Sunset Overdrive: 10 Things It Does Better Than Anyone Else

It’s hard to wrap your head around the brilliance of Overdrive without breaking down the elements that make it so fun in the first place. This article seeks to do exactly that, and hopefully introduce some new players to the *ahem* Awesomepocalypse (just go with it).

I'm having a blast with this game at the moment. The traversal is so much fun, you can get from one side of the city to the other in no time when you master it. The weapons and amps are awesome too. I like to mix the TnT Teddy with the amp that creates an explosion when you jump on things. Mass carnage.

Once the airdash unlocks, the game really opens up.

Wait until you get the Hairspray Gun and the Roman Candle.

Best guns in the game, IMO

Yep, I love the beauty of the Roman Candle gun and the Hairspray gun packs a mean chain of burning carnage, especially once it's leveled up.

This game is so entertaining, the chaos mode is pure gaming fun at its finest, that and since I've beat the game sometimes I just hop on the game just to romp through the city trying to chain some insane traversal moves without hitting the ground.

I really love the amount of creativity that went into this game and I still have so many collectibles, challenges and side missions I want to finish. I honestly think it's the best new IP so far this gen and dare I say with much respect beforehand to Bayonetta 2, Forza Horizon 2 and Shadow of Mordor, imo Sunset Overdrive is my game of the year, yeah I'll definitely play Halo MCC more but that's cause its 4 games and over 100 maps, plus nostalgia= huge fan service, but again for a new IP Insomniac really nailed it.

I have the Roman Candle already, love it. I'm saving up for the Hairspray gun, though.

And yeah, the air-dash is definitely the thing that makes the traversal most fun to use. It links everything together smoothly.

I'm trying to get the shocker weapon... Oh, and I want the hairspray gun. CRAZY, CRAZY, CRAZY, AMAZING GAME!

its my favorite game since the original infamous and that was my favorite game of last gen , but i think sunset is better . movement is so ridiculously fun .

This game is an absolute blast.

To me it's an awesome mix of infamous + crackdown + some Ratchet & Clank style humor (with a bit saltier language, or course) & weapons.

I've found myself neglecting missions altogether and just zipping around the city blowing stuff up.

Master stroke by Insomniac, imho
