OlliOlli2: XL Edition is the best version of Roll7's stellar skateboarding game, although just by a smidge. The addition of manuals to the core game is a huge boost to the trick system, and makes it possible to combo every single level from start to finish. Throw in the five lengthy free-skate levels, and you have the best 2D skateboarding game ever made. The extras don't make it enough to double dip if you already own it elsewhere, but those who haven't picked it up should grab their deck and get ready to shred.
OlliOlli2, XL Edition or not, is a great game that nails the fundamentals. It is, as many have said, the Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater 2 of indie sidescroller skateboarding games. However, the Xbox One version is crippled by this one small but significant hitch, much like the proverbial pebble in the pavement.
Overall, OlliOlli 2 is a blast, a simplistic time waster that will have you addicted for hours trying to complete challenges (especially if you’re a completionist like me) with the kick-ass soundtrack and gorgeous art style, it really drives home the point that you don’t need to have AAA production value to make a stand-out game. I would even say that I’d choose this over some high production skateboarding titles that have recently come out (ahem, Tony Hawk 5). If you have any shred of human decency and self-respect you will grab this game.
