Overcooked was a huge hit in our household. When we finished our first D&D campaign, it became the de facto weekend time waster for our fearsome foursome. Over the course of several sessions, we managed to get all stars possible in the game and finish off all of the trophies on Playstation 4.
Now that Overcooked 2 is out and we’ve completed our first evening of frantically bumping into one another with raw food, what is the impression thus far?
Overall, after going through the first two worlds, Overcooked 2 is a blast. It seems easier than the first, but it also looks like they adjusted scoring and speed so it is a faster game overall.
The story this time involves the un-bread recently risen from the dead and their impending overrun of the Onion Kingdom. It is adorable, especially with Kevin, the king’s right-hand dog.
There are some concerns though. Given the increase in speed, most every level thus far has involved multiple steps. That’s a good thing but it can be a little maddening to understand the icons at time. When every single space has an item or a fellow player keeps throwing raw ingredients on the floor, Overcooked 2 quickly dips into visual overload.
Still, we had a blast in our first evening. Overcooked 2 is more of the same but more. That’s exactly what we wanted too! I look forward to playing more and writing a full review in the future.
