I think I missed this one on the old Community Review but now it's time. Let's talk about this fantastic video game that I sort of skipped over, returned to and am now obsessed by. Let's talk about OlliOlli 2.
I've had a weird journey with OlliOlli 2. I came to it loving the concept: a version of Tony Hawk's Pro Skater, with elements of Skate, in what was essentially a 2D platformer on rails. My issue in the beginning was a weird one: it felt too shallow to me.
Boy was I wrong about that.
Turns out I just hadn't learned to play the game properly. As soon as I learned to link manuals into grinds it was all over. As soon as I learned that it was possible to one-trick an entire level I became obsessed. Once I learned you could revert into manuals and do 360 tricks?
Well, that was the moment when I started finding it difficult to think about any other game.
I love OlliOlli 2. Right now I love it so much that I find it almost competing with Bloodborne for my time. At the very least it's functioning perfectly as a 'the kids are still awake' video game. It's almost perfect.
What are your thoughts on the game?
