During the summer we were able to enjoy perhaps one of the best co-op titles of 2016, namely Overcooked. We loved the visuals, the simple mechanics, the wacky plot, and above all, the multiplayer madness that the game brought with it. A few months after defeating the ‘Ever Peckish’, the giant meatball monster that plagued the Onion Kingdom, we get treated to a DLC for this otherwise superb title. We were wondering what wacky situations would await in this short new adventure.

Overcooked The Lost Morsel 1

While the game offers a new map, it doesn’t come with a story, which is actually quite sad. The base game offered an amusing plot which involved a giant meatball monster, time travel and short but wacky dialogues involving the Onion Kingdom. This time we’ll have to make do with a new map with only six stages on it, without any story value whatsoever. All of this feels like a missed opportunity in our book.

Graphically, safe for the new map and some new funny looking characters, there are no significant changes compared to the original game. Soundtrack-wise there is a clear difference of quality, as you’ll have to manage with only one rather repetitive track, throughout the six levels this DLC brings. It’s sad to see that more attention was spent on the extra characters, mechanics of the stages, and a new vehicle (which does nothing) for the new map, instead of taking care of the story and sound portion.

Overcooked The Lost Morsel 2

Even though the above doesn’t sound all that positive, the content you’ll get is still rather topnotch for the asking price, even if it’s limited in length. You’ll have to plow through six new stages, in a jungle environment, nearly all with moving shelves and/or chopping blocks. While no new dishes are implemented in this DLC, you’ll have a hard enough time managing to create the ones you already know with the ‘moving level’ mechanics in play. You’ll unlock a few new characters as you progress through the levels, most being of the animal kind, with the exception of a robot. Other than a few multiplayer maps this is pretty much the content you’ll get, for a fair price.


Gameplay-wise Overcooked – The Lost Morsel doesn’t bring that much extra content to the table, and the lack of an extensive soundtrack and the absence of a storyline feels like a missed opportunity, it still proves to be a delight to play through the levels, unlocking characters as you go. If you were a fan of the base game, and you’re looking to expand your multiplayer maps, and the overall experience, this DLC will not disappoint, even if the quality took a few blows.
