    Overall, there’s a lot of fun packed into Rocket League, and this port to the Nintendo Switch manages to keep all of that intact. If you’ve never played, you absolutely should, and the Switch version of the game makes for a solid addition to Nintendo’s ever growing library.

    Rocket League is an indie success story, and to have it in the Switch's library year-one is terrific. Look at all the jaggies you like and mock the lower resolution the game runs at if you feel the need, but this is Rocket League, portable and it runs beautifully. Everything is here, nothing has been missed and there are bonuses for Switch owners not only with exclusive Mario cars and hats but also the ability to take it anywhere. A feature that cannot be overlooked. Rocket League is a really deep game. Following the clichéd easy to learn, hard to master approach holds Rocket League in good stead. You're going to want to put in the hours to be the best you can - but the only thing that's really going to stop you is sleep. You're not going to put this one down.

    Rocket League for the Nintendo Switch is a successful adaptation of a game that brings a simple yet enveloping gameplay which truly stands out in multiplayer. Thanks to its enormous range of multiplayer possibilities and an exceptional online functionality, Rocket League is set to become one of the finest multiplayer experiences available on Nintendo's newest system.

    Don't let the graphical downgrade distance you from a great experience. Rocket League on the go is as fun and addictive in Switch as in any other platform. One of the best multiplayer games on the Nintendo Switch.

    Rocket League is showing no signs of slowing down, and why should it? Psyonix's RC car-footie combo is an esports favourite, and now even more players can see what the fuss is all about on Nintendo Switch. A visual downgrade is acceptable given that this plays exactly the same as the other versions, with cross-play to ensure the pool of opponents remains large online. A strong recommendation for any Switch owner - even for those who have it on another platform! After all, what Rocket League fan wouldn't want to train and match up on the go?

    In the end, this is not my favourite version of Rocket League, but it is one that you can enjoy. The gameplay is identical to the other versions in most ways, but the graphics of the Switch version are ugly. The resolution is so low.

Being able to take this great game on the go is pretty...well great. To see a more fuller review of this game, check out my PS4 or Xbox One review of this game. I think the frame rate is lowered a bit for this version, and if you have more than 2 cars on screen, it seems to mess with the performance a little, but it's still great overall. Expand

    No puedo hablar del nivel competitivo, pero creo que eso no hace al juego en si, sino que es un complemento o un extra que viene por fuera.No puedo hablar del nivel competitivo, pero creo que eso no hace al juego en si, sino que es un complemento o un extra que viene por fuera. Hablando puntualmente del juego, sus mecanicas son muy entretenidas. Pasas un muy buen rato, incluso jugando solo. Claramente se potencia la diversión al jugar multiplayer y en eso el juego se comporta perfecto. La parte Online es dudosa su conexión, pero aqui no puedo establecer si es por culpa del juego o las conexiones en latinoamerica. Si tuviera que pensar en el juego incluido su servicio de servidores online, deberia darle quiza una nota mas baja, ya que la experiencia online puede ser frustrante. Pero como juego, eso un buen 8 Expand

There is a noticeable graphicalI'm not the biggest fan of sports games, but I still heavily enjoyed my time with Rocket League on Switch. There is a noticeable graphical downgrade on Switch compared to the likes of PS and Xbox, but you also get portability. The concept of cars playing soccer is so odd and insane, it works. Plus, there is a huge competitive league if you're willing to put in the work. The presence of loot boxes and DLC cars initially put me off, but they were implemented well enough to not be a bother. If you like sports games, then Rocket League is a great and unique entry in the genre, and well worth picking up sometime. Expand

    The price is cheap, and the support of Cross-Play is an advantage and also a disadvantage.
    Anyway this is good parties, multiplayer game.

    People need to know just how bad the switch implementation of this game is. After about 30 matches I literally created this account to makePeople need to know just how bad the switch implementation of this game is. After about 30 matches I literally created this account to make this review. I was fooled by good reviews. If you've played it on anything else, its unplayable. worst still you get lumped in with people on PC and PS. Its pixelated like crazy and almost impossible to see the ball across the field due to the pixelation on the switch screen. The frame rate is so bad and jumpy you cant hit the ball. I own it for PC and am double plat in solo yet on the switch version i cant even crawl out of single bronze. The problem is the frame rate and rendering is sooooo bad its literally unplayable. I have even played local matches against easy bots to make sure the problem was not lag, its not, the problem exists even in training mode. The ball is unhitable because of the poor frame rate. If you love this game on PC or PS, avoid it at all costs on the switch. You will only be met with severe disappointment and frustration. EDIT: came back to say it seems to run perfectly fine on the dock. Seems to throttle the system when hand held and is only unplayable handheld. Unfortunately I have both PC and PS4 so I would never ever in a million years want to play rocket league on switch anything but mobile. Totally useless purchase..... Expand
