    It's a blast to play and it only gets better as skills improve over time and as the competition ramps up. It's a game that everyone, whether they’re big into sports video games or just can’t seem to get into them, will really enjoy.

    Rocket League is a pure videogame defined by an excellent mixture of its mechanics. It's extremely fun, addictive, one of the best competitive experiences of this year on PS4.

    Rocket League has the most addicting gameplay we experienced in a while now. Playing this game reminded us why we fell in love with gaming in the first place.

    Rocket League may only feel like a glorified minigame, but its wild, tense, and fast-paced gameplay makes it one of PS4’s best multiplayer experiences to date.

    Fast, simple and funny variation of football with devices shines especially in multiplayer.

    Rocket League does everything needed to create a kick ass sports game. It's simple enough to learn the mechanics in a few minutes, but also complicated enough to require several hours of play to understand the finer details. Those hours will certainly fly by.

    An incredible game created by incredible developers that care for quality and their fans. Psyonix have put so much effort into creating thisAn incredible game created by incredible developers that care for quality and their fans. Psyonix have put so much effort into creating this car football sequel and have delivered exactly what fans from the community have asked for. (And more!)

    The visuals are colourful, over the top and impressive.
    Physics and gameplay are perfect and the game plays just how it should.
    Loads of customisation items. Literally millions of different combinations.
    The online is very very stable.
    Various ways to play with friends including up to 4 player split screen.
    Cross play for PC and PS4.
    A season mode for offline play.
    Replay editor which also acts as a photo mode is a very welcome feature.
    Future support for the game confirmed, including DLC and free stadiums.
    Day one release on PlayStation Plus for free is a wonderful bonus and a very loyal move from Psyonix to their fans.

    This game is tons of fun and is the most fun I've had with a game in ages. You won't regret picking this up. Although you may never put it down.

    Rocket League aka Supersonic Acrobatic Rocket Powered Battle Cars 2 (SARPBC 2) is essentially a really good re-make of the first SARPBC whichRocket League aka Supersonic Acrobatic Rocket Powered Battle Cars 2 (SARPBC 2) is essentially a really good re-make of the first SARPBC which was my "go to" game for around 5 years!!!! They have kept true to their original design concept = Awesome.

    I would say it is essentially the same game but with improvements across the board. The graphics are more detailed, the Physics and realism of the game play are true to the original. The Arena's are all similar in shape to the most popular pitch in SARPBC (Urban) but they do vary in weather conditions and have both day & night play. I have heard they are developing additional Arena's of different shapes which is cool.

    The matchmaking system wants to match you to similar skilled players, whereas in the original you could be matched against the best players and get spanked :( or against noobs and spank them = boring.
    So now with similar skilled players there is always the competitive edge that makes you want to do better and have "JUST ONE MORE GAME !!!!"

    There were several different cars in SARPBC with only 4 different paint jobs for each car. Now there are a staggering amount of customisations available from different wheel trims to HATS and even more cars to choose from !!!! So you can have the coolest looking car on the pitch.

    Offline mode previously allowed you some skills training to learn the ropes and this is much the same now with Rocket League. However now you can try your skills against the bots in either Exhibition maps or Season Mode. Having completed 2 seasons (9 weeks & 18 weeks) it is very compelling and challenging. Yes the Bots make silly mistakes but in my experience playing SARPBC so do a lot of players. With the overwhelming success of Rocket League I feel confident that Pysonix will be improving Bot skills making it even more challenging.

    Overall I'm very impressed with Rocket League. In SARPBC it took me a couple of games to grips with the basics, several hours to get to a decent level and having played at least 10 hours a week for 5 years of SARPBC I was still learning how to score that FreeStyle Aerial Goal!!!

    I'm very much looking forward to developing my skills in Rocket League. BRING IT ON !!!!!

You can team up with friends and have a super fun time. The controls are hard to get used to and control, but once you get the hang of it, your good. The customization for your cars, are fun to unlock. Although you might find yourself raging at your sometimes stupid teammates that are really bad at the game. Expand

    Football with cars, actually it's giant ball with tiny cars. Maybe it sounds stupid but Rocket League is an awesome game. It's very addictive,Football with cars, actually it's giant ball with tiny cars. Maybe it sounds stupid but Rocket League is an awesome game. It's very addictive, I just kept saying one more match, and suddenly it's very late and I got to go to work tomorrow, but just one more match. This game is one of my favorite online games, and I'm not even good in this game. Also there is flag of my country, and I got my first PS4 platinum trophy, yeeey.
    Offline isn't very interesting, there is only exhibition and season modes, and bots are kinda stupid, so that is my biggest problem with the game. Also there isn't much variety in stadiums and cars.

    The 0 score will come as a surprise because I love this game, my review is catered to Epic Games and their horrendous takeover of the gamesThe 0 score will come as a surprise because I love this game, my review is catered to Epic Games and their horrendous takeover of the games economy. Items that costed 2-3 keys (2-3 dollars) now cost 1200-1500 credits (basically 15 dollars)? It’s utterly ridiculous. I knew Epic Games was a joke that doesn’t care about consumers at all, I just hoped it wouldn’t become this bad on my favorite game. The prices need to be adjusted, that’s a minimum. But Epic knows the prices are ridiculous so they’ll change them after community outrage and then play like they’re the good guy and gain fan favor. If you love video games do not fall for this, Epic know it’s ridiculous, they did it on purpose just to fix it later. Epic have proved again for the 100th time that we are a bottom line, not a human with a heart and soul that got into videogames as a kid because we thought they were fun. The days of coming home from school and getting to play your favorite game without predatory business practices being shoved down your throat are over thanks to EA, Epic, Activision etc. This is the pinnacle of what videogames have become, we are all numbers to them, please boycott Epic games or at least their predatory practices Expand
