    Overcooked! is an essential purchase for anyone looking for an unforgiving but fair, exasperating but enlivening party game for friends that hopefully won’t end the night as enemies. It is a thing as close to perfect as I have played in a long time.

    Overcooked is possibly one of the best smaller titles out on console right now.

    At just $20-odd dollars on consoles and Steam, and with so much replayability with friends, it’s hard to go past this charming little indie title. It’s as simple as they come in terms of what you need to do, but actually doing it is an entirely other thing and you’ll find yourself wanting to wave your cleaver at your teammates in pure, ecstatic frustration, such is the sum of its basic ingredients.

    If you have three friends near your couch, this game is a blast. Otherwise there are better options available on the market.

    A tasty multiplayer morsel that tests eye-to-mouth as well as hand-to-eye co-ordination. [Oct 2016, p.96]

    Once I played the multiplayer mode, Overcooked truly surprised me. This can easily be one of the main multiplayer games any gamer will pull out when they have friends over, as it’s very simple to learn and will have everyone laughing when barking orders at one another. It’s got a unique concept, great gameplay, and almost anyone can enjoy its simple premise. If you don’t have anyone to play with though it’s going to be a frustrating and dull experience, but if you can get even a single person to play with you, Overcooked will have you coming back for one more order.

    The lack of online will clearly put off a few people; however, some odd design choices in scoring and the lack of any true single-player gameplay really stops Overcooked from being the game it could be.

It is playable as a single player game, but gets better with more players. 4 seems optimal. It concept is simple, you and (whatever friends are playing with you) are cooks. You have to work as a team to get orders in on time. There are several levels and each level throws in obstacles like dividers that move every so often, so team work wins the day. It's a really cute game and can be enjoyed by all age groups, great for a family game night. Expand

    As a single player experience it falls a bit short, but that's not why this game was made! It was made to be played with a couple controllersAs a single player experience it falls a bit short, but that's not why this game was made! It was made to be played with a couple controllers and some friends. When you have that, it's a blast! It can be a bit frustrated to get in the flow of the kitchen, but once you do, it a lot of fun and very rewarding. Not an world-changing game, but for a couch co-op, it's a good time! Expand

    L'indé du jour, c'est cauchemar en cuisine mais le mercredi soir seulement... En effet, le principe simplet et simpliste -même à plusieurs-L'indé du jour, c'est cauchemar en cuisine mais le mercredi soir seulement... En effet, le principe simplet et simpliste -même à plusieurs- trouve rapidement ses limites tandis que la difficulté s'accroît rapidement. En solo, c'est encore pire... et on s'ennuie bien vite. On préfèrera sans conteste construire un hamburger en allumettes.

    La présentation est tout aussi simplette avec ses graphismes 16 couleurs et ses **** bonhommes trizos dont le déplacement est étonnamment imprécis, ce qui ne manquera d'irriter alors que tout est chronométré, que des obstacles à géométrie variable se dressent sur votre chemin... et qu'il faut surveiller la cuisson également ! La petite musique guillerette est énervante et les effets sonores sont réduits à leur plus simple expression ou presque.

    Bref, un petit indé bâclé sur une idée qui aurait mérité d'être creusée... et développée au moins correctement avant d'être exploité ainsi à la va-vite comme un surgelé industriel.
