First Impressions – OlliOlli: Epic Combo Edition
OlliOlli: Epic Combo Edition is a 2D arcade game from Roll7. The Epic Combo Edition consists of the original game (which came out in 2013) and the sequel OlliOlli 2: Welcome to OllieWorld. I had a chance to check out the OlliOlli: Epic Combo Edition at E3, which will be available on PS4.
The game features 2D side scrolling levels where boarders perform a vast variety of movies. You will grind and board your way through hundreds of different levels. The levels are fun and features a pixelated type of art design, which I really liked. I had the chance to try out the tutorial and a few levels. DO NOT SKIP OVER THE TUTORIAL!!!! The moves combine button pushing and movements on the thumbsticks. Not only do you need to hit the buttons and movements in the right order, but you need to hit X as you are about to land. This is not your typical Tony Hawk button mashing. You need to be precise with your movements in order to land the tricks. The levels that I played were colorful and fun. I played the single player mode, but there will be a multiplayer option for you to play with friends.
The game will be $29.99, and feature both the original and sequel. That is a lot of gameplay for 30 bucks. OlliOlli: Epic Combo Edition will be available on PS4 sometime in July of this year. Big thanks to U&I Entertainment for setting up this demo and letting me play! I would recommend it for those who want a little more of a challenging skateboarding game.
