I'm utterly addicted to Rocket League. Part of its undeniable charm is that it's a sports game for people who don't normally play sports games. I, however, am a massive fan of sports games... so really it's just a game for pretty much everyone. Rocket League's accessibility helps to make that a reality – it doesn't matter how good you are at FIFA, whether you're a seasoned gaming veteran or not. The game's tutorials do a good job of teaching you the basics and getting you used to waiting for the perfect opportunity to strike.
Rocket League, like many sports titles, is a game of fine margins – close shaves, nail-biting drama, spectacular saves, and ferocious finishes. But because of its pace and player count, those moments are crammed in incredibly tightly to each match's five-minute runtime. There's barely time to catch your breath as matches become end-to-end battles where there's little respite from the heart-stopping action.
Add to that some sweet unlocks and plentiful customisation, the ability to replay games and muck about with broadcast cameras and the like, and you can savour your finest moments again and again. Oh, and there's the soundtrack too. I can't get "Firework" out of my head.
It's quite brilliant.

Rocket League is a team sports game. It has cars in it and it looks somewhat like soccer but really, it's its own thing. You play as one player on a team and everyone player on the fields is completely antonymous, which makes it feel like it has more in common w/ a MOBA or team based shooter than it does something like a FIFA game where you control whatever player has the ball. This individual experience draws you into each game and makes for a tense, fun online experience like no other in gaming right now. What's really impressive about Rocket League is how it is accessible pretty much on your first game playing and later develops into a rather deeper game w/ much more strategy and skill without losing the initial fast paced fun that made it great to begin w/. You start off randomly making insane goals accidentally due to mistakes made by the inexperienced players you are paired w/ and move on having to make insane goals because it's the only way to get the ball passed the experts you are paired w/ later on. It is great and satisfying when you begin to be able to make pinpoint shots on the fly that you would have completely wiffed on few dozen hours before and simultaneously humbling when someone is able to capitalize on some small mistake you've made and punish you in the last seconds of a game. The learning curve is excellent and because of developer Psyonix's great-match making, Rocket League never even begins to bore you. The gameplay modes are pretty barebones here which is actually part of the charm. You have one on one to four on four player matches and that's about it. You can play single player seasons but that's more for practice than anything. Ranked matches provide a challenge for experienced players and Psyonix throws in an occasional oddball mode for a bit of variation. Really, the standard three on three mode is more than enough given there are always equally skilled players online to play against; everything else is just gravy. In short, even if you don't like sports games and even if you don't like competitive online games--and I really don't for the most part--this game is an absolute must play. It takes five or ten minutes of your time and turns it into a quick competitive blast of unmitigated fun. It takes a simple, easy concept and you can spend as much or as little time playing as you want and still have a great time. There are online games w/ more split second timing or deeper strategy but Rocket League stands on its own in terms of its accessibility paired w/ extreme replay-ability.
It's simple mechanics make the game just brilliant. But this isn't just like every other game because when you start playing competitive, you'll turn around and say to yourself "I'm pretty good at this game!". You'll play you're placement matches and then get your rank, and as you progress up through the ranks you'll see people do stuff and you'll say "That's Impossible!". You'll watch a few youtube videos and get better, remap keys, buy a controller, buy keys, open crates, be disappointed, find out about trading. Think you're a pro and say "I'm going to trade from nothing to something", then get frustrated, give up. Play 1's get mad, uninstall the game, Reinstall it. To put it simply if you like this game you like it and get hooked if you don't you play it for an hour or so and get bored. But let's be honest your not going to buy this at full price you'll get it in the sale for ?6 or $8 so do what you want and have fun.
At first, I was somewhat afraid that Rocket League would become boring after a few couple of hours. How wrong was I... After almost 1000 hours, I can say that this game is indeed easy to play, hard to master. Simply amazing to see how much better you'll get with time. Its a constant evolution. You also have a lot of game modes to keep you entertained (1vs1; 2vs2; 3vs3; 4vs4; Rumble; Hoops; Dropshot and also the competitive scene). Recommended!
Rocket League is a neat, lightweight and quick paced game. The objective seems quite simple at first: use your car to drive the ball into the goal. Problem is, many times you'll be dealing with opponents that can use the physics of the game against you, or just ram and blow you up. Nevertheless, that's what makes every game fun and engaging, at less than $20 Rocket League is simply great and new content (maps, cars and game modes) is constantly being added both for free and paid (in case of cosmetics) so you can always join in a match with your friends without worrying about being alienated for not buying the latest expansion pack or whatnot. Seriously, stop reading this and just try it out.
Have you got 5-10 minutes of spare time and are just a bit tired after work or school and need to wind down? May I present to you the Rocket League? You will try to play football, except you will not use your legs, but a rocket-powered car. I know, it sounds crazy, but it actually is crazy. I am not good at this game. I know that I can improve a lot, and maybe I will in the future. But even with my complete lack of skill the game is so much fun. It is one of the rare instances of a game I am just happy to watch replays, as the plays made by me and other players can be so thrilling and surprising. Oh, and playing with bots just to learn the ropes works really well, so don't worry that it is multiplayer.
