Another disaster brought to you by the Wii-mote

Cooking Mama... how we love you. You cutsie colors, your unintelligible mumbling, your international cuisine cooking friends... your inability to simply shake a pan while cooking popcorn.

Yes... its that bad. Yet another import from Japan that had wonderful promise of being a cool novelty game only to be cut down in its infancy by the Wii-mote. I know I'm no master chef but if the Wii-mote is suppose to be 'shaken' and not 'stirred' then why the heck isn't this thing working when I shake it!

I don't normally rate anything so low as a 1 but this certainly worked hard to earn it. When my wife (who is a calm and collected person that deals with twins ALL day long) flips out within 3 minutes of cooking... its a bad game. Particularly after I tried the same thing to prove her wrong (never try to prove a woman wrong) and she is so obviously right.

Cooking Mama, you burned my buns, or more correctly my popcorn, literally, they just burned and wouldn't shake around after all the cajoling and looking like a fool while shaking the Wii-mote at the screen.

SUMMARY:
Skip this, watch martha stewart living or the Food Channel with about 20$ in materials... it will be more fun even if you have to clean up a mess. Besides, I guarantee you won't have to worry about how responsive that chef's knife because it won't connected to a Wii-mote.

When you play this game the controlers do not work like they should . This game only has a few recipies so it gets old fast. I rate this as one of the worst games I've played
