OlliOlli (PS4) review

Ten years ago, skateboarding games were at the height of their popularity. A string of hugely successful Tony Hawks games defined the genre, before they unfortunately became stale. Then, EA brought us Skate, a much more realistic approach to the sport, but both of the sequels lacked the quality of the first, and it seems like it's game over for those too. Thankfully, years of skateboarding silence have been broken, with a little indie game by developers roll7, called OlliOlli. It's a departure from the skating games you're used to, as it's 2D, but don't think that makes it a lesser game. It's probably the best skating game since Tony Hawks Pro Skater 2, which if you aren't aware, was kind of a big deal. Read our full review below to find out why!
