Cooking Mama 5 isn’t the deepest or freshest experience around — it’s an iterative rather than innovative entry in a series whose core concept of stylus-based cooking gameplay remains the same as ever — but for the right audience it’s a whole lot of fun. Master chefs looking for a challenge won’t find much to satisfy them here, but series fans, younger gamers, and anyone with an appetite for fine food, cuteness, and simple mini-games will definitely enjoy what Mama’s got cooking.
Cooking Mama 5 follows the recipe to a tee. It uses the same tried and true gameplay, graphics, and sounds that the other games made famous. While this makes the overall game an enjoyable one, it certainly doesn’t do anything to dissuade series fatigue. If you’re really looking for a cooking simulation fix, this will fit the bill. If you were hoping for a newer, fresher Mama, then you’ll end up sorely disappointed.
