Fun cooking game
7 December 2014
Summary: Really fun game that you can get for very cheap. (I paid $5 and am using it as a stocking stuffer for my daughter.) You can mix ingredients any way you want which is a feature you can't do in similar games like Cooking Mama.
Summary: Jamie Oliver is a well-known cook so I expected interesting and good recipes. NOT so. Some of them look really disgusting. I have the America's Test Kitchen module for my Nintendo DS and just love it. So this was a huge disappointment.
Summary: I bought this for my 8-9 year old daughter. She is really into cooking. She complains that the game has to walk you through the shopping lists and kitchen areas when you first start the game. I've asked her if she has enjoyed the games so far, she says she still hasn't got past all the things you have to learn first before playing. I do love Jamie Oliver and his back-to-basics cooking, but just haven't found the time yet to help my daughter navigate through this ds game.
Summary: We tried some of his recipes, older interface not much multimedia there. They came out better than what we expected. Has some good recipes.But as a game, not that great. Things like pretend that you are cutting a banana.....Mix things in a bowel etc. Not a bad purchase its doing its part in the kitchen, but dont over expect things. They could do better so lets get them to do it.
Summary: This product is less of a game and more of a hand-held cookbook. I started out in the Test Kitchen where you can practice making recipes. Each time you finish a recipe successfully, something is unlocked like a new kitchen, a new recipe or new items for your kitchen such as new ingredients, bowls, dishes, etc. First, I unlocked every kitchen in only one day, and all 25 recipes in only two days! That's right, 25 recipes only that can be cooked in the test kitchen!
Summary: I love this game. I spent hours trying to make the brownies because I couldn't get the egg cracked or forgot to grease the pan. Once I got the hang of it, I was thrilled to get my rating. It was funny because I was thinking I could have gone into my own kitchen and made real brownies in less time. Within days, I had unlocked all the kitchens. Now I get to unlock additional recipes. Great game!
Summary: Let's face it: you wouldn't buy this "game" as a game because (a) there's no element of competition except against a clock and (b) there's only so much game designers can do to mimic cooking techniques with a stylus. You would buy this game because it's Jamie Oliver on the cover, and Jamie Oliver is famous for encouraging people to cook food well. In short, you're buying this "game" because of Jamie's recipes.
