    With Gardening Mama, this videogame mother is officially beginning to wear out her welcome. She's still cute as hell, but the controls are too simple to be engaging and the lack of tutorial in many challenges renders them unplayable.
  2. The minigames are too simple and repetitious. The input system doesn't work well.The whole structure is the same as the first two "Cooking" games, with a botanic twist that doesn't renew a childish gameplay.

    If you're an eco-friendly person looking for an ideal DS experience, or you just want to see what planting flowers with a stylus is like, Gardening Mama might be for you. Be forewarned, however. It's nowhere near as fun as the cooking games.
  4. Mama's sideline in gardening proves to be just as shallow and repetitive as her cookery courses.
