Sunset Overdrive Review – Over-hyped (NuzCo)

Sunset Overdrive is an Xbox One exclusive game that is full of colorful visuals, dramatically humorous gameplay and a ting of storytelling. This game had some high hopes as Sunset Overdrive was one of the brand new Xbox One exclusive games that would help set the console apart from its competitor, PS4.

I was hopping for more from is game too. it was fine but parts were a little annoying. I wanted it to be a game that helped carry the xbox one but instead it just sort of blended in.

its a shame it hasnt got more recognition, one of my best for 2014, i think it can be a little tough to get into but once you get it, it becomes great fun.

JonnyBigBoss1383d ago

Same. It's a refreshing game that has a high skill cap and is exciting to play. Great addition to 2014.

Are you talking about Sony?

"Are you talking about Sony?"

Do you mean how they are the master in the sense that they have the most games released this year with highest metacritic, or the fact it's the highest selling console of all time thus far? Or even the most powerful console of all time?

Take your pick.

So gamers are not allowed opinions about games?

I personally don't think it's an average game, but from what I've read and from what I've seen, it's extremely repetitive almost chocked full of fetch quests, and led by a pseudo-ironic hipster mentality, and flat humour. A kind of love it or hate it sorta deal. From the videos I've watched, it's trying so desperately to be funny in ways that were perhaps more funny back when I was a young teenager, and so often that it's obnoxious and doesn't hold.

Obviously a great achievement for Insomniac on a technical and artistic level (the game has a vibrant art style), but it's just like that annoying kid that's trying too hard to be liked.

Oh look, it's you! Still posting worthless comments I see.

captainexplosion1384d ago

LOL. If you haven't played the game maybe you shouldn't have an opinion. And definitely not such a detailed one. It's greatest achievements are in gameplay, traversal, and originality. And yet you say it's most successful qualities are artistic design and graphics, but the game is pretty average in those departments.

DigitalRaptor1383d ago (Edited 1383d ago )

Umm, did I not praise the game in the past? You must've missed that.

Now here, I'm just relaying what I've heard from a few people, but suddenly I can't say those things because they hurt your feelings? Those are genuine points that people who have PLAYED the game have responded to.

Not everybody brought out those points in reviews, because a lot of people obviously didn't mind the repetitive grinding, or the hipster attitude, or the desperate humour. Doesn't mean that they weren't valid criticisms when they are in fact all present.

Still the game has many redeeming factors that I think makes it a good game.

"It's greatest achievements are in gameplay, traversal, and originality"

The gameplay is a crazy mashup of other games like Jet Set Radio, Ratchet & Clank, Saints Row, inFamous and doesn't know what exactly it wants to be out of all of those. So via that, originality is completely out of the question. Traversal is basically bouncing and grinding for most of the game, which is the repetitiveness I was talking about.

The artistic style is what makes the game stand out most, not its gameplay. Don't see how it has an average art style.

So it's basicly a game for pimple-faced teenagers who drink alot of soda.

Excuse us MR. Grown Up...

The worst part is that you are probably 12 years old

IGiveHugs2NakedWomen1384d ago

Yep. That's ten years older than the person who posted a "you're a twelve year old" comment.

I guess maturity is in the eye of the beholder.

Septic1383d ago

Are you gonna buy it then?

IGiveHugs2NakedWomen1383d ago

According to someone else, i'm only twelve which means that i'm not a TEENager.

Lol, try harder next time ^_*
