Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say (3 ):
Kids say (9 ):

If you find frantic games like Cooking Mama a fun and engaging time waster, then you'll probably like this $30 portable game, too. That said, it's more of the same -- just with gardening tasks as opposed to kitchen-centric ones -- but players should find this sequel nicely adds increasingly challenging steps, unlockable bonus items (ranging from garden gnomes to new outfits for Mama) and multiple game modes (including one that lets you trade items with a friend over a wireless connection).

Did we miss something on diversity?

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
