I originally heard about this game from Colin & Greg from kindafunny.com. After hearing them talk so eloquently about the game, I had to pull up some video & information about the game. I first thought that this game looks more fun then it will most likely be. If it goes on sale….. I will take a look at it. Little to my surprise, this game was offered to Playstation Plus members for free for the month of July. From the moment that I started playing Rocket League I was addicted.
The controls are extremely responsive. With regards to the game play, I would classify this as easy to pick up and play, and challenging to master. Network play is where this game truly shines. If playing in Ranked matches the pairing is spectacular. I found myself actually being paired with people of the same skill and the movement forward is slow and rigorous, without becoming frustrating and feeling helpless. Trophies are simple and painless.
If you are looking for a sports title, that feels nothing like a sports title, to just kind of jump in, play and then log off, this is your game. The game play is fast and each match is only 5 minutes. You will not regret the purchase of this title. There is a reason why this game has made nearly 50 Million USD. If you are strictly looking for trophies you owe it to yourself to buy this game. If you are wanting something fun to pick up and play and put back down, you owe it to yourself to buy this game. Either way….. YOU should pick up this game.
