Critic Reviews for Sunset Overdrive

Sunset Overdrive provides some of the most fun, frantic, and fantastic gaming I've had on the Xbox One.

If you wanted to be uncharitable, you could voice the suspicion that a great many baseball caps were turned backwards in the echoing board room where this project was greenlit, but with the campaign done and the city freshly filled with challenges, I don't really feel like being uncharitable. Beneath the glorious tech, and once the writing relaxes a little, Sunset Overdrive's wonderfully lurid and heartfelt - a bit like playing an old 4AD album sleeve. If you get that reference, you'll probably get this, too.

You've never explored an open world quite like this. Sunset Overdrive's iffy gunplay and inconsistent missions are redeemed by absolutely amazing mobility and an infectious enthusiasm for mayhem.

Shallow, simplistic, and never quite as funny as it thinks it is, but there's still more energy and imagination at work here than most other new next gen franchises.

Mission variety is lacking, but it didn't stop me from enjoying almost every second of play for 20-plus hours

Sunset Overdrive doesn't take itself too seriously, and it's bursting at the seams with colorful action and creativity.

An interesting combo of shooting and skateboarding that's sadly buried beneat a grating tone and gross aesthetic.
