    The pacing is perfect, introducing new recipes and level obstacles in a way that consistently keeps the player engaged and wondering what could possibly come next. After having three friends over to play the game, all three of them went home, separately purchased it, and played it to completion either solo or with a significant other. I’m not sure any game I’ve shown my friends before this has had the same effect.

    Aside from from the local-only consideration and some inconsistencies with the scoring criteria and stage layouts, man, what a game. Overcooked is the best co-op experience I've had in recent memory, and despite going back through to fully clear every level, I wish there were more. Don't overlook it.

    Aside from a few minor presentation and performance niggles, Overcooked is a wonderfully executed game, and is one of the best co-operative experiences in recent years. The simplicity of the controls and gameplay make it extremely accessible, while there is still plenty of challenge in the later, crazier kitchens.

    Overcooked nails local co-op multiplayer gaming perfectly. It's incredibly easy to pick up and play, yet coordinating its myriad of seemingly-mundane tasks requires its players to constantly communicate. What transpires is riotous and often hilarious gameplay that's simply great fun to play. Unfortunately, it's not quite as entertaining as a single-player experience, but if you have friends and family to play with, Overcooked is highly recommended.

    There’s an interesting mix of characters and environments to keep the gameplay fresh, and the soundtrack is a delight. It doesn’t hold up so well as a single-player experience because of the repetitive nature if you have to do everything yourself, but it’s a great party game with some friends.

    What it boils down to is that if you have two or more controllers and the appropriate amount of friends to play with, then you should check out Overcooked, but if you’re looking to dine alone, then you had best move on.

    Greatest party game out there. My only issue is that levels are a lot easier when played with fewer people.

I know the idea is bringing back the remote coop games, and I really appreciate that, however, sometimes, I think It should be better if you have the option to start an online campaign. Or even the other players could join your campaign, as well. After all, the experience is kinda frenetic and enjoying. This game is amazing! Expand

    Overcooked is quite possibly one of the best co-op games that I've had the pleasure of playing, and I'm always searching for that one gameOvercooked is quite possibly one of the best co-op games that I've had the pleasure of playing, and I'm always searching for that one game that I can play with my girlfriend. Other co-ops tend to have an alpha gamer problem and well, that means I'm usually the problem. Overcooked, on the other hand, distinctly avoids this by gimmicking its levels such that you absolutely must co-operate and co-ordinate if you want to get three stars.

    As a result, every player is engaged and constantly communicating, which is a good sign your co-op game is doing its job. Take the basics of something like Diner Dash and throw in the added conundrum of managing resources and logstics, and you have Overcooked. Rather than simply bashing out recipes and delivering them, each level has a sort of twist to it that requires players to overcome, be it simply the layout, things shifting around, or even terrain effects (yes, there are ice levels). Quite simply, you can't succeed at this game on your own.

    Even in single player, you must control two chefs and switch between them in order to solve logistics problems. While entertaining to a certain point, juggling the campaign by yourself while controlling two chefs clearly demonstrates that the game needs to have human bodies controlling the individual chefs or nothing really gets done. As the game is designed around couch co-op, it's no wonder single player is frustrating and it's not a hit against the game - you're lucky it's there to begin with.

    A bonus of Overcooked is that even if you're short on controllers, you can split each controller into halves, so if you have two controllers, you can get four players into the game. While it can cause a little bit of confusion sharing a single controller between two people, it's a wonderful addition to the game especially considering the price of a Dual Shock 4.

    Great game. Highly recommended.
