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.
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.
Okay, how should I put this... A gorgeous game, with beautiful music, stunning visuals, that works like a charm... it's impossible not to love it. Simply impossible. Give it a try, full price. You will see for yourself how little you payed for such an amazing piece of art that you will play again and again. Because it's beautiful like that.
Ori and the Blind Forest is one of the best platforming titles that I have played in my entire life. The game features simple but deep gameplay mechanics, a stellar art style, and a soundtrack worthy of a Grammy award!. If you have not played this game yet, I cannot recommend it enough. The definitive edition adds even more to the original game through the addition of a new area, new abilities, and numerous fixes and improvements upon the base game. The only downside that Ive noticed since upgrading to the definitive edition is that the new abilities make some of the older abilities redundant and useless. The addition of new abilities isn?t cut and dry though, the definitive edition reinvents many of the older puzzles to incorporate the newer abilities. This is very cool and gives players like myself a reason for getting these abilities. Beyond new areas and abilities, I noticed that players can now teleport between spirit portals; reducing the time it takes to walk through the map and the areas. This is a huge quality of life change and I wholeheartedly welcome it because I enjoy the game much more now without the tedious traveling. The definitive edition is definitely an improvement over an already phenomenal game and it is a must play for anyone who has yet to play the original!
Ori and the Blind Forest is a 2D platformer with a beautiful world, good pacing, great escape sequences, and easily one of the best openings in a video game. The story succeeds in being both sad and heartwarming. There is a good soundtrack with some great tracks. Platforming is fun but fighting enemies is rarely enjoyable and you will see all the enemy types early on and they pose very little threat. Enemies become necessary for your ability to boost off of them and their projectiles and when they are used for platforming can make the game more enjoyable. The Definitive Edition adds an easy, hard, and one life difficulty with the easy and hard mode changing the difficulty of enemies and adding or removing checkpoints. Two new areas are added that fit right in with the world and you gain a little more backstory. There is a new combat and platforming ability, the the platforming ability being very useful for backtracking or speedrunning. Some behind the scenes footage has also been added for those who want to learn more about the making of the game.
