Rocket League has left me stomped I am really not sure what to say about this game as on paper this game really shouldn’t be my thing. Anyone that knows me knows I have no special awareness and probably one of the worst reaction speeds ever but I really do enjoy this game.
The major factor to the success of Rocket League between myself and friends that are playing it is that it was free for PS Plus members this month and in meant that although not huge sports fans, and definitely not football fans we picked up this game just to give it ago as it was getting a lot of hype in the gaming world as the streamers we watch and other community were saying how much fun it was and we just had to try it from that point there was no looking back. I have to admit I was the first to pick it up and was wondering if it was really the type of game for the guys and when they started playing it, it has become our go to game in the evenings for a bit of Co-Op.
The graphics themselves aren’t spectacular but then they aren’t terrible either and the premises is simple you get to do what the Top Gear team did in real life but virtually and that is to run around playing football in cars. I wouldn’t like to say we are great at the game well I wouldn’t even say we were good, but fun has been had by all even when everything is going wrong and we are bumping into each other, tempers on a high and we are still having fun. This game does have the potential to ruin friendships but when games only last 5 minutes who really cares if we are 8-0 down hey? Well if I’m honest we probably would worry a little more if we were playing ranked but we haven’t actually ventured that far.
Multiplayer is the driving factor for this game but don’t be worried if you haven’t got anyone to play with there is a season and offline mode where you can change the skill level of the AI. Although I haven’t spent a lot of time in this game mode, I have no doubt it’s no different to the Multiplayer online.
I would say that if you want a competitive while fun game to play that you can have a laugh with friends this is the game for you. It has an arcade feel to the game which is rare these days but I could see this game in an arcade machine if people would do an adaptation for it. I would give this a 10/10 just because I haven’t had a game where I haven’t laughed or enjoyed the match and if it can get non sports people interested when it’s based on a sport it must be doing something right.
