A nice little pick up and play.,
This review is from: Cooking Mama 3 (Nintendo DS) (Video Game)
Having had cooking mamma 1, I quite like the series of games. Most of all because of the ease of just picking up this game and getting straight into it, you can either do a few recipes then put it down or sit there for hours playing through it. It is very similar to the original game (even down to the occasional unresponsiveness of the touch screen controls) except with the addition of a few extra mini games, but to be quite honest they don't add much to the overall gameplay as the actual cooking is still the most fun part. Although this game is aimed at a younger audience, I still managed to find some of the recipes challenging even after a few attempts. Being able to customise your outfit and kitchen equipments add a bit more of a personal touch (especially recently over christmas when i noticed festive change of background and outfit). All in all, the third installment has retained what made the original game interesting and added some new features which will be appreciated by the younger audience.
