While it's not nearly as enjoyable as a solo outing, Overcooked is one of the best party games we've played in years. Just make sure you bring some friends or family along for the ride.

Ghost Town Games avoids the flavorless death known as repetition, and doesn't overcook the game's premise.

A clever game that taps into your inner perfectionist, Overcooked is a delicious treat that plays great and is low on carbs.

Overcooked is a fun and colorful game that shouldn’t be overlooked if you have some friends to join you in the adventure. With some of the best level design of any indie game, Overcooked will constantly batter you with new challenges. However, with a lack of any online functionality that clearly handicaps solo players, this dish comes out lukewarm.

Overcooked's colorful visuals, catchy music, and the simple premise is incredibly fun. It's a great party game that will offer some great fun while still providing a nice challenge to get three stars on all the stages. Since the game uses a three-star ranking system, there's a decent amount of replay value as you attempt to get a higher score each time. There are also nine different competive multiaplyer levels to play with your friends.

A fun but frustrating cooking experience, Overcooked is a fantastic couch co-op party game that will put your friendships to the test. Expect to be shouting and swearing at one another a lot; it gets pretty damn hot in Overcooked's kitchen. If you can't stand the heat, get out! Otherwise, bon appetit.

What it boils down to is that if you have two or more controllers and the appropriate amount of friends to play with, then you should check out Overcooked, but if you’re looking to dine alone, then you had best move on.

Overcooked belongs in the hall of fame of couch co-op with its delicious blend of tense gameplay and imaginative level design.

You might pull your hair out trying to complete the story mode, but you'll have a blast doing it.

Not mushroom for error and the steaks are high in this recipe for multiplayer fun.

There isn’t much to write about this, it’s a solid game that’s really fun as a co-op game for a games night/party and a nice family game after the Sunday roast. Video options weren’t key for me, especially if it’s not demanding on the system. But, the caveat to the high score is if it were have sold itself purely as a single player game and at the same RRP, then it might have the issue of being undercooked.

Like all the best party games, its strength lies in its simplicity, its clever design, and the fact that it's just so much darn fun to play. Overcooked is one of those rare gems that possesses the ability to endlessly generate comedy moments and is the perfect choice for those lengthy multiplayer sessions, though probably best avoided if Gordon Ramsay is due a visit.

Overcooked capitalizes on its simple premise and easy controls to offer up a surprisingly challenging and addicting game. With a notable absence of couch co-op games these days for friends, this fills the hole perfectly.

Head Chef or Sous Chef? You decide in this fun co-op kitchen game where you must keep up with orders and not let the kitchen burn down!

Overcooked is delightful and appropriate for players of all ages. The core mechanics are solid, the cooperative gameplay is enjoyable, and it's a great game from start to finish. Perhaps the only real complaint one can level against it is that the single-player gameplay isn't as enjoyable as the multiplayer. It's simple enough that even people who don't usually play games can pick them up in a heartbeat, making it a great title for families to play together. Overcooked is a charming experience and a fantastic purchase for anyone looking for cooperative local games on the PC.

The production values, coupled with the genuinely entertaining multiplayer, help to make this one of the better “casual” games you’ll play this year.

i really loved playing the game for my Overcooked review. It’s a genuinely great couch-coop game! Don’t try it alone however as you won’t get very far because its difficulty is balanced for more than one person.
