Summary: Cooking Mama is great fun for anyone with small children or who spends time with them. The game is very bright and colorful, it's simple to play and keeps them interested by having a wide variety of recipies to make.

Summary: Cooking Mama Cook Off Wii is a Wario-Ware style arcade game made up of a variety of short movement-oriented activities. You can play alone or with a friend. The game has a number of recipes from around the world. You can make a custard from England, some spaghetti or lasagna from Italy, or pirogies from Russia. Each recipe has a fairly realistic set of ingredients and instructions. My grandmother was from Ukraine and I used to watch her make pirogies.
Summary: The game is not as much as you would think from the cooking mama online games... also... It is VERY...Japanese? The characters have a tendency to mutter things in Japanese that don't sound anything like English, so that is pretty funny. But The game is pretty lame overall, not really like action mode of doing things it is like step by step follow the instructions on the screen...two player was alright..
Summary: Ok, having said "ditto" to what the others have said, let me just put my two cents in. This is a cute game, though I'm not wanting to sit and play it for hours on end, but it's a nice distraction when I need one. You can play for a short time or a long time, it doesn't really matter. And I do like that because sometimes my time is so limited that I do not have time to sit down and play a really involved game. So in that way it's a nice game.
Summary: This game doesn't really teach you anything, but it gets you competitive toward other people if you play it with someone else. Its not fun if you play it by yourself, but if you play it with another person its pretty fun. Its kinda hard to control, especially when you do the cracking eggs step, other than that its ok.
Summary: Not a challenging game, just a silly, fun cooking game. I have NO idea what MaMa is saying half the time but it doesn't interfere w/the game- it just makes you laugh. My 8 year old just loves this game. Without realizing it we played for over an hour yesterday. I'd recommend it for families w/kids under 10.
Summary: I had played this game on the DS for a while and loved it so I thought it would be great on the Wii also. Its ok the graphics aren't as good and its a little harder. It is still sorta fun though. Quick and easy transaction. Thanks.
Summary: Cooking mama cook off is all about making food from all around the world. Including India, Spain, France, USA, Japan, and Italy. The sound and music of this game is ok I guess. You never heard these sounds and they are all random. The realism of this game is not awful but regular, just plain. There is no interface for this game I think because all you do is making recipes. The controls of this game is not comforting.
