  • Excerpt: If you’re looking to Cooking Mama: Cook Off to make you a great chef, then you’ll be in for a disappointment. Cooking Mama is more a collection of food-themed mini games than it is a cooking sim and playing the game will no more turn you into Emeril than a snowboarding game will turn you into Shaun White. That being said, let’s take a look at those mini games and see if they’re enough fun to keep you distracted while your mac and cheese burns on the stove.

  • Excerpt: Better brush up on those julienne techniques. Cooking Mama, the quirky cooking sim on the Nintendo DS, is moving kitchens to the Wii. Bigger, bolder, but not necessarily better, Cooking Mama: Cook Off exhibits a new blend of gameplay that inevitably spices up the same old dish. In Cooking Mama: Cook Off players tie on their aprons for mama, domestic goddess and chef extraordinaire.

  • Conclusion: While it boasts many new recipes over the DS version, as it should, there still isn’t much for Cooking Mama: Cook Off to offer. Players can complete of the recipes in a few hours with many of them lasting just a few minutes themselves. Multiplayer at least adds a bit of replay value, but isn’t very exciting or fleshed out either. In the end, Cooking Mama can be fun for a while, but it doesn’t take long for the fun to run out.

Expert Review

NINTENDO WiiX
31 January 2008
  • Conclusion: Cooking Mama ist ein Spiel, das auf Wii wirklich niemand mehr braucht: Eine Minispielsammlung. Trotz des innovativen Konzepts und des ansprechenden Umfangs (alleine das einmalige Kochen aller Rezepte dauert ca. drei Stunden) kann der Titel nicht überzeugen: Viele Minigames sind anspruchslos und die schwierigeren fordern nur deshalb, weil die Steuerung nicht funktioniert oder man einfach nicht weiß, was zu tun ist.

Cooking Mama: Cook Off

Outerspace
9 April 2007
  • Conclusion: Cook Off é um jogo que deveria ter sido aperfeiçoado do DS para o console principal da Nintendo, mas a falta de história e a jogabilidade inconsistente tornam o jogo divertido apenas por algumas horas. Já o multiplayer – uma das novidades desta versão – é realmente interessante, pelo menos até quando os jogadores não se revoltam com os controles.
  • Pros: Efeitos sonoros realistas;, Você pode aprender a cozinhar alguma coisa de verdade;, Modo multiplayer bacana.
  • Cons: História superficial;, Controles confusos;, Mini-games repetitivos.
