Roll7 has just released OlliOlli2: Welcome to Olliwood on PlayStation 4 and PlayStation Vita. The game is a sequel to OlliOlli, and continues in the same style. OlliOlli2 is a side-scrolling skateboarding game with a very unique control scheme.
The player uses the left analog stick to execute tricks, the trick being determined by the motion that the analog stick is moved. To land this trick, the player must press the X button at a precise moment upon landing, or otherwise watch the character suffer and force the level to restart.
The game, much like its predecessor, is incredibly addictive and keeps you wanting to try again for a bigger score. We sat down to play some of the game live and see how the transition to a sequel went. OlliOlli was one of my favorite games from last year, and it’s safe to say that the sequel will be one of my favorites in 2015.
