OlliOlli 2 Gameplay Review

I'm playing OlliOlli 2, a skateboarding platform game by Roll7 and Devolver Digital.

The game features a number of different game modes, including a career mode where levels are unlocked, shorter-length “spots”, online challenges, and local multiplayer. Tricks are performed by rotating the left stick on a gamepad and then letting go to perform the stunt. In order to land, the “A” button must be pressed right before reaching the ground. Holding the stick down will grind along a rail, while pressing left will perform manuals to string tricks together. Finally, the triggers can be used to rotate. OlliOlli 2 features a very challenging assortment of hazard-filled levels; simply making it to the finish is difficult, as almost constant perfection is required to avoid the obstacles. For the platform game connoisseur, OlliOlli 2 provides a challenging mix of skill-based, fast-paced action.
