Overcooked! is here again, this time with more reasons for you and your friends to fight and scream at each other. Well, that's if you can't perfectly coordinate all your moves to satisfy your hungry customers!
All You Can Eat is a bundle of all existing content so far, so this new game looks like the perfect treat for the fans. But is it, really?
What Is Overcooked!?
Overcooked! is a saga of cooperative games where you and your friends must synchronize to prepare several dishes before the time runs out. In addition to a crazy plot and several bizarre characters, you can expect around 200 impractical workplaces for a chef, always giving you headaches and turning your cooking chores into a fun yet frustrating endeavor.
Up to 4 people can play together, not only in couch co-op modes but also online, with optional cross-platform multiplayer. Sadly, you can only play with people who also own All You Can Eat, as the online matchmaking won't show you people who own the original Overcooked! or Overcooked! 2.
The Whole Gang Is Here
Both Overcooked! games have been successful, and the same goes for all their DLC stages and extra characters. That's why All You Can Eat appears as the Overcooked! game to rule them all, featuring absolutely everything available so far. All chefs, all kitchens, both campaigns... EVERYTHING! For that reason, Overcooked! All You Can Eat really works as a party game, giving you infinite options to play with your family and friends.
Since it's nothing but a combination of 2 games, the gameplay mechanics are exactly the same, so anyone who has tried it at least once will find it easy to pick up and play.
Great For Newcomers, Not So Much For Owners of the First Two Games
As we mentioned before, this collection looks like the perfect gift for hardcore Overcooked! fans but, ironically, it's not. If you already own both games and all the DLC, there's no point in buying it all again as the new stuff (3 new chefs, some new levels and a new mode which allows you to skip levels if you find them too hard) is not worth the price tag. All that being said, there are some technical novelties like updated graphics and 4K support @ 60 fps plus several accessibility features, and online gameplay is always attractive if you have no one to play with.
Truth be told, Overcooked! All You Can Eat contains 2 amazing games, so we can't say it's a bad purchase. There's no one better than you to decide if you need this bundle in your library!
If you feel like helping the Onion King, Overcooked! All You Can Eat is now available on PC (Steam), Switch, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.
