I had Cooking Mama 2, Gardening Mama and one game on the Wii (not sure the title.) I loved Cooking Mama 2 and I thought Gardening & the Wii one would be similar but I was wrong, they kinda sucked. CM 3 though is so much better. It has more recipes and it's more challenging than CM2 so adults can play too :)
If you've played Gardening and the Wii Cooking Mamas and you thought that series sucked, play this one and I'm sure it'll change your mind.

Cooking Mama....again. While the new shopping minigame is different, it wears out it's welcome by the end of the first stage. The cooking has remained the same, with very little changing in the kitchen. Sure, Mama tossed us some new cooking methods and chicken bones, and got fancy costumes to boot, but gameplay is stale. Vanilla. Boring. Tedious. Need I go on? True, there is still that satisfaction of getting gold medals on every recipe, but it's not as rewarding anymore after 3 games of the same old thing. Kinda like Pokemon. Train, beat gym leaders, fill your pokedex has been it's gameplay for a decade. No different here.
