"Put simply, Sunset Overdrive is a beautiful ode to video games. It provides players with a colorful, hilarious, and all around joyful experience, offering a break from the monotony not only of the current shooter landscape, but from that of other open-world games (i.e. Watch Dogs). It revels in being a game, and every design appears to have been made with the sole purpose of providing the player with as many fun experiences as possible. With tons and tons of weapons," upgrades, challenges, and side quests to complete, post-apocalyptic life has never seemed so damned appealing.
