Rocket League (PS4) (5)

In Summary, This is an awesome arcade experience. Anyone can pick up the controller and get stuck in, Its so straight forward and simple. Finally a game that sticks to the old rule of games are fun. I see the game very much like a Sensible Soccer on wheels type of deal. Nothing more needs to be said really. You get a solid fun arcade game, can be played with friends or bots, cars are awesome as are the handful of stadiums. To be honest no need to read the reviews, Go buy it.

Gaming since the Atari 2600, I enjoy the weirdness in games counting Densha De Go and RC De Go as my favourite titles of all time. I prefer gaming of old where buying games from a shop was a thing, Being social in person was a thing. Join me as I attempt to adapt to this new digital age!
