The game play falls on the footsteps of the prequel and features rocket powered cars and soccer. The main aim of each team is to hit a ball, much bigger than the cars, towards the other team’s goal area. Points are awarded to the team which succeeds to do so. The curved corners of the pitch ensure that no momentum is lost during the game. It also saves one from reversing the car to get back in place. The physics engine used in the game is not the most realistic one but it does give way to some pretty solid maneuvers. The buoyancy and the bounce of the ball give way to varying projectiles. Upon a goal being scored, the ball explodes and causes the cars to be pushed back too. Boosts can be used to enhance one’s momentum while being already in the air. Two teams compete each other in a single game session. Each team has three different cars, which are the same in terms of performance. There aren’t a number of elaborate rules. The rewards include amusing cars, customization and other cosmetic accessories. The time period for each match session lasts about 5 minutes. The players can have up to four competitors on each team. The opponents are computer generated in the single player mode of the game and are replaced with real life players in the online version.
