  Quite good, but.....

This game is OK, but not for older kids or adults - you would probably enjoy it if you were aged about 10 or less. I say that because when you cook a recipie, all the steps towards making the full meal are virtually the same. Another thing is "mama" is always saying something in her foreign accent... CONSTANTLY which is really quite irritating! But, even if you get your meal terribly wrong, you can still go and unlock your next meal... WHAT IS THE POINT!!! But apart from them points, the game is actually OK! Multiplayer is fun and cooking meals from different countries is OK too! But I would reccomend Warioware: Smooth moves, boogie, wii play and big brain academy more than this though! But you can still enjoy it.

Oh I forgot to mention, it's quite easy to complete!

Cooking Mama on the Wii is absolutely brilliant if you have very small children - my 3 year old loves the game and it helps her practice her fine motor control, she really enjoys all the little tasks ^_^

She doesn't mind when she gets things wrong too, which is great because the game doesn't "punish" her by leaving her stuck on some bit she can't do ^_^

I have to agree with other reviewers that the Wiimote controls don't work too well with the game though (hence knocking off a point) - it can be very frustrating when you can't perform a task properly because the motion sensors don't pick up what you're doing properly :(

All in all though, while it probably doesn't have much long-term playability for adult players, for little ones it's seriously good ^_^

  Rated as 1 * but only as 0*'s wasn't an option

Dire, absolutely dire this is a terrible terrible game for so many reasons-one of which is 'Mama' is something you'd see in a 1970's sitcom if an Italian family moved into a street, the accent is just so surprising considering the PC world we live in

the controls are set to right handed and cannot be altered (although this isn't going to be a widespread problem its still a design flaw) things such as the meat grinder will not work if attempted left handed.

the onscreen instructions are just not adequate

overall spend the money on an additional Wiimote this game isn't worth £2.99 never mind £29.99 I'm just glad i rented it and didn't buy it

  Not worth buying

We rented this thank goodness, i would of been very annoyed if i'd of bought this for £30. No option for left handed ppl, very dodgy motion sensitivity and all in all a bit rubbish.

Mama is so annoying too! we wanted to cook her too.would possibly be ok for kids, but then the actions which don't work well would probably frustrate most younger children.

I loved this game on the DS and thought it would be better on the Wii but was left disappointed, not much in the game to do and would be good if it had been vamped up a bit from the DS but I felt it was the same and not worth the money really, enjoyable game but wish it was better
