Re: What do you think of this year's game?

Agreed, I have seen a lot of defense in Rebound Rumble! In many cases, it is very effective.

I simply love this game. It has given me more "OH MY GOD!" moments than any other game I can remember. Seeing a triple balance win a match by one point. Watching balls scored so rapidly they jam into a net. Seemingly every match has a dramatic last second "will it or won't it" balance moment. Human player hail mary's that turn a tied match.

So far it has already pulled to the front of my "all time" list, and that's before District/World Championships/IRI season.
