Mygamer writes: "Rocket Ride is a great game for the XBLA. The simple, but addictive, gameplay mechanics make this a perfect fit for the downloadable platform. Whether you want to play different types of single player modes, co-op, deathmatch, and keep track of your listing on Leaderboards, this game has it all. It's a great title for 800 MS Points and is highly recommended. At the very least, check out the demo just to take a peak at the game's creative visual style".
