    This is easily one of the best co-op titles on Switch and can't be recommended enough! [Issue #30 – November/December 2017, p. 19]

    Overcooked: Special Edition is a spectacular downloadable title for Switch owners to play with their friends locally. I easily lost hours playing right next to a buddy on a couch, screaming obscenities and the names of food items. Anyone looking for a fun party game or a fun cooperative Switch experience should pick up Overcooked immediately. Unfortunately, the exciting nature of the game will wear off for those who don’t have others to play with, which should surely be a consideration for anyone thinking of picking the game up.

    Overcooked: Special Edition is a great co-op game that takes advantage of the Switch portability and Joy-Cons. Sadly its framerate issues prevent from getting a higher score.

    Ghost Town Games' amusing multiplayer experience is back with a porting that feels quite undercooked.

    A good party game for the Nintendo Switch, but a bit limited. A perfect fit for this new hardware.

    As fun as the original version of the game but with more levels and some added flaws that makes this Special Edition good but not better.

    The core premise and style of Overcooked is a perfect fit for Nintendo’s portable console, but its technical performance ruins the experience. There aren’t many issues that couldn’t be fixed with a patch, but as it stands, Overcooked offers an exciting cooperative experience which is quickly hampered by performance issues.

With it's biggest issue gone, the game is basically flawless, with plenty of fun with friends with competition and coop. The amount of areas to cook are great and so many of them have variety that make them unforgettable. Expand

    Awesome game, playing through the main campaign with my brother and other people as well has been so much fun. We have been yelling at eachAwesome game, playing through the main campaign with my brother and other people as well has been so much fun. We have been yelling at each other, but because the game is about teamwork, it ended up being acceptable to yell at other players haha. Anyway after finally beating the main campaign, im so happy with the two extra little worlds which im gonna play tonight with friends. And also the 2 vs. 2 is a very fun way to make the game competitive. IMO this is 10/10 but thats because i dont give a **** about graphics or fps. This game doesn't run perfect, but the gameplay is so much fun. That it carries the game. Expand

    It's a fun game. But it seems to only run at 30fps despite being a fairly simple game, graphically. The biggest issue for me though, is thatIt's a fun game. But it seems to only run at 30fps despite being a fairly simple game, graphically. The biggest issue for me though, is that there's no local multi-switch multiplayer. Which means that you have to all share the same small screen unless you have a TV nearby. Expand

    There are a lot more great party games, do I have to play this game?
    The game motion is bad and the play is boring.

    This game sucks no point at all in anything. Game is only about cooking which is pointless
