About

2027, the metropolis of Sun City.

The city is full of creatures, savage, aggressive and insane - these creatures were just ordinary townspeople a short while ago, but they abused the energy drink produced by Fizzco, in which something was wrong with the recipe. In general, loyal consumers mutated into monsters and now nothing can be done with them, only to kill everyone.

The protagonist (by the way, who worked at Fizzco) is not constrained by any laws of physics, can move around the city in any direction, run on walls and wires, jump like a kangaroo and so on. This is not parkour, it's just complete freedom of movement. He also has a "guidance system" that shows him the way.

In addition to the hero, several groups and singles of varying degrees of eccentricity are fighting monsters in the city. Monsters also do not belong to the same type. Monsters are many, they are very different and extremely unusual - there are, for example, creatures fused with water cannons or a bucket from an excavator. The hero's weapon is even more diverse than the monsters. Various weapons rush vinyl records, throw bowling balls, shoot teddy bears with pieces of TNT in their paws and this is not the whole list.

The game has about fifty amps to move the hero and defeat the monsters.

Sunset Overdrive reviews and comments

This game reminds me of the first tony hawk skatboarding games, but with big guns and infected in it. Add tons of funny jokes and you got sunset overdrive! Totally worth 20$, i could pay more if i had to for this masterpiece. So glad it finally came to PC. 10/10

A game I've been waiting for a long time and I'm so glad it's finally on PC! This is my favorite game and I was disappointed that it was in excluded Xbox one. Finally a game with new personalisation possibilities! A humor that crosses the fourth wall and rock music! Just perfect!

Sunset Overdrive I have it wipe in 2014 on Xbox and I will twist it again on PC thanks! For those who never did, dark the games is to acherter the eyes close so much that it is good! Ultra fluid gameplay, very original weapons, the 4th walls break, language jouisif... and encode plain something else! Buy to kiffer a good about 20h with the main quest and some secondary.

Lazy port of a fantastic Xbox one game. Issues with resolution, stuttering, controls... Few graphic settings. Some exclusive console games should remain exclusive. Lazy Portage of a great game. Cannot change the resolution of the game in the menus. Big trouble with performance. frequent FPS falls. In some places (boss of Bora Bora) it jerks off to death. and becomes unplayable. Sometimes they'd better not fit the excluded consoles on PC if it's to have such a result.

Humor, gameplay, rhythm, story... It's all there. In short this game is a killing, I strongly advise all amateurs of the genre. Obviously we find the baston, the Gore, the valves of phew and explosions in TT the senses, halfway between a Duke Nukem of the time and Resident Evil (for the story), even dubbing in French is excellent. It's been way too long since I had no more burst like this in a video games on PC. One detail, if you plan to play keyboard/mouse forget it's going to be complicated.

After an Hour on Steam and hundreds on the XBox One I have to say that Game is SUPER! The Story is pretty much off and funny over and over again. The Characters fit into the crazy Game with their crazy Mindset. The Gameplay is mega. Jump-n Run together with a TPS go together amazingly well. The Weapons and the Amps make this Game even better. The Graphics offer few Customizable Settings but so many Do not need the Game. I mean on my Garbage PC it runs too. The Game looks great for the "bad" graphics settings. In the Case of the Collectible objects, the Design was given to a great deal and they were well and obviously hidden. If You like Jump're Run and or a good TPS, you should definitely get the Game. "Don OVERthink it. Just buy it!"
While not as visually appealing, emotional or mechanically deep as, for example, InFamous: Second Son. Sunset Overdrive manages to do two things really well: it has one of the most fluid, combo-filled and exciting world traversal systems I've ever seen, and the selection of guns makes you unconsciously giggle like a child when you bombard hoards of OD (local zombies) with exploding Teddy bears.

And while the story is nothing special, the characters are flatter than the face of OD ran over by the train, Sunset Overdrive still manages to keep you engaged, giving you more weapons, more enemies, and even trickier terrain to navigate.

If you have an Xbox - I definitely recommend picking this one up, if you're into some light-hearted destruction filled with countless 4th wall jokes and backed by a decent soundtrack.
