Slide until you die in Xbox One's crazy Sunset Overdrive

Sunset Overdrive is a goofy explosion of vivid colors and anything-goes attitude, though it's not without shape. The outline resembles Jet Set Radio, with weapons on loan from Ratchet and Clank, and a dash of Fable's fuck-you to dying. We all know it's a video game, but listen - Sunset Overdrive is conspicuously a video game.

The story is too old to be commented.

looks a redskind R&C with violence, unfortunately gamers are not easily impressed.

Bundi1388d ago (Edited 1388d ago )

Shocked that you don't like it...not. Is this your new Titanfall? If so please just say yes and we will mentally copy/paste your comments on that game in all Sunset Overdrive articles, no need for you to do so.

Also you have not played R&C if you think this game is anything like it past the goofy guns and colourful pallet.

NewMonday1388d ago

remember the original Fuse trailer was impressive and got gamers hyped, but in the end it turned out to be a mediocre game. that is why I find it hard to be impressed by an Insomniac game.

Darkfist1387d ago

Shocked that you like it, when you didnt like infamous, you know the one which has glides on wires, use cars as jump pads, got a electric amp, the things that according to you are boring.

Bundi1387d ago

Show me ONE instance where I said ANYTHING about not liking inFAMOUS SS or thinking it was boring Dark Fist. Just ONE and Ill leave the site forever!

I liked inFAMOUS 1 and 2, I have no reason to think SS is boring since I have not played it.

@NewMonday to be fair to Bundi he wasn't trolling those articles, he was just stating what he has gathered from reviews, which is the same impression some of them left me.
I got the game today though, not played yet but will judge it myself.

Bundi1387d ago (Edited 1387d ago )

@Newmonday, nice try but in none of those did I say it was boring or that I didn't like it.
1. I was not impressed by the SALES...does that mean I don't like it? No.
2. I concluded from THAT particular review that the game was pretty but gameplay was lacking. Did that prove that I disliked "glides on wires, use cars as jump pads, got a electric amp"? Not even close.
3. There was an article asking if inFAMOUS was the best game in its genre. I was answering that question with based on that review. Edit: Here is that article.
Not once did I ever say I don't like it or that I find it boring because of any of those things mentioned by dark fist.

Colour me impressed by this game. Insomaniac made some good games fuse wasn't one of them, lesson learned I hope they used their experience to turn Sunset in a awesome game. Hype for this game is in overdrive, too much overdrive might not be good as people might turn into monsters ending up in giant chaos. Seriously watch a sunset relax no need to overhype the game as some gamers might be 'easily impressed'.

Darkfist1387d ago

im already impressed since this is how fuse shouldv been, i just hope it has a good single player experience.

christocolus1387d ago

Its definitly going to be a day one purchase for one.

@new monday ok everyone gets that you hate xbox one so get off your soapbox and give some constructive answers for once. Maybe something to why you don't like the game rather than being a common nuisance. I personally think the game is coming along nicely.

NewMonday1387d ago

it's a more casual R&C with violence, don't see any depth to the experience, and the track record of Insomniac is underwhelming.

Fishy Fingers1387d ago (Edited 1387d ago )

Keep reiterating the same trash. Eventually you might convince someone other than yourself.

Game looks great fun and possibly the best thing to come out of insomniac in years.

Clown_Syndr0me1387d ago

You can gather that from the first gameplay video? Wow you must have supernatural abilities.

Sounds like your a little jealous to be honest, no shame in that unless youre in denial.

Why visit Xbox posts if you have no interest in them?

LightDiego1387d ago

Everybody is talking about this game, what a wonderful surprise.
GOTY anyone?

Rute1387d ago

The game looks like good fun in the style of Ratchet & Clank but... GOTY? I very much doubt it. That would mean it would have to beat games such as Order 1886, Watch Dogs, and Tom Clancy's The Division, and I don't see that happening.

LackTrue4K1387d ago (Edited 1387d ago )

Lol...GOTY?!? All we have seen is hand full of videos, "that's it"

Lol.....mabe in XboxOne, it's not like they have many chooses. Hahaha

Tiqila1387d ago

I want this game to be multiplat :(

Immorals1387d ago

Just save up and buy an xb1.

That way, you don't miss out on anything! (presuming you own a ps4)

TheRealHeisenberg1387d ago

Nothing wrong with that. I'm impressed with what I see.

Tiqila1387d ago (Edited 1387d ago )

I will get an Xbox One anyway at some point, there are always exclusives you cant get on the other platforms. But until then I wish it wasn't exclusive.

just wanted to say the game looks awesome!

BlazeXXL1387d ago

Looks amazing! Glad Insomniac is back after that monstrosity called Fuse.

Here's hoping the final product will deliver!
