Game: Rocket League
Genres: Sports? Racing? Both?
Platforms: PS4, PC
Where to begin? This game is like soccer on steroids. It features rocket-powered cars that are able to flip, fly in the air, and apply propulsion to move at extremely fast speeds. This is a game that is unique and very hard to describe. In 5 minutes, you have to score as many goals as possible with the help of your teammates. There are different modes of game play including Exhibition, Online Matches, and even LOCAL Co-op! (I can’t even begin to tell you how exciting having a local player co-op in this day and age is. It is a valued addition to games that is slowly dying unfortunately in the wake of online multiplayer.) Anyway, this game has ranked matches and unranked matches while featuring 1 v 1, 2 v 2, 3 v 3, and 4 v 4 matches. There is also a wide variety of options to customize your car with ranging from the awesome to hilarious.
+ Local Co-op!
+ Online Multiplayer
+ Variety of customization options
+ Intense action
+ Not a bad soundtrack
- Takes a lot of practice to get decent at the game
- Servers can be a bit laggy (but very rarely)
- AI can sometimes score on your own goal
Rating: 8.4/10. This game is a lot of fun to play online or with friends. I don’t have many complaints about it. The developers seem committed to improving this game continuously. It is a lot of fun and in general a very creative game in its own simplicity. I would recommend that you pick it up!
