OverviewOverview

Overcooked, Overcooked 2 and Overcooked! All You Can Eat are collaborative cooking games for up to 4 players. You must keep talking to other players to coordinate the various elements of the dishes. It starts simply enough but soon gets more complicated as you prepare food in ever more fantastical locations.

They all offer a similar experience, although the second game adds new places to cook and new recipes and the ability to throw food. Also, Overcooked 2 can be played online with friends and family. Overcooked! All You Can Eat is a delicious blend of Overcooked, Overcooked 2 and all DLC remastered and playable in 4K on PS5 and Xbox Series X.

You can play with 1 to 4 players in the same room or as a 4-player online game. Overcooked 2 and Overcooked! All You Can Eat supports online multiplayer but the original Overcooked doesn’t. There's a nice mode to reduce how many controllers you need, you can have two players use half a controller each. You can control the game with one hand using one half of the controller.

As well as the four player in the same place cooperative play and four player online cooperative play, you can mix and match. This means you can play with two people in one place on one system with two people in another place on their system.

Cross-Platform: Play between Xbox, PlayStation, Switch and PC.

Rated PEGI 3. The player needs to fend off a horde of zombified pieces of bread, which have red glowing eyes. In the intro cutscene, thunderclaps and lightning is present. This can be scary to some children.
 
Users Interact: The game enables players to interact and communicate with each other, so may expose players to language usually associated with older rated games.

Skill Rating

7+ year-olds usually have the required skill to enjoy this game. One family told us, "Overcooked is a great introduction to co-op gaming. On the easier levels, my 7-year-old loves taking charge of our strategy (who has what roles and how to coordinate our work). It's become progressively harder as she'd led our family team to figure out the best way to get our star."
