  • Summary: Ori and the Blind Forest is a bit of a genremix – It’s a ‘Metroidvania‘, but with a stronger platforming focus and light RPG elements, all set within an atmospheric world.

    This game may be beautiful, but it is also deadly.

    An artistic masterclass on virtually every level—it begins perfectly, it ends perfectly, and it delivers a bounty of beautiful, creative platformer goodness in between. It is, perhaps, 2015's first inevitable lock for year-end top ten lists.

    Gorgeous art direction, simple but touching story and layers and layers of lovely majestic sound effects, coupled with a kick-ass soundtrack, great old-school platform mechanics.

    Challenging and gorgeous, Ori is a classic platforming genre modernized and done strikingly well. Use a controller and save often.

    As far as Metroidvania games go, Ori's brilliant visuals, stunning soundtrack and spot-on controls are unparalleled. An amazing achievement.

    Playing Ori and the Blind Forest is akin to having a piano lesson — it is fun only when you press exactly the right keys. Get off the mark for just a split second, and the entrancing melody is gone, the tempo is ruined, and all you can hear is the sound of your fingers frantically tapping the keys.

    This review contains spoilers, click expand to view. Bir tanede Türkçe yorum olsun =D Oyun gerçekten çok güzel. Oyunun soundtrackları ve renk paleti insanın içine işliyor. 2 eksiği var oyunun. Birincisi oyunun 12 saatlik gibi kısa bir oyun olması ki aslında ortalama bir süre. Bir diğeri ise Oyuna tekrar başlamak için bir sebebin olmaması :( Dlc paketleri de yok oyunun maalesef. Ama bu eksiler bile oyuna tam puan vermeme engel olamadı. Expand

Best metroidvania I've ever played. Atmosphere, story, graphic design and arts (!!!), and very satisfying, rewarding skill curve. I'm not giving a 10 because it have small bug in Forlorn Ruins however it can be solved with no effort, so it's not game-breaking. Small tip: this game is much easier and fun when you play it using a gamepad. Expand

    good story and nice gameplay but the early game is a pain in the ass since you gotta explore the map and die almost instantly, the savegood story and nice gameplay but the early game is a pain in the ass since you gotta explore the map and die almost instantly, the save mechanic is nice but it's annoying that saving uses resources to fight leaving you with less options overall, must problems get solved later on but by that time there's no need to actually save because of the movement options and excess energy . Also it's not necesary to be carefull in the enviroment because of the defense buff granted by ability trees and excess life Expand
