    Overcooked is a game that could lead the return of the good old couch party games. The kitchens in this game can bring a real chaos to your home, but also lots of fun for you and your best friends.

    One of the most fun and challenging local co-op games ever made, but the single-player experience is less thrilling, making the lack of online play disappointing.

    One of the best party games ever made – and I don’t even like cooking. [10/2016, p.65]

    Overcooked has so much to offer for someone who loves playing games with their friends but, for those of you lone wolves, single player is a little bit of a drag.

    Overcooked is a very funny game, with a good number of content and a brilliant level design. The lack of online multiplayer is the only real flaw of the work published by Team17.

    While it's not nearly as enjoyable as a solo outing, Overcooked is one of the best party games we've played in years. Just make sure you bring some friends or family along for the ride.

    The game has a simplistic style but still feels playful and vibrant, with a fun narrative giving the gameplay purpose. I would certainly recommend this game if you like a challenge or playing with friends.

Most co-op games just require 2 or more people to be playing in the same screen, and that's all the "co-op" you get. In this case, you really need to comunicate and coordinate with your teammates, or you are screwed.

    I've played together with my wife (who's not a gamer), and with different groups of friends, and always had a blast playing. Great game, it really deserves more attention. The only downside is the lack of multiplayer. Hopefully that will be fixed in the future.

I'm having a hard time not liking this game because of how loud me and my friends get. Having to shout profanities so that your so-called "friend" would get the dishes out in time just gives the game such charm. I do hope the developer will continue to support this and add new challenges, cooking methods or even add meals-- like with drinks and sidings just to make it more fun to play with Expand

However it's clunky controls, and missing online features really holds the game back from being truly fantastic. I'm begging for more maps and creative game play! Good work TEAM 17, without a doubt one of the funnest indie games this year! Expand

    Overcooked is probably the best co-op game I’ve ever played. That being said, I actually didn’t play much co-op games… but the feeling remainsOvercooked is probably the best co-op game I’ve ever played. That being said, I actually didn’t play much co-op games… but the feeling remains strong.

    The game is clearly designed to be fun exclusively by playing with friends and family. This may be a weakness from hardcore solo gamers’ perspective, but only focusing on co-op gameplay clearly strengthened Overcooked design.

    The gameplay is fluid, easy to learn and in a few minutes, you get to the first weird restaurant, giving a bit of a challenge and making you laugh with its absurd mechanics. And you go on, trying to get all those yellow stars, in a funny and cute environment.

    The main flaws in my opinion are the lack of some standard features, like online play and multiple saves, and the difficulty curve. This last isn’t quite bad, but you’ll have some smashing streaks and suddenly, you’ll get stuck on a much harder restaurant. The number of levels is quite respectable, as you’ll rarely get bored. There’s always a new tweak, whether it be on recipe or restaurant mechanics.

    I only played as a 3-men squad. This was perfectly fine, very fun and we enjoyed ourselves for something like 15h. The game time will change greatly depending on your wish to get all the stars or not. And your logistical skills of course.

    I fully recommend this game if you want to have fun with friends!
