We thought we’d be playing this months ago on Mac, but while delays mounted, Rocket League ($20) is more than worth the wait. It’s essentially cars playing soccer, and indeed, that premise is as much fun as it sounds. The rocket-boosted rides aren’t confined to the ground, either, as skilled players can blast into the air to make incredible skyward shots into the opposing goal.
It’s primarily a three-on-three game, although it can range between two and eight players, plus there are great hockey and basketball variants within. Online multiplayer is the biggest draw, along with split-screen play, although a single-player season mode is available to help you hone your skills. Rocket League might provide some of the most fun you’ll have on your Mac all year.
