I was afraid to try Rocket League (free on the PS4 for plus members this month) after reading about it causing fan/heating issues but massive internet hype swayed me.
To begin, I suck at this game. I suck so bad, you'd swear I practiced being bad at this.
Cool thing is, game is still a blast to play that really respects my time. This week I had zero disposable hours and found the 10-20 minutes (literally) I got to turn this puppy on each day to be very rewarding. I get some random "Mega Man man soccer" nostalgia while playing this for some odd reason which is a bonus. (NOTE: THIS GAME IS NOTHING LIKE MEGA MAN SOCCER, SAVE THE INCORPORATION OF A BALL REALLY)
The support of this product by the devs, making it free, giving out free DLC as an apology for server issues, and just clearly being dedicated to their creation shows here. This is, without a doubt, a cut above for an indie title.
+Cars (no personal interest) + soccer (rather play in real life)= Pretty darn fun and enticing.
+ My ps4 did not blow up
+ Gorgeous Stadiums and Soundtrack
+ Every match is rewarding by way of cosmetic unlocks.
+ excellent "cart racy" feeling gameplay (tight, intuitive)
+ feels freakin' awesome to hit the ball, the impact physics "feel" substantial
+ time well spent, be it 5 minutes or an hour
- I hardcore suck at this so bad I won't even play online yet. Clearly this game takes time to get decent at.
- Would have appreciated a little more cosmetic control of my car such as in mod nation racers. Forgivable though.
So anyone else giving this car/soccer hybrid a spin?
