All in all, this was a very positive surprise. Rocket Arena is a delightful breath of fresh air in the increasingly saturated hero shooter genre, mixing elements from old-school shooters, 3D platformers, and even freaking Super Smash Bros of all games. It’s incredibly charming, fast-paced, easy to control, and also very fair with its in-game economy, without ever trying to convince you to purchase additional currency.
It fulfills the most basic requirement of a game in that it's fun to play, but it also has the learning curve and complexity that is needed to be considered a competitive game. It certainly doesn't hurt that the game is supposed to have free post-launch content in the form of new characters and maps. Throw in fantastic character and map designs and unique mechanics and you've got a very solid shooter.
Rocket Arena’s retro rocket romanticism aesthetics, playful music and cute and fun characters (super-freckled Rev being my favorite!) go a long way to make it easily approachable. However, despite the four main game modes, the nature of the gameplay feels limited. It’s easy to play and fun in short bursts, but that’s just it; in short bursts.
