This is yet another in the long line of cooking games riding on the back of Cooking Mama's success.
While some of these have been average, just being an identical copy of cooking mama with slightly different graphics - this is NOT one of them.
Don't let the promise of a storyline and mini-games make you believe this is something special, they are used to cover up the appauling gameplay. Where Cooking Mama actually required a little skill in parts this requires absolutly nothing! anything classed as even a little tasking is done for you, leaving you the simple task of pointing and taping......thats it.
When told the heat needs to be turned down, what it means is "im going to turn the heat down while you just stand there" - When making a sandwhich or burger your not even allowed to build it yourself!! The teacher tells you what goes on and then does it yourself, even in freestyle your still not given the ability to this.
Honestly if not for the reading this game would be best rated at 3 and UNDER not 3+
The best thing you can do is go to the search box and type in Cooking Mama 2 because even with its rather simple gameplay, its still more entertaining than this.
