When I heard that there was a Cold Stone game I actually thought it was going to be pretty good. However, upon booting up the game I knew that was no longer going to be the case. I guess it's not bad, but it certainly is lackluster. To start off it's only a 2-player game. You can choose either the career mode, or the versus mode.
We chose versus mode, and were thrown right into the mini-game action. That's not even a clever segue. There were absolutely no controls given, or introductions. It was just a loading screen and then the game was going. In each one we had to figure out what to do. Absolutely none of them were complex and all involved simple movements. Shaking the Wii-remote put sprinkles on some ice cream, chopping fruit, and twirling the Wii-remote to mix stuff together. There were only about seven games and they all took like 30 seconds tops. We played versus a few times, and it probably only took about five minutes...

As a party game it wasn't the worst. It was just some manic fun, but there was next to no content. In order to get a more fully realized picture we decided to play some two player in career mode. It was essentially 2-player Diner Dash. Customers would walk by the store very slowly with their specific ice cream orders over their heads. We would then have to scoop the ice cream into the proper cone and put the correct toppings on. Whenever anything would run out we'd have to play the mini-games from the versus mode. It was all quite boring.
I don't really know what to say about this one. The game costs like $10 on Amazon now, but even that price might be too high for a game that's a ripoff of Diner Dash with around ten mini-games in it. It's not a bad game, it just isn't a very good one!
