Food Network has entered the gaming industry. They have just released Food Network: Cook or be Cooked. Of course as I read on I find that I am a year late in finding out what Food Network has been cooking up for the Wii. Iron Chef America came out last year and now a year later they have Cook or Be Cooked.
I find this new game title to be very interesting. It’s get your but in gear or you lose. In a way it’s brining reality tv home to you. Just put in this game and face the challenges of creating food with your Wii Remote and Nunchuk. The level of difficulty rose as I went from dish to dish, not greatly, but enough to make it challenging and fun and giving my arms a workout. Just shows how very out of shape I am.
Playing it goes quickly because there are only 12 levels/ recipes to make. Creating the recipes can be fun and time consuming but you get extra points for multitasking. Even with a multitasking element, dishes can be stalled by having to wait for something on the stove. Cook or Be Cooked acknowledges this problem during the preparation of lasagna: at the point in the recipe where it’s time to bake the lasagna, a large timer appears on the screen and speeds through 45 minutes of baking time. Now you have your stove back.
Food Network sent me a copy to review and I’m going to donate it, and a copy to giveaway to one lucky reader.
