    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.

    Overcooked contains all the necessary ingredients for a truly excellent co-op game.

    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.

    It's been a while since I've had this much fun with a local multiplayer game on current gen consoles or PC.

    The real charm with Overcooked
    It's been a while since I've had this much fun with a local multiplayer game on current gen consoles or PC.

    The real charm with Overcooked is that it's core, it is a functional and simple game that relies on creative level design to challenge its players.

By the end of the game you wish there was more variation in the kinds of food you could make though, and online play would have been great. Expand

It is a perfect game to play with friends, with very easy controls, excellent level design, and super fun gameplay. With a few difficulty spikes here and there, the game is easy to play but difficult to master. All in all, this in one hell of a recipe, and a definite buy for parties. Expand

    Playing it
    I played the whole game with my girlfriend and we had A BLAST. Overcooked is a PERFECT, casual, co-op game to play with someone.

    Playing it solo is not too much fun, though, as you still need to control 2 characters yourself, which becomes a hassle. But having someone to yell and laugh with is just so much fun.

    I've been missing games like this for a while and do hope the developer releases an expansion or some DLC with more stages and recipes. This game was worth every cent. If you are looking for a quick, casual, fun, co-op game, I recommend this 100%!

    good fun in coop but getting all the stars (which is required to unlock some of the later levels) is relentlessly hard
