Nintendo Life
Chef provides frantic, old-school pick-up-and-play fun that's just as addictive now as when it was first introduced, and along with the other DSiWare Game & Watch titles, Nintendo has used the better graphics and sound technology available now in order to make as authentic an LCD handheld experience as possible on your DSi. Granted, LCD handhelds aren't terribly popular anymore for a reason – the games are unavoidably repetitive and extended play becomes boring. However, if you completely missed out on this game in its GBC and GBA incarnations and have never played one of the originals, this is the perfect opportunity to enjoy the very beginnings of Nintendo's handheld gaming history.

Sadly, despite having legendary status at the time of release, Nintendo's Game & Watch titles on DSiWare so far have all been let-downs, and Game & Watch: Chef is not the one to buck the trend. Keep your 200 Nintendo Points for something else.

„Game & Watch Chef“ braucht heute leider kein Mensch mehr. Gameplay, so wie wir es verstehen, findet sich kaum in diesem Titel wieder, die Animationsphasen strapazieren die Nerven heutiger Spieler ganz gewaltig und eine Uhr ist im Jahre 2010 auch kein Killer-Feature mehr. Vor dem Totalausfall bewahrt das Spiel lediglich seine irgendwie immer noch charmante Grafikdarstellung und die Tatsache, dass es wirklich zur Videospielgeschichte dazu gehört.
