80/80 on my first try

Most soccer games are automated snooze fests. Now it may not look like a regular game of soccer but Rocket League forces you to take so much into account:

Angle and force of impact on ball

Timing and direction to jump and hit the ball

Dribble control

Positioning of your team mates

Intelligent centering to create play opportunities for your team

Judging distances

Physical blocking and disrupting of oponent players

No soccer game actually simulates the feeling of playing a real life game of soccer as well as rocket league does

It's probably the most fun I've had in any game in months.

FIFA does a decent job at a lot of these points but Rocket League just feels a ton more dynamic. I love it so much.

Football games like FIFA/PES simulates a game on tv. If you want to simulate playing football yourself, i would rather compare it to the modes where you create a player and control just him. You can probably adjust the settings so it feels less automatic :P

I love the game and i love that games like this gets an audience, but lets not discredit the real football games :P

I do love it atm but do think it will probably get boring quickly as there arent any different game modes.

I really hope they add some add ons to this game to give it some longevity.

I reckon a destruction type of game mode would be fun, sometimes i like driving around and just wrecking the other opponents.

Yeah, FIFA/PES just doesn't capture that raw, live feel of soccer that a game like Rocket League does. The frantic rush towards the ball, the missed shots, the confusion of players around you as the ball is tossed around..I really enjoyed Rocket League and I can absolutely see what you mean. Anyone who has played soccer, knows the feeling of having to constantly orient yourself about where the ball currently is, who's around you, doing the manual judgements of every single action and the feel of just missing a pass or a dribble as the ball flies past you.

Once FIFA gets a First Person Mode, I honestly believe it would make things a lot more different.
