Storyline

Yeah, not much of that

Presentation

The charming Cooking Mama looks good on the wii, the menus are easy to navigate through and would be appealing to the casual gamer.

Graphics

Cooking Mama: Cook Off screenshotThe 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.

Sounds

Classic tunes similar to the DS version. Music can obviously get repetitive and at times annoying.

Gameplay

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.

Lasting appeal

Cooking Mama: Cook Off screenshotThere 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.

Closing comments

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.
