"As an Xbox One exclusive Sunset Overdrive is a real coup for Microsoft, a must-buy for anyone with the system, and for those without as good a reason as any to consider acquiring one."
damn, I still cant believe this game is scoring as well as it is. pleasantly surprised. :)
Yeah, even better than the scores are the things those playing it are actually saying about the game: "There’s no question Sunset Overdrive lives up to the hype. It takes a while to adjust to the style of play it demands but once you do, you discover the pure joy that comes from playing a brilliant game. Flitting about the tippy-top of Sunset City, alternating between grinds and wall-runs to blow away hordes of hilarious enemies is a thrill you won’t soon forget. If you have an Xbox One, you need this in your life. If you don’t have Microsoft’s new box yet, it’s time to think about rectifying that.Sunset Overdrive’s the best game I’ve played all year and I’ll be surprised if anything tops it anytime soon." -Seriously just read this whole review and others as well, this guy made me even more pumped to play SSO than I already am.
Looks like the rest of the world is awake. 9/10 reviews overdrive!
Congrats to Microsoft and Insomniac, an other great game for XB1!
Wow I am extremely tempted to trade in destiny for this!
$59.99 well spent imo. Cant wait to try this game out tonite. The X1 is starting to come into its own. Great games, Great exclusives, excellent firmware updates, and imo the best online service makes the X1 a smart choice this holiday.
You know? You are not the first person I've seen in these Sunset Overdrive reviews where their comment sounds like an advertisement. "a smart choice this holiday" Come on man, come on.. lol
Lol i no right! It did kinda come off like that but seriously if u could only afford one system this holiday then the X1 really is a SMART (not saying better for the sensitive crowd) choice.
This game is getting good reviews. But there's some problems I've read that kills it for me, like the repetitive mission design and rinse and repeat structure. Here's a summary from a couple of reviews I've skimmed through -Stereotypical characters -Forced humor, not subtle and bad writing -Ultra-repetitive mission design -Too easy and no difficulty settings +Traversal +Weapons and shooting +Graphics
The humor has also been a positive on majority of the sites. Seems to me you are picking and choosing. What game doesn't rinse and repeat?In every game you are either platforming multiple times, or shooting multiple times, or sneaking multiple times and you are always going from A to B. Hell the Last of Us one giant from A to B mission and then you are sneaking or killing.Does it ruin the experience? No not at all. There is simply no way around this.
Only game I would buy an Xbox One for at the moment. I love Insomniac, enjoy Xbox owners.
