Rocket League is the game all the cool kids are talking about.
Are you a cool kid? Are you
I've played a little bit of Rocket League and one thing is for sure: I want to be playing more Rocket League. I need to be playing more Rocket League. Because Rocket League is the best.
That is my expert opinion.
In a month that's supposed to be about playing catch-up, reducing piles of shame, Rocket League has come along and just ruined all of that. Sorry Batman, sorry Geralt. Back of the line. I've only got a spare 15 minutes and I'm playing Rocket League.
The high concept is glorious: cars playing soccer basically. But the real beauty of this game is in the execution. Everything feels smooth in Rocket League, everything feels polished, every movement is rewarding. And scoring a goal in this game? It's just the best. This game is the best.
My favourite part of Rocket League: its accessibility. There are no rules to learn really, no complicated controls. This truly is one of those rare beats: easy to learn, difficult to master. There is potential for Rocket League as a competitive endeavour, but the skill cap increases in interesting way. It's about your positioning, team work, your timing, your understanding of the game itself. In a strange way it might be one of the most accurate soccer simulations ever created.
Rocket League is currently free for those of you on PlayStation Plus. Seriously, you should be playing this game.
