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.

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 is simple in concept - it's basically soccer with cars - yet it works brilliantly as a multiplayer game. It's incredibly easy to pick up as a beginner, but learning the intricacies of its controls takes many, many hours. And doing so is a thoroughly enjoyable and rewarding experience.

Rocket League was great back when I got to preview it, but having more time with it really made it clear just how much the developer Psyonix has managed to zero in on what's fun about the experience. It has a very limited set of modes currently, and the single-player feels a little flat; but the multiplayer is glorious, fast paced fun, with short explosive play sessions that you just want to keep coming back to, with plenty of amazing moments where you won't believe you—or another player—managed to make that shot.

I didn't go in expecting much from Rocket League since I'm usually not a huge fan of driving and sports games. Instead of walking away with a confirmed bias, Psyonix's laser-focused concept gave me something fun to whip out the next time I have friends over. I imagine with a bunch of awful beer and willing companions, we'll have a great time. What's next, will I enjoy a game that mixes Metroids and Soccer? We'll see.

Rocket League arrived at Nintendo Switch last year, capturing all the fun, tight controls and gameplay from the previous versions, not without losing on the way part of its visual power (effects and textures are a little bit lower here). It's physical release an insane amount of content, although not all the DLC its included (neither via voucher).

Rocket League on Nintendo Switch is an amazing experience and we can carry our game wherever we want. Even though its graphics could be better when in portable mode, this game means hours and hours of entertainment.
