Sunset Overdrive may be a bit cookie-cutter in places but it still manages to find ways to make the mundane insane. After a couple shaky games, Insomniac Games has come back to home territory with this crazy lighthearted romp. If you are looking for a good laugh and a great time on your Xbox One, you can鈥檛 do any better than Sunset.

If you want a great blast, superb exclusive and a tongue-in-cheek story that stars your own custom character (that can be updated via a variety of unlockable props and costume parts) look no further than Sunset Overdrive - if you want to see lots of grey/brown/macho-men yelling FIRE IN THE HOLE then you'd probably be better off with a dozen or so Generico MachoMan Shooters.

Insomniac Games did a spectacular job of making a fun, humor laden, gun-absorbed action platformer. From the creators of Ratchet & Clank, it's not a surprise. They have a formula and it works. It has been too long since I have played a game with such a tight control scheme and a focus on pure pandemonium. The frantic gameplay coupled with the likable character archetypes already makes it a solid contender for Microsoft GOTY. Now add a solid assortment of enemies, a somewhat engaging story, and so many guns that it would make Call of Duty blush and you've got a game worth buying.
TrueAchievements (Nov 03, 2014)
Sunset Overdrive is a blast to play; it looks great, it feels great, it pushes the limits of both the player and the console without straining either. It's why games were games in the first place, and is the best reason to date to upgrade to an Xbox One. It may not be much more than a wacky, immature and explosive adventure that tries too hard to poke fun at itself and dazzle its players with gimmicks, but Sunset Overdrive has it where it counts. It's plain and simple while over-the-top ridiculous, charming while offensive, exceptional while exceptionally tacky, in short, it knows what it is. Sunset Overdrive is fun.
IGN (Oct 27, 2014)
Sunset Overdrive is big, gorgeous, and a hell of a lot of fun. Never has getting from point A to point B in an open-world game provided so much enjoyment. It provides some of the most fun, frantic, and fantastic gaming I've had on the Xbox One. Now if you'll excuse me, I have to once-again adorn my wolf mask, leap off the highest ledge I can find, and fire an explosive stuffed animal at that group of angry robots.
Digital Chumps (Oct 27, 2014)
The creative energy fueling Sunset Overdrive is an agent of change for a genre in creative decline. Its jubilant deluge of light and color, meaningful revisions to control and combat, and the sweeping diversity of skill-based missions push the open-world paradigm harder and faster than any of its peers. With Sunset Overdrive, freely accessible content isn't a passive and plodding support structure, but rather a demanding and attractive call for constant engagement.
GamesCollection (Oct 27, 2014)
Pi霉 passa il tempo pi霉 mi accorgo che giochi sempre pi霉 complessi, realistici e 鈥渟eriosi鈥 mancano della componente principale di qualsiasi videogioco: il DIVERTIMENTO. Sunset Overdrive non ha pretese, basa tutta la sua longevit脿 sul suo folle mondo openworld senza dover creare un intreccio credibile: grindare e fare esplodere i nemici dsar脿 il fulco dell'esperienza, attivit脿 sufficiente a farvi divertire! Lo consiglio senza ripensamenti...anche se avrei gradito un pizzico di missioni principali in pi霉 per conoscere meglio alcuni esilaranti personaggi. Chiss脿 se con qualche DLC (Insomniac, mi ripeto: dlc gratuiti! Mi raccomando!) si possa aggiungere qualche elemento di variet脿 ulteriore!

Endlich wieder richtig sch枚ne durchgeknallte Arcade-Action abseits kleiner Indie-Titel! Das Wagnis von Insomniac und Microsoft hat sich gelohnt, die ungew枚hnliche Mischung geht auf: Es dauerte zwar mehrere Stunden, bis das pausenlose Skaten und H眉pfen in Fleisch und Blut 眉berging, doch dann f眉hlte es sich unheimlich gut an, blitzschnell 眉ber die D盲cher der toll designten Hafenstadt zu rauschen und ganze Horden grunzender Limonade-Zombies mit stilvollen Kombos zu zerbomben. Auch der rotzige Punk-Soundtrack und die omnipr盲sente Selbstironie passen prima. Allein schon die Missionsziele sind mitunter derart bekloppt, dass sich sogar mein namenloser Held dar眉ber aufregt. Sicher: Es gibt ungeschliffene Ecken und Kanten wie einige monotone Missionen oder die nicht ideale Waffenbalance. Im Gegenzug hatte ich aber nie das Gef眉hl, einfach nur einen weiteren Action-Titel in einer offenen Welt vor mir zu haben.

If you liked even one of the games I mentioned above, check out Sunset Overdrive. It鈥檚 definitely one of the more intriguing Xbox One exclusives to date, and worth playing for anyone that owns the system and enjoys the genre.
Giant Bomb (Oct 31, 2014)
This is an great debut for Insomniac on a new console, and it's great to see the developer of Ratchet & Clank getting back to a lot of colorful nonsense after focusing on Fuse and Resistance for so long. There's some room for growth in a few spots if this turns into a franchise, as it probably will, but this first effort is already a good solid reason to own an Xbox One, and one of the stronger open-world games released this year.
GameSpot (Oct 27, 2014)
Insomniac Games has crafted an excellent game in Sunset Overdrive. It's not without a few niggling issues, but you'll be too busy enjoying yourself to care. You can compare it to games like Crackdown, Tony Hawk's Pro Skater, and Ratchet and Clank, but by combining the best elements of those games into a single package and injecting it with an anything goes, rock and roll attitude, you'll never think of it as anything but a singular achievement that stands tall on its own merits. It's one of the best games on the Xbox One, and a refreshing shot of merriment.
Trusted Reviews (Oct 27, 2014)
It might not be the year鈥檚 most ground-breaking or innovative action game, but Sunset Overdrive is one of the most entertaining. Its mix of grinding and gunplay works beautifully, and the amps and the ridiculous weaponry ensure that slaughtering hordes of slavering mutants never gets old. It鈥檚 a little too scrappy and repetitive to be a classic, but who cares? Grab your biggest gun and let the good times roll.
There are few games like Sunset Overdrive. It鈥檚 a comical, highly diverse shooter that has a strong focus on being fun rather than realistic. While the fetch quests are overly aggressive and the music will occasionally cut out at the oddest of times, there鈥檚 still a lot here to love. A well-written script chock-full of fourth wall breaking references, some of the best traversal mechanics available, colorful visuals and a dense world to explore, players will be immersed in this awesome-apocalypse. It鈥檚 a shame the campaign doesn鈥檛 support full cooperative play, though, as it feels like it could have excelled with it, but the multiplayer component ensures for a decent substitution. All in all, Sunset Overdrive is a breath of fresh air in a stagnant, overpopulated marketplace of gritty shooters.
Jeuxvideo.com (Oct 27, 2014)
Sunset Overdrive ne r茅volutionnera pas le genre, c'est certain. Mais il reprend avec efficacit茅 des 茅l茅ments tir茅s de titres confirm茅s, parvenant 脿 mixer un gameplay nerveux et d茅complex茅 avec un univers compl猫tement d茅jant茅. Le r茅sultat est l脿 : on s'y amuse et c'est avec plaisir que l'on s'attarde sur les nombreux d茅fis 脿 remplir tout en cherchant 脿 dompter parfaitement un gameplay aux rouages bien huil茅s. On lui pardonnera donc ais茅ment ses objectifs de missions redondants et son syst猫me de vis茅e impr茅cis, deux points qui gagneraient 脿 锚tre corrig茅s pour ce titre s'il veut se faire sa place dans l'univers ultra-concurrentiel des mondes ouverts vertigineux. Rendez-vous au second 茅pisode ?
Impulse Gamer (Oct 29, 2014)
Sunset Overdrive wants to be liked and it wants to be different. Badly. The fact that it manages to pull this off in spite of more than a few annoyances is an achievement in itself. At the end of the day, it is a hell of a lot of fun to navigate the city and blast enemies, the customization is enjoyable to mess around with and even some of the attempts at humour land (The re-spawn animations in particular). The shortcomings are there however, and it prevents Sunset Overdrive from being the game it so desperately wants to be seen as.
The Games Cabin (Oct 28, 2014)
Graphically pleasing and highly enjoyable, a must-buy for those looking for an open-world experience akin to Crackdown/Jet Set Radio with the humour and madness of Dead Rising and Saints Row.
Gameblog.fr (Oct 27, 2014)
Sunset Overdrive est un cocktail d茅tonnant pour ceux qui aiment les jeux d'arcade, les mondes ouverts, la glisse, et les univers d茅jant茅s 脿 l'humour bien gras. Avec un gameplay tout en glissades (ou en "grinds", faites votre choix), ses explosions de partout, ses armes ultra fun (mais dont certaines manquent de sensations), ses monstres d茅goulinants, ses h茅ros et intervenants d茅lirants, ses qu锚tes annexes d茅biles par dizaines et ses dialogues bas du front mais dr么les, il est bien le gros g芒teau d茅foulant qui fera mouche aupr猫s des joueurs les plus jeunes. Mais dans le fond, il lui manque un truc, une v茅ritable identit茅 et une vraie coh茅rence, car pour certains il ne sera qu'un simple fourre-tout bien emball茅 et bien rempli.
In among the density and neediness however there's a good game. One that's shamelessly focused on the fun of pinging around a city with an arsenal of ricocheting insanity guns, and so intent on being entertaining that it's endearing even when it doesn't work. There are fantastic moments where everything aligns perfectly, and even when it falls flat through over-effort the basic action is still a rewarding and noisy mess.
GamerGen (Oct 27, 2014)
D'un c么t茅, nous avons cet habillage hyper color茅 et p茅tillant, ce gameplay nerveux invitant 脿 partir "en live" et un arsenal bien d茅jant茅 comme il faut. De l'autre, une aventure r茅p茅titive, mal emball茅e et ne laissant pas un souvenir imp茅rissable. En d'autres termes, Sunset Overdrive est bel et bien un jeu Insomniac Games, poss茅dant donc les qualit茅s de ses d茅fauts. En outre, il vient marcher sur les plates-bandes du tr猫s r茅ussi Dead Rising 3, en for莽ant la parodie 脿 outrance. Certains n'appr茅cieront pas le "too much", d'autres s'amuseront comme des fous 脿 d茅zinguer des infect茅s par centaine dans une cour de r茅cr茅 g茅n茅reuse. Mais ceux qui voyaient en Sunset Overdrive l'茅quivalent d'un inFAMOUS: Second Son sur Xbox One seront loin de la v茅rit茅. Au final, nous sommes bien loin de Sunset Overhype et Insomniac Games avait vu juste en invitant la presse 脿 ne pas l'茅crire. Swag oui, hype non.
Games TM (Dec 04, 2014)
Sunset Overdrive is a Ratchet & Clank game given a new skin that's as bulbous and infected as the OD it makes you fight. It's by no means a bad experience - the gameplay is functional and if you take a shine to it, likely to be playable for a good 40 hours or more. But it seems like it was made for an audience of gamers over a decade ago, brimming with try-hard references and cringe-worthy jokes. Penetrate the skin, and you've got a serviceable game at the core. But a ten-hour journey to the centre of what makes Sunset Overdrive good feels more like a voyage to the centre of the earth.

As it stands, Sunset Overdrive is a worthwhile addition to the Xbox One library and a good sign of things to come from both the console and Insomniac.
