Overcooked’s success is based primarily in its varied take on a simple concept. In every stage, the goal is to just make meals, but clever, nigh-endless obstacles and twists complicate things, forcing new strategies and tactics to be tested and used.
All in all, Overcooked is an absolute must-buy for anybody looking for a fantastic party game to play with friends. The wacky visuals and chaotic gameplay make it an ideal game for local co-op, and there’s plenty of content to work through. Although there are some disappointing launch issues with the framerate (reflected in our scoring), we still give this one a strong recommendation overall; it's a title that perfectly nails what makes local multiplayer games so fun.
If you’re looking for a great couch co-op game, you’d be hard-pressed to find another game like Overcooked. It’s got enough stress to keep the game interesting/challenging and playing with friends is a blast. The content may run dry after a few hours but there is still a lot of replayability in trying to beat your high scores on each level. Overcooked is definitely worth checking out on the Switch.
