OlliOlli 2 is all about failure and 'one more run'


Elan Vita

I was real into OlliOlli 2 last month. Skate was a surprise, that I could actually still enjoy a skateboarding game in the post Pro Skater world and OlliOlli 2, Roll7’s demade 2D skater, served as a second surprise.

The embarrassing bails (skateboard term) and instant reloads turned, “Let me just pick up my Vita and do one run” into “I need to move my Vita away from my work desk or I will play this in 30 minute chunks.”

Losing a several million point, whole level combo on a sloppy landing at the finish line is disheartening, but I’d always go right back for one more run.
