    With its great mechanics, frantic pace, absurd story and insane missions Sunset Overdrive is mad and uncompromising, and that’s exactly what we need in the age of increasingly serious open world games committed to imitating reality. [01/2019, p.70]

    It is loud. It is silly. It is wonderfully weird. The mixture of frantic action and skate acrobatics still delivers a very unique arcade action experience.
  3. Sunset Overdrvie brings the fun on Xbox One to the PC platform. If you looking for a fun game, it's a very good alternative on the PC.

    Sunset Overdrive is one of the very few open-world games that sets itself apart from the competition with its unique and wacky setting, Parkour system and hectic gameplay experience, and all these are faithfully represented in the PC port. While solid, the port does lack some features that are expected out of a PC game in this day and age: this, coupled with the removal of co-op multiplayer, ends up damaging the experience. If you have no other mean of enjoying the game, however, Sunset Overdrive on PC is more than worthy of your time and money.

    I have been playing this game non-stop for 2 months now and still can't get enough of it. Everything from the arcade-like gameplay and funI have been playing this game non-stop for 2 months now and still can't get enough of it. Everything from the arcade-like gameplay and fun storytelling is good and entertaining. All the environments are full of color and the simplest task of even walking around is enjoyable (something like Spiderman type of enjoyable.)
    The loading screens are fast, the gameplay is fast and even spawning is fast.
    Even if you lose progress by mistakenly falling from a building, it will not make you run all the way back up, but a portal opens up and you are back where you were (In the main story missions only.)
    If you have a low tolerance like me at videogames and want to walk straight into the action and not wait around for the game to explain itself, this game is for you.

Except for web swinging, It has all the mechanics like wallrunning, pole swinging and super jump as its made by the same developers, Insomniac Games. The open world is filled with challenges, platforms to jump on and collectibles. The 4th wallbreaking is hilarious at times and respawn animations are the best I have seen. Its sadly a hidden gem and not many people know about this game. Expand

Sunset Overdrive is a open worldA massive game with great traveral, epic fights, that boasts an open world full of missions and collectables. Sunset Overdrive is a open world game that puts emphasis on style, grinding, and wall running while juggling massive hordes of enemies and minibosses. The comat is fluid with the trevel controls and it rewards you for mixing up your strategy with "style",a system which unloks super abilities the more innovate. This game also relies on a system of badges, you earn by killing certain enemies or simply traveling for certain ways for a bit of time, you then spend these badges on abilities that are always present. Though its level system leaves a lot to be desired and its theme is almost "trying to hard" punk counter culture, which breaks the 4th wall constantly... it's a welcome breath of fresh air. Good job Insomniac Expand

The story is over the top because this is a "self aware parody of action videogames" type, that is neither good or bad, it's very funny at times and cringe at others. It gets pretty ripetitive but it is generaly fun and you can have a good time playing it. If you like the non-stop action with huge movement abilities this is the game for you. Expand
