Don’t miss the game that IGN awarded Best Xbox One Game of 2014, the game that Polygon rated 9 out of 10, and the game that Eurogamer calls “a breath of fresh air.” In Sunset Overdrive, the year is 2027 and Sunset City is under siege. A contaminated energy drink has transformed most of the population into 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. The downloadable version of this game supports English, French, Italian, German, Spanish, Polish, Portuguese, Russian, Japanese.

Class of it's own

This game is incredible, the story awesome, the dialogue was hilarious, the environment was eye candy, and the music was perfect, this one of those few games that keep you wanting to come back and very enjoyable, would recommend as first game someone should buy on this console

Would be great if I could actually play...

I would love to give this game 5 stars but sadly I cannot. This game is a breath of fresh air, brought to life by a vibrant world and satisfying parkour mechanics. Sunset Overdrive was a game I was really looking forward to playing. However, about 20 minutes into the game, a bug prohibits me from completing the tutorial mission. When the game forces you to equip your weapon amp, the screen cuts out and does not allow me to select the item you need. I have tried multiple solutions to bypass this bug, such as uninstalling all DLC content, deleting my save files TWICE, and clearing my xbox cache. Unfortunately none of these things worked and i am unable to advance in the game. Money wasted on a game I was thrilled to play. If this issue is fixed I will change my rating

Sunset Over?

I love this game alot,it reminds me of Dying Light because of the parkour mechanics and it also reminds me of Dead Rising because you get to make all these crazy weapons and customize your character.Also because of these stupidly funny and cool quests like risking your character's life for comic books and scavenging the city for toilet paper and shoes.The game's worth buying but is this game over?I would love to see a second one soon,plus I have an idea for it! #WeWannaSeeSunsetOverdrive2SoonPlease!

Very very fun and addicting, but you need xbox live to play even for single player. Plus there is no way to fully restart the game to play story mode again, just replaying missions...

The gameplay is phenomenal, the story isn't too serious but humorous enough to keep you entertained, the world is mastercrafted, as in it feels lkie your playing in a living, breathing world, as well as having a vibrant array of colors., And ,best off all, insomniac has done something no open world game I've played has done, it's made travel fun. Not once did I use fast travel, because bouncing and zipping through the lush, colorful city never got old. Hands down one of the best games I've ever played.

Best Xbox One exclusive

Easily the most fun and creative game of the generation. I wish more games would just be about having fun. This game has set a standard that no other game has been able to reach on Xbox One or PS4. Insomniac continues to prove they are one the best devs of all time.
