    With a grand number of game modes, maps, and interesting characters with unique abilities alongside their personalized explosives, Rocket Arena certainly has more than enough personality to set itself from the pack.

    Rocket Arena has a lot of potential, and the game is worth paying attention to at least because of the original mechanics. It is a high-quality and interesting project that is definitely worth trying for fans of online shooters.

    Rocket Arena does what it promises. Final Strike Games delivered a shooter that feels different from the rest of what is available on the market thanks to original mechanics that make it a perfect mix between an arena shooter and a party game.

    Ultimately, while it is fun in small doses, Rocket Arena feels itself like an alternate mode in a larger game. It's bright and colourful but as a standalone experience it feels a little too limited and imbalanced to lead the pack

    An accessible, lightweight competitive shooter. Though it's a little thin in its current state, this is a solid start for what will hopefully become a lively and dynamic game as its season pass gets underway.

    The truth is that Rocket Arena is in a lot of trouble, because it doesn’t offer enough to warrant the price tag. The more concerning thing is that if it does indeed go free-to-play, it isn’t unique enough to lure people away from the plethora of other service games that are more established, more varied, and ultimately more fun. Rocket Arena may be worth a look for free, but otherwise, I’d suggest you stick to the games you’re excited about.

The heroes are all so fun and unique that I play every hero and it feels different every time. The mix of no hit-scan, getting quickly back into the action and well-timed dodges make a fair and entertaining game. Expand

    The premature hate this game received upon the final reveal trailer only proves how spoiled the hardcore shooter community is. Initially, thisThe premature hate this game received upon the final reveal trailer only proves how spoiled the hardcore shooter community is. Initially, this cartoony and charming game was meant to be a kid-friendly successor to the beloved Arena Shooter "Quake Champions," but at the reveal that the game was switching to a third-person perspective people freaked out. Those who didn't know about it beforehand dismissed it as one of the many lazy EA cash grabs and the ignorant masses laughed before moving on to the next forgettable, chance-based trend ("Fall Guys"). Little do they know that this game is NOT made by EA, but, rather, is published by it so this plucky Indie studio could afford to release the game.
    And guess what? I haven't had this much fun with a multiplayer game in years.
    The game has an initial cost to play--courtesy of EA, ironically--which allows the player to buy almost everything in the in-game shop with FREE currency that is earned by leveling up the characters and completing fairly easy challenges. A Battle Pass called a Blast Pass is included for the player to earn even more rewards, and this is also actually fairly generous in its XP payouts since you gain more by winning than losing--as long as you play--and how long a match lasts (since everyone is encouraged to try their best, a full, challenging match nets a fairly fat sum), as well as your daily and weekly challenges, which makes a big difference in the long run.
    The game places a heavy emphasis on movement like other Arena Shooters, combining well-timed dodges with aerial jumps that allow the player to outmaneuver his or her opponent. Every character also has a trick up his or her sleeve (one character LITERALLY does) to either escape danger or block incoming volleys in the nick of time.
    Character archetypes range from snipers to tanks to tried and true DPS's who can get up in their opponents' faces and combo their Blast Meter to the breaking point. There's such a great variety to choose from that it will take a while for new players to decide who to main. Whatever play style you prefer from these wonderfully weird oddballs, you're sure to find it--no matter how unusual!
    Unfortunately, the major problem this game has is the Matchmaking; not that it was bad from the start since the Net Code is quite stable, but since the game has such a tiny player base skill-based matchmaking has recently been thrown out in favor of pairing Randoms, which can lead to some unbalanced teams. Newbies generally don't want to stay because the learning curve is so high, especially when they get paired with a Kayi main who can get 15 Knockouts while practically sleeping.
    I am very happy I discovered this game just before it was released. Nearing the end of the first season, it has been a wonderful and fun-filled ride improving my skills with most of the characters and playing the exclusive game modes and earning the exclusive cosmetics in the special events. I hope this community continues to grow around this truly special gem. But THAT part is up to you. Are you willing to take the chance and play a game that may be a little too challenging for your first few hours, maybe even get made fun of because you dared to support a game that is far from mainstream? Or are you willing to support creativity in the gaming industry and encourage small developers to take a chance so they can have a rousing success from their quirky little passion project?

    Mais um jogo, e entra facilmente na lista de 10 jogos genéricos
    Não muda quase nada de um Paladins, Overwatch, ou até mesmo Apex Legends

    Jogo ruim, é claro né, tinha que ser da EA.

    Jogo genérico, carissímo, gráficos e personagens horrorossos, prefiro jogar Free Fire do que isso.
