Overcooked! 2 is a cooperative cooking simulation game developed by Ghost Town Games and published by Team17. The sequel to Overcooked!, it was released for the Nintendo Switch in August 2018.

Gameplay

In Overcooked! 2, teams of up to four players cooperatively prepare and cook orders in absurd restaurants. Players chop and cook ingredients, combine them on plates, and serve dishes via a conveyor belt. Between coordinating short orders and bumping into each other's characters, the game tends to overwhelm. The sequel builds atop the original game, with new interactive levels, restaurant themes, chef costumes, and recipes. Some levels have moving floors and other obstacles that complicate the cooking process, including portals, moving walkways, and impassable fires. Other levels transition between settings and recipes, such as one that begins with preparing salads in a hot air balloon and ends crashlanded in a sushi kitchen. The sequel introduces ingredient tossing, such that players can throw items to another chef or pot from far away, and online multiplayer, in which teams can connect either across a local wireless network or through online matchmaking.

Reception

Overcooked! 2 received "generally favorable" reviews on Metacritic holding a metascore of 81/100 on Nintendo Switch based on 38 critic reviews.[1] On whatoplay.com, it receives an aggregate score (playscore) of 8.59 out of 10.[2]
