  • After a blossoming outdoor spell in the hugely successful Gardening Mama, our favourite celebrity chef is back in the kitchen tantalising taste buds and testing cooking skills with a whole new cooking adventure. As well as boasting over 80 recipes, 200 mini-games, four player multiplayer (using single cart DS Download play) and classic Mama game play, Cooking Mama 3 now offers two totally new game modes. ‘What dish can you make’ lets you choose two ingredients from a list and Mama will come up with a tasty recipe containing them both for you to cook. ‘Lets go shopping’ challenges your memory as Mama sends you out to the shops with a list of ingredients to buy, but watch out for confusing food signs and forgetful shop assistants who will try to sell you the wrong items!

    Cooking Mama is by far one of the most popular game series out there, as it caters to both young and old, as well as experienced and new gamers. The third installment in the series, Cooking Mama 3: Shop & Chop, brings in a sort of new game mode where Mama goes shopping for supplies. Mama is controlled with the stylus, where you can direct her to supplies needed (each level has different supplies and varied amounts), or away from other customers and employees. When run into, throw you into a random mini-game you have to figure out on your own (no instructions are given) and if you fail the mini-game, Mama loses a heart, and at three strikes you are sent home. You get scored, and if you collected all of the supplies you were prompted with at the start of the game mode, you get a Bonus, usually stickers to decorate your Cooking Journal with, or clothes to dress Mama in. The controls are frustrating and unresponsive and everyone moves faster than you do, so avoiding the repetitive mini games proves more challenging than fun.

  • “Mama provides a truly unique gameplay experience which can’t be replicated and always delivers,” commented Ian Howe, Managing Director of 505 Games. “Cooking Mama remains our most successful series to date and we know Cooking Mama 3 will only serve to build upon its existing legacy.”

Cooking Mama 3: Shop & Chop Review - IGN

The Cooking Mama games were a bit of a surprise. Who'da thunk a cutesy, cartoony series of games about making crullers and tea would prove so addicting? Unlike many other cooking games on the market, Cooking Mama 3 doesn't offer real recipes or teach you to cook them, but there is a lot, after all, to be said for fun for its own sake.
