Rocket League…Bro…..What are you doing at work? Go home and play this RIGHT NOW!
Ok, yeah... I know, make sure you get paid today, but when you get home run to
your Playstation and fire this up and invite some friends to come over for a game of 1v1 or 2v2 or 3v3 or 4v4 for local cooperative play on split-screen . This game is insane.
Think of it as Smugglers Run meets Idarb. This is PlayStation’s Answer for Xbox’s Idarb and what an amazing game this is. The concept is really easy. You don’t even have to be good at racing in this arcade game. With your rocket powered car, simply hit gas and go as fast as you can to hit this giant ass ball into your opponents goal.
I played this last night with a group of my friends for a couple hours and we couldn’t stop, but we had too knowing we all had work in a few hours and had to get some sleep . BUT WE DIDN’T WANT TO STOP!
One of my favorite moments last night was doing a barrel roll in the air for a shot on goal and I scored. I screamed like a little school girl rubbing it in my friend’s face. I am looking forward to doing a bicycle kick next time with my rocket powered sauce!
What’s even more awesome about this game is that you can level up through the player progression system where winning matches and in-game feats allow you to customize your car and unlock vehicles such as Sweet Tooth from Twisted Metal and much more! Dude, and then you can start an in-game 36 week season for yourself or start a tournament amongst your friends.
I believe there are, right now, about 5 or 6 different arenas you can play on and they all look neon and glossy. The leader boards track your statistics. The AI in this game is smart. You can choose what level of difficulty you want to play on. When playing with your friends, the AI can be for or against you. The PlayStation trophies seem endless.
The only problem (and why I don’t give this simple yet exciting game a 9 out of 10) are the online servers with longer matchmaking and connection issues. This game has actually overheated some PS4’s when left on while you’re away. There is a patch coming to fix this.
Do not let this sway you! This is a free game with PlayStation Plus. What more can you ask for? This game is bringing you back to the old days of inviting your pals over. That’s the best way to get the most out of this awesome game.
I give it a 9.0
