Hitting the PC and Mac today is Devolver Digital and Roll7’s sequel to one of the best-receive skateboarding games in years, OlliOlli 2.
It still seems crazy to me that literally the best and most fun skateboard title around is an arcade game at heart, and not one of the better known and established franchises. That’s not to say that OlliOlli doesn’t have a lot of the bells and whistles that you’d expect however.
You’ll find tons of tricks at your disposal here, but you’ll find them set against super-imaginative and cartoony stages and completely off the rails (sorry) gameplay. The original game won all kinds of awards too, and is a critical and fan darling, so if you’re a follower of the latest skating game to set the world on fire, then you pretty much should take a serious look at what’s on tap for the sequel. And if you’ve yet to play, well, there’s no time like the present.
OlliOlli 2 is available right now on the PC (Windows and Linux) as well as the Mac. It’ll cost you $14.99 USD for the launch window too, so there’s no time like the present to div right in and get to grinding and kickflipping.
