For fans of cooking mama DS only.

Yeah, not much of that
The charming Cooking Mama looks good on the wii, the menus are easy to navigate through and would be appealing to the casual gamer.
The wii has the potential to pull off great looking graphics. However cooking mama doesn't put the wii to its potential. It looks low-res and doesn't push the system to its limits, although it does support 480p and 16:9.
Classic tunes similar to the DS version. Music can obviously get repetitive and at times annoying.
The problem with the wii version compared to the DS one is you lose the feel of doing the action. At times the wii remote can be inaccurate. Although contrary to the DS version there is a versus mode which is definitely a step in the right direction.
There are LOTS of dishes to choose from and a VS mode to do. But after a while the game can get boring and is not for the hardcore gamer.
It's a game for casual gamers, but the controls can be even more simple. A combination of a lousy transition and inaccurate wii remote responses makes this game not as fun as its DS counterpart. If you want it: Rent it and see how it plays out, if not, it's not worth your money.
