Review: Overcooked 2 - Carnival of Chaos

September 16, 2019 1 min read

I'm not ready for Overcooked 2to come to an end. That's how I felt going into Carnival of Chaos  the third and final DLC in the game's season pass and that's how I felt after finishing it this weekend.

Overcookedhas become my favorite co-op experience of the generation. Some of you share that sentiment, and some of you never quite gelled with it the same way. I think we can relate on a base level, though we all have a go-to game that brings us closer to our friends, families, and loved ones.

For me, this is it. Nothing else can top it. Overcooked 2is exciting and stressful and satisfying, a formula that has continued to work its magic over the course of these expansion packs.

The game gives everyone ample opportunities to make a difference – both as an individual and as a team player. You can keep your idiosyncrasies, you can play like a total maniac, but you've also got to be in tune with each other. You can't stay silent. You can't do your own thing. To truly excel, your group needs to develop its own shorthand, and figuring mine out over the past year has been an absolute joy.
