Cooking Mama 4: Kitchen Magic for the 3DS

Game Overview:
She cultivated your green thumb in Gardening Mama, turned your world into a work of art in Crafting Mama, and rocked the little ones to sleep in the innovative Babysitting Mama, but Mama's talent is truly unparalleled in the kitchen.  The original video game chef is whipping up all kinds of fresh fun in her 3DS debut.  From new recipes and ways to play to exciting kitchen activities and dish combinations, the iconic kitchen cutie has some tricks up her sleeve that will magically transform kitchen newbies into master culinary artists!

Cooking Mama has been a favorite in this household for awhile now (thanks to facebook), my middle daughter adores playing it and when I had the opportunity to review this game I had to say yes.  I knew my daughter would be thrilled, she got the 3DS for Christmas in her stocking so it was perfect timing to be given this chance.  Of course, not that there was any doubt, my almost 6 year old really loves the game.  She enjoys the cutting and cooking and stirring, everything that we've all come to love about "Mama" is in this game, it's such a fun game, but a little slow.  I mean, I find myself getting bored, it doesn't help that I'm an impatient person, but really, everything is on a timer and you're trying to beat the clock but if you go too fast the things spill or break or whatever upset could happen with the task, it does.  But I guess that is the challenge of the game.  I do enjoy playing it, and it's easy enough for my three year old to play without difficulties.  I think it's a very cute game, but I do feel that it's too slow for myself, personally.  I find I get very bored quickly waiting for the one task to be finished for the next to start.  But, luckily, this game is geared toward children and my three who can play the 3DS love it.  Mind you, the 3D part is not good for children under 6 because their eyes are still developing and it will mess with them.  I don't even like to play it with the 3D on.  I have never been a fan of 3D, not in the movies and definitely not on my hand held video games.  This game itself is wonderful.  I could have done without the 3D though. 

  I give this game 5 out of 6 thumbs up.
