I generally enjoy cooking games, but there were just some aspects of this game that I couldn't get over.
I have to say that out of all of the cooking games I have played, these have to be the most annoying hosts. After working up a sweat trying to chop an onion and hear her say "Well.....Almost" is very frustrating. And then after completing the complicated recipe they say "Well, it's alright." I did earn a gold medal on all of the recipes and I believe the difficulty and game mechanics were alright (not the best, but definitely not the worst), but their comments were aggravating.
The other complaint I had about this game is that there just aren't many recipes. And if you are playing it to learn how to cook, instead of for fun, just forget it. This would not be a good learning utensil. As far as game to real life cooking, it just wasn't realistic.
