    Amazing, simply amazing. Rocket League has the perfect balance of fun and competitive gameplay and is a must for…Well anyone really.

    Rocket League executes a simple idea beautifully, with nuanced controls lending themselves to both skillful displays and screwball comedy. [Sept 2015]

    Rocket League turns an amazing and simple concept into a well executed game.

    Fast and thrilling matches, precise controles - Rocket League is a multiplayer heavyweight. Server problems are testing your patience though.

    Do you remember “Top Gear” episodes in which football matches were played using hatchbacks? The same idea is the cornerstone of Rocket League – one of those jewels that do not care for bells and whistles (though it does look great) and Kevin Spacey in the credits, instead focusing on squeezing every last drop of fun out of a simple concept. [09/2015, p.60]

    Rocket League is the perfect game for short sessions. Gameplay is quick and easy to understand, with nice graphics to boot. Lack of diversity is the game biggest issue - delight quickly turns into boredom.

    Most fun game of the year, easily.

    It's my GOTY above Witcher, Ark, or anything else. The replayability (it's easy to pick up but quite difficult to truly master), the fact it really does replicate the chaos of what an actual indoor soccer game feels like (something no other sports game has truly done with their sport choice). Best $20 I've spent on a game in a couple years. Gets even more fun with friends, even with server issues I don't care, the product is too fun.

    Oh, and a word to the wise: Just because you can hit it, doesn't mean you should! (just like RL soccer)

Who would be interested in such a thing! Here we are today where the game has surpassed all expectation, won several prestigious awards and truly has players gripped, like counter strike global offensive, you can't help but think "just one more game" and soon realise it is far past your bed time and you need to be up early tomorrow as a responsible adult should be.

    Pros
    · Good soundtrack
    · Cross platform Play
    · Social
    · Various Customizations
    · Addictive
    · Fun

    Cons
    · Case system to get rarest items.
    · Music does not play during matches.

    Overall I rate rocket league 10/10 with clean vibrant visuals, interesting game modes and a fair skill gradient/matchmaking system.

It's graphics are really nice, the gameplay? It is insane, all plays possibilities, you can't even imagine if you did not play it seriously... Just take a look at the pro players at youtube... The content is huge too, they are going to add asian/south american servers, and the game updated in less than a month and it is going to update again, with tons of new car add on, trophies etc. 10/10 Expand

The game bases itself around a soccer game with cars, and if you thought it stopped there, strap some rockets to those cars and you have the masterpiece that is Rocket League.

    The sensation of getting a goal in Rocket League is overwhelming and always makes you want to play more. I'd highly recommend it all!

Более интересных и захватывающих симуляторов я еще не видел, как по мне, так отличный номенант на лучшую игру в своем жанре в моем не провозглашенном списке. Все время, проведенное в игре, я провел с тонной удовольствия! Жаль только, что с не меньшим количество психов и нервов, уж сильно здесь много зависит не только от скилла, но и от капельки везения.
    Самое большое внимание здесь приковывается к соревновательной атмосфере с эпичной музыкой и звуками из экшенов 90х! Я уже позвал в эту игру троих и собираюсь звать народ еще. Если вы не можете решиться на покупку игры - решайтесь быстрее, а еще лучше зовите троих друзей и покупайте пак на четверых, так вы в минусе точно не останетесь. Игра очень сильно затягивает и бросать ее в ближайшее время я не собираюсь (как и мною приглашенные товарищи). Разнообразие "рингов" тоже не может не радовать, единственное, бесит Токио!!!
    Единственным, наверное, минусом в игре является малое количество элементов тюнинга, как-то уж совсем не густо, даже если учитывать все DLC.

    Ставлю 8 рокетов из 10 и рекомендую каждому попробовать этот шедевр!

However that 'heavy car' bug that was introduced around 2 or 3 months ago has been daunting me. Psyonix are too busy swimming in their pool of sweet, sweet, crate money to fix the game. Oh, and you can add horrible optimized servers and a disgusting community to the pack. Expand
