Olympia Rising Critic Reviews

Olympia Rising is a good platformer, but in such a saturated genre it needs to impress more than in does. The characters, story and visuals contribute to the positives, but more care needed to be taken with controls and hit points to make the game less frustrating. There is much to be enjoyed if you are able to look past the negatives, and if that's the case with you it is a worthy addition to your library.

Olympia Rising offers full Off-TV support for when you have to take your gaming away from the TV, and the graphics look just as great on the Wii U GamePad’s screen as they do on the big screen. I played half of the time on the Wii U GamePad and had a blast doing this Olympia Rising review. I’ll be going back to it so that I can finally finish it because it’s very addictive!

There are very enjoyable gameplay aspects, but your main weapon will give you a lot of frustration. Add to that the leaps of faith and the underwhelming selection of bosses, and you just have a mixed bag. A mixed bag that will a bring a smile now and again, but that is about it.
