Sunset Overdrive is a very different kind of game for Insomniac, but it trades well on all the experiences that brought the studio here. Fans will recognize its knack for inventive weaponry and nicely-designed traversal, but the two haven't been joined in this way before. Those elements make this rebellious teen something special that even its sometimes overwrought attitude can't dampen.

It's not perfect: there aren't enough stages, some of the levels (such as the wrecking ball mission) aren't great, and sometimes it's tough to discern what is actually happening, given the amount of nonsense on screen (of which it must be said that the engine holds up phenomenally well). But I enjoyed the hours I spent playing it much more than the considerably longer time I had with the campaign.

While there's obviously plenty of room for your grim, dark, militarized war games, it's refreshing to see something so irreverent, bright, and silly. Maybe Insomniac overdid it in the screwball department, but I'll take that over another Fuse. ...While its commitment to madness can be maddening itself, Sunset Overdrive is an energetic, fun-focused adventure. The jokes don't always hit home, but this is a game that loves being a game, and you can't hate that sort of honesty.
