Overcooked is one of the freshest couch co-op games I've ever played. It's a perfect blend of strategy and chaos, asking you and your teammates to think on your feet as its smart and strange levels do everything they possibly can to make sure you are shouting at each other. The Switch port has some framerate and rumble issues that keep it from matching the best versions available, but for local multiplayer fun it's hard to beat.

Overcooked and the Nintendo Switch are really a perfect match of frantic co-op cooking and a games console that's all about taking games on the go and sharing them with people. Right now it's difficult to wholeheartedly recommend this version though, given the widely reported frame rate issues. Here's hoping they can cook up a fix sooner rather than later.

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.

The core premise and style of Overcooked is a perfect fit for Nintendo's portable console, but its technical performance ruins the experience. There aren't many issues that couldn't be fixed with a patch, but as it stands, Overcooked offers an exciting cooperative experience which is quickly hampered by performance issues.
