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.

This is simply the most fun I've had playing a more "casual" style game. I've always been more into bigger, AAA titles personally, but that all stopped when I first played Rocket League. I'm not a sports guy, I'm not even into soccer, but this game's combination of rocket cars, silly car accessories and fun physics is the perfect combination. There is a slight learning curve to understand the world's physics and the car's characteristics, but I already am able to accomplish some awesome little stunts. Some of the goals and saves you make in this game are absolutely ridiculous. It's been years since I've been so engrossed in a game where I'm yelling, cheering and laughing the entire time, constantly on the edge of my seat. Multiplayer online, private party, and even local "co-op" works very well. Recently we hooked this game up on my buddy's laptop and played it at the beach when it was raining. It was awesome bringing the whole family together since everyone could play this game (I got my butt kicked by a 9 year old, lol). You can play 1v1 all the way up to 4v4, both online and offline (single player vs bots). There's a training section where it shows you the basics as well as advanced maneuvers. They also added a few new cool things such as a basketball mode, hockey, and experimental maps (which are really cool and will change the way you play/adapt to the map in order to win). One thing I don't like are some of the unlockables you win. For the most part you'll unlock silly things you can put on your car, like hats, or antennae toppers as well as less silly things like paint jobs and decals; and these things are awesome. They even recently added a trading system where you can trade in five common items for a better item (which I haven't done yet, so I'm not sure what kind/quantity you get). What bothers me are the chests you'll unlock. The chests have tons of cool stuff in them. You can obtain as little or as many items as you want out of each chest for the small price of just one key. The caveat here is each key costs actual dollars. I just find it pretty lame that I have to PAY for the things I unlock in the game. As far as I can tell, or at least so far in my playing, you cannot obtain, win or unlock any keys by playing the game - you must purchase them. I understand that paid content and DLC is becoming more mainstream (thanks EA) so this isn't exactly surprising, and may not be a negative for some people. I really can't recommend this game enough. This game is so much fun, for casual and hardcore gamers alike. Be warned, it is very addicting, and action and energy packed (especially the soundtrack, which is great!)!
Is there any chance that such a gamd could receive negative reviews? No way! Rocket League really got my attention, because I found it unique & unbelievably addictive for Solo AND Multiplayer. Crazy tricks, mayhem, scoring great goals, big variety of cars & customization, fast matchmaking, nice Modes/Career, replayability, cool Maps, Bots are available for offline & online, and last but not least... you will have a great time also playing with a friend (note: you can also e.g play 2 against 2, but if you want you can add one bot in your team in case you don't want a "real" teammate). Honestly, I can't find anything negative for Rocket League. Tje first time I played, I played over and over, and still play a lot. Maybe it's the authenticity, maybe it's because it's a really really good game... it's all a combination that made it so successful & really addictive. And guess what, it doesn't cost over 59$! I would definitely recommend Rocket League, even to people that don't like football, you know? Of course it isn't the same, but you get my point. 5 Stars from me. I still enjoy this game. If you consider purchasing it, do not lose the chance especially at a sale!
Simple game with simple rules, but hard to master with a high skill ceiling, but there are enough people playing that there are always games to play at your level. Easy to pick up and play for a few minutes or a few hours. Hard to fault this game or the devs. The game is designed to be pure fun for everybody and it achieves this goal with flying marks. A definite recommendation for just about anyone coming by, trust me that you can have fun without investing a ton of time, just mind that it's a big online game and like any other of the size, it attracts trolls, plain idiots and other sorts of human scum, so do you a favor and disable voice and maybe text chat in the options and you are good to go.
When I first saw gameplay footage of this game it blew my mind it's one of these games which you wanted to play so much and you didn't even know you wanted to. First of all it's not a sports game it's much different than that. I've showed this game to some of my friends and once they saw it they got it right away and started playing non stop this game is very addicting. when you first start this game you don't know what you're doing and every time you hit the ball you get a thrill that's undeniably great. If you're looking for a fun game to play with your friends that you can just start playing and forget about the rest of the world you should buy this game and get ready for a huge adrenaline rush.
Fun to play on your own, and better with friends. This game may seem like a sports simulation but it's more than that. Many FPS friends love this as much as their FPS games. My Sports friends love it too. Just a good hybrid game. Cross play with XBONE and PS4, soon Nintendo Switch provides are large pool of players. Easy learning curve to play the game. Great to play for 5 minutes or 2 hours. Great developers giving out free content and listening to their user base. Easily my favorite go to game.
