    I bought this game as me and my family really enjoyed Cooking Mama 1 but number two was a big disappointment. True, there are more recipes, but the methods that you have to use are very annoying! Cooking Mama is as irritating as ever and the graphics are awful! I detest this game now as I get fed up and the whole game gets on my nerves! I strongly dislike this game!

    Oh, where to begin. If you are considering buying this game for more than two bucks at a garage sale or bargain bin, put it back and step away. The cheesy Asian engrish voice-overs (and this one will reinforce every lame stereotype out there) are worth the laugh, but the game gets frustrating fast. Controls are totally anti-intuitive and frustrating, instructions (written and on-screen)Oh, where to begin.

Controls are totally anti-intuitive and frustrating, instructions (written and on-screen) can charitably be described as "poor", and the complete-epic-fail-ishness of it stops being amusing pretty quickly. Too bad - could have been an pretty entertaining family game. Expand

    Don't expect to learn any parenting tips that can be applied in real life. And don't expect to see any gender-based issues brought up either. However, as a game it may fill some niche with 3-5 year old girls with parents who want to perpetuate the stereotype.
  2. Cooking Mama World Kitchen isn't bad, but it could have been better. [Holiday 2008, p.80]

    World Kitchen tries hard to spice up the already tasty Cooking Mama recipe with new characters, slapstick rescue minigames, and cheesy-in-a-bad-way voiceovers, but the results leave behind a funny aftertaste. It'll do in a pinch, but I prefer Cook Off's well-balanced helpings.
