Gardening Mama Nintendo DS Review


Unfortunately, Gardening Mama isn't nearly as good as the cooking games because of ridiculously over the top and mundane challenges. One minute, you're watering seeds in the ground, and the next you're blowing away clouds in the sky so your flowers can...

Teaches you a few things about gardening, cute visuals, Mama has a humorous and weird accent

Repetitive and dull mini-games, multi-tasking may throw off rookie players, boring multiplayer

Let's say you want to learn the basics of gardening without getting your hands dirty. Well, leave it to Mama to teach you a thing or two. Gardening Mama is the latest in Taito's simulation games, taking the lead character out of the kitchen and into...

Gardening Mama


One of the greatest times in my young life was in late April when my father and I would drag out the old tiller, tuning it up, and churning the ground. The little plot of ground we harvested from every year brought many hours of hard work and great...

They hit their target, and the target won't care about the review score.

Gardening Mama


Cooking wasn?t enough for Mama. Oh no Mama has to haunt us when we tend to our gardens. Wait, gardening isn?t popular any more? Well then lets have Mama teach us how fun gardening really is.

I think it might be best to keep Mama in the kitchen. If more time was put into the touch screen controls then we?d have a good game here. All Gardening Mama delivers is frustration at the price of $30. Thanks Mama, don?t expect me to be around during...

Gardening Mama Review


Fun in the Sun! Mama's dropped the frying pan and gone back to her roots

Gardening Mama takes Mama out of the kitchen and throws her into an even more frantic garden. The mini-games are relatively easy and some are even mildly educational, but at then end of the day most of them are still fun if you’ve got a few minutes to...

Gardening Mama (DS) review


Mama proves she's willing to get her hands dirty by taking on even more tedious housework. At least PETA will be happy...

Gardening Mama is more Mama and more mini-games, but it lacks the charm and appeal of her kitchen-based outings. Devoted Mama loyalists will find the new settings and visuals a nice change, but anyone else even remotely interested in checking this out...

If you like cooking mama then you will love this!


I do agree with the other reviewer that this is not recommended for children under 10. It is similar to cooking mama except this time you are gardening. The game is divided into different types of gardens fruit orchard, vegetable garden, rose garden...
