These Xbox One games are pretty average, but will be well worth a purchase once they hit the bargain bins. Next to each game is its Metacritic score, for those who care about such things.
he or she used a playstation video lol
I don't know why, but I have a feeling that Sunset Overdrive is going to be this game that Xbox Gamers feels it's below average because they used to make exclusive games for PlayStation. I'm not saying it's going to be below average, but all the Xbox fanboys kept saying that Resistance sucks and that it was mediocre and the same thing with the Ratchet and Clanks and the Spyros when it was owned by Sony. They're not going to change their story because they'll look like complete hypocrites; because Sunset Overdrive is Resistance (Aliens and Boss battles with guns) mixed in with Ratchet and Clank Gameplay Mechanix and Bizarre Weaponry and Cartoony look with a pinch of rebel attitude.
I don't see one bit of resemblance between Resistance and Sunset Overdrive. You're using this weird circumstantial evidence to prove a non point.
You are the onev who sounds like a fanboy troll. Who the F are you to tell us if we like the game. You made one correct point, resistance sucked.
Sunset Overdrive fits the Xbox core demographic pretty well. Dead Rising 3 sold well on X1 (1.4 Million units in first 6 months) Titanfall sold well on X1 (Rumored to be 2 Million units in 4 months) Jet Set Radio was an OG Xbox title Sunset Overdrive takes parkour elements(Titanfall) and mixes them with wacky grinding in this wacky artsy world(Jet Set Radio) filled with multiple creatures that are trying to kill you and tons of cool weapons(Dead Rising)to slay them with. I don't know how you think Resistence is like Sunset Overdrive. Only thing that bares any resemblance is the Mutant designs. But like I said...Titanfall(Parkour/Fast paced) meets Dead Rising(Mass units/Wacky Weapons) meets Jet Set Radio(Grinding/City Design)...and you get Sunset Overdrive. Bare in mind I'm not saying that Insomniac is ripping off these games, I'm saying that this game FITS the demographic and will sell well with MS marketing behind it and a console bundle.
"I'm not saying it's going to be below average, but all the Xbox fanboys kept saying that Resistance sucks and that it was mediocre and the same thing with the Ratchet and Clanks and the Spyros when it was owned by Sony." Well..resistance DID suck..and spryo is great if you were 8 years old at the time..Rachet and clank...well..I liked those games anyway. SSO is different from those games, for all the right reasons. Its multiplayer centric nature for a start. And for some not so obvious reasons, like its colour pallette and art style. More of that is needed on XB1. "They're not going to change their story because they'll look like complete hypocrites" I dont think they are going to care what N4G thinks of them while they are having fun on SSO...Do you? honestly? Eating your own words never tasted so good if that be the case.
so far the previews for sunset are better than expected.
Wow Ultimate That was some of the most ridiculous stuff I've ever read.
Way to generalize everyone into a category. Not everyone feels that way. Just a few loud (and mostly annoying) minority online.
I agree sunset overdrive looks average at best. Looks extremely repetitive.
Lmao...what are you talking about? SO is going to be great. Stop trying to downplay it dude.
Man..I think a special kind of repellent is needed for fanboy comment like that. Don't hate on a game because you can't play it.
This is the dumbest article in in recent days. About 70% of the games in the article are Multi-Plats... smh...People will ride the Xbox hate train for they're 15minutes of fame...
Okay we get it you want nothing to do with a platform you end up fucking advertising anyways, N4G. Let the obvious truth sink in, War Whales, you are free advertisement drones for every platform you "rise against".
Rise Against is my favorite band
Kudos to you. :) EDIT: Yeah I came off as an ass in my post, but really when you vocally dismiss a product at the end of the day you are a free advertisement.
Mediocre platform + mediocre games. The only people who buy Xbox are those who are buying out of some misguided loyalty...and Halo fanbois. Everyone else buys a PS4 or games on PC.
And you are here once more trolling shamelessly. Smh.
Not me, I have an Xbox One and PC. I will pick up a PS4 eventually but just bought an Oculus Rift so I need to hold off for a while. People buy what THEY like, not what you want them to like.
my god that is an awful article... their justifications are shocking
Resistance sucked? Okay, the ones saying it sucked probably sucked at playing it. But anyway Ryse to me is a pretty good game, hell I even enjoyed playing Max: Curse of Brotherhood.
I personally loved Ryse, and Max.
To see MAX on this list is BS.Superb little gem.
So basically like many games this gen so far. It's not just on Xbox, but on all platforms since this new gen started. This is what happens when devs making games for hardware that isn't finalized until the last minute.
The Xbox One is falling further and further behind in sales, not all games are meeting 1080p like the competitor and the Xbox is becoming some what of a running joke on the internet. Which in turns means less publishers producing quality games because of the user base. I've owned every xbox and purchased them at launch and been very happy with them all. I even enjoy the kinect if you know how to use it. So should we all be worried about getting left in the dust or will you Microsoft make us proud to own your console ? I'm sure most of us want to stay as ONLY Xbox owners but your competitor is really making that hard. We need a killer app or OS improvements fast.
Good try, but try harder.
The multiplatform games listed here go from mediocre on Xbone to amazing on PS4 because they have extra pixels.
Max is actually pretty good. So is Xbox Fitness which isn't really a game. It's a fitness app. Try harder.
