My kids and I got this game with very high expectations. A lot of people told us it was a great game for the Wii. The three of us found the game weak and lacking coherence. The game consist of a series of uninspired mini games with little relation with cooking. I truly think they missed a chance to teach about cooking in a fun game. This is the fastest I've gotten bored with a game.
I rented this game for my sister and we had high expectations we loved the D.S. version it was new and fun. But then we played cooking mama cook off it was frustrating some of the mini games that required a simple movement were extremely frustrating! One example is the popcorn making to cook the popcorn you point the wiimote at the tv screen and move it back and forth BUT the game somtimes would not respond to the movement and the popcorn would blow the lid of the pan so please dont waste your time with this game...you might make your little sister cry like i did =(
