Insomniac Games' totally dumb action game is secretly quite intelligent.
Sounds just like my type of game.
Given all the delays, this is now my most anticipated remaining 2014 game, besides Shadows of Mordor.
I wish I could say the same. Looks like a beautiful game with a great story and humor, but I just never liked platformers to a great extent. I find them very difficult for me to play and trying to shoot and hit a little landing spot takes a lot of the fun away for me. I had the same problem with some of the levels in I:SS, espec the lava level with jumping from platform to platform, dodging, and shooting at the same time... guess I am just not wired for it (or I am too old).
I hope the "disagrees" about about the "I am too old" statement :)
I'm not *old but older than most here, I was just a young kid when Atari released and I've been gaming every since. I don’t think it has anything to do with age, people tend to be good at the game types they really "feel"= attracted to the gameplay and thus play alot. SSO looks like a blast and its the type of game I know I'll really enjoy playing while laughing with friends.
Sunset overdrive looks like a game that you would see come out on the original Xbox..and that is not a bad thing. I always remember the original Xbox having a really varied assortment of different genres that I didnt see on PS2 or GC.
No. You generally saw arcade minded games like this one. What you didn't see were things like JRPGs.
although they were not many JRPG, the original box did have great variety. However, what really made it stand out was XboxLive with Halo 2, Mech Assault and Crimson Tide
Can you read? Thats exactly what he said godmars.
*that I didn't know about on PS2 or GC because I didn't play them. Come on, man. The PS2 had the largest variety of genres by a long shot. Yes, there were some unique and fun games on the Xbox, like Blood Wake (One of my personal favorites), but be realistic.
They both had variety. Variety and honesty was ample in the community and industry at the time. Now it is greed and trickery that predominates.
Original Xbox, had a TON of creative and fun games.
Would of loved to have played this on Ps4. Looks so much fun.
Stop hyping games IGN!By the way where's your destiny review!?
It's supposedly coming out today.
stop reading every destiny and now sunset stories and they will stop writing them , they write what gets clicks
The problem is that hype is killing the industry. There are games out there with much less hype that deserve much better sales. The press is choosing the games we play in a subconscious way. And you're right, journalism nowadays it's all about the green.
@Nathan170 don't just blame the media its our fault as well , if these games weren't our primary interest they wouldn't get the coverage . clicks are being tracked long before it gets to the preview review stage . we see the eefect not the cause , money is being put in much earlier than we think and the result is what we see before game release .
Take it from me, it's 4.5/10
Can't wait for this game. MS played their cards right by spreading and releasing Forza Horizon 2 in Sep, Sunset Overdrive in Oct, and Halo MCC in Nov with the Halo 5 beta in December. All three games have potential to be game of the month for their respective month. Well played MS.
this is correct!
Sunset is not at the right time. A week before COD, 2 weeks before Halo, AC Unity and 3 weeks before GTA V,Dragon Age and Far Cry 4. It should have been released now before Forza to do far better than it will be at its current release date.
I don't think it's a secret how intelligent the game is. The writing is meant to mock the current state of the industry and how we perceive games. They even brought in a Deadpool writer (Gerry Duggan) to punch up the script. It's mindless fun with mindful dialogue. I can't freakin' wait.
I totally forgot about this game. Which is crazy because this is the type of game I would like to play. I don't even think I've ever seen any advertisement on tv for this game which is crazy cause it just more than a month a way and is a big exclusive for Xbone. Wish I could play this on PS4.
Nice been following this closely liked everything i have seen shaping up great.
Looks like another stellar AAA title to follow up the exquisitely crafted Forza Horizons 2. Xbox has the best fall lineup hands down.
But it runs at 900p! Can't be good!
Lol....lil sarcasm never hurts, loosen up.
I thought there would be more comments lol Where's all the arguing, all of the "you're shit, no you're shit" comments? Probably because it isn't controversial news yay people can be happy now!!
your shit! just kidding of course ;)
Microsoft is getting it done and making sure gamers get a polished game thats worth the money. Halo master collection top notch, forza horizon looks top notch so far, Sunset Overdrive looks too to be top notch. Microsoft x box one is looking like the best place to play games.
Dont hype to much the game! I have already play it and its nothing out of this world. The mission that ive done was just kill the monsters with diferent weapons that you choose like other insmniac games. The monster keep coming over and over. You can slide like in infamous on the tracks. You also have a bat to hit the monsters and you can launch to the floor the soda and the monsters stop and suck the soda
This game is just awesome visuals, gameplay,fun factor are top notch. Cant wait.
This game looks generic as fck
insomniac is back :D
