Top Critic Average
Rocket League is fast, fun and relentlessly enjoyable. The best football game without feet.
There's XP beyond that, and the promise of a scramble up the leaderboards, but I don't think Rocket League genuinely needs these things to hook you and hold you. Aside from the compact drama of the five minute matches, this is one of those rare games where the simple act of throwing a car around an arena is enough to keep you at it. Newton would approve and so would Batman. What more would you want?
Rocket League's colorfully absurd cars-playing-sports concept works so well because the energy of its arcadey gameplay meshes with its deep team-based strategy and variety of modes. It's exceedingly rare to find a multiplayer game that's welcoming and approachable for new players and so intricate that the best players can earn a living by mastering its depths. Rocket League is a golden example of turning a good idea into something truly amazing.
Rocket League transcends its chaotic mishmash of sports, racing and fighting to create an elegant and endlessly competitive game for the ages.
A superb multiplayer game that takes a very simple premise and crafts from it one of the best competitive arcade games in years.
Every game has highlight-reel worthy moments, which is amazing considering the five-minute matches
Rocket League delivers all the refinements and improvements befitting a sports sequel, and is a brilliantly boisterous and enthralling game in its own right.
After two and a half years of steady play, it's those little thrills that keep me coming back.
Rocket League survives its conversion to Switch with minimal wear and tear.
Easy to learn and fun to play, Rocket League is an example of how to make multiplayer gaming appeal to more than just the casual crowd.
