Overcooked 2 doesn’t reinvent itself but the new additions are welcomed and definitely enhance a game that already had a good recipe. I’m glad that they didn’t mess with this and have kept this familiar feel. Overcooked 2 allows you to continue with all the fun from the first game with some great new levels.
Kirby will not be one of the most challenging games that you will play this year. However, it is fun and definitely can pass the time with a friend or two. If you’re a fan of Kirby, this game will give you more of the same Kirby that we know and love, don’t expect it to hold your attention for long though.
This chapter brought us some new types of gameplay. However, the story just didn’t bring the punch that we were hoping for and that had been built up throughout the other two episodes.
Episode 2 really aims to build on the story set out in the first episode. There’s not as much gameplay as in previous episodes, this does bring you back to the reality that this is, in essence, a visual novel but also allows the story to be developed in a fitting manner.
Overall, Episode 1 is a great introduction to Before the Storm. It offers what you expect from the series as well as adding in some new ideas. The way Deck Nine have been able to take the concept of the first game and apply them to a totally different character has been great.
