I love this bringing console technology in to the kitchen, the whole concept is quite unique. This is a proper cookery guide in the compact form of a ds lite game pac.

You are given recipes to choose from, from all over the world. You can select recipes by ingredients, calories, etc. Plus a calendar keeps track of when you have cooked what when. The recipes give you a list of ingredients which you can alter to suit the amount of people you are catering for. First you do the preparation then the cooking stages. An excellent idea is that you can just speak to the screen and tell it continue to the next section which saves getting your DS wet. This innovation also means it is extremely easy to follow, no more searching on the page to find where you are on the recipe. I liked this a lot and it saved time.

From what I have seen there is quite a vast array of recipes which should cater for many different types of tastes. I could quite easy adapt some of them, ie some of the sea food dishes and substitute a meat instead if the main meat is not one that we like (through my experience with cooking). I have only made two dishes so far but have enjoyed doing them, it brings a bit of fun back into the kitchen.

I like it, Mam of nearly 20 years, and think other people who need a bit of help or those like me who enjoy a bit of tech in the kitchen who have cooked for many years will like it. I also suspect it may be quite handy for my sons whilst they are at uni and want to produce meals of some quality. It is not suitable for young children naturally but for teenagers onwards it is fine.

I recommend it.

Unlike the first reviewer - I actually have this 'Game' and its pretty good.

There are 245 recipes from all over the world (only 10 from the uk though) and they range from soups to puddings.

The 'game' will guide you through every aspect of the cooking process and even has a built in timer for cooking times.

It really leads you by the hand and is really accurate with its ingrediants. You can cook a meal by a ingrediant type, the country of origin, by picture, by name and even by special requirements!.

You can even enter in what you don't like (or allergic to) and the meal list will highlight any meals that contain that ingrediant with a cross.

The 'game' has a voice which guides you step by step and you use your voice to go through the stages - so you can be by the cooker cooking and say 'continue' and the ds on the worktop will move to the next stage and tell you what to do.

It has a ingrediant planner,utensils guide,helpful tips,terminology guide,substitute ingrediants guide,information and picture guide on all ingrediants used, calculator and shopping list so you can even take the ds shopping and work it out as you go. The possible meal options you can tweak are endless.

You can't class this as a game - more of a guide. Some people are bound to say that for £25 you could buy a few cook books - but this is so user friendly and easy to use (it even has example videos, things like chopping onions or filleting fish) that it makes it a piece of cake to adapt recipes.

I saw this advertised and had to buy it, even if it was just to find out that it wasn't as good as I thought it would be... However having used it last night to make a very nice bolognese dish I can confirm that it does exactly what it says it does.

There are recipes from around the world, and the recipes can be adjusted to cater for different numbers of portions, however this is only in multiples of 2 which when you have a family of 3 can mean either making too little or too much.

The instructions on how to prepare the ingredients are great, the video clips are easy to follow and I recommend it to anyone who is starting out with cooking. The shopping list is fantastic for making sure you have all the ingredients and if you live in an area where you cannot purchase "foreign" ingredients there are a list of alternatives which can be used.

The only downside is the voice activation. When I used it I discovered that the sound of chopping ingredients would make the program skip back a place, or even more frustratingly, make the chef repeat things he had already said. I think though that I will have to persevere with trial and error when it comes to the placement of the DS when I am cooking.

There are also a lack of vegetarian dishes in the aid (I refuse to call this a game), in fact if you do a keyword search for vegetarian it brings up 3 dishes, 1 of which contains fish!!

All in all a good buy if you like trying new dishes from around the world. I have a fair few cook books as I love cooking but have often dismayed at having to run back and forth to a book to follow a recipe. This takes away all that hassle.

I'm utterly rubish at cooking. I also cannot allow my mother to try and teach me how to cook because she is annoying when she does so. When I heard about this game I was incredibley pessimistic, it had the potentional to be awful like a lot of DS educational games but this isn't one of them. It's so easy to use, however the voice recognition is an issue though, often not working because of the background noise. Here's a handy hint, pop your DS in a little plastic bag to protect it and you can put your filthy mits on it as much as you want! I love the note taking capability and after cooking the dish I write the rough price of each dish so when I'm skint I can see what I can afford! I'm off to Spain for a month soon where I shall have to fend for myself and this will be a great tool to take with me when I'm stuck for ideas. I also think this would be a great idea for getting kids involved in cooking as it is an innovative, fun and clever tool whilst at the same time appealing to the adult market.
