DO NOT PLAY THIS GAME

This Game Is really Bad. Why would they put it on the wii instead of Nintendo Ds? Its Really Hard For You To Play On A Wireless Controller. Its Really Like The First One But even Worst. If You Plan On Not Wasting Your Time With Its Shipping of About 4 or 5 days Then Do not Get This GAME !!

P.S- I Really Loved That CSI If You Like Mysteries Check It Out.

This is one of those games you play with a bunch of your friends one evening, with nothing else to do. It's an incredibly fun time-killer if you don't look at it objectively, as some people insist on doing.

Sure, the controls can be frustratingly unresponsive at times, but that seems to be the case with plenty of other Wii games.

The voice acting is hilarious, and the cartoony graphics lend you this carefree, silly atmosphere... even as you're furiously cranking your arm, trying to open up a can of tomatoes before the clock runs out!

That said, the time limits for some of the tasks can be a little unforgiving, while there seems to be a ridiculously long amount of time for other tasks. Also, there's no way you can play through the game blazing a trail of gold marks behind you, as the instructions for slicing, dicing, stirring, and mixing are unbelievably vague. There's no text telling you what to do; only a little pictogram hinting at the proper way to get things done. A lot of trail-and-error, basically.

In my opinion, however, the difficulty level for the game is just as it should be. Were it any easier, it just wouldn't be as fun. The diversity in actual gameplay is a bit lacking, as it's pretty much the same mechanics and manuevers over and over again. But as long as you're having a good time with it, who cares? After all, it isn't a game you sit down with and obsess over getting that flawless score. It's all about laughing at your buds as they try to pull off some ridiculous trick, trying in vain to make that time limit! I'd compare it to WiiSports in that respect more than anything else, as it's a game that'd prove a little lackluster if played alone.
