GRRLGAMER: "I never saw the Iron Chef America television series before I played this game but I'm a fan of Cooking Mama, so this game had a lot to live up to for me. The game tries to recreate the television show and present an interactive imitation for fans, but it will probably lose the interest of those who aren't familiar with the show.
When you start up the game, you will have the option to begin the career mode. After creating a profile and choosing one of two character models, you are pitted against your first opponent and assigned your special ingredient. From there you can pick from about ten different dishes with that ingredient in them. You have the option to pick more than the required number of dishes that you must choose in order to proceed, which will give you less time to complete each task, but there isn't an obvious benefit to doing so."
