Overcooked! All You Can Eat is the ultimate definitive edition for Overcooked! Fans. Bringing together all of the Overcooked! titles with a ton of extra content will see fans reuniting in the online kitchens once again. Overcooked! All You Can Eat is available on the Playstation 5 and the Xbox Series S|X, both digitally and physically.

It Felt Like Hells Kitchen!

Believe it or not, I have never picked up an Overcooked! title. This is my first time in the virtual kitchen! I wonder how much havoc I will cause and if I will be able to keep my cool. Keep reading to find out how I get on.


If you are already an Overcooked! fan you can probably skip this part, however, if you are new like me then keep reading. In Overcooked! you are saving the lands one meal at a time. However, the kitchens you are in will put you in the hot seat. From simple recipes to ones that will be sending you running everywhere. Alongside the fact the kitchen will move, break and set you back more times than you think, you are in for one hell of a ride.

Switching The Game Mode Up

Within Overcooked! All You Can Eat you get both 1 and 2 along with Extra Trimmings. Both of the Overcooked! titles have the same gameplay, in which you are in a kitchen and you have to bring the ingredients together for a dish and get them served. However, in Overcooked! 2 you do have the ability to throw your food around the kitchen. Unfortunately, they haven’t backward developed this into the first instalment, however, it definitely keeps you on your toes when jumping between the two titles.

When it comes to the extras, we have the Extra Trimmings section of the game. These are extra levels to play whenever you like, although I found visiting them after I had played the others first to be the best option. They did feel a bit more challenging at the start, but that could just be me being new to this series. Not only are there new levels, but there are also new chefs and the game has been built on the Overcooked! 2 engine. This ensures more playability for multiplayer and has also optimised the game further.

On The Road Again! Early Days

As far as accessibility goes within Overcooked! All You Can Eat has colourblindness options, Dyslexic friendly text, and a scalable UI. Again this is great to see developers working hard to make gaming more accessible.

Graphics & Audio

As with most titles of this genre, you are greeted with bright and bold colours. With nothing but a fun and friendly atmosphere, you will feel at home in your kitchen until the orders start coming in. I played Overcooked! All You Can Eat on the Playstation 5, the graphics looked extremely smooth and it run like a dream. With no bugs or glitches to be seen. Although I wish there was, I would have something to blame my appalling gameplay on then. I must also state that it runs at 4k at 60fps and on the right monitor it looks stunning.

Stunning Kitchen Environments

When you are in the kitchen, you don’t really take notice of the audio. There is so much happening that you end up running around the kitchen with lettuce not knowing whether you are serving it or chopping it up. However, the soundtrack across Overcooked! All You Can Eat has a calming warm element to it within the menus and cut scenes. Then when you hit the kitchen it picks up and all of a sudden before you know it, the klaxons are sounding. It was at this point that the panic starts to set it.


Overcooked! All You Can Eat has so much content, after all, you are getting Overcooked 1 and 2 along with all the additional content for them. On top of this, you have the Extra Trimmings as well. There is an absolute heap of gameplay available for one run-through. However, I do not feel that this is a once-and-done title due to its multiplayer element. It is a title that can be picked up when your gamer group needs to have a laugh and wind down. Not only that, But I imagine couch co-op is hilarious. Nothing better than bickering with your partner about virtual spilled soup!

Kitchen In The Sky!

Final Thoughts

Overcooked! All You Can Eat has so much to offer to gamers. It’s the game to pick up when you want some solo gaming, it’s the game to pick up with friends and family. It is the game for literally any occasion. The amount of fun and laughter this game brings is unreal. Whether you are working as a team or fumbling with your frying pan. Keeping calm is the only way you are going to get your three stars. From picking up, to playing what Overcooked! All You Can Eat has to offer, I thoroughly enjoyed every bit. I am not going to lie, at times it was extremely stressful. However, this is a game that is staying installed and I will be looking to the rest of the team for some online multiplayer kitchen chaos. I award Overcooked! All You Can Eat a Thumb Culture Platinum Award.
