Cooking Mama (DS)

ccgr.org
14 July 2013
  • Excerpt: My daughter bought Cooking Mama on sale with some of her birthday money and it’s been quite a hit in our house.  We have had fun doing cook offs and I tend to get more help cooking dinner now.  No joke.  This is also the first game where my kids have gotten better scores than I have .
  • Pros: Educational game play that may inspire kids to start cooking.  It worked for my kids!
  • Cons: Not enough time to do some of the tasks, the controls seem off at times.

Cooking Mama DS Review

Console Obsession
1 June 2010
  • Excerpt: Home Economics. Dreary Wednesday afternoons, glumly watching flies bat themselves unconscious against the classroom windows, before falling helplessly into some-one’s cake mix. The flies, that is, not me. I didn’t often make a habit of falling into cake mix in my youth. *ahem* Cooking Mama. The one thing you can’t say about it is “dreary”. From the opening sequence, to the music, to the animations, nothing about this game is dreary.

Cooking Mama – Review

  • Excerpt: The main thing I have to say about Cooking Mama is that it pains me greatly to give it such a low score. The artwork is saccharine-cute, I love the offbeat concept, and the price is right-but, it's just too shallow and too repetitive to rate any higher. I hate to admit it (and I looked hard for reasons to give it a bigger number) but I couldn't do it. Don't get me wrong-it's a fun, interesting diversion.

Cooking Mama Review

  • Excerpt: Cooking Mama is one of those DS games that seems totally crazy when you first hear about it. Cooking probably doesn't strike you as something that lends itself well to video games, but if you try and imagine all the main tasks involved in preparing and cooking a meal represented as mini-games, you'll be close to understanding what Cooking Mama is all about. The end result is a fun game that makes good use of the DS' touch screen.

Cooking Mama (DS) Review

  • Summary: At $19.99 this makes yet another quality and affordable title for the Nintendo DS library. There have already been numerous reports of DS fans that have been having a really hard time getting a hold of this game, and many retailers such as EB Games have it on backorder. (Ironically I picked it up at a EB Games store this weekend) Don't be a fool and pass this game up as it won't let you or your DS-Lite down!

Cooking Mama

Portable Review
16 February 2007
  • Excerpt: Since the Nintendo DS’s genesis, strange games have been announced for the system, which uniquely draw upon its touch-screen support. Let me just name a few of the ways hardcore DS players have scratched their lower screens into oblivion: performing surgery (Trauma Center), dancing to help people overcome their troubles in everyday life (Elite Beat Agents), and even falling in love (Feel the Magic: XX/XY).

Cooking Mama Review

  • Excerpt: My grandpa really loves to cook when there are multiple people at the house. Generally, though, he’ll cook far more than everyone there can eat and we’ll have leftovers. The food is really good and is great as leftovers a few days later. I’ve tried to learn to cook like him but, no matter what I do, I can’t pull it off. There’s just something about the way he cooks that I can’t match. He definitely makes cooking look easy to me.
