Rocket League is a cross-platform arcade racing game with vehicular soccer simulation by Psyonix. In the game, you have to play rocket-driven cars to hit the ball into the opponent's goal. There are both local and online multiplayer modes. You can download Rocket League for PC, Mac, Linux, XONE, PS4, and Nintendo Switch.
Graphics – 4.5/5
Rocket League game developers used Unreal Engine 3. Though it's a rather old ecosphere, it allowed them to create a vibrant, juicy soccer universe with toylike rocket cars. It's a pleasure to come back to the same arenas every time as they look alive and welcoming. On the other hand, you may notice minor weaknesses of the physical engine. Sometimes cars don't give you appropriate feedback.
Gameplay – 5/5
In general, Rocket League gameplay is a combination of an arcade racing game with soccer simulation and demolition derby. Your primary mission is to control a rocket-engine vehicle and kick a giant ball towards the opponent's goal. Similarly to traditional soccer, you should also protect your goals, but there are no classic roles. All players are allowed to do anything to win. However, it's wiser to use voice chat to apply a strategy.
Besides the soccer mode, you can play basketball and ice hockey. Another exciting mode is Dropshot. The rules are rather sophisticated. There are no goals, but the ball gets more and more electrified with every in-air kick. You have to charge it enough to make it break the tile-cover and touch the ground under the field. When you manage to do it, you score one point and repair one tile on your side of the field.
Controls – 5/5
Rocket League latest version received updated controls. They don't differ much but provide you with more feasible feedback. For this Rocket League review, we tested Switch, PS4, and PC versions. Both PC and PS4 versions allow you to play with a gamepad, which is excellent. Switch version is slightly better as you can divide the controller in two for split-screen co-op play.
Replay Value – 5/5
Rocket League full game has basketball, soccer, hockey, and Dropshot modes. It's similarly exciting to play against the AI and real opponents online. You can also get a monthly Rocket Pass to take part in limited challenges and specific multiplayer events. Due to the cross-platform play support, you can compete with all friends, no matter what computer or console they have.
Rocket League arcade game is a great party entertainment as well as a gorgeous teamplay cybersport discipline. It's available for a wide range of platforms, allowing players around the world to co-op without any hardware limitations. Rocket League system requirements are rather low with only 2GB RAM and 896MB video memory. Performance quality on consoles is similar on all devices. Switch version doesn't lower the quality of visual too much.
