    After watching gameplay of this on Twitch it looks like really good fun and supports up to 8 players online. It reminds me a lot of the old C64 game Ballblazer and is basically football with rocket powered cars.

    Out now on Steam for £14.99.

    I watched Lirik play this, looks very good, but I think the skill level is too high for my old hands :) This is also free on PS4 i think (PS plus).

    Free on Playstation Plus.

    It's a newer version of the PS3 Super Acrobat Rocket Powered battle cars or whatever it was called.

    Getting a lot of praise in the PS4 section.

    I will have to check if my PS+ account is still active if it's free on there, although saying that I have decided to buy it for the PC anyway.

    Just playing this solo at the moment and it is really good fun, although it appears the servers are currently offline anyway, hopefully they get that fixed ASAP. Great to read too that crossplay between PC and PS4 is confirmed. :thumbsup:

    Didn't realise it was PC. Grabbed it on PS4 however so will try it on that.

    Just bought this also. Looks great fun to play against some people, had enough fun against the bots.
    It appears to be limited to 60 FPS though from what I have checked so far.

    This really is great fun and even a old klutz like me can manage the controls on the pad. To be honest, the controls are really intuitive (for the pad at least, not tried K/M) and the remote control cars behave and handle as you'd expect them to so that makes things a lot easier. At the moment I am just running through a season and the AI seems very well done, when the other team is attacking, the other AI cars on your team come back and actively defend. I think this with a group of people against each other, or against randoms would be a riot, plus there are game modes for 1v1 up to 4v4.

    All that they need to do now is fix their server issues. :facepalm:

    Servers seem to have been "alright" so far, now that they are up. Though it did keep not finding games at one point until I exited and restarted.

    Those kids don't stand a chance :D

    Everyone needs to get this it's so much fun, don't worry about being crap as the game's pretty forgiving and everyone's still learning how to play so now is the time.

    edit: For those who use it you can get it on Steam Trades for just over a tenner.

    Sorry I had to disappear, one hassle after another landed and it was quite late when I managed to get back on. Good games though from the few I played and I am blaming any poor form on my part squarely on the dodgy internet connection I had. :p

    ha this looks awesome:), might be a reason to pre order the pad to get this free. (i wasnt going to get pad at first until hear thoughts) But certainly makes pad and game better value.

    It's what I did, I was going to wait for the pad reviews before getting one but decided with this game it was worth it. I had been wanting the game for a while but was waiting for it to go down to £10 thinking it might be one of those I play for a bit but eventually head back to CS but actually I regret not getting it sooner. It's a great game and well worth £15 and it's a great laugh with friends.

    How are people getting on with this now the season has launched?

    I keep flitting between unranked and Bronze 1.

    they have just reseeded everyone which takes into account your preseason ranking rather than chucking everyone into Bronze 1, Silver 1 or Gold 1. Which means the ranked mode is slightly better although the points won v points lost still sucks

    yeah i will get the DLC i guess although i hope they dont turn this into a cash cow DLC money grabbing game and at least expand the base game adding new features.

    The game would benefit from a proper lobby system with chat and league/tournament support

    I dont mind them doing it. Its about £2 quid, for something that is purely cosmetic. There is no need to buy it, but for what is turning into my most played game, i dont mind them offering this.

    Since the update, my 360 pad no longer works. Anyone know a fix, or have the same issue?

    The pad works with Batman, DMC etc

    The new mutators mode on this is a good laugh, especially with some mates. I nearly didn't buy this due to being cheap seeing it was 15 quid but 170h in and I'm still loving it
