Have fun pretending to be a great chef

After reading the reviews, I was not expecting much, mainly because others said they expected it to teach them cooking skills. (go to the bottom to read my comment on this). First, realize it is a GAME and not an instructional cooking guide. Once you get past that mindset, the game is quite decent and can be played by most everyone. The instructions are clearly given during the game and if you go through TRAINING/SCHOOL (strongly recommended at least try a few sample dishes to test your skill and to get comfortable with the motions, which are fairly realistic or representative of the task), you will do better at the game/contest part.

The game does not take into account what you choose to make, just how well you complete each task during the allotted time. The time is quite generous so as long as you get acquainted with the tasks, you will do fine. My only complaint (I am legally blind) is that when you have to trace a path onscreen, it is difficult to see. Other than that, I was able to see and complete most of the tasks. (My wife played "sous chef" for the parts i could not see well.)

Overall, it is a good game, even if it is easy to do. I assume once you move up the ranks, it will get harder.

-As for those who think they would learn to cook playing this game, use your brain! At the retail price, you cannot expect an instructional program. There would be way too much info to add that getting started playing the game would make it uninteresting to many people. This game is to get people a taste of what it might be like competing as a chef. I will say that maybe the game makers, or a competitor, would be good to make a more instructional series for those who want to learn to cook and have a Wii system. Maybe like a Julia Childs or Alton Brown series..oh wait, there is a show... called GOOD EATS and will teach you more than just how to cook.

The idea is good

The idea of the Iron Chef is good, but it is boring and you feel like you have carpal tunnel after you play.
