I’m not a fan of car games, and I’m not a fan of football games, and I’m not a fan of online multiplayer games, so this seemed like the easiest Bin ever.
So why can’t I stop PLAYING IT
Rocket League treats the laws of physics more like suggestions than rules, and it works really well. Sure, cars can double jump. Three-point turn on a wall? Sure. Holding boost while doing a backflip lets you fly? Of course!
I’ve only played with bots so far, and I definitely feel like it’d be a blast with real peeps, but beyond Team Fortress 2 I’ve never stepped into the murky world of online random matches. I’ll wanna play with friends I know before I do that.
Fin or Bin:
One thing I’ve already noticed is there’s a lack of variety. The arenas all seem to be essentially identical mechanically, and I don’t know how long the standard ‘soccar’ game mode can hold my attention without some variance in the way it works- obstacles, different objectives, anything. That was what kept me playing TF2 for over 3000 hours, and it will determine how long it takes me to be Finished with Rocket League.
A lot of people probably got this free with their graphics card (me too!) and immediately decided it wasn’ their kind of thing (me too!). I would say, if you already own it by some method, definitely give it the hour of play. Otherwise, worth the jump if you have friends you can play with, and could possibly be a huge timesink online if you enjoy that.
