OlliOlli2

Even though I’ve played a few of them, I was never really that into the Tony Hawk games – or even the Skate series, which I admittedly liked better, the first one – but I was interested to play the first OlliOlli when it came out, as the 2D gameplay looked refreshing. I never got around to playing it, but thanks to the PS+ releases for March, I’m playing OlliOlli2 on PS4 (I downloaded the Vita version as well, but haven’t tried it yet) and so far I’m really enjoying it. It starts with the great soundtrack – more chill, less skate punk/rock – and a beautiful minimalist aesthetic that looks beautifult. Gameplay-wise, it does take a while to get used to things – I keep wanting to push the analog stick down when I land, instead of the X button – but the fact that I keep playing the levels over and over is a clear sign that it’s got me hooked.
