Now this is what I'm talking about! I wish I had discovered this one earlier.
Thanks to my friend Scott for giving me this game!

This is an awesome game I'm glad you finally got to enjoy it. This is one of my favorite games this gen as well. Nice review!

Having played "car soccer" in other games, I wasn't too excited about this one. After all the buzz it's gotten recently, though, I'm definitely going to pick this up once I finally get a PS4.

On a side note, Critic, if you're looking for another budget priced game with a co-op arcadey flavor, you should try Overcooked. Two of my favorite YouTube gamers tried it, and it looks way more fun than I ever thought a cooking sim would be!

I played this at my brothers house. What I appreciated was the ability to pick up on it in 30 seconds. That's a rarity among games that want you to go through a 10 minute tutorial to learn how to play.

It really does feel like a 'throwback' game. You can just have a buddy over, pick up a controller, and have them playing proficiently in about 2 minutes. Quick gameplay, simple controls, split screens, it's like the way video games used to be! I also like that you can play online pretty easily as well cross-platform; I have the game for the PC and my son has it for the Xbox One, and we played several coop matches when he was home from college last time that took us all of about 15 seconds to set up.

I was listening to the soundtrack on the title screen and I love it!

Would like to get a CD version if possible, but will probably just download from itunes.
Good stuff.

Still wish they played this music during the game!

I went ahead and bumped this up to an A. It's my favorite PS4 game, with the best multiplayer in recent memory.
