Summary: My 11 year old is obsessed with baking. She loves this wii game because it can be played by 4 people. It's fast-paced, and all about baking cakes. Her 9 year old sister likes to play with her. One player will take the money and the other fills the orders. This was a mom-win.
Summary: First, shipping and price were excellent. My wife wanted this for mothers day, and her and the boys play quite often. So thrilled that this game and the service were outstanding. Thanks to everyone!
Summary: My girls and I have played this game on the PC so I was excited to try it out on the Wii. I watched my 8-year-old happily making cakes until about the sixth level... all of a sudden an impossible scenario presented itself. She want from ecstatic to extremely frustrated in just one level. I even gave it a try and had a hard time when it came to multiple orders (2 cakes for one customer) and layered. It's sad :( My girls now play the first 4 chapters and then start over...
Summary: I fell in love with Cake Mania on the DS and have tried it on every platform I could find it on since. This version is so frustrating, I wish I hadn't wasted the money. The sensor limitations get annoying (wasting time trying to change a tv channel or select the right cake shape) but even more annoying than that is the unbearable loading time in this game. It's so bad it would be upsetting for an rpg or otherwise extremely more detailed game.
Summary: I've never played the computer version of this game, but I do own it for the DS. I was OBSESSED with this game when I played it for the DS, so I was excited when the Wii version came out. However, there are a few things to note before you purchase the Wii version of this game, whether you've played it for either the PC or the DS, or if you've never played it before. FOR THOSE WHO'VE PLAYED * Nothing new to worry about in regards to game play.
Summary: I bought this game at a going-out-of-business sale, hoping it might be a fun game to play with others. I have played the computer game, but was hoping this would be different. The story is not the same and the controls are very difficult to use and are frustrating. I'm an adult and I'm not on my Wii constantly, but I don't find this game fun to play at all.
