We have done our fair share of reviews on the Overcooked series and its DLC options for the second game. We loved every second of this franchise and, truth be told, it put party games back on the map. Close after, we saw games such as Catastronauts, Moving Out, Tools Up and even the quirky Cannibal Cuisine followed suit. Ghost Town Games has now remade the experience of the original series, including the DLC, to blast Overcooked into the next generation. On top of the remastered and remade items, we also get a bit of extra content to plow through. With many chefs to choose from, we once again found ourselves hurling food to one another, hoping not to set the kitchen ablaze.

Truth be told, there’s no real point in going through the entire basics of the series anymore, as we have discussed all the mechanics and content in our previous reviews of both the base games, as well as the DLC packs for the second game. You can find our review of Overcooked and Overcooked 2 by clicking on their respective names here. We have also discussed The Lost Morsel, Surf ‘n’ Turf, Campfire Cook Off, and Night of the Hangry Horde. All were amusing, only with The Lost Morsel feeling a bit shy of content compared to all the rest. Nonetheless, these will give you a very good picture of what to expect from this Team17 published franchise.

Even though the iconic gameplay remains the same as in the past, the added content does spice things up a tiny bit. If you have only played the base games, there is a lot of DLC to explore that has been embedded in this combo pack of the two games. The other significant changes are proper online support for the levels of the first game and the fact that everything has been graphically enhanced to look crisper than ever. Sure, the comical style of everything makes it easier to look nice, but everything runs smoothly, the backdrops have been enhanced and actually have a bit more clutter and sights to see. It’s basically many smaller changes that pile up to become a big change for this All You Can Eat version.

Also, those who couldn’t get enough of the original roster of chefs will find many new additions to the selection menu, as well as different colorations. We do find it regrettable that you still have to select your chef in the main menu and cannot just swap in-between levels. That’s basically the only remark we can make about this entire revamped Overcooked! experience.

Conclusion

While Overcooked! All You Can Eat is pretty much the best the franchise currently has to offer, it doesn’t bring that much new content to the table for those who have already completed the original two games and their respective DLC. Nonetheless, if you’re new to the franchise, or haven’t had the chance to explore the games to their fullest, this bundle edition of all games and DLC is nearly perfect in every way, with improved visuals, minor tweaks to the gameplay, more chefs and proper online support.
