Summary

I always thought Overcooked 2 was the pinnacle of cuisine multiplayer gaming I was wrong. For Overcooked All You Can Eat is the defacto culinary madness simulator that everyone needs! It’s a collection of both games, all DLC and a sprinkle of little extras. It’s such a complete little package that is just an absolute blast to play. The age-old issue of single-player is boring and stressful is still there but you have full online co-op and versus here that it’s never been easier to chef up and make some food! Overall for me, this is the best multiplayer on Playstation 5 and I can’t see that changing anytime soon.

Gaming since the Atari 2600, I enjoy the weirdness in games counting Densha De Go and RC De Go as my favourite titles of all time. I prefer gaming of old where buying games from a shop was a thing, Being social in person was a thing. Join me as I attempt to adapt to this new digital age!
