    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)

It’s a unique concept and has been executed perfectly. It’s one of those games where you have an absolute blast with friends, but is still so much fun even if you have to solo queue. There’s plenty of creative game modes that the devs have made, but there’s also TONS of maps made by the community, from custom game modes to maps specialized in training a certain aspect of your game. The in game music is great and goes along well to the flow of the game. The community can be toxic at times but for the most part it’s easy to ignore those players. This is an absolute steal at sale prices, but even if it’s not on sale I would still highly recommend picking it up. Expand

    Rocket League is a phenomenal multiplayer game, that goes to near perfection in terms of design, gameplay and physics. It's an extremelyRocket League is a phenomenal multiplayer game, that goes to near perfection in terms of design, gameplay and physics. It's an extremely simple game, but satisfying nonetheless. Everything about this game is simple and fun and for 20 euros, it's a steal right away.
    Gameplay: The whole concept of this game is about two teams that drive cool and imaginative cars that fight against each other to score goals by using the physics of their cars to kick a giant glowing ball. It's pretty fun and smooth like peanut butter. It's design is near perfect. And there is 4 modes that you can play, which are: 1vs1 (where only you can play against another player), 2vs2 (where you with a teammate can play against two other players from the other team), 3vs3 (where you with two other teammates can play against three other players from the other team) and 4vs4 (where you with three other teammates can play against four other players from the other team). All of the modes feel perfectly designed. Also, you can play against and with bots, which is still fun, where bots provide most of the time a good AI. But there is one flaw. This game isn't a game that you should play without friends, because if you do, you will get easily bored, because it tends to become repetitive. Yes, the flaw is the repetitivness. I like the car customization; it gives a reason to keep playing the game. But, guys, the many ways you can kick the ball is staggering, I mean, you can do those fancy aerial kicks, even though I perform them very rarely, but many pros can do that. There is tons of kicks you can do and they are oh so satisfying to perform, because of the perfect physics that this game has. (8/10)
    Engine: It looks visually smooth and it's perfectly designed. The engine here shines brightly, not only because of the very good graphics, but more because of the perfect physics. The physics here are so slick, so stunning its overwhelming. The maps are well designed and the car models are just beautiful. (10/10)
    Sound:
    A very solid soundtrack and nice sound effects. (10/10)
    Replay value:
    This is a mixed bag. If you'll play this game with friends, this game is surely awesome during every match. But if you'll play alone, be prepared to face a slight boredom after 50 matches, because it does show the repetitivness of the game more than it does when you're playing with friends. (7.5/10)
    So, Rocket League is a fantastic game and real achievement when it comes to it's engine, and also providing one of the smoothest gameplay out there. BuY THIS GAME! (8.9/10)

Epic is notoriously awful with even the most basic of things, security is a big issue, and I'm not accepting being suddenly forced to make an account with this extremely scummy company in order to play a game I've owned for years.

    Epic's not getting my details. Tencent can burn in hell, and so can Tim Sweeney.
