Cooperative games that require a lot of communication seem like they are played best in person. This was the thought issued by the original order-delivering chef game Overcooked. While this certainly makes a lot of sense, it can be deceptively hard to get the right people together to have a satisfying gaming session. Ghost Town Games looked to solve this by adding online play to their sequel, Overcooked 2, but also managed to squeeze some surprisingly game-changing new features that makes for a satisfying return to the Onion Kingdom.
Cooking games that require multitasking are amongst the most addictive out there. Often including keeping a million things in your brain at once, it’s easy to wish you had someone there to help out. This is the exact experience Overcooked: Gourmet Edition looks to offer. Sporting a hilariously wacky story and the most intense co-op gameplay around, this is one you’ll want to check out and make sure to bring a friend.
