OlliOlli: Switch Stance
Top Critic Average
An inspired mix of skateboarding and 2D platforming that manages to combine a surprising level of realism with some enjoyably impossible level design.
Don’t let the simple aesthetic fool you, OlliOlli and its sequel are damn near flawless skateboarding games that hold up incredibly well in 2019.
The 2D skateboarding series comes to Switch and is worth checking out whether you're new to it or not
OlliOlli is one of those games you really have to live with; perseverance pays dividends, but so does taking a break and coming back in the morning to find muscle memory kicking in. Before you know it you'll be grinding elegantly and racking up impressive points, but you need to stick with it. With the skateboarding genre largely on hiatus, this is an easy recommendation to newcomers with the patience to master it. This version doesn't bring anything new to the table if you've played it before, but it's a fine game in fine form on Switch.
OlliOlli: Switch Stance keeps the difficult yet satisfying gameplay of this indie hit intact as it makes its way to Nintendo’s newest console. As long as you’re prepared for a challenge, this is a pretty fun title.
A fun new version of the OlliOlli games, but not without problems.

If you haven't played the series before then OlliOlli: Switch Stance is a no-brainer. There's not much reason to return, but the gameplay remains as satisfying as ever.
OlliOlli: Switch stance is an awesome combination of two great games and packed with fun content. If you're a skateboarding fan or you just like a good sidescoller then you'll definitely want to check this one out.
OlliOlli: Switch Stance is a fantastic package, bringing one of the best short-burst arcade experiences of recent times to a platform where it can really thrive.
A learning curve can be a barrier initially, but once you learn the ropes, you'll just want to keep skating forever. Although the second game is the better of the two, the difference isn't stark enough to warrant skipping out on the first. These both fit the textbook definition of perfect on-the-go games – while not the most visually impressive games out there, they are perfect for both quick bursts of fun or hours of intense focus and mastery.
