Wild, quick, and type of silly, Sunset Overdrive is Insomniac Games’ love letter to pop punk nonsense and shallow teen insurrection. Which, OK, would not sound that nice as an issue for a videogame, however consider me: Sunset Overdrive guidelines. Its motion system and inventive fight choices, mixed with its shiny colour palette, anoint it as an unlikely little one of Jet Set Radio, whereas its engine and inventive power turned the bedrock for Insomniac’s later tackle acrobatic open-world motion in Spider-Man.
If you want open worlds, goofy aesthetics, and acrobatic motion, Sunset Overdrive is the cult basic you have been ready for. It’s included with Xbox Game Pass.
