2027. Sunset City. A contaminated energy drink has transformed most of the population into a multitude of toxic mutants. For many it's the end of the world, but for you it’s a dream come true. Your old boss? Dead. Your boring job? Gone. Transform the open-world into your tactical playground by grinding, vaulting and wall-running across the city while using a devastating, unconventional arsenal. With hyper-agility, unique weapons, and customizable special abilities, “Sunset Overdrive” rewrites the rules of traditional shooters and delivers an explosive, irreverent, stylish, and totally unique adventure exclusively to Xbox One.
Welcome to the Awesomepocalypse
Sunset Overdrive is set in the fictional American metropolis Sunset City. The story begins when a resident mega-corporation, Fizzco, hosts a massive release party for its hot new energy drink: Overcharge Delirium XT.
But...the beverage was rushed to market. Profit first! Most of Sunset City is transformed into an array of various mutants, also called the “OD’d”. The city is quarantined and morphs into a chaotic, mutant-infested Awesomepocalypse. Soon, you realize a life of playing videogames, watching action movies, and reading comic books has given you the tools to become the hero Sunset City desperately needs.
As you progress through the epic campaign, you’ll encounter numerous plot twists and surprises, and work to unite a diverse group of survivor factions in your quest to save Sunset City and reveal Fizzco’s sadistic cover-up scheme.
A vibrant and immersive open world
Sunset Overdrive possesses a soul and style unlike any other shooter on the market – vibrant, irreverent, thrilling and explosive.

Surrounded by mutants on all sides? Lure them away by firing delicious cans of Overcharge Delirium XT from the Captain Ahab, and then sit back and detonate an explosive teddy bear with the TNTeddy grenade launcher.
Sunset Overdrive lets you become whatever hero you can imagine, giving you virtually endless options to customize your appearance and play style. Play as male or female, choose your preferred body type, and rock various hair styles, tattoos, clothing or accessories that best showcase your personality.

Players can craft new Amps by using amp recipes and ingredients can be found across the city.
Eight-player cooperative online action
Sunset Overdrive lets you and up to seven other players team up on Xbox Live in an action-packed online mode called “Chaos Squad.” Players join together to cause havoc throughout the city, voting on a series of missions with a risk-reward mechanic. Do they boost the Chaos level of the city, increasing both the difficulty and the potential rewards? Or do they take a team power-up, sacrificing some rewards to make things easier?
Culminating in a cooperative version of Night Defense, successful players unlock big rewards including in-game cash, Overcharge, crafting recipes, new weapons and vanity items. The seamless transition between the campaign and Chaos Squad lets you keep your newfound winnings across all game modes. Powered by Xbox Live, Chaos Squad lets you switch from campaign to online multiplayer and back virtually instantly.
Two-way communication and dynamic updates
Sunset Overdrive will bring a new level of community interaction. New events and content will be introduced into the game at regular intervals post-launch, and players will have the opportunity to determine items they can earn permanently in subsequent updates.3 Sunset TV, a weekly show that streams inside of Sunset City, will also bring the voice of the developer into the game on a continuous basis, and player feedback will shape the long-term evolution of Sunset City.

The game's story is simple. A new energy drink was launched, but unfortunately, anyone that drank any of it turned into a mutant. You travel around the city meeting characters and completing missions (including side missions), which pushes the story along. It's very silly and OTT, but it's supposed to be.
The traversal and combat are great. It plays like a mix of Jet Set Radio or even a Tony Hawk game combined with a shooter that has crazy weapons. Once you get used to the controls you can fluidly grind, swing and bounce around the city, taking out enemies with your arsenal of insane guns. This is not a game where you want to stand still as you'll soon be overrun by mutants. You need to keep moving and there's a meter that builds up as you do which gives you more powerful attacks. There are lots of new outfits, weapons, upgrades and perks to unlock.
The controls do take some getting used to, particularly as you need to switch weapons quite regularly, for instance, you might want to set a giant mutant on fire with one gun, then blast him with a different gun for maximum damage before the flames go out. When that's combined with the bouncing around, grinding, swinging and jumping, it can be a little tricky at first, but stick with it and after an hour or two you'll get the hang of it.
Getting into a multiplayer match is seamless. The game uses Microsoft Azure for the online play, so it has dedicated servers. While playing the single player game you'll see phone booths dotted around the city.Read more ›
To get this out of the way - the game just looks GREAT. Seriously. Good job here. Art style works, the world is colourful, animation is nice, big shout out to the explosion FX and it does a pretty good job of highlighting the routes in what could be a very confusing world.
You can read a ton of other reviews to find out about the gameplay, I just wanted to leave my feelings about it here. It's just way too fiddly and frenetic for my taste. I have it about 8 hours and just never really felt like I was in control. For me it kinda closely mirrors some of the mechanics in the old Tony Hawkes and Jet Set Radio games, but with added combat, and I was never a huge fan of those either. There's just too much going on after a while and maybe I'm getting old, but a game that runs at such a pace with so many controls (this thing uses every input on your pad, ALL THE TIME) is exhausting and not all that fun for me.
An ok effort then and you can add a star if this is the kind of game you've loved in the past, but it's not the game I wanted it to be. Feels a little like they threw everything at it and sometimes, less is more.

Fun game, you'll particularly enjoy it if you enjoyed the Tony Hawks pro skater games of old, as a lot of the mechanics are similar. Good humour throughout the game, too. Read morePublished 1 month ago by Cat James
