PopMatters: Despite trying several Wii cooking games since the console's release, I've never really enjoyed any of them. They were always more content than game design, more about pretending you're cooking than actually doing anything relevant to the task. Food Network's Cook or Be Cooked! is the first one that actually reminded me of the mind-games I play while cooking.
It's not perfect, but since the biggest flaw of the game was that I ended up wanting more, I don't think it should be penalized too heavily for it. More recipes, more challenges, and a little bit more complexity in the time design are all this game really needs to be excellent.
