This game was fun for about an hour. after that it was really repetitive. you only had so many ways to prepare the food and it was always the same motion with the wiimote. After 2 hours i beat the game and couldn't help but feel like there could've been more thought and creativity in this game. Then again i am more used to playing the xbox 360 so my opinion might be a little bias but overall i give this game a good rating for family time. My two sons really enjoyed the feeling that they were cooking. So u decide for yourself.

This game is only for the die hard Iron Chef America fans out there. This game allows you to play about 30 or so minigames. These minigames are no more than wiggle the Wii Remote up or down or rotate it. I played it for about an hour before I figured out this was nothing more than a licensed minigame collection. Plus Alton Brown (whom I am a fan of) got annoying after 20 minutes. The best part of the game in the "Training" portion when you can pick the secret ingredient. If you scroll up or down really fast, the announcers queues up the names and it sounds really funny.

We were happy we rented this game first before opening up the new one we received for Christmas. Our Family is a big fan of "Iron Chef", so we could not wait to play the game. My husband was the first to try out the game and our Wii System and remotes are new, so keep this in mind as you read the review. My husband says the game is very limiting to what can prepared unlike the television show. Plus the remotes have a slow reaction time when doing the motions for the actual food prep. Alton Brown is comical, the game gives interesting choices for food preparation, but it does lack the excitement of the show in our opinion.
