This is a review for Food Network: Cook or Be Cooked for the Wii,
This game is not like Cooking Mama, this game is not played by minigames, it is like real cooking, and this I liked, I had no problem with the motion controls at all, they all worked perfectly. Cook or be cooked is a two player game, but up to four players can help in the mode "Hot Potato" , which lets you cook a little, and hand the Wii Remote to your friend so he/she can repeat the process. This game uses the Nunchuck controller, and it is not used as much as I hoped . It is only used to proceed to the next step and look around the part of the kitchen your at.
There is a story, if you interpret that as one. Food Network chefs Susie Fogelson and Mory Thomas understand that you want to be the next Food Network Star, and they crawl through your television to judge your cooking skills, but apparently, your television was too small, so they came out the size of a battery. The only thing I don't like about the chefs is that if your food isn't good, they fall to the floor and pretend their dying, thanks guys, that really helps!
The biggest problem in the game is that the back of the game says "HAS OVER 30 RECIPES!" and it does, you unlock them one by one, and the screen only shows 12, but you won't get any more unless you get all of them "Gold" or as I call it "ALMOST PERFECT to PERFECT". so when I found this out, the game pretty much gave me a pat on the back and said, "Now, try to do BETTER now, get ALL of the recipes gold!"
Just like the food you create, the game is rich, you will only want to play it for a short amount of time until you get bored (sick) of it, but it is probably the best cooking game ever made. I give the game a 4.75 out of 5
