Overcooked (Series) Review
Posted: 21 months ago, last updated 6 weeks ago.
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.

Overcooked! 2: Additional Content (Third Course)
Rated PEGI 3. The examiners report expands this rating with the following: 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.
This game has been rated ESRB EVERYONE.
Skill Rating: This game is enjoyed by 7-13 year-olds as it's a good match for their ability and maturity. 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."
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.
Overcooked! All You Can Eat has added an assist mode offers Increased Round Timer, Increased Score, Increased Recipe Time Limit as well as switching off recipe timeouts. It also adds dyslexia friendly text and colourblind friendly mode with symbols as well as colours to identify each chef. You can scale the user interface.
You can remap the PC controls but not on consoles.
The whole play area is usually in view and any event out of view is indicated with visual signs in the direction of noise/incident.
