"All-time favorite multiplayer game. I have roughly 2k hours in the game and my peak rank is GC3 (SSL soon!). This game is unique, unlike any other, and takes soooo much time to get good at. Really fun to play with friends and sometimes frustrating to play competitively."
"This game is really fun but takes a lot of effort to get good at. I really enjoy the game style but the community can be toxic (sometimes funny and sometimes not). It was my favorite game at one point but being good is really difficult and ranking up can be hard. "
"For my 20,000 Level 20 review...I shall do it.
I'm not good at it. I enjoy watching it more than playing it. I got it for free on PS+ when it first dropped and thought it was going to be some gimmick game disappearing overnight. My respect to RL and its passionate, talented community.
Update: And Smurf culture has me dropping this a star..."
"I only started playing this for the channel 3 events. It's such an incredible game and now it is free to play and cross-platform. I loved excite-bike soccer mode, and this just feels like a smooth modern and improved version of that. "
"I want to love this game purely on principal alone. The concept is great and well executed, the car designs are cool, and I love rumble mode. I getting your car to launch through the air like a space ship while also aiming at a moving target is a mechanic I'll probably never master."
"Played the game for a good few years and I've mostly enjoyed it throughout all of it. The only problem I'd have with it now is how heavily monitized the customization is but it doesn't affect gameplay at all. The community's got plenty of people in it and its not hard to start playing with it being free to play on most platforms. I recommend it but be aware that the microtransactions can be a bit egrigous. Have fun! "
"Can't say I've seen any other games like this one. I absolutely suck at it and can't pull off any fancy maneuvers for the life of me, but I'll go in every once in awhile and pretend to know what I'm doing. I might get the lucky goal here and there, but it's never planned."
"Pros: Fun, fast gamplay, great in groups with lots of possibilities for variety. The rocket pass is a one time investment.
Cons: The community at large is aggressively and increasingly toxic, matchmaking is busted and doesnt account for leavers and throwers. Every new update introduces bugs. Private servers are incredibly hit or miss.
TLDR: This game can be a ton of fun with the right group (shout out TDG), but falls off immensely when playing solo."
"The beauty of Rocket League is its simplicity. Once you make a game too complicated, anything can go wrong. I'm pretty sure you can build Rocket League in Unreal Engine 5 in about 26 seconds. It might even be a default template: "Car with controls in a box. Click to jump." But you don't really need more than that to make it a fun game.
BACK IN MY DAY you just hit the ball back and forth like football but now they've got all kinds of courses, so if you're looking for more of a challenge or annoyance, you can have it! Great game for co-op play with friends or the team at work."
"I first played this on my ps4 when it was free. Spent a good amount of time the first few months of the release playing and leveling up. I never could keep up with the highly skilled players so I ended up shelving it. Overall its a fun game."
"The first sports based eSport to remove RNG from the equation. Everything in game is a result of user input and/or the input of other players. A true physics based digital sport for the next generation of interpersonal competition. The reason I built a top-tier gaming PC and literally the only game in my Steam Library!"
"Fútbol is life! Honestly mixing rc cars and soccer seems crazy but works. I personally enjoy snow day (hockey). There are masters of their craft at this game and then there is me 😂 I only give it 4 because sometimes rando matches can be so toxic "
"I keep going back to this game every once in a while hoping i do better. After a minute into a game i realize i am still trash at this game, but its still a blast to play. The thing i like most about this game is the matches are so quick. You can play a quick game here and there or you can sit for hours and play. "
"One of those games that I thought I was more than decent at, but once I got online ... nope. So much fun, and wish I had more time to get into it like I want to to become more decent at it. Admittedly I've thought of getting back into it for the events hosted with this game. My kids love this game was well. My youngest just wants to hit the ball & my oldest understands scoring, but they love driving their car around & hitting people."
