Rated 8 out of 10 by Natalia Eugene Cooking Mama=LOVE IT!!!!
I loved cooking mama. It was really fun. I played it over at my friend's house and I found it really fun. I'm a fan of cooking myself so I was really excited to play the game. At first I kept failing but then after two or three tries I made an excellent lasagna! The "Cooking Mama" character is really cute and when you fail she gets angry and stuff. And what's great about this game is that its really diverse because they have food dishes from all over the world. Including, USA, Germany, Italy, Japan, China (etc.). And it's realistic because there's this one part in the game that if you're making a recipe that needs eggs...you have to crack the eggs. And sometimes if you crack the egg too hard (the way you crack the egg is tipping the Wii Remote to the left) then it'll break! I love playing against my friends to see who made the better cake...or whatever! I would definately recommend this to anyone especially little kids and teens who enjoy cooking. Even parents, anyone who would enjoy showing off their culinary skills!

Cooking mama cook off is all about making food from all around the world. Including India, Spain, France, USA, Japan, and Italy. The sound and music of this game is ok I guess. You never heard these sounds and they are all random. The realism of this game is not awful but regular, just plain. There is no interface for this game I think because all you do is making recipes. The controls of this game is not comforting. When you are being timed you have to finish the recipe as fast as you can. And when you are rushing to finish the recipe sometimes the wii doesn't respond and you get fustrated and then the time runs out. And finally the graphics is clear, cartoonic, and kind of like 20 steps from perfect. When I play this I have to be so close to the sensor bar because that is how it responds. Also I don't know if these are actually real recipes but why wouldn't they? If you want to know how to make food from the world and if you don't have a cook book you could actually use this. So if you want to know how to cook foods step by-step then I suggest you play this.
Rated 7 out of 10 by Dziller Good for a moment.....
This game is fun for just an hour and I mean just an hour. Its not all that fun becasue the person that suppose to be your mama is always disclaiming you if you mess up. Thats not good parenting , now is it. The controls aren't all that bad but they are something that you will have to get used to. They are annoying if you are used to games that do everything for you. But i guess they are ok but not great in any way. You'll love this game for the realism and the technique that you will have to put into it. If your'e not a good cook than you won't have fun playing this game but it's interesting how realistic this game can be. When you scramble eggs they actually use real ingredients and actual timings and it'll pull you in the game so easily. But, it's still sorta difficult if you neva played. The graphics are just plain disgusting and not interesting at all. The graphics are barely worked into and lame as it can be. And lastly and overall this game is just gay but not to gay. It's fun for the time being and thats it. So yeah if your looking for a game that's fun for just a moment buy Cooking Mama:Cook Off!
Rated 10 out of 10 by Wii Queen Cooking Mama: Cook Off AWESOME!!!!!!!!!!!
I love cooking mama: cook off! It is the best game I've ever played. Sometimes you get a little frustrated but once you get it right you feel great! The graphics are wonderful and cooking mama acts like a real mother. You mess up she gets mad you get it right she complaments you! If you like cooking mama for DS you'll LOVE this cooking mama. You can make about 300 recipes from about 10 different places! It is the best wii game ever. When ever my friends come they beg to play it then when they have to leave they beg to stay. Sometimes when I go to there house I can hear them begging for their parents to get it. Even if they don't have a wii! If I were you I'd buy it mostly if you like the DS version but if you hate cooking and cartoon mothers don't buy it. I love cooking mama very much. It is the best wii game in the world!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Rated 8 out of 10 by WiiStars I thought it was good
Cooking Mama Cook Off was a pretty fun game to play.From all the different and exotic recipes to choose from to the preparation of each dish,it all was fun to play.The gameplay was very cool,the graphics arent great,the sound can get annoying,and Cooking Mama is very replayable. Basically,the point of the game is to cook the food.If you cook the food up to mamas expectations,you unlock a new dish.Very simple.Even though it was simple,it still was very creative.My favorite part of the game was the food.You can cook anything from your normal hot dog and cheeseburger,but you can also cook exotic food like japenese sushi and asain curry.I like that they took different cultures of foods and put it into a kids game.So all and all,I think Cooking Mama earned a well-deserved 8 out of 10.I thought it was good!!
Rated 10 out of 10 by Wii Gamer Worth $**
Totally. Some of the actions may be hard but very fun. I think it does not get boring even after an hour! Cooking Mama for DS is way easier in my opinion. But if you think the DS versions are very super hard then don't buy it or you'll think it was just a waste of money. Another thing I like about this game is that it helps you use the Wii remote in ways you didn't know. Also is you get angry sometimes about doing stuff again and again this is a no no. By the way if your one of those people who don't have nunchucks with your controller it doesn't matter because you don't need one! Finally, a game with-out a nunchuck it is hard for me to find one these days! So if you like both or one of the DS Cooking Mamas then totally get this. If not and you think they were really hard you might not want to buy it.
Rated 3 out of 10 by SlyFox299 This game is not what it is worth...
I just got this game, and thought "Hey, this looks fun, and at a great price too!". Only Pro to this game is great price. The cons include: Bad graphics, really lame voices, e.g. "Wonderful! Better Than Mama!", and somewhat difficult controls. If you are wanting to buy this game, please, save your money, as you won't regret it. Believe me, this would have to be one of the worst games for the wii at this time. Even wii points cards have better value than this, and THEY ARE CHEAPER! When it first loaded up, the graphics looked okay, but the gameplay is very bad. I still cannot even handle the controls well. I failed the first 2 times. This is the kind of game where if you make a mistake, the object you have worked on still turns out fine. So, to sum it all up, save your money for Mario Kart!
Rated 9 out of 10 by Lilly This is fun
i luv this game...but sometimes you get underpressure...other than that it's v ery fun. You have limits of time to get it correct. You have to chop, dice, peel, remove back, sati, cook, bake and so much more. I think this game shows why top cheifs of 5 star resterants are sometimes underpressure inorder to finish and complete their dishes...this is a great game!!!! I LUV IT!!! This is like the best game for me but not for you maybe i don't know. You never know until you try this and i think you will enjoy to play this game underpressure. You'll jump squal, eep, and just krinkle up to the time yo have to finish each dish. This game is the best of the best. Think you got the skills to be a top cheif? Think again.....or maybe you do have the skills to become a top cheif.
Rated 10 out of 10 by The Zohan 3322 Beautiful but very annoying sometimes
CMCO is a very good game. I myself love shooting games, but my favorite hobby is cooking stuff. And I was very amazed. I heard very bad things about it. But it isn't bad at all it is my favorite wii game so far. Chopping is so real. I played this a LOT on multiplayer. It's really so much fun no matter what. I love how it has some good recipes in it. Like Ratouille and Cream Puffs its so fun. It's hard and easy and sometimes just downright funny. It is so good on the 2 player mode. I love cooking so much I cooked this Thanksgiving. It's better playing this than really cooking. It makes me happy just looking at the box. It has good mini games like preparing fish. Either way I love it better than any game i've played on the wii. It really cooks up a BIG appetite.
Rated 3 out of 10 by Shorty16 Don't Waste Your Money!
Before buying this game, I checked the online reviews, and many of them said this was the best two player cooking game. Because of this, and the appeal of "Cooking Mama", I bought the game. It's supposed to have an awesome two-player mode, but I honestly don't think it does, at all. The whole two-player mode is like a tutorial, and you get directions in everything that you do. I wouldn't mind having the tutorial at the beginning, in order to learn how to perform each task, but there should be an option as to whether or not you'd like to do these things without constant directions. The game is also very repetitious, I found myself repeating the same tasks over and over again, even when making the different dishes available. I also didn't like the fact that this isn't like the other cooking games I've played, meaning that I've played games before where you get customers and you're supposed to cook what they order, this game isn't like that, at least in the two-player mode. Basically, there's a menu and you can pick from a list of about 20 different foods, that's why it quickly got boring. Overall, I wouldn't recommend this game to anyone, unless you were buying this for a small child. I'd say, don't waste your time or money.
