Sunset Overdrive has some excellent ideas, but its triumphs are sadly suffocated beneath ultra-repetitive mission design and unsatisfying enemy encounters.
Insomniac always start with hype and fans hope, but like Fuse they come short. Their games are full of style, empty of substance
Says the world's biggest sony troll..
Hey come on..how else are you supposed to get that many bubbles?
i think he pretty much quoted what the article said..
Just mark him down as trolling.
And that's why you have one bubble chukchukchuckles
Why is it that you're commenting on the lowest scored reviews of the game and not any of the others that got 9's and 10's?
Give me a second ;p
Didn't people do that on driveclub? It happens to every game people find the lowest or highest score and post a comment that fits their mindset about the game.
We all know they are all payed MS ass licker reviews. .
We all know that they are payed MS ass licker reviews. .
I have no idea what SO is like but I dont agree with that. I've liked all their games that I played except Fuse.
I didn't personally like the Resistance games, I only completed the first one, gave up on the other two halfway through competition, boring How I miss Spyro
Well that's your opinion and you're entitled to it but using this review as the basis for your point doesn't make it all that great. It should be noted that these guys also did a preview session of the game and from the commentary you could tell that the game just wasn't for them. They described Infamous: Second Son as completely dull and made comparisons with that game and stated that this was marginally better than that game. I wonder if you agree with them on that point?
Many others said the same, gameplay looks good no issues with it, but will the story keep me coming back for more? If they teamed up with Double Fine they could have made the perfect package, but insomniac are just bad with story.
@NewMonday how are insomniac bad with story? wich games that they developed since their founding had a bad story?
Best they could do was average, and SSO is the worst they did.
Come on now, this is one low score amongst lots of great scores. Does it really hurt that much to accept this game is good?
Never said it was bad, just not good enough to interest a wider range of gamers.
how is a 6 out of 10 low in the first place , back when reviews actually mattered and weren't shill pieces or paid for, a 6 was an above average game that you would get if you liked the genre, now days if its not an 8 or above its a low score. gamers today are f****** stupid imo. im not referring to you gribble but saying a 6 is low doesnt help
Mixed reviews so far.
Huh? Far from it. Game is averaging good to great reviews (8-9 some 10s)
83 meta score and only 3 less then positive outa 44 currently....very mixed...idiot
@u got owned What major titles don't get 8s and 9s? I do admit though I have seen quite a few 9.5s and such. I'll admit I'm a little Sony biased since trading in the Xbone during gamestops even swap trade period (trying to justify my decision :). Happy for Xbone though that it's apparently a good game. In a console war the gamer always wins.
Some good reviews some average reviews then some stupid ones like 10/10 , I think it's going to be hit and miss with anyone really but 10 is too much and I think 6 is border too low, I think it might be a 7.5 maybe 8 all up when everything is said and done.
lots of 8 and 9 's , this game oozes with the fun insomniac had making it , can't wait to try this truly great game . finding time to finish the 30+ hrs is my only worry , hope i get it done before Halo MCC hits .
This site is taking the piss with fanboys now, you get disagrees for saying a game is above average, its about time they brought back the open zone so we can get rid of the fanboy idiots and be able to discuss games properly without having rabid fanboys disagree because you dont think its a 10 out of 10. There is nothing wrong with a 7 or an 8, if you are using a 10 point scale there is nothing wrong with a 5 or 6 either its under 5 thats the worry. Any go eat a giant turd fanboys.
You get disagrees because you offer an opinion on the game that is based on nothing, and call other reviews silly based on nothing. What did you expect?
My opinion was based on all the gameplay vids i have watched along with reviews and other gamers opinions, what was your waste of time comment based on ? Not much just sticking your nose in again really right ? Welcome to ignore.
You seem tense.
Two Sony fanboys comment on the lowest scoring review sad!!!
Go to any review of any game and fanboys will be there, its not fanboy specific either.
Insomniac used to be my fav developer. I really can't grasp what happened. Did people leave the studio, did the management change ? The transition from Spyro to Ratchet and Clank was a remarkable one, everything following, is ranging from average to good.
You have a point. I don't see the appeal for this, you know the same appeal you get with Spyro or Ratchet, and I was never really one to play the Resistance games. But anyway you'll probably get marked as a Sony troll for saying your opinion so watch out.
6/10? That surprises me since Insomniac is a pretty great developer. How did other websites rate the game?
6 is fine tho , a little low imo but its still above average, it was 83 on meta last time I saw it
Ignore the 8s, 9s and 10s..... go straight to the 6 for the TRUE story.
Or true review? Have you played it? Me neither...
Actually yes I have ;)
Then what difference does it make to you?
due to low reviews and repetitive design I feel for this fame commercially now, can't wait to see FW figures
Uh oh, they won't be reviewing the next xbawks exclusive in time then.
Legend of Korra gets a 6/10... 1 comment Sunset Overdrive gets a 6/10... 34 comments
As far as I understand this is a legit site. I don't have any problems with a legit site giving a game that I am excited about a mediocre review - do we want artificial grade inflation? What matters is how many legitimate sites give is a 5 or less (bad) vs 6-7 (average) vs 8 (Good) vs 9-10 (Amazing). SSOD - 0% 5 or less, 14% 6 or 7 (5.1 to 7.9), 35% 8 (8.0 to 8.9), 51% 9 or higher. FH2 - 0% 5 or less, 4% 6 or 7, 41% 8, 55% 9 or higher. Mordor - 0% 5 or less, 6% 6 or 7, 40% 8, 54% 9 or higher. DriveClub - 13% 5 or less, 62% 6 or 7, 18% 8, 7% 9 or higher. While FH2 is technically in the lead of GOTY (Excluding TLOU since it won last year) - I don't think a racer can win it. So looks like Mordor. SSOD is just a tiny fraction behind it. And I can understand that. The gameplay in Mordor is fantastic. Not sure anyone is going to argue with a straight face that SSOD is SIGNIFICANTLY better then Mordor. We shall see what Halo: MCC brings. Metacritic should be over 95% based on the past - plus the great value of 4 games in 1.
What a suck ass game.
