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 don't really know why they wanted this to be a Metroidvania, it really doesn't help it in my opinion. It is a beautiful game though, art direction is phenomenal and music accompanies it perfectly. This is one of the prettiest games I've ever played. But gameplay itself is kinda dry and black, metroidvania aspects are very shallow, and it's unnecessarily punishing in difficulty in couple parts. I'm not saying it shouldn't be difficult, but these were the kind of jumps that weren't that well thought out considering the overall difficulty and style of the game. Definitive Edition does kinda leviate some of this, but I just think overall design of the gameplay just doesn't fit, not bad and it all works, but feels out of place and feels unnecessary. It's still a great game though, story was well made and sad, art direction and music are phenomenal, and it was still fun to experience and I can tolerate some bland gameplay for the really good aspects.
Ori is another Microsoft Studio masterpiece, I just love the art style their giving to us. The main protagonist, a rabbit like creature goes on a adventure that takes place in dying forest of Nibel. The definitive edition expand on the world of the core version by adding additional level and allowing player to revisit two location that were one time only in the original release. Art is great, music is amazing and gameplay is solid. Buy it and you won't be disappointed!
Awesome game, the combination of graphics, audio and action makes the player feel like being inside the story, an incredible story, that can even make you cry. Loved every minute of it! Only one word describes this game...beautiful. From it art style to its music and emotional story, it's truly beautiful.
This game reminded me of the older generations of video games, those that made you want to explore everything they had to offer and have a blast while doing it. Ori and the Blind Forest is amazing. More than that, it's beautiful! The sound design perfectly matches its gorgeous visuals, the controls are seamless and intuitive, and the story is simple yet engaging enough for anyone to love.
It's been an extremely long time since I came across a game that had me as immersed into its story and art as this one, then you tap on the soundtrack and its terrific. I've never EVER been a fan of platformers, simply not my style. But I saw a review and decided to spring 20 bucks for it. I did not expect the punch to the gut in the first five minutes however as the feels game is strong. Ori and the Blind Forest is one of the most polished and well-designed games I've played in an extremely long time. It feels so organic controlling Ori and the puzzles and maps that she navigates through are never the same. I was surprised at how little if any repetition was utilised in the game as I never noticed anything that seemed to duplicate itself. The difficulty curved very well with the abilities that were unlocked and I had a blast simply revisiting places I went through due to now having additional abilities. 500/100 is my score, I've no idea when a game that had this reaction out of me will be on the market again but this studio astounded me with both music and art, that I literally had trouble leaving the game.
