Ranked in these QuestionsQuestion Ranking
Pro Requires close cooperation
There is a lot of task handoff and delegation so it's not just multiple players doing the same thing, but requires actual strategizing, communication, and cooperation.
Pro Lots of scenarios that require different strategies
Some levels in Overcooked are dynamic and greatly adapt the way you have to play in order to successfully complete a level. For example, at one point you and your partner(s) will be split up across multiple moving trucks and it requires quite some strategy to create meals together.
Pro Play happens on a single screen
Everything in Overcooked happens on a single screen, meaning you won't have to deal with annoying split-screen modes where you view is limited.
Con No online multiplayer
Local multiplayer only. Can't play with friends online.
