The game we're talking about is Rocket League.

But that's where we are wrong. Comparatively yes the community of Rocket League is smaller than that of csgo or dota2 but that doesn't mean it doesn't exist. Many players in India play Rocket League and there are many others who even play it professionally. Yes, Rocket League is a part of eSports India, and it is as much competitive as csgo or dota2. The game is fun, it is competitive, it's steam market price is cheap as well and it can run in a low grade pc/laptop as well. Let's know more in details about this game.
About The Game
Rocket League is a game which is particularly based on football theme, however there's a really amazing twist in this game, instead of a football players, there are cars. It's a football game as well as a racing game or we can say a mixture of both. Remember the soccerjam mod in cs1.6? It's pretty much similar to it, in fact it have more added plugins where you can make your car fly, you can make your car double jump and even do insane stunts with your car in-game.
In the game, there are 4 different casual modes like 1v1, 2v2, 3v3 & 4v4. Besides them there are many different modes such as ice hockey, trick shots, rumble etc where they have a bit different theme. For ex- In ice hockey they'll turn the weather into snow and instead of a football there'll be an ice puck.
Speaking about graphics and game animation everything is perfect about them. There are no glitches and animation effects are really cool. There are several different actions among which you can choose, such as animation for car boosters, animation of goal score etc. You can even customise your own car, spray paint on it and put different decals.
