REVIEWS Loadout Review
What do you really expect of a shooter these days? Loadout probably already has it somewhere in gobs of gameplay, but you won’t hear me saying it’s worth your time.

Dokuro (PC) Review
Dokuro makes the jump from handheld to PC, but does it help or hinder this unusual platformer?

InFamous: Second Son to Sunset Overdrive Comparison “Flattering,” Says Insomniac

Posted on Thursday, August 7 @ 05:25:00 Eastern by Alex_Osborn


InFamous: Second Son
, the PlayStation 4 exclusive from Sucker Punch Productions that launched earlier this year, is quite similar to Insomniac Games' Sunset Overdrive, which is also an open-world action platformer, only exclusive for Xbox One instead.

​GameRevolution asked Insomniac what the studio thought of the inescapable comparisons between the two, and the notion that Sunset Overdrive is essentially an InFamous: Second Son equivalent for Xbox gamers.

Believe it or not, the game's director, Drew Murray, confessed that the studio is actually quite honored to have its game compared to Second Son "The comparison is flattering," Murray explained, "as we have a longstanding friendship with Sucker Punch and are fans of the InFamous series."

That said, Murray went on to say that even though the studio is flattered by the comparison, the two titles are very different games.

Beyond some surface similarities, Sunset Overdrive is its own unique experience. Movement through Sunset City is connected to the city itself – you’re grinding along handrails and telephone wires, bouncing off of cars and awnings, wall-running along skyscrapers, gliding across canals and rivers – and is inspired by anime movies and comic books as much as games like Tony Hawk, Jet Grind Radio, Prince of Persia, and our own Ratchet & Clank.

We also have a very strong emphasis on combat and gunplay and have created a large arsenal of the crazy weapons that can only come from Insomniac. The marriage of acrobatic capabilities and wild gunplay as you move through a colorful city full of mutants, along with our tone, sense of humor, and interest in "fun" over "realism" makes Sunset Overdrive stand on its own.

Sunset Overdrive launches on October 28th, exclusively for Xbox One. In the meantime, find out why CraveOnline's Jonathan Leack believes Sunset Overdrive will be better than InFamous: Second Son and be sure read our full interview with the studio for all the juicy details.
