It's hard to knock the Delicious Last Course on anything other than I just didn't find it very fun - as was the case with the base game. Everything else though, from performance to visuals and music, is top notch. If you're a bit of a glutton for punishment and want some more bosses to fight, the Delicious Last Course might be up your alley. And, for only $7.99, it's pretty easy on the wallet.

The Delicious Last Course feels like a completion of the ideas introduced in Cuphead rather than an evolution of the run-and-gun platforming gameplay, which will definitely delight and satisfy hardcore fans of the original classic title.

Cuphead: The Delicious Last Course is a fantastic addition to the Cuphead package that offers more of everything you loved about the game. Unfortunately, the only downfall really is how short it feels, and the unbalance of the solo and co-op difficulty.

Cuphead: The Delicious Last Course is the best finale Cuphead could have. Boss fights are more refined and are full of moving elements to keep an eye on with great attention to details.

‎Cuphead: The Delicious Last Course is a perfect DLC to say goodbye to Cuphead and think about the future of the saga or any new IP that Studio MDHR can bring us. The DLC offers an expanded and improved view of the game and introduces a new playable character that completely changes the way we play.‎

The Delicious Last Course is in fact so good that it will tempt you to go back and try the original Cuphead again before playing it for the second time.

While not perfect from the minor addition of more RNG variables that I experienced and the very minor hiccups during gameplay, Cuphead: The Delicious Last Course is an incredible experience and recommended for anyone that already owns the base game. It adds a lot of gameplay that to me is equivalent in time played to the original.

If you’ve enjoyed Cuphead, The Delicious Last Course is a must buy as it not only provides a handful of new and exciting bosses to fight, and a host of different challenges in the way of the King of Games levels, but also an entirely new way to play both the expansion and the main game with the inclusion Ms. Chalice. Hope you’re not too full as this is one hell of a dessert!

The geniuses behind Studio MDHR once again demonstrate their incredible imagination in an extra chapter that, despite being as detailed as the content of the original Cuphead, falls short in length and content.

Cuphead: The Delicious Last Course is aptly named for a variety of reasons, each more on-the-nose than the last. Yes, the player is tasked with gathering ingredients for a special treat at the end, but more importantly, it lays out a smorgasbord of delightfully diverse boss fights that all (mostly) prove the quality that MDHR delivered in Cuphead five years ago was no fluke. Most importantly, each and every inch of this DLC is rich with stunning visuals that add layers upon layers of eye candy onto Cuphead’s already sumptuous art. Miss Chalice is icing on this layered, dense, satisfying cake, giving players a whole new way to approach the beloved boss-rush game. Bon appétit!

With an interesting story, a handful of tough new bosses, and a few secrets to find, Cuphead: The Delicious Last Course exceeds expectations. The charming visuals, sound effects, and music build on the unique art style of the base game while still standing out with fun, albeit sometimes frustrating, encounters. The story conveys a new and dangerous adventure for Cuphead and Mugman who are joined by the sweet but formidable Ms. Chalice.

The Delicious Last Course is the perfect DLC for Cuphead – successfully building on the best aspects of the main game whilst also providing a whole new character with their own abilities to offer a fresh spin on things. Combine all of this with a bargain price and you have an absolutely essential purchase. Just don't think about running a swear jar or you may find yourself going bankrupt before the credits roll.

Cuphead originally cost $20 and contained nearly 30 levels of boss fights and platforming mayhem. The Delicious Last Course costs $8 and has a dozen levels, a new playable character with a notably different move set, and more armor items from Porkrind. All fans of the original should not hesitate to drop those $8 for The Delicious Last Course.

In 2018, Studio MDHR first revealed the DLC for Cuphead, cleverly named ‘The Delicious Last Course’. Fans have waited years for new content for the much-celebrated platformer but is this expansion a treat or did it need more time in the oven? Find out in this Rapid Review.
