Overcooked presents itself with very few issues and a good amount of fun. Even though the solo gameplay is a lesser experience compared to the frantic 4 player co-op which spawns both hilarious and frustrating moments.

A very solid and fun multiplayer experience. It works in singleplayer but really shines in multiplayer. The level design and style make it stand out. If only cooking were this fun in real life.

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.

Simply put, Overcooked is a great game on any platform, and one with a couple glaring issues that need to be patched on the Switch. Still, there are few games on Switch that are this well-suited to co-op play, so at $20, it’s worth the price of admission if you’ve got the friends to bring along for the ride.

Value Review: Overcooked (Switch) video thumbnail
Jun 20, 2017

Overcooked wants to show you the wacky fun of cooking with friends, but I should have guessed by the time it sent us to hell’s literal kitchen that we as a culture need to reassess exactly what that fun looks like.

The ease of access doesn’t necessarily translate into ease of play; while the controls are simple, they aren’t always super-intuitive. I can’t even begin to describe how many times I messed up a dish or flubbed my timing due to the game not doing what I thought it would do.

This is a bold, distinct and very charming package.

What Team 17 offers is really a simple but absolutely fun title, rich in lots of content. And, although the title does not feature an online multiplayer, this is not so relevant, indeed, the ability to play it alone or in LAN is enough to make it a worthy note. There will be absolutely no moments to get bored, every challenge is captivating and completely engaging!

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.

The game is very likeable, oozes with humor and apart from slightly higher difficulty, isn’t frustrating. Still, controllers and friends are mandatory. It takes a lot to make a stew and Overcooked’s is more than satisfying.

Aside from from the local-only consideration and some inconsistencies with the scoring criteria and stage layouts, man, what a game. Overcooked is the best co-op experience I've had in recent memory, and despite going back through to fully clear every level, I wish there were more. Don't overlook it.

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.

I had an absolute blast playing through the campaign mode. I would have liked if there was a proper/easier solo campaign mode, but the main campaign can be done solo with just you controlling two chefs. It is a fun little cooking, funny, quirky and certainly original, and I greatly enjoyed my time with the game to write my Overcooked review. Are you ready to battle it out in the kitchen?

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

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.
