I admit it, one of my guilty pleasures is playing video games. How can I resist when I see my husband playing them as a way to unwind after a busy day. While he enjoys the shoot 'em up games, I prefer either dance, kareoke or Cooking Mama games. So, when I heard about Majesco Entertainment coming out with Cooking Mama 2 for Wii, I had to get my hands on a copy to review.
I received this new release a couple of weeks ago, and have already beaten both games -- "Cooking Mama World Kitchen" and "Cooking Mama Cook Off." You don't have to be a gamer to enjoy these cooking games. They are easy to learn how to play, and once you do, you will be hooked. Yes, the graphics may be simple and the games easy to master, but this popular video game is more for entertainment than actual video gamer type games. You can play by yourself, or challenge a friend to a cook off.
Out of the two games that make up this new Cooking Mama 2 Wii release, I have to say my favorite was "Cooking Mama" Cook Off. I enlisted my husband to help me review this game, and play along with me. He usually doesn't give these types of games the time of day, but after having me beat him the first go-around, he wanted a rematch. :-)
Now, when we are looking for something fun to do for in-home date night, I always suggest a cook off Cooking Mama style. So, if you are Cooking Mama fan and own the Wii console, you will want to pick up a copy of Cooking Mama 2 today? Or, if you are like me and like entertaining video games without all the blood and gore, this game may just be what you are looking for. :-)
You can buy Cooking Mama 2 and other Cooking Mama games (for all gaming consoles) at your favorite retailer, as well as through online sites. This game is selling at Amazon right now for only $29.99.
