    Visuals and sound are touched up enough that it does not feel like shovelware, but it also doesn't try to be more than a typical mini-game collection.

    Cooking Mama 5 isn’t the deepest or freshest experience around — it’s an iterative rather than innovative entry in a series whose core concept of stylus-based cooking gameplay remains the same as ever — but for the right audience it’s a whole lot of fun.

    Bon Appétit is the same old, enjoyable, Cooking Mama game. If you have played it before, forget it. If you have a kid or a little brother/sister, Mama can be a funny teacher.

    Not so much Masterchef, more Easybake oven.

    It doesn't add anything new to the classic formula. Maybe the time has come to try new recipes, even for ol' Mama.

    With a wealth of content, improved controls, and some addicting minigames to play, Cooking Mama 5 has brought the series back up to par– here’s hoping Majesco can push forward even more and really make the franchise shine if it ever graces us with a sixth installment.

    Cooking Mama 5: Bon Appetit is happily devoid of cohesive design. Its title character grins as she coasts on the series’ prior successes, and exists today as a shallow, uninteresting non-game.
