Nintendo Wii/DS Reviews | Famitsu On Cooking Mama, Jet Impulse

By Mike Mason 31.01.2007 7

The latest review scores from Japanese gaming publication Famitsu have come out, with them scoring Cooking Mama: Cook Off on Wii, Luminous Arc on DS and Jet Impulse, the plane dogfighting DS game from Nintendo.

  • Cooking Mama: Cook Off (Wii, Taito): 6 / 8 / 8 / 7 - (29/40)
  • Jet Impulse (NDS, Nintendo): 7 / 7 / 7 / 7 - (28/40)
  • Luminous Arc (NDS, Marvelous): 8 / 7 / 7 / 6 - (28/40)
  • Those looking forward to Jet Impulse may be disappointed by the score, as it has been looking rather good in its last few appearances - though of course 28/40 still is not a bad score.

    Out of interest, SEGA's Virtua Fighter 5 on Playstation 3 scored a great 35/40 (9/9/9/8)!

    I thought Cooking Mama Cook Off would get a bit more than 29/40, but I guess that is a pretty decent score for what it is.

    Whoa at Virtua Fighter 5 Smilie

    Mike Gee of iZINE said, "...The Verve, as he [Richard Ashcroft] promised, had become the greatest band in the world. Most of the critics agreed with him. Most paid due homage. The Verve were no longer the question mark or the clichť. They were the statement and the definition."

    This isn't a good sign for Cooking Mama. This score might be fueled by the trend of of these "Mini games" games. The Nintendo DS has an over abundance of them and I don't know how ready people are to keep shelling out $50 for a reworked $20 value game that was enjoyable on the DS.

    I still have hope that this games if fun. I love the original.

    Virtua Fighter 5 has always looked to be an amazingly popular game to be honest. I'm glad it is coming to the 360 anyway. As for Cooking Mama, well...the DS game wasn't as fun as I thought it would be (even though it is still a "laugh"...), so I wasn't expecting the world for th'Wii game. Even then, 29 isn't bad by any means Smilie

    Okay i kind of understand virtual guitaring on guitar hero...but virtual cooking!?!?

    Normal cooking on its own is way too much!

    Check out the trailer for jet impulse

    It looks so cool...Famitsu generally don't like shooters so i'm guessing thats the reason behind the low score - I'm still keeping my hopes up.

    Avoid Games Like the Plague, productivity++

    Virtua Fighter 5 looks orgasmic

    Cooking Mama is quite good fun! The disadvantage is that you don't get to do the best part of cooking...eating the food!
