11 Games Like Rocket League

Games Like Rocket League Our compilation of games like Rocket League lists other titles that use vehicles in a competitive manner or offer a unique way to play a traditional sport.

Rocket League is one of the most popular vehicle oriented games turning traditional soccer into a rocket powered car experience instead. The success of the title led to Rocket League also developing a basketball inspired game mode referred to as Hoops and an ice hockey themed Snow Day mode. Offering both single player and multiplayer modes your objective in both modes is to push the ball into the goal and score points. Game modes include variations from one vs one to four vs four with options for both ranked and casual games.

In addition to controlling your rocket powered car players can jump to perform a mid-air hit and collect speed boosts from certain points on the field. While both of these can facilitate moving the ball across the field the momentum you can also be used to destroy enemy cars, which will respawn after a short time. Lasting for a few minutes matches players are awarded points at the end of each match based on their actions which can be used for car customisation.

The games like Rocket League selected below offer a mixture of destruction derby style car games and sporting titles that approach traditional sport in unique and interesting ways.
