    An esports-ready success needing a sizeable audience. [July 2018, p.81]

    Laser League is phenomenal. It’s easy to pick up, thoroughly appealing in its style, and dangerously captivating.

    Laser League is a masterclass of videogame design. As simple as playing with one button, but its depth is perfect for a competitive game. Roll7 has delivered one of the most addictive proposals of this generation.

    When you find yourself in the zone, Laser League is a joy to play. Controls are as straightforward as they come and the game's rules are easy to follow, meaning anyone can pick up a pad and join in. However, the depth that comes with the various character classes, their abilities, and power ups is surprising. This is classic "easy to learn, difficult to master" territory, in other words, and whether you're playing online or offline, it can be excellent fun with a few friends.

    This game lets us rediscover the pleasure of enjoying ourselves plunging into a lively competition, thanks to repetitive and easy techniques besides many different tactics, so as to keep us really concentrated, almost hypnotized. It will warm up the hearts of those who are longing to rediscover a local multiplayer gam, whose contents are undoubtedly beautiful.

    A beatuful game that deserve more attention from all the players out there. A little gem with so much wasted potential at the moment.

    Laser League is typically the kind of game which is enjoyable for a few minutes, before it reveals its own weakness: repetitivness, mostly due to a lack of depth. Which is sad, because its main idea is really cool.

    Made a account to counter the needlessly bad reviews- This game is a absolutely compelling and unique multiplayer experience!!! It isMade a account to counter the needlessly bad reviews- This game is a absolutely compelling and unique multiplayer experience!!! It is refreshing to see something different multiplayer wise as innovation seems to be lacking, usually, in this category of gaming. Laser league nails the "easy to pick up, hard to master" of games like rocket league, with visuals reminiscent of Tron, and plenty of customization and unlockables. Disregard the 0 from "ColbyTurkey", the game runs perfectly. Give this game a shot, it is GREAT! Expand

It's beenThis game accomplishes all its purposes and goals, and it does so excellently. It's super fast-paced, thrilling and exciting game. It's been ages since I had so much instant fun playing a game. A very simple set of rules that produce very complex, exciting and addictive results that even casual gamers can get instantly hooked to. Also, it has provided me *the BEST COUCH CO-OP I've had since the NES years* which, also reminds me of how much fun you could have then with games that were so simple yet so engaging. I'm not much of a gamer, I've never subscribed to PS+ since I'm not that into it but, man, this games is so fun to play with people that it even made PAY for a PS+ sub just to keep playing it with actual human beings (it's just not the same against AI, is it?). I do encourage everyone to try it. Expand

    Really great competitive and fun game with great potential.
    It just need 3 things to be the next big game that everybody plays.
    1- Continues support and free updates with more maps, player classes and modes.
    2 - Online Co-op with 2 players on the same console competing with other players online
    3- Nintendo Switch release with cross-play between Xbox, PC and the Switch.

    To me a must-have game. Just wish the developers will continue to update and add to it.

    Laser League is an instant classic, a game that takes you back to the golden era of simple and addictive arcade games.

    It's ridiculous how much depth in gameplay you can get from a game that makes use of just one action button. A testament to Roll7, one of the most imaginative and creative indie developers out there. They've really done it again.

    Both the intense local couch multiplayer with some friends, or the more e-sportsy online multiplayer mode for progression unlocking and leaderboard bragging are an absolute blast. Loving it!

    *Been playing it regularly since release and I have not experienced a single glitch or any performance issue, the game seems pretty stable to me.

    A brilliantly-designed and executed multiplayer thrillfest.

    Laser League is, quite simply, an excellent game. It is very easy to grasp the basics and have fun, but the gameplay also holds tremendous depth. Multiple classes with unique abilities and perks leave room for much strategizing and synergizing, but it is the gameplay at its core that is so thrilling and tactically brilliant. No two matches will ever be the same, despite utilizing the same maps. As laser-nodes change hands, the battlefield morphs in intoxicating and surprising fashion.

    This is a game where you must always be on your toes. Reflexes are important, yes, but what the game rewards more than anything is quick-thinking and awareness.

    On PS4, the game runs great and does not exhibit performance issues of any kind. My only real complaint is player-count at launch. In the evening, it is pretty easy to find matches, but at off hours you can find yourself matched with some AI. The AI puts up a real challenge, but this is a game deserving of a serious following. One can only hope that this game gains the traction it deserves.

    Laser League is a difficult game to describe but it’s basically an online multiplayer game in which players, or teams, run around an arenaLaser League is a difficult game to describe but it’s basically an online multiplayer game in which players, or teams, run around an arena attempting to activate nodes that project a wall of light of their colour. These walls vary in size and in the way they move and if a player is hit by a wall of the opposite teams colour they're eliminated (although they can be revived by team mates). The last team standing wins.

    Despite that complicated sounding explanation the game is actually pretty simple in practice and it’s easy to pick up the game and get straight into the online action. At first Laser League is a fairly enjoyable experience but even after just an hour or so my interest began to wane. I've seen comparisons being drawn to the hugely successful Rocket League, a game that also first came to the public's attention as a PS+ offering, but whereas Psyonix title gradually revealed hidden depths I feel as though I've already seen everything this game has to offer.

    I don't think they'll be many people still playing this in a few months’ time...
