Designed to be all about fun; bright colours, insane weaponry and inventive traversal.
Addictive game played it a week now and it's fun careless game play. In one way it reminds me of crackdown with a little infamous Highly recommended.
Yeah,i didn't fancy it at first,but soon as you start playing,you can't get off it!really pleased i left ps4 for xbox one!
Nice review. I've not played this yet but I'm definitely going to give it a go before Christmas.
@WESTHAMUTD1 same here, I'm really pleased I left PS4 for XB1 too! Lots more choice in games right now.
Seriously tempted by this one, I'm lacking a decent care free game right now.
cool , i was thinking of the white xboxone bundle that came with this
more tempted now
Its a great game. Just loads of fun that keeps you grinning the whole time your playing. Takes a while to get used to the controls and movement but once you do the game all comes together.
Im saving this for crimbo, theres soooo many games at mo, still got to finish mordor and evil within, not to mention forza horizon, call of duty and halo collection! This holiday is jam packed.
Is it less annoying than it seems in the trailer?
Obviously not played, but the trailer for me is just a terrible, terrible advert for the game.
I must admit im enjoying this a lot more than I thought I would after seeing the reviews across the web bashing it.
It's a great big dollop of fun that never takes itself seriously and is a joy to play through and looks brilliant with the bright colour scheme.
To me it is very similar to Dead Rising (bar the grinding and jumping etc) with the hordes and survivors and silly weapons and what not, it is a hell of a lot more fun than DR3 however.
reviews bashing it? we must be reading different reviews as most of the top sites gave it a must buy status, system seller was used also.
Sunset Overdrive for Xbox One Reviews - Metacritic
I must have read the most cynical of review then as id seen 6's/7's which I think are a tad harsh to be honest. Whether or not Id call it a system seller is a different matter but with the white bundle and Halo bundles going for cheap in stores now its a perfect time to buy an Xbox.
Was it the Videogamer review by someone called Burns ?
Yeah those guys hated the game, these guys also said that the latest COD MP was the best it has been for years and had no issues....
Yeah it was, I found it slightly hypocritical that they slated the game for swearing unnecessarily yet their podcast has been filled with bad language recently...
Anyhow, the CVG review wasn't the best either but I think they've been too harsh on it personally.
This review is a good read, really well written. Chapeau

Wonder how much I can cane my way though in that time Probably won't have that much game time but I'll try my best.
Black Friday sunset overdrive will be $40 dollars to buy from USA store. Just a heads up around £25-£26 pounds.
