    PS4/5: Rollerdrome

    When I saw the game title Rollerdrome it instantly got my hopes up. I had images of the film Rollerball, and the Amiga game Speedball.

    But here is the trailer.

    I like the cell shaded graphics. I'm guessing the devs were fans of Jet Set Redio. But it isn't a Speedball game from watching the trailer. More just an arena fps on rollerskates, unless I'm missing something.

    Only going to give it a go if it appears free on PS Plus or on Gamepass. Otherwise nope. Disappointed.

    If you haven't played a classic game in years, it's never too late to start!

    Seems like a missed opportunity to me, Rollerball yes, shooting no, just make it a sports game.

    I was also looking forward to Roller Champions but apparently it gets boring quite fast.

    Stylish graphical design, but the game itself doesn't appeal to me.

    Have you tried Knockout City? it's a bit like speedball but more of a dodgeball elimination game than an arena-base sport. It was fun for a bit.

    I'd love a modern Speedball. For some reason I got most hooked by the gameboy version - I played the hell out of it.

    Not heard of that. Will take a look.

    Never played the GB version of Speedball. Used to play SB2 on the Amiga a lot. Mashing the button at the ball release to take it the other team player and run for the goal. And those diagonal goal throws. Brilliant game. A lot of games these days over complicate things.
