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

GameCritics.com
11 June 2008
  • 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!

  • Excerpt: Putting me, your friendly Game Freaks 365 video game reviewer, into a kitchen is about as productive as chucking an infant armed with a combat knife on the front lines. I touch spatulas and pots and pans and things go wrong. Three-minute Ramen noodles take me eight. Ultimately Cliff Bakehorn fits with cooking as well as trying to put LEGOs together the wrong way. Well, Mama doesn’t care. She wants me to cook delicious meals.

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).

Game Almighty
5 December 2006
  • Excerpt: Finally a chance to practice cooking without all the cleanup!
  • Pros: Majesco’s Cooking Mama is easy to pick up and play for short time periods. The appealing cartoon graphics and diverse minigames make this an instant recommendation for anyone that tends to play their DS in quick bursts.
  • Cons: There isn’t a lot of depth to the game, but you can’t expect too much from what is essentially a collection of touch screen minigames. However, it is unforgivable that a minigame collection for the DS lacks multiplayer.

Cooking Mama Review

AtomicGamer
7 October 2006
  • 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.
