    Overall, there’s a lot of fun packed into Rocket League, and this port to the Nintendo Switch manages to keep all of that intact. If you’ve never played, you absolutely should, and the Switch version of the game makes for a solid addition to Nintendo’s ever growing library.

    Rocket League is an indie success story, and to have it in the Switch's library year-one is terrific. Look at all the jaggies you like and mock the lower resolution the game runs at if you feel the need, but this is Rocket League, portable and it runs beautifully. Everything is here, nothing has been missed and there are bonuses for Switch owners not only with exclusive Mario cars and hats but also the ability to take it anywhere. A feature that cannot be overlooked. Rocket League is a really deep game. Following the clichéd easy to learn, hard to master approach holds Rocket League in good stead. You're going to want to put in the hours to be the best you can - but the only thing that's really going to stop you is sleep. You're not going to put this one down.

    Rocket League for the Nintendo Switch is a successful adaptation of a game that brings a simple yet enveloping gameplay which truly stands out in multiplayer. Thanks to its enormous range of multiplayer possibilities and an exceptional online functionality, Rocket League is set to become one of the finest multiplayer experiences available on Nintendo's newest system.

    Don't let the graphical downgrade distance you from a great experience. Rocket League on the go is as fun and addictive in Switch as in any other platform. One of the best multiplayer games on the Nintendo Switch.

    Rocket League is showing no signs of slowing down, and why should it? Psyonix's RC car-footie combo is an esports favourite, and now even more players can see what the fuss is all about on Nintendo Switch. A visual downgrade is acceptable given that this plays exactly the same as the other versions, with cross-play to ensure the pool of opponents remains large online. A strong recommendation for any Switch owner - even for those who have it on another platform! After all, what Rocket League fan wouldn't want to train and match up on the go?

    In the end, this is not my favourite version of Rocket League, but it is one that you can enjoy. The gameplay is identical to the other versions in most ways, but the graphics of the Switch version are ugly. The resolution is so low.

    It was only by chance that i got Rocket league on the switch and decided to give it another try.
    Here's my thoughts:
    I absolutely love this game, it looks much better than i thought it would on switch - very very beautiful and it's runs incredibly smoothly. It's really nice how the devs made seasonal challenges in which you can pick up limited edition customizables. It's a good deal how you get lots of DLC's and the game for less than £20 though if you don't have that to spare i would recommend just purchasing it on the switch store. I have now ploughed 120 plus hours of my life into this game and still i continue to play it, along the way i have had great fun editing my cars and have collected many things like titanium white K2's, cristiano's and many other things that i don't have time to name.

    In conclusion this is one of my favourite online games of all time.

Sure they haveBUY IT: Since the games launch ages ago, they have done so much to the user experience. They have added endless customization. Sure they have also added the loot box keys and such which i have taken a point off for, however those aren't that bad compared to any of EA's antics. The game play it's self remains amazing, yeah i think they cleaned up the jumping mechanics, but that did only to further enhance game play and the cars behave more intuitively for it. All in all, if you never even thought of this game before, it's certainly worth the money. It clearly has support, and a loyal player base who will be playing for years. Expand

The game works well with the Switch, but it’s disappointing how they will introduce a season pass similar to Fortnite while you still pay $20 for the title. We will see how that one pans out but I doubt I will go for it.
    The problem I have with the Switch version is matchmaking can take way too long. In the same household I have never had this issue on my PC or PS4.
    Overall when you finally manage to get into a game it works well but also it is cross platform yet you cannot play online matches with friends on another platform, only private matches which is a bit pointless.

    People need to know just how bad the switch implementation of this game is. After about 30 matches I literally created this account to makePeople need to know just how bad the switch implementation of this game is. After about 30 matches I literally created this account to make this review. I was fooled by good reviews. If you've played it on anything else, its unplayable. worst still you get lumped in with people on PC and PS. Its pixelated like crazy and almost impossible to see the ball across the field due to the pixelation on the switch screen. The frame rate is so bad and jumpy you cant hit the ball. I own it for PC and am double plat in solo yet on the switch version i cant even crawl out of single bronze. The problem is the frame rate and rendering is sooooo bad its literally unplayable. I have even played local matches against easy bots to make sure the problem was not lag, its not, the problem exists even in training mode. The ball is unhitable because of the poor frame rate. If you love this game on PC or PS, avoid it at all costs on the switch. You will only be met with severe disappointment and frustration. EDIT: came back to say it seems to run perfectly fine on the dock. Seems to throttle the system when hand held and is only unplayable handheld. Unfortunately I have both PC and PS4 so I would never ever in a million years want to play rocket league on switch anything but mobile. Totally useless purchase..... Expand
