I have tried all the cooking mama games and have found them all enjoable. This game was not a disappointment. In this game you can choose to make items and toys. There is a large variety of crafting items and as in the previous versions you can unlock more as you earn medals. However a new twist in this game is the fact that you can play new types of mini games which unlock as you build your items. For instance you can play with the paper airoplanes by blowing into the mic and getting them to stay up longer or shooting at targets with your water gun. I found these activities a fun diversion but not an essencial part of the game. The controls in this game are the same as in all other mama games, you basically use the stylus and sometimes the mic to follow on screen instructions. I never had any trouble with it and my eight year old cousin also mastered the controls with little difficulty. Finally for alot of the items you can choose which colour or pattern you want to make it . Personally I found this game the most enjoable from the mama series.
I played every cooking mama series, from the first one until the third one..
And also played Gardening mama also.
When I tried to play this series, i thought it would be the same like the other of "mama" series.
But I was wrong, in this series you will make many thing bout handycraft.
And almost every item has different type and colour to choose, as example : we wanna make a handkerchief, there will be bout 5 options like what colour that we will make, and if you choose one of it and make it until it finish you will get the item with the colour that you make. And it only fills one out of five coloumn in the handkerchief section.
This series doesn't have much craft to make, but u can make various colour of every items.
And every craft that you already make, you can play with the craft, as example : you already make pillow, so you can choose to play with the pillow, there will be a mini game occur.
In previous "mama" series, you can mixed up items, in this version you cannot mixed up items.
But you can choose what craft you want to make, like with clay.
I think this version is the lamest one.
I don't really like to play this one.
Cause only few craft that you can make.
But it can teach kids to make craft or make kids like to make craft.
Still for me , I don't really like with this version, some of the crafts need a long steps to make. So it make me pretty bored of it.
But you still have to try this one if you are a "mama" series lover :)
