    Overcooked 2 is a chaotic, intense, and challenging multiplayer experience that is so brilliant that it offers countless hours of enjoyment that should be played by everyone.

    Overcooked 2 rounds off, enhances and extends everything seen in the first installment in a masterful way, making it an essential party game for any lover of cooking and a good multiplayer experience. Despite its short duration, its online mode will make the title last much longer with the kitchen at full throttle.

    Having a co-op partner is essential for Overcooked 2, otherwise you’ll miss most of the funny situations, entertaining confusion and surprising difficulty of this game. [Issue #233, p.64]

    New players to the series will enjoy this on its own and since online is now available, this opens up multiplayer play to just about everyone whether you have friends next to you or not. Whichever way you play, this is a fun and frantic experience that everyone deserves to enjoy.

    The continued issues with online play (least on Nintendo’s platform) as well as Ghost Town’s wilful dismissing of a properly-adapted single-player alternative will only go to dwindle the potential audience once more. An audience whom might not see much significant change from what is still essentially an unaltered recipe from previous, but will still find immense joy in partaking in when part of a group. Which is a shame, given how well-realized Overcooked 2‘s core, emergent style of play truly is.

    The 1st overcooked is one of the most fun i've ever had with a multiplayer game but the 2nd one is even better. So there are 3 modes in theThe 1st overcooked is one of the most fun i've ever had with a multiplayer game but the 2nd one is even better. So there are 3 modes in the sequeal story arcade and versus. story mode just gives you the levels in order and introduces you to things over time. With several new kitchens and elements added it definitely keeps you on your toes trying to go for a high score. Some of the new recipies inculde sushi, sushimi cakes, burritos, pancakes, steamed dumplings and more. Arcade mode has everyone working together online on random levels trying to get the highest scores. This mode can really be challenging as you all thrown in to some of the hardest levels in the game at times and requires everyone to have a understanding of what is going on without voice chat it can be hard to communicate with other players but the addition of emotes do help a bit. It does add some funny moments and more stagerty to the game though. Verus mode again put yous online in random stages but this time working with 2 chefs in either team. 2/2 online players is the best fun for this mode but Unfortunately this means if one of your guys quit you can be instantly at a disadvantage or sometimes unable to complete the level at all. At one point i was matched up 2 on 1 with me being the 1 meaning i had to juggle to chefs on my own swapping between the 2 so i just quit and hoped back into the lobby. Load times can be annnoying at times though. There are also a lot of chefs in this game 2 choose from with a lot of variety so they should be one that everyone likes. Overall this game is amazing Its a must buy for fans of the original and for anyone looking for a fun multiplayer game to play with friends or maybe even online with strangers. The only thing is if you live in Australia buy the game on the eshop as its $38.50Au compared to $60Au retail and that extra $20 is 2 much of a cost to justify it Expand

    Great game for the company. I play with my son and both are incredibly happy. Yes, most of the levels cannot be completed the first time. ButGreat game for the company.

    It's a fun experience for teamwork skills and it also has unique stakes to make the game harder

    Overcooked 2 is awesome, just like first Overcooked was, if you can play with someone next to you ofcourse, single player not so fun. Game isOvercooked 2 is awesome, just like first Overcooked was, if you can play with someone next to you ofcourse, single player not so fun. Game is more fun and even crazier than the first one, and I would rate it 8.5/10. If you liked Overcooked you'll love Overcooked 2. it's more of the same with new kitchens, recipes etc. Best couch co op. I played first one on PS4 and second one on Switch, I don't remeber loading times were this long but maybe my memory is little rusty. Expand
