NEW IN THE DEFINITIVE EDITION
The forest of Nibel is dying. After a powerful storm sets a series of devastating events in motion, Ori must journey to find courage and confront a dark nemesis to save the forest of Nibel. “Ori and the Blind Forest” tells the tale of a young orphan destined for heroics, through a visually stunning Action-Platformer crafted by Moon Studios. Featuring hand-painted artwork, meticulously animated character performance, a fully orchestrated score and dozens of new features in the Definitive Edition, “Ori and the Blind Forest” explores a deeply emotional story about love and sacrifice, and the hope that exists in us all.
I didn't really think much of platformers until now, and I just bought this game because the soundtrack sounded really great. (I wasn't let down btw, soundtrack is amazing) MAN was I surprised! The story, gameplay, mechanics, soundtrack and design, everything is beautifully crafted and together made this one of my most unforgettable gaming experiences yet! Many platformers doesn't quite manage to immerse you into the game like Ori And The Blind Forest does. I would recommend this game to anyone who are looking for a great story, beautiful art, EARGASMIC soundtrack, great gameplay mechanics and awesome challenges.
AMAZING! Want amazing music? Play this game. Want amazing graphics? Play this game. Want amazing story that makes you cry your eyes out? PLAY THIS GAME. We need more games like this. 10/10.
I'm gonna give credit were credit is due. I actually feel bad for getting this games on sale. Other then a few nit-pick issues this was overall a 9/10 game. The remaining one(if you disagree feel free to hate) belongs to 2 things and these are my personal opitions here. 1. would be the skill tree in the case of the air dash(mastered it before I could dash and made me think I could do it before I had the skill). 2. would be the button scheme, in the heat of the fast pace event, it's super easy to forget which button does what(nit-pick here: also needed to press and hold charge after use). Other then these 2 things it is an overall all great game from the story, to the breath taking scenery, and even the Soundtrack it makes it hard to think the UNITY program had anything to do with it. On sale or not it is a must game game.
There's something to be had with Ori and the Blind Forest. What with the platforming journey with emotional backstory transitioning in and out of gameplay... The game is something best experienced than described. Regardless, it presents a story that should by all accounts be experienced nonetheless. The Definitive Edition then should be hard to pass up. Not only does it add more to the story and lore, but it also expands on the levels and skills you can use, giving you more options in terms of gameplay. This means playing through it a second time could produce a different experience. The story is the very backbone though, and that has not been compromised at all with the new areas and backstory. Ori and the Blind Forest is an excellent game, and if you're planning on getting it then just skip ahead straight to the Definitive Edition. It's very worth keeping in your games library.
The sounds and visuals are the best part about this game and the character you play as is adorable. The game is a bit hard for non-pro-platformers like me, particularly the escape sequences. While some of them you could theoretically get on your first try, one stands out as being totally trial and error on where you needed to go which meant you needed to die in order to know how to beat it, something I think it a bit unfair. The only truly sad part, as is true of most puzzle and platforming games, it has limited replay-ability. While I am put off by some of the new stuff, I still think the Definitive Edition is an improvement on the base game. As I love the base game then by the transitive property of equivalence I highly recommend Ori and the Blind Forest, Definitive Edition. Now that that is over with I am now eagerly waiting for Ori 2.
