There was a time when Kirk and I really weren't into the often-grating, tonally-annoying Sunset Overdrive. But substance wins over style and, what do you know? We're both fans now.

We had this chat a day ago. Then I played the game more last night and now like it even more. And to think this game really annoyed me when I first played it in October. It may make a poor first impression for some of us, but the more you play, the more you unlock better weapons, upgrades and movement options—the more you learn how to chain a rail-grind to an awning-bounce to... skidding across a river... all while juggling weapons to shoot hundreds of monsters...it's just so fun! Plus, I've got a gun that now leaves flowers wherever its ammo hits.
