This game is very childish but also very addictive. My Mum bought it and didn't like it so I thought I'd give it a try and she's not seen it since. Admittedly it takes the best part of a couple of hours to complete and it's so obviously intended for children, but I can't help but like it. If you buy it for your kids, you'll probably play it more than them but they'll like it just as much as you do!
This is a nice, cute little clever game that I believe will appeal to children and casual gamers. However it only had me interested for about 6 hours or thereabouts so its really up to you if you think that is enough for you, lets just say I'm glad I got it as a gift and didn't use my had earned cash! Despite what some reviews say it does actually get quite hard in some points but for me this was more frustrating than fun. I've heard that Cooking mama 2 is better and, overall, it has had better reviews amongst many gaming journalists. So if you are still up for it, I would get the second one if I were you. But why did I give it a 3? Well, its really not a terrible game and as I say it did hold my interest for a while and the world is very cute and colourful, but I shall be selling it soon!
