OlliOlli Epic Combo Edition 

 

Family Friendly Gaming was provided three copies of OlliOlli Epic Combo Edition on the Playstation 4. In the physical copy format too. Two of the games have been given away, and we used the third one for this review. OlliOlli Epic Combo Edition is within two of the movements Family Friendly Gaming supports - physical copy, and indie. So what could go wrong?

I will now go over the issues families can have with this game rated thirteen and older only by the lenient ESRB. There is enticement to lust, blood, violence, undead, gore, lack of attire, and more. The bad words and alcohol are bleeped out (and blurred out) in the documentary videos. There are two games in OlliOlli Epic Combo Edition. They are OlliOlli and OlliOlli 2. There are also three making of documentaries, the OlliOlli 2 Soundtrack, and a studio booklet.

OlliOlli Epic Combo Edition is a great example of how the gaming media can make or break a game. Many in the worldly gaming media embraced and loved OlliOlli. Which gave us OlliOlli 2, and finally OlliOlli Epic Combo Edition. The mood and biases of the worldly gaming media are so fickle. I am surprised they got into OlliOlli Epic Combo Edition personally. Unless they really like the difficulty.

OlliOlli Epic Combo Edition is a very difficult game. Part of that comes from the wonky controls. Flick up to jump, flick down to grind, and press X to land on the ground. Your character is not capable of handling himself on stairs, so avoid them at all costs. The controls are not intuitive, and very tough to master. There are times in OlliOlli Epic Combo Edition that I have no idea why my character did not jump. Or why I hit something. One mistake in OlliOlli Epic Combo Edition and it is level over.

The music in OlliOlli Epic Combo Edition is good. I liked listening to it. The graphics get better between the first and the second one. OlliOlli Epic Combo Edition does look better than many apps and indie games I have played. That reminds me OlliOlli Epic Combo Edition feels like it was a free app. A level based 2D runner with grinding sounds like one of the repeat pay to play games. Right? Well OlliOlli Epic Combo Edition is not, even though it may feel like it.

I applaud BadLand Games for getting OlliOlli Epic Combo Edition into the physical copy format. I appreciate indie games making it to retail. OlliOlli Epic Combo Edition is done right too. There are two games, and extras included. I wish more gaming companies would follow this route. OlliOlli Epic Combo Edition is also selling for thirty dollars brand new. So it is half of the price of some other games on that system. Expect a frustrating challenge from OlliOlli Epic Combo Edition.
