Rocket League Review: Fun And Captivating Game
Rocket League is a dynamic multiplayer game, where you play football. However, it is not a usual sport-simulator, where you have to control 11 players and fight for the ball. In Rocket League you play as a car. Matches usually last for five minutes; the maximum number of players in one match is eight. Rocket league is available for a download on Windows, PS4, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch, Linux and macOS. At the moment more than 40 million copies of the game have been sold.
Graphics – 5/5
Graphics in this game are gorgeous. Rocket League uses a 3D image, which runs on Unreal Engine. Every single model and part of the vehicle are nicely detailed. All the effects, such as sparks, explosions, and flashes look fantastic.
Moreover, the game is full of bright and saturated colours. That means that you are not going to be bored after a few matches. It is worth mentioning that the area behind the football field is colossal. Of course, you cannot drive there, but it is really nice that developers decided to fill empty space with beautiful buildings, parks, tribunes, etc.
Gameplay – 4/5
The game is full of interesting features. Developers added a great number of cars in their game. You can customize and upgrade every single auto. Vehicles’ characteristics here are almost the same, so you do not have to worry about their top speed, acceleration, and controls. Players can choose any model of the car they like and then redesign it. You can select various accessories for your car, or paint it in any colour you wish. Moreover, you have an opportunity to change the rocket trail, wheels, and other parts of your automobile. After every match players get random prices, such as wheels, trails, different accessories or even cars.
Unfortunately, developers did not add the chance to play with gamers on different platforms. That means, if you have Rocket league downloaded on Xbox One, and your friend has it on PC, you won't be able to play together. Maybe, in future Psyonix company will decide to add cross-platform lobbies to the game.
Controls – 5/5
Controls are easy to adapt to. You can also change them in the game setting and bind any button to any possible action. In the Rocket League game designers added a lot of different moves to make this game more dynamic. You can perform double-jumps, control a skid, ride the walls and so on.
Replay Value – 5/5
Rocket league is an online game, but you can also play it while you do not have an Internet connection. A player can select a number of bots and change their difficulty. Moreover, if the game is hard for you, players can always start a training mode to improve their skills. This game is fun and dynamic, so you won't feel bored while playing it.
Developers worked hard and managed to create a game, that a lot of people will like. They regularly update it and add different features to make Rocket League even more fun. A player will surely spend many hours playing this game with friends or without them. Moreover, every opened car or decoration will hold your interest.
