This game could have been enjoyable if some more thought had been put into it. About the only thing about this game that is Iron Chef is the theme music. That part they nailed. The graphics are rather dull even for the DS. The controllers are kind of weak and not very forgiving compared to the cooking mama series. The real frustrated part is that I still have no idea how the game does that scoring. Plating: just drag and drop where it tells you. Originality: you only have 8-10 dishes to choose from and they are pretty much the same for each secret ingredient. For me one dish was always praised and the second on was always garage, very frustrating. It is worth a rent if you just want to say that you have played it.
