    A multiplayer game that deserves more attention. With well designed maps great gameplay and lots of weapons and abilities for the heroes, this is one of the most enjoyable games of the genre we've tried this year. Too bad the community is so small that it's getting too hard to find a game.

    Rocket Arena is a fun game that offers a lot of features that players ask for all of the time in other games. You’ll have to ask yourself if you like this style of gameplay and the art style, but the game is well designed and a blast to play. If it goes free to play eventually, I think it can have sustained success.

    Rocket Arena is an admirably light-hearted shooter that soars when it comes to characters. The roster is full of versatile playstyles and memorable personalities that will draw you in, and the addicting gameplay could keep you there if you can get behind the floaty but satisfying combat. While the lack of content and underwhelming multiplayer suite doesn’t fully justify it not being free-to-play at the moment, things will only get better with time, and, fundamentally, Rocket Arena’s launch is worth the force of its trajectory.

    Rocket Arena can be quite enjoyable at the beginning, but its derivative gameplay and rather banal game modes cannot keep the player engaged for a long time at the current state of the game.

    As I played Rocket Arena, my enthusiasm for its gameplay drained while the sterile nature of it all gradually reared its ugly head. There's certainly some fun to be had but you likely won't enjoy it for as long as its genre competitors.

    Technically solid 3-vs-3-shooter aimed at a younger audience. Unfortunately there are no unique features found anywhere, be it weapons, abilities or arenas.

    Despite the handful of enjoyable hours Rocket Arena has to offer, it's not an investment worth considering. With microtransactions already up and operational alongside a premium price tag, it’s likely to find itself without a player base before too long. Rocket jumping can only take it so far.

    Rocket Arena has given me one of the greatest multiplayer experiences in a long while. If you liked the fun competitiveness of Destiny 1'sRocket Arena has given me one of the greatest multiplayer experiences in a long while. If you liked the fun competitiveness of Destiny 1's Trials and Black Ops 2 Ranked Play days, this game right here will give you those days back.

    The gameplay is fast paced and skill-based. Right now, there are characters that are stronger than the other. But if you're really good, it won't matter. You'll carry that W home.

    But hey, say if you want to just chill and have fun with your friends. Private matches are amazing. Especially with cross-play. Every Saturday night me and the boys hop on Rocket Arena and just go crazy. Yelling and calling out good plays. It's a real good time.

    Now for the monetization. Many people complain about the $30 price tag, but then I looked back at the price of Overwatch when it first came to PS4...it was $40. They forced you to pay the Origins Edition for a couple of skins. Yee Haw? We had to pay $20 extra for 5 lame skins(PC was $20)... But yeah let's move on from that abomination of a game. If I could refund it, I would do it in a heartbeat.

    So another good thing about Rocket Arena's monetization is the battle pass. Yeah every game has one now. It's the new wave. But in this game, you can actually earn premium currency (Rocket Fuel) to purchase the Pass. Rinse and repeat, for free! I very much appreciate that, because not many games are that nice to you.

    As for that price tag of $30, worth it. The game is a really fun experience through and through.

    Now for my complaints: balancing and game modes. Admittedly there could be more modes and touching up current modes like Treasure Hunt and Rocketball. But that's about it, honestly.

    9/10 - Highly Recommend

    Good graphics and Disney / Pixar style charters make this game unique in the market. However it's difficult to get into 3 v 3 matches becauseGood graphics and Disney / Pixar style charters make this game unique in the market. However it's difficult to get into 3 v 3 matches because no one is playing this game. Also it's system has problem by giving players 3 min ban for leaving game "After" your teammates already left.(Which it said wont give you ban on the screen.) Expand

Rocket Arena é ruim, repetitivo, chato, cheio de DLC e microtransação com menos de um mês de lançamento, e pior de tudo não apresenta inovação. Não recomendo essa porcaria e espero que a EA deixe de existir em breve. Expand
