ESH | Overcooked 2 Review

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.

ESH | The Escapists 2 Review

Ago­niz­ing over the per­fect plan, metic­u­lously prep­ping all the nec­es­sary com­po­nents and then hav­ing it all come apart due to an unseen cir­cum­stance. Escap­ing prison seems like it would be an endeavor that which I would fail mis­er­ably to exe­cute with the per­fec­tion it requires. If noth­ing else, The Escapists 2 has only proven this fact as I have spent plenty of time in soli­tary con­fine­ment for my failed schemes. Thank­fully, unlike real life, the con­se­quences of these failed jail­breaks are min­i­mal and with enough prac­tice, I was even­tu­ally able to spring myself from the joint. It’s this con­cept that makes The Escapists 2 the per­fect action puz­zle game for any­one with a lot of patience look­ing for a real challenge.
