Overcooked is a cooperative game, that is best played on a couch, with at least another person. The objective of the game is to cook, and it's way more fun, than it sounds! The way it goes, is usually there are multiple ingredients, that need to be prepared, assembled, and then cooked, or fried, then delivered, and then you need to wash the dishes. Now, since you work in a restaurant, there are usually a lot of orders, and you need to do al these things at the same time very fast. Sometimes it gets pretty chaotic, but with good teamwork it can be managed. The whole thing is really fun, yet it can be rather hard, especially the boss at the end. We are still trying to beat that with my wife.
I cautiously recommend this game. Don't buy it if you don't have at least one other person who will commit to sharing your couch to play with you. This game feels like it should be a minigame in a larger collection of mini games, not a standalone game by itself. Levels are clearly designed for 3 or 4 players, not 1 or 2. Playing with 2 players turns out to be more frustrating than fun. Many of the levels are setup to be fun and challenging, but several other levels are also designed to be deliberately annoying. There's potential to have a good time here, but there is also plenty of potential to just get pissed off at your friends and family. My main complaints: Cooking surfaces moving around to block your movement and prevent you from reaching cooked food happens on far too many levels. Other levels have obstacles that will kill you. The controls feel a bit sloppy, making it difficult to grab the item you want and place it where you want. The game forces you to earn a set number of Star ratings on earlier levels in order to progress. This means that if you aren't doing well early on, the game will prevent you from continuing. The developer is basically saying, "If you suck we're not even going to let you continue playing." This setup would be okay if you cook play levels in an order of your choosing, but it doesn't make sense for a game that forces you to play every level in a set order.
Playing Local multiplayer is really fun and brings out a lot of laughs, but for people who can't just casually bring someone over to play might have problems. The singleplayer is fun, but difficult to get used to when switching between cooks. One time I was trying to cut something and while attempting to switch just moved the cutting cook... This does impact your score, and for someone like me who tries to get at least 2 stars for every level, is difficult. I recommend this game for people who can play with friends often. For people otherwise, I would wait for a major price reduction or when they make online (which I doubt). Besides all the weaknesses, Overcooked is a really addictive, colourful game to play and can lead to sometimes verbally abusing your friends.
The game is great but the fact that it lacks online multiplayer and only supports local co-op is really sad because i see alot of potential in this game and i really don't understand why they charge 15 dollars and don't even make it multiplayer.The gameplay itself is great and i really enjoyed it.It is unique and well made and I am glad i purchased it even if it lacks online multiplayer.Unfortunately i didn't have the option to play with friends because they couldn't so i had to stick to the singleplayer and i have to say it was pretty great.Awesome game,but there is place for improvement.
Got the game during a sale. Overcooked is a great Local Co-op game. Its challenges and variables within the game is sufficient for plenty of gametime. Really enjoyed the game!!!!.
