Zoey Sachs gives a positive review for Cook or Be Cooked in the New York Post.

As has become common in reviews of this game, I’m constantly surprised by the angles from which the game are approached.

“… this game is paradise for those who find cooking therapeutic.”

After a long exclusivity period, the versions other than the PS3 are available worldwide.

DS-X2 reviewer Chris Coyne reports on his experience.


“With a fantastic art style, audio work that puts many games to shame and decent gameplay, Red Fly Studios can be happy with what they’ve achieved here.”

Nintendo World Report’s Neal Ronaghan wrote a good review of Cook or Be Cooked.

“There might be some games in the genre out there with more content, but I doubt they are as enjoyable as Cook or Be Cooked.”

A fascinating article by Jonathan Holmes at Destructoid talks about No More Heroes HD. He points to Mushroom Men (among other games) as an example of the sort of game that could only sprout on the Wii.

“With the success of NMH came many other punk rock Wii exclusives: games like Muramasa: The Demon Blade, Mushroom Men, MadWorld, Dead Rising: Chop Till You Drop, House of the Dead: Overkill, Little King’s Story, A Boy and His Blob, the Bit.Trip series, and many others. Some of them made money, and some of them didn’t, but that doesn’t even really matter. The point is that they still were permitted to come into existence, and that’s something that could have only happened on the Wii.”
