Honest Gamers writes: "When the Cooking Mama franchise made its DS debut, people were surprised by how simple yet addictive it was. Who knew that a series of mini-games built around a virtual kitchen setting would prove to be so much fun? Gamers were able to chop, dice and bake without any mess to clean up afterwards, all to create the sort of recipes they would never even dream of attempting within their own homes. The refreshing design left players all over the world completely enamored. Sequels followed. Now, only a few years later, Cooking Mama: World Kitchen marks the fourth entry in the series to arrive on North American shores.
