Rocket League: Why it is so Good?
There is no doubt that when it comes to multiplayer games, Rocket League is the best online experience to play now. This is, of course, going to be disputed by many gamers that prefer other experiences, such as Call of Duty or Fortnite, but Rocket League is one example that stands out from its competitors due to its accessibility. Virtually everyone can play it, and this kind of openness is only seen in other great quality games such as Minecraft. When it comes to pure fun, Rocket League is unmatched, and it is especially enjoyed when a group of friends are available to play with.
Multiplayer games have long been enjoyed by the community given the benefits they offer to most players. Some of the most memorable experiences in people’s lives will often be things that have happened socially, as they are much easier to remember compared to activities done solo. The recent pandemic ensured that many had to stay at home and face the fact that their favourite venues were closed. In response to this, many people would have gambled online, find some great options at maximum casinos, though many more would have enjoyed playing multiplayer games. Rocket League stands as one of the most popular multiplayer experiences at the moment, and many gamers would have turned to it to get through this period of isolation.
As Rocket League went free to play last year, it has attracted a whole new player base that has only started to get to grips with the game. Those who have never heard of the game before will be interested to know of the unique combination it features which creates some of the best gameplay experiences possible at the moment. Denoted ‘Soccar’ players will find the basic objective of games the same as soccer in that they must strike the ball into the goal by getting past the defending team. However, this comes with a twist – instead of people, players are given a car equipped with rocket-powered thrusters instead. This leads to some impressive moments in-game as players can use the boosters to score a wide range of impressive goals by flying through the air and flipping into the ball.
Rocket League has been going for a while now, and in that time, Psyonix have refined the game to create a great playing experience. Players who play the game for the first time will experience fast loading and queue times, an impressive soundtrack list, and fully customisable cars and profiles. The car customisation though is a standout, and players can earn different cosmetics for some of the most attractive cars in the world. This is because the cars in-game are typically designed on already existing models, meaning players can use a Lamborghini Huracan, Nissan Skyline or even the Batmobile in-game.
The game also has a rich competitive scene, and those players who wish to get better at the game can watch matches and become awe-stricken about the things that are possible when full mastery of the game mechanics are achieved. Playing Rocket League is a wholly positive experience and should be tried by everyone at least once.
