Mama don't be so mean!

ChibiNeko "Sooo many books, so little time!", Amazon
10 November 2009
  • Summary: I love you Mama, truly I do. I've tried everything in order to please you & in the past that seemed enough. When I succeeded, you were deliriously happy. When I failed, you got a little angry but you said that you'd help fix everything. It was out of the love of our previous relationship that I decided to continue under your tutelage again. Now it just seems like our relationship has worn thin.

More frustrating than fun.

Michele Fisher "ChellFeesh", Amazon
11 April 2008
  • Summary: I was excited when we got a Wii because I am not a big gamer (my husband is the gamer in the house), but the games looked really fun and I was looking forward to some games that I could play for a change. Cooking Mama was one I was hoping to get my hands on. Hubby finally brings it home one night and we throw it in while the kids are asleep. Trying to figure out what Mama wants you to do is a hassle.

Not as good as the game play movies and if you are left-handed even worse.

D. Padula, Amazon
25 January 2008
  • Summary: I saw the video of game play for this game on another site and it looked great. I was actually excited to get the game. After playing it for about an hour I am disappointed. First off I am left handed so I hold the Wiimote in my left hand. Too bad everything in this game is geared towards somebody that holds it in their right hand. I guess that nobody on the development team or any of the testers were left handed.

Very unusual video game

Christopher T. Gullen "Film and Media Scholar", Amazon
30 December 2007
  • Summary: I've played some weird games before, but this one really takes it. Like other reviewers, I must concur that "mama" is almost completely unintelligible. At first my wife and I thought she was actually speaking Japanese, but it turns out it's just English in a very thick accent. The music to the game is so annoying I just know it's going to pop up in a dream at some point.

Cute and addictive, but simple and oddly frustrating

Maria S. "mariajl", Amazon
6 December 2007
  • Summary: Ok... what is that woman SAYING?!?!? As many have said, Mama is very difficult to understand. This doesn't seem critical for gameplay... just.... weird. Somewhere in the gaming world of Tokyo is a highly-caffeinated Japanese woman who thinks she has performed an Italian accent. Anyway. Moving on. The game itself is very simple. Childlike. Yet I keep playing it. Why? I would love to know.

OK, not great fun, and sometimes frustrating

Turtle502, Amazon
10 June 2007
  • Summary: This game is sometimes very difficult to play, and the controls are extremely difficult for younger children to understand. The Wii remote does not seem responsive enough ("fast" enough) to work with this game sometimes, and sometimes I feel like the game does not understand what motion I am using. As a result, you end up frustrated.
