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 (DS) Review

411mania.com
29 January 2008
  • 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).

  • Conclusion: Graphically, the game is clean and simple. The Japanese anime-style really shows, and the game just screams cute quirkiness. The graphics are nothing elaborate or impressive by any means, but it certainly isn’t ugly. Players will be able to see what’s going on, and the layout is effective. Sound is pretty basic, and none of the melodies will stand out. It’s just background music to set the mood. The sound effects are nice too, and fit in effectively.

Expert Review

Official Nintendo Magazine

  • Excerpt: As Brain Training promised to keep your minds sharp, Cooking Mama is claiming to teach you how to cook using your DS. However, unless you want your potato salad to look like vomit we suggest you ignore this Mama person and take advice from the professionals. She's no Delia Smith.

Test : Cooking Mama 2 : Tous A Table !

GameHope
12 October 2014
  • Summary: La maîtresse de maison la plus souriante de l’Univers a fait son retour dans ce deuxième épisode sorti chez nous en février 2008, pour le plus grand bonheur des excités du stylet. Alors que le troisième numéro approche (il sera en magasin le 13 novembre pour être précis), voici un rappel de ce qu’on pouvait trouver dans Cooking Mama 2 : Tous à Table en prévision d’un comparatif. Bon appétit !
  • Pros: De nombreuses recettes, Une difficulté qui s'adapte naturellement, Souriant sans être niais
  • Cons: Trop de plats et d'ingrédients inconnus des joueurs européens, Tient difficilement la longueur malgré le contenu, Voix en anglais

Cooking Mama

Game-Focus
2 March 2014
  • Summary: Finalement, Cooking Mama n’est pas un jeu offrant une grande profondeur puisque le jeu ne consiste qu’à effectuer une série de mini-jeux étant assez similaires. La simplicité du jeu ne plaira pas à tous et plusieurs abandonneront sans doute le jeu à cause du manque de variétés. Il s’agit cependant d’un bon jeu pour ceux qui aiment effectuer des petits jeux sans avoir à se casser la tête sur des énigmes compliquées.
  • Pros: - Bon concept - Utilisation intéressante du stylet - Système de médailles nous poussant à faire encore mieux
  • Cons: - Redondant - Bande-son répétitive - Contrôle parfois imprécis
