Though fairly safe in many respects, the inclusion of one simple mechanic has completely reinvented the way that you play Overcooked. A single stroke of genius, coupled with improved level design and the always endearing audio/visual style guarantees that Overcooked 2 will be in high circulation through any social events to come.

Overcooked 2 takes the strong foundation of the original game and improves in the right areas. It's still fun, chaotic, and a blast to play with friends. The gameplay mechanics are simple and smooth. There are plenty of recipes, chefs, and kitchens in Overcooked 2 to keep you entertained for months on end. I would definitely recommend playing with friends. This is one game you do not want to send back to the kitchen.

When I first saw Overcooked 2, I knew there was something special about the game. The fact that Nintendo chose what was a little-known, independently developed game to showcase at E3 this year alongside flagship franchises such as Super Smash Bros. Ultimate demonstrated their faith in the game. And that faith was not misplaced. New features such as the throwing mechanic, online multiplayer and improved production values sweeten what is already one of the best multiplayer experiences on the console. And although there are some negative points (such as the lack of native voice chat during online play), these are minor gripes when compared to the mayhem and pure, unadulterated fun that local multiplayer sessions offer. If you have three friends and are looking for some of the most fun on the Nintendo Switch, you’d be hard pressed to pass on Overcooked 2.

Overcooked 2 vs Overcooked is like comparing an executive chef to their sous chef – they are both amazing at what they do but the executive is clearly more advanced and built on experience. As such, Overcooked 2 has taken on board all of the feedback from the original game and improved on every aspect to the point where going back to the amazing Overcooked feels like a downgrade! There are tonnes of fun and frustration to be had in solo-play, couch co-op, and even online multiplayer modes – although it’s a much better experience to play with friends or people you know the majority of the time.

Words can't do the frantic nature of Overcooked 2 justice, and that's the beauty of it. There's never been a session where we haven't had a blast playing, even when we're butting heads against tough levels that we fail several times in a row; there's not many games we can say that about. With the option of both local and online co-op, Overcooked 2 becomes one of the the best party games available.

A game that will have you swearing at your grandma, and threatening violence upon your closest friends after half an hour, Overcooked 2 is one of the best party games that you can get your hands on, and it's easily the most fun I've had with a multiplayer game in years. The single player can sometimes get a bit overwhelming (please don't play this if you have anxiety!) but with 4 people playing side by side or, for the first time, over the internet, it's an excellent title that will have you in stitches of laughter while cursing your head off. A worthy purchase, even if you've played the original to death.

With viable options to play alone, with friends locally, or with people online this version of Overcooked is ripe with opportunities for fun. Better yet, the feeling of the experience and the challenge in each case tends to be wildly different, even when replaying the same levels. While the result may still be a bit too overwhelming for people looking to games more to de-stress rather than inspire even more, it can be a ton of chaotic fun if you’re willing to embrace the challenge.

Overcooked 2 serves up a great balance of hilarious chaos and strategy alongside meaningful improvements over its predecessor.

Its obvious caricatures aside, Overcooked 2 manages, above all else, to feel like working an actual busy restaurant job – you slave away for what feels like an eternity of non-stop, fast-paced work, certain you're always miles behind where you should be, but then you count the tips at the end of the night and think “You know what? Not too bad.” In that respect and many others, Overcooked 2 is a delightful follow-up where each consecutive levels feels either completely satisfying or enticingly challenging.

The fast-paced action, the crazy kitchens that change as you go, the new recipes that have you dashing all over the place for the right ingredients, being able to throw said ingredients to maximize the short windows you have for completing each order, playing at home or on the go, and being able to take things online… it all comes together to give us one of the console's must-have party games.

Playing Overcooked 2, it's evident that Ghost Games understood what worked and what didn't in the original. New mechanics feel like an evolution of core gameplay rather than the likes of a DLC pack that adds a couple new chefs or kitchens. Even new recipes like different varieties of sushi feel fun and fresh, with different components that need to be left raw or cooked.

As I said in my review of the first game, “…be aware that you won’t find nearly as much fun to be had unless you bring together a group who will play in your living room; or kitchen; I’m not one to judge.” This time around though, you can hop into other people’s living rooms through the wonders of the internet.

A fantastic co-op game, Overcooked 2 is an easy recommendation for those looking for a game to play with friends and family. The pacing, mechanics that encourage cooperative behaviour, the addition of a much-needed arcade mode, and accessibility all make for a decidedly fun game. The lack of variety in the arcade and versus' mode stages is a bit disappointing, as is how much of the game's identity is owed to what came before it, but these are only minor misgivings in the face of what Overcooked 2 does well.

Overcooked 2 is more of a second helping than a brand new concoction, but that's not to be sniffed at. It features more dynamic levels, with better scope, a wide array of new restaurant themes, recipes and chef costumes, not to mention another very meaty story mode. The real evolution, however, comes in simply addressing the biggest failing of the original - its lack of online multiplayer. This addition expands things significantly in terms of its longevity, allowing friends and strangers to gather when a local session isn't on the cards. Moreover, it enables lone cooks to experience the true core experience, specifically, the unique brand of chaos that comes with running a kitchen co-operatively. Overcooked 2 is a fantastic combination of excellent music and vibrant visuals, with gameplay that is as addictive as it is dizzying. While it's not a huge leap beyond the original menu, it brings plenty to the table.

Overcooked 2 is everything you loved from the original but with the heat turned up a centigrade or 100. Mad, manic and utterly hilarious, this is one co-op game to beat.

A tasty dish, Overcooked 2 adds extra spice to the first game's stupidly enjoyable co-op shenanigans, with online multiplayer finally in the mix and the ability to throw food around making for even more gastronomic madness. Food fiiiiight!

A delightful refinement of the first game. Overcooked doesn't add much to the mix, but it proves that when something work, why change it?

Overcooked 2 is more of the same, if not even more chaotic, and we wouldn’t have it any other way.

Is Overcooked 2! worth the purchase? I would say it is, for sure. The story and writing may be a bit over-the-top and punny for my liking, but there are certainly people out there that will have some fun with it. So whether you're a cook for the ages or a master of the macaroni and cheese, Overcooked 2! is certainly worth picking up.

The hectic co-op cooking game is back for another heaping serving with Overcooked 2. The sequel adds even more crazy mechanics and hazards to overcome, the ability to throw your food without your mom berating you, and the option to play online with other folks to boot. Controls still can be finicky at times and lag can be an issue online as well. Overall, though, Overcooked 2 is one gaming dish you'll want to savor if you love charming co-op hijinks with a gourmet twist.

Overcooked 2 doesn’t reinvent itself but the new additions are welcomed and definitely enhance a game that already had a good recipe. I’m glad that they didn’t mess with this and have kept this familiar feel. Overcooked 2 allows you to continue with all the fun from the first game with some great new levels.

Overcooked! 2 then, whilst not a revolutionary leap from the first is still as madcap and downright ridiculous as its predecessor and then some. It’s still hilarious to play with friends and adds enough fresh elements and ideas to keep ardent fans delighted. It’s still hard as nails in some parts but the gentle easing in of new mechanics ensures you’re always ready for what’s to come. It’s now replaced Overcooked! on the top of our multiplayer game night lists, and if that isn’t high praise I don’t know what is.

Overcooked 2 much like its predecessor is a fun and chaotic experience that truly excels when played with a group. While you might argue this is just more of the same, there are enough tweaks and changes to the formula that help keep things fresh for returning players. A hard recommendation if you’re looking to operate your own kitchen, but gather some friends and you’ll be hard pressed finding a more exciting co-operative time on Switch.

Overcooked 2 is still one of the best local co-op experiences to make your friends hate you. The sequel plays it safe, though, with few overall improvements apart from an online mode and a throwing mechanic. Add to that the inconsistent difficulty, which ranges from ridiculously easy to punishingly tough, and you have a game that is familiar but doesn't push the envelope as much as you may have hoped for a sequel.

Overcooked 2 is just about the perfect couch co-op game. Have a partner or even a few friends to play with and you'll find relationships destroyed or strengthened in a matter of minutes. Play the game on your own, however, and the multi-tasking, meal-making coordination required for later levels can start to make it feel like a bit of a slog. So do yourself a favour and ensure you have a partner when playing Overcooked! 2 and you'll soon be having the time of your life, Gordon Ramsay-ing it up in no time.

All-in-all, a second portion of Overcooked‘s co-op insanity was exactly what I was looking for. As they say though, variety is the spice of life, and I think Overcooked 2 could have used just a bit more of that: variety. Still, the resulting sequel isn't bad by any means and will absolutely fill you up if you're looking for precisely more of what the original had to offer. If Ghost Town Games were to go back for a third romp in the kitchen though, I'd love to see a few new things seasoned in next time around.

Great game design wise and play ability wise with a cute story to go along with it. It has the right kind of balance of being both easy to play and challenging at the same time. It really makes you think. The sequel is great for those who want to get into the series and you don't need to have played the first to get into it. Overall a solid solid game.

Overcooked is the sort of game that inspires everyone to channel their inner Gordon Ramsay, and its chaotic sequel is no exception. It has notable improvements, from throwing and catching food to some ludicrous and creative levels.

Overcooked 2 is better than the first game, largely thanks to the addition of online multiplayer and the ability to throw ingredients, but it can still be improved.

Overcooked 2 is more like an expansion of the original game than a real sequel. It has a ton of new content and levels, but the gameplay remains barely intact, which means that the main pros and cons of its predecessor are still here. If you liked the original Overcooked, you will love this sequel; but if you don't, well, this game simply doesn't have anything new to make you fall in love with it.

Overcooked! 2 builds up on the original game and improves the overall art style while bringing a new online multiplayer component, thus improving the overall experience. This could have been done without scaling back the difficulty and challenge level of the game, which along with some new but rather unnecessary features make this sequel a mixed bag when it comes to the improvements over the original.

It's obvious how much rage-tinted joy can be conjured from out Ghost Town Games' quirky set-up of cooking up meals, together with a sprinkling of simulation-style managing of one's kitchen workspace.
