Iron Chef America Supreme Cuisine 

 

Iron Chef America Supreme Cuisine is an interesting cooking game that feels a lot like Cooking Mama, but has a twist. Like the television show, the player competes against another cook trying to do the best dish for the judges. Pick your chef, dishes, and then make them to the best of your ability within a short time frame. After everything is prepared, then the dish has to be presented. The presentation is a lot of fun, and lets gamers express their artistic nature in a safe way.

The graphics throughout Iron Chef America Supreme Cuisine are generally pretty good. The food looks great, throughout all stages of the cooking. I did  notice a few of the female chefs were borderline questionable with their clothing attire choices. I have personally not seen very much of the show, so I am not sure if a few like to dress in a way that might distract a male. Thankfully they did not distract me, because I was all about getting my food prepared.

The judges are some of the most negative, rude, and mean characters I have ever come across in a video game. They might be attempting to be funny, but they fail consistently. The comments they make about the chefs preparation, presentation, and taste is plain wrong. On the sunny side of things, Iron Chef America Supreme Cuisine has great music, and good cooking sounds. This Nintendo DS game could have been so much better if the judges had been more supportive, and less rude.

Ya'll know I enjoy cooking games. I generally do not get to play them as often because Yolanda does such a good job of reviewing them. I was happy to get to play Iron Chef America Supreme Cuisine, and to find there is some nice replay value to it. There is a story mode where all of the different (in game) chefs can be challenged. Can you beat them all? Wireless play is also included so more than one person can participate in this DS game at the same time. The catch is each player has to own this game.

There is a lot of good things to say about the gameplay of Iron Chef America Supreme Cuisine. The preparation exhibits an intelligent design, and the dishes are generally pretty high brow. Odds are few of us have eaten, or will eat many of the dishes prepared in this game. It is interesting to see the rudimentary example of how to prepare these dishes. You won't be able to walk into your kitchen and cook any of these, but it could help someone decide if becoming a chef is a career path for them. The down side of Iron Chef America Supreme Cuisine is the controls are a little touchy at times. A few of the mini games required real precision. In other words Iron Chef America Supreme Cuisine is not as forgiving as Cooking Mama.

Iron Chef America Supreme Cuisine has a couple of issues with it, and that is mainly in the attempts at humor by the judges. There is alcohol mentioned in this game, but it is mainly in relation a cooking ingredient. I do think Destineer has a good idea on their hands, and with a few upgrades Iron Chef America Supreme Cuisine could challenge Cooking Mama for the cooking game crown. I would like to see sequels, and am pleased to see another cooking game on the market.
