Overcooked is a fun game with friends but can be extremely boring if you're playing alone. This game is more Undercooked than Overcooked
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.
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.
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.
I don’t think it’s a game for everyone, but if you’re looking for a fun filler game for two (or more), then you may want to give this a shot.
A charming couch co-op that's surprisingly challenging in later levels. Best played with friends.
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!
The production values, coupled with the genuinely entertaining multiplayer, help to make this one of the better “casual” games you’ll play this year.
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.
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.
Whether you're a long-time fan of strategy titles or someone looking to whet their appetite with something new, Overcooked may satisfy your cravings even if it is just for a short while.
With simple controls and an easy to understand premise, anyone can turn their hand to it with ease, then partake in some truly stressful yet fun multiplayer cooking action.
Overcooked is a fresh title with a curious concept, but the lack of multiplayer modes is a heavy burden on the overall experience.

Not mushroom for error and the steaks are high in this recipe for multiplayer fun.
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.
Overcooked is a great couch co-op game with fun gameplay and charming visuals. The game is best played with a group of friends and playing solo is extremely difficult. Lack of online multiplayer detracts slightly from the overall score. If you have the people to play with, I recommend picking this game up for a good party game.
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.

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!

Overcooked is a fun game that you can keep coming back to again and again. Couch co-op means you can play with a multitude of different people, giving you endless fun. The only part of this game I didn’t enjoy was when I was playing on my own. You definitely need to get a couple of friends over to enjoy the game fully. At £12.99/$16.99 this game is a steal and definitely worth your time with a few friends.
