Cooking Mama (Nintendo DS)
Cooking Mama challenges players to use the stylus as a master kitchen tool to cook 76 real world dishes ranging from pepperoni pizza to cabbage meat rolls. Players use the stylus to chop, slice, pan fry, knead, grate, mash, peel and more. Under Mama's watchful eye, players must first prepare ingredients, then combine, cook and present the final meal all via the touch screen. Players can even cool down dishes by blowing into the DS microphone.

Within the first few minutes, i was disappointed with the game - it wasn't what i expected.
I imagined there to be a storyline to it and thought that it would be rubbish without one - however, after playing for 5-10 minutes, I was hooked, it really is a fun, addictive game that is worth buying - especially at the price its selling for.
I would recommend this game to anyone really - its easy enough for younger children, but can also be challenging for older players.
Now I have got into it, it really is quite good fun. It is a very safe game for all the family. My 5 year old lad loves it and happily chops, cooks and grates away. He particularly likes cutting the squid!
It is not taxing on the old noggins in any way, just a pleasant way to pass the time. It makes full and clever use of the DS stylus so it really does make the most of the touch screen's capabilities.
I guess older kids will tire of it quickly as there is no story and it can be frustrating if you can't get the gold medals, but for anyone else that just wants something to while away the time with, I'd say try it!
However once all the recipes had been unlocked (about 50-60), all that was left to do was to try and improve your ratings for each one.
Plus the multiplayer option is just one dish (burger), so no life in that either..!
Despite this, it is still worth getting for a month or so, then trading in for a new one..
The tiny, three line reviews ive read on here so far dont do this game justice. So i decided to wrote my own.
Price: It cost me #19.99 from Game. Even cheaper on amazon ;-)
...Anyway. I had seen the advert for this on tv, and wanted it straight away. As soon as i had bought my nintendo ds, i bought this game as well.
Some people are confused by the fact there are no 'levels' as such, like most games. You dont have a character, or choose a name. It is what it says on the box- a cooking game! You can choose to practice a skill first, which i reccomend. You can try frying, peeling, grating, an get ready for when you want to...
COOK! Choose from a long list of foods to cook. Then follow cooking mamas step by step instructions (each stage is timed, to add excitement, and frustration! :-)
In this game you only ever use this stylus/pen. The buttons are pretty much obselete. It is very satisfying, hands on game.
I would not reccomend younger children to play this game- there is some reading, and it can be very frustrating for people with short attention spans.
However, if you like the sound of it, you will probably like playing it too! 85% recomended!
