Games like Rocket Wars are honestly getting hard to review without a bit of a jaded tone. I’m thrilled that this modern era and indie developers have helped to revive local multiplayer into being more fun with a variety of options to choose from but at the same time having played so many it’s hard not to note so many of them have become hard to differentiate. While Rocket Wars plays well and at least features a few more interesting modes like one where you’ll work to defend your goal while destroying the ones belonging to your competitors there’s just not a lot otherwise setting it apart. You’ll fly, try to collect power-ups, attempt to work some technique to conquer your foes… and then see who the winner is, and that’s nice, but there’s really nothing else fresh that it offers that will give it longevity. The price is at least right, just if you’re in the market for a game like this be sure to review your options since there are several out there in the same general space.
