Cooking Mama is by far one of the most popular game series out there, as it caters to both young and old, as well as experienced and new gamers. The third installment in the series, Cooking Mama 3: Shop & Chop, brings in a sort of new game mode where Mama goes shopping for supplies. Mama is controlled with the stylus, where you can direct her to supplies needed (each level has different supplies and varied amounts), or away from other customers and employees. When run into, throw you into a random mini-game you have to figure out on your own (no instructions are given) and if you fail the mini-game, Mama loses a heart, and at three strikes you are sent home. You get scored, and if you collected all of the supplies you were prompted with at the start of the game mode, you get a Bonus, usually stickers to decorate your Cooking Journal with, or clothes to dress Mama in. The controls are frustrating and unresponsive and everyone moves faster than you do, so avoiding the repetitive mini games proves more challenging than fun.

Majesco has made some of the more familiar tasks, such as dicing, mixing, and frying, different, so that it's providing the gamer a bit more of a challenge the previous Mama games. The new additions of the Shop and the Mix have extended the game play nicely. It had always been a complaint of mine that I finished Cooking Mama too quickly, but I feel as if I'm getting a little more bang for my buck. And the chance to send the fruits and vegetables I've grown in Gardening Mama to my Cooking Mama 3 kitchen is a great way to incorporate both games.
