Sunset overdrive is a very unique game out of all next-generation titles available right now. The one of a kind relaxed-chaos it brings is what may help the game flourish.
There’s really only one way too describe Sunset Overdrive. Fun.
And while that is certainly true the game is not an intense and highly focused game. It’s a very relaxed-fun. While the plot and actions players take within the game isn’t quite a peaceful style, the way the game plays is.
Do anything, be anyone — and do it grinding, climbing, hacking, slashing, and firing at the mutant infested world that is your playground.
The only game that is really comparable to Sunset Overdrive right now is Dead Rising 3, and while Dead Rising wasn’t a bad game by any means, Sunset Overdrive takes a similar core and enhances it in a variety of ways.
Dead Rising 3 had a relatively linear approach to traversing the game world, and with Sunset Overdrive the fast-paced grinding and jumping keep even something as simple as going from point “A” to point “B” a fun experience.
This approach to movement not only looks cool, but brings an element of gameplay not present in other currently available “next-gen” games. It’s reminiscent of Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater games, and the Jet Set Radio series as well. Throw in some guns, hack and slash weapons, crazy “amps,” and a highly customizable main character — Sunset Overdrive is just all kinds of awesome.
For casual gamers and those who want a game to just kick-back with, this upcoming Xbox One exclusive is one of the most promising games yet of this generation.
