Product Details:

The evil Neo Cortex has turned the creatures of Crash's island into horrific mutations! But by using a whole arsenal of new combat moves Crash can hijack the monsters and gain control of their awesome powers.

  • Everyone in the family can get involved. The software offers up age-appropriate kitchen tasks, so settings can be adjusted to indicate whether younger helpers are old enough to handle knives or adjust stovetop controls.
  • Everyone involved in the cooking process can rate favorite recipes. When you're looking for a family favorite in the future, a search function makes retrieval easy. Users can find something for every taste and occasion by browsing the 300 recipes by ingredients, difficulty, cooking time or even calorie count.
  • If the cooks in your party don't know a marinade from a marmalade, prompts appear within recipes for specific terms that they might need more information about. Users can then watch helpful how-to videos to show them what to do. Users also can hear audible instructions and use voice commands to navigate the software during the cooking process.
  • If multiple people on your cooking team have Nintendo DS systems, you can wirelessly transmit select recipes to them, even if they don't have a copy of the game card. That lets you concentrate on the entrée while your assistants tackle the side dishes.
  • Just as with a traditional cookbook, users can take notes. The software's handwriting-recognition feature records notes about personal touches users add to their recipes.
  • All the recipes have been created by editors, food scientists, tasters and cookware specialists at America's Test Kitchen. They've taken the guesswork out of finding the best recipes, which leaves you and your assistant chefs to focus on the fun of cooking.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great Fresh Food Ever wanted to get started cooking, but just didn't know where to start? This is a great step-by-step way to make delicious food fresh in your own kitchen! Though not nearly as good as it's cousin "Let's Get Cooking" for 99 cents at your local GameStop this is a deal that CAN NOT BE BEAT! There are even options to let the little ones help with the food preparation. The best thing since grilled cheese with tomato (yes, that's one of the many recipes)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fun & Delicious I love love love LOVE this game! It has 300 recipes. All of the ones I made were really good. The directions are easy to follow. I like that you can mark certain recipes you want to try. You also have a calendar where you can put the exact day you want to make recipes. The sound commands aren't the greatest. You have to get really close for it to work so you might as well just touch the screen. Also if you like to play music or talk to someone while your cooking it picks up random words and repeats, goes back to, or goes to the next step. It can get annoying. If you don't know what a certain ingredient is, you can touch it and it will show you a picture and tell you about it. If you don't know how to do something for example chop an onion, it has really cool video tutorials showing you how to do it. Each recipe says the amount of time it takes to make, how many servings it makes, and how many calories each serving has. Overall, I love this game and I recommend it to anyone who loves to cook!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This is NOT a test...this is the REAL DEAL! It's been (literally) two years since i've used my Nintendo DS for anything more than an alarm clock, but when I had heard that this cart was coming to the DS, it breathed new life into the system. I'm 30 years old and I can't cook worth anything, so it was time to see what something of this nature could do on a "children's" gaming system. I wasn't the least bit disappointed. Right out the gate, the game welcomes you (depending on time of day) "Good evening! It's time to get cooking!". The voices are tinny, but nothing less than I would expect from a handheld gaming system, the music is subtle and "backgroundy" while the soundFX are decent and not overbearing. The game is considered multiplayer since you can assign multiple chefs (If you're cooking with friends or a family) to be assigned to certain tasks, if any of your chefs should be too young, or inexperienced, you can restrict that chef to assignments which DO NOT require the use of heat or knives. So with all of that out of the way, how does this actually compare to something to the effect of a cookbook? There are 300 recipes of all types that you can choose to make, each recipe comes with not only a fully detailed explanation of how to prepare, AND cook the food in step-by-step based instructions, but also a breakdown of what utensils are needed. It gets better, in addition, most everything is voice guided! It will allow you to announce "More Details" which will prompt the game to begin an explanation of whatever required you to request greater detail of something or "Continue" if you've finished a step and want to continue without getting your food-laced fingers on your DS, a "Repeat" option, "Go back" option, "Start Timer" option (for timed steps) and more! The game creators definitely were hard at work when they made this game, they've also included VIDEO TUTORIALS of more difficult tasks and some educational clips, such as how to properly hold/use a knife, how to chop various vegetables and more. If you're a picky eater like myself, then you will appreciate the ability to filter out ingredients. Once you've removed an ingredient, the cookbook will still reflect a dish that has the ingredient you chose to avoid, but there will be a small "X" indicating that an ingredient that you do not wish to consume is present in that particular dish. If you like to schedule dishes, you may do so with this cart as well! Another very thoughtful aspect within includes the ability to select a dish or dessert (or whatever) and select a day of the month to make it, the game will actively remind you (as long as it's turned on) that you have a dish that you wanted to make on that date and will allow you to select it. What can be better than that? The game actually has preloaded dishes for special days such as Mother's Day and Christmas! The dishes you select and make can be assigned a 1-5 star rating so that you can remember how much you liked it! All in all, if you're looking for a fun way to learn how to cook, or if you're looking to involve other people in a "cook night" at your place, then this cart is DEFINITELY FOR YOU! If you want a cart that will serve as an interactive cookbook which will help hone your skills or even teach you slowly how to cook and impress people with what you've learned, then this is DEFINITELY FOR YOU! Pick up this cart and you WILL NOT be unhappy you bought it, it's worth every penny!
