    Beat it in less than a day

    This game was way to easy, after you did one recipe you unlocked another so that's how I beat it in a day. Spent $50 for it and it was not worth it. When you are making the food it takes less than a minute to chop the... Read Full Review

    It kept me entertained for 5 minutes at least.

    Cooking Mama on DS was a great game. It also would have suited the Wii. Something seems to have been lost in the transisition between the two consoles. It loses its appeal very quickly. The voice acting for the differ... Read Full Review
