Ranked in these QuestionsQuestion Ranking
Pro Exciting physics dimension give a delightful sense of exaggerated abilities
The physics element of the game slightly bends reality, making way for a more thrilling experience where everything seems to be behaving as though there is less gravity. This means that cars can somewhat fly around if they hit one another or go up ramps. This makes for gameplay that gives the player a feeling of super abillitites in that they are no longer abiding by the laws of gravity.
Pro Clear objectives keeps the focus on the gameplay
Get the ball in the net, soccer at it's simplest. This game is physics driven, using different cars as players, making it a fast-paced and exciting game with a basic underlying objective. Being easy to understand, just about anyone can get the hang of the game after a single play session.
Pro Great for quick play sessions
Each game has a time limit of 5 minutes, paused only when one team scores and the ball is reset to mid-field. By keeping each session short, the game works well for people that want to play a quick game without getting drawn in to a longer objective.
Pro Split Screen on PC
A rare feature for a PC game, you can play with friends in the same room, made easier with wireless controllers. Obviously a larger monitor would make this experience more enjoyable, but even on a 20 inch screen it is playable with minimal detail loss.
Pro Simple controls
Whether you use a controller or keyboard and mouse, the controls are fairly simple. You are driving a car pushing a ball around, with forward, reverse, boost, power-slide and jump as your only real abilities to learn. The difficulty comes in learning to use these abilities to perform in air and off the wall maneuvers that will make for breath-taking replays and make the unexpected play.
Pro Customization of cars is creative and fun
With DLC there are quite a few cars to choose from, including the Delorean from Back to the Future. The player can create a customized car with countless possibilities, ranging from choice of paint scheme, color, paint type (gloss/flat, etc.), wheels, boost color, hat, and antenna toppers.
Con Match making can be slow at times
Especially if you're a higher tier player it can take a while to find a suitable opponent.
