Rocket League

I thought this game looked fun when I first saw a trailer for it a few months ago, and having played it now, it’s even better than I was hoping. Yeah, sure, playing soccer while driving cars sounds incredibly weird and nonsensical, but it really is a blast to play, with the driving controls perfectly tuned for the rapid direction changes that you need to do. This is a great game, and if you’re on PS+ it’s a free download this month, so no excuse not to take it out for a spin.


I didn’t really know much about this game before playing it (it’s one of the PS+ free downloads this month), beyond that the screenshots I had seen looked pretty. Ends up that it takes a bit from Tempest, along with the idea of using the two analog sticks to control two separate entities (think Brothers). I’ve only played a few levels, so can’t say yet how much I really like it, but the 10-15 minutes I played were enjoyable enough.
