Next Top Chef?
When I purchased this game during XBOX ONE’s Black Friday deals, I was reminded fondly of an Atari game called Pressure Cooker. My nostalgia factor took over, and I sat down to play this game. First off, the graphics are pretty great. The game has an old school feel with smooth, modern graphics. The music is catchy, though forgettable – but that’s not really what matters in a game like this.
This game is addictive, especially as a co-op game. It’s not enough to get one or two stars. I had to have them all, and each stage had a fair amount of difficulty. While not the hardest game on the shelf, some of the levels could prove to be pretty challenging depending on how well your team works together, or how many players you have.
The controls are simple enough, and when it comes time for Versus mode, there is a fair amount of challenge swapping between avatars to beat your opponent – unless of course, you have more players.
I found myself saying pretty often, “There’s no way you could do this with one player.” That being said, it really isn’t as fun with just one person. I’m not sure it’s meant to be played solo.
Overcooked: Final Cook Off
If you are looking for some good, competitive fun, this is the perfect game to pick up. It’s a great game to play with a couple of friends or family members, provided you work as a team. Of course, if cooperation isn’t your thing, you could find yourself screaming “CHOP THAT ONION” at someone you thought was your friend, but clearly doesn’t know his or her way around a kitchen.
Regardless, it’s a wonderful way to spend the afternoon, and with the added DLC, players can keep coming back to the kitchen for another round.
