mama series, doesn’t necessarily mean you need to be a gourmet chef. Rather, it’s about how good you are at putting recipes together on time.
Summary: Cooking Mama 3: Shop and Chop sticks to its tried and trusted formula of mini-game fun with a good pick-up-and-play appeal. If you're looking for something short and sweet, then you won't be disappointed whether you're a newcomer to the series or an experienced virtual chef.
Excerpt: Cooking Mama was released three years ago. It offered 96 different recipes and saw you making meals by playing numerous different mini-games. It was fun. Cooking Mama 2 was released 18 months later. It offered 80 different recipes and saw you making meals by playing numerous different mini-games. It was fun too, even though it seemed a bit of a cash-in for being far too similar. Cooking Mama 3 has now been released another 18 months later.
Excerpt: Se você for voltar para a cozinha do DS, não espere muitas novidades em Cooking Mama 3: Shop & Chop . A mesma cozinheira sorridente está lá para te receber e ensinar a cozinhar algumas iguarias culinárias, com exceção aos pratos esquisitinhos. A fórmula do jogo é exatamente a mesma dos anteriores da série, com direito as mesmas frases de incentivo carregadas de sotaque da simpática Mama.
