For a Cooking Mama title, the game is pretty good. The game gives you a lot of recipes which are fun to make due to variety in techniques in the mini-games, local download play with friends (which I couldn't use sadly), and you can help mama around the house, though these games are just mini-games like the Game & Watch series. The graphics are pretty decent, but the 3D effect hardly shows since you will be using the touch screen. You can customize mama and the kitchen a bit, which helps to stop looking at the ugly kitchen. You can also combine food, but I find that feature to be lackluster because its only one game with premade food and then the food is combined. Also, the catchy ragtime music is back, which always felt unique in Cooking Mama games. Give this game a try if you are bored.
