Rocket League is a physics based soccer game where players control rocket powered cars in order to hit a ball towards ones goal.
Pro Easy-to-use 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 the primary motions at the player's disposal. The more challenging aspect comes in the form of learning how to best use these motions when performing off-the-wall manoeuvres and in the air, making way for breath-taking replays.
Pro Exaggerated but exciting physics dimension
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.
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.
Pro Cross-platform multiplayer
This game initially released with PS4-Steam cross-platform multiplayer, and later extended this to the Xbox/Windows10. It's one of the few games on the market where you can play against people regardless of what platform they're playing on. Sadly, this doesn't extend to teaming up across platform (it still uses the native social platforms of each system), and communication with players on different platforms is limited to canned responses.
Pro Supports split-screen on PC
This is a rare feature for a PC game. You can therefore play with friends in the same room, which is made even 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 loss of detail.
