Sunset Overdrive is a garish, over-the-top explosion of color and sound. Its punk rock sensibilities are evident at every turn. Even four years after launching in 2014 as an Xbox One exclusive, this is still one of the best games of its generation.
The credit for that belongs entirely to Insomniac Games, the same studio responsible for 2018 game of the year contender Spider-Man. Fans of Sunset no doubt felt echoes of that earlier game in Spidey. At their core, both games are about the joy of movement.
