Ready, Steady, Cook

Unbeknown to some, the TV series Ready, Steady, Cook is not just an Australian phenomena, however is a popular cooking series around the globe, hence the reason the series has been turned into a fun game.

Targeting casual gamers, Ready, Steady, Cook: The Game beams up players onto this game show as they must create some extraordinary meals in a set amount of time. Like the TV show, gamers must also choose their kitchen which indicative of their symbol, Green for a pepper or Red for a tomato.

Once you have selected your kitchen, you need to select your Chef and similar to the TV series, the five chefs each have their own cooking style which include Mediterranean, Continental, Indian, Asian and Mexican. Once again reminiscent of the TV show, gamers must then choose their grocery bag with two choices, budget or classic and from their, gamers must use the revolutionary control of the Nintendo Wii to cook up some fun and tasty meals.

Thankfully, the game is not just limited to one dish or another, however Ready, Steady, Cook: The Game becomes more difficult as you progress and even gives you access to other ingredients from the Bistro to Gourmet.

The game boasts 60 recipes for budding game contestants to master and through the guidance of your chef, you must prepare the ingredients, bake or cook the food and perform a variety of other virtual kitchen tasks with the clock ticking away in the background.

Apart from the single-player game, Ready, Steady, Cook: The Game also offers an interesting two-player mode that allows the gamer to compete against their friends and family with the winner being judged by the audience like the TV show. However, one change has been made to the format, the audience judges the winner on how many tasks the gamer completed and how difficult the recipe was.

The control system of the game is rather flawless as you chop, dice, bake and perform a plethora of other kitchen based activities. To assist in immersing you into this popular TV series, the graphics are quite reminiscent of the TV show from the way the kitchen is set out to the colours of both kitchens. Although the game won't win any awards for spectacular graphics, the title features those classic Nintendo Wii graphics, colourful and a little Spartan. Add the music and a variety of sound effects from the kitchen and casual gamers can immerse themselves thoroughly in the game.

At the end of the day, Ready, Steady, Cook: The Game is an interesting attempt at recreating a kitchen game and I must admit that we have seen some shockers in our time. Thankfully, Ready, Steady, Cook: The Game is around the middle of the list, however it's simplistic gameplay and cooking theme may run stale with a few gamers. Of course, with that said, the game was not designed for those hardcore gamers, rather it's been targeted at the casual gamer and if they enjoyed the TV show, then they may enjoy this incarnation as well.
