    Beautiful, whimsical, difficult and brutal, Ori and the Blind Forest is a thoroughly engrossing platforming experience. [Issue#252, p.]

    Ori and the Blind Forest: Definitive Edition is quite simply a fantastic game and is one of my favourite games in recent times. I would highly recommend playing this version of the game if you played the original and if you haven’t played Ori and the blind Forest yet then now is the perfect time to experience it at its best.

    Perhaps the true definitive version of Ori and the Blind Forest assuming you can get it running at 4K. Even if you can't and you haven't played it yet, it's still one of the very best platformers of the last few years with a stunning art style, incredible score, and emotional storyline.

    I cannot in recent memory think of a game that has moved me as much as Ori and the Blind Forest has. The art style, soundtrack and design of the game are all breathtakingly beautiful. On their own they stand strong, telling the story of the forest and its destruction in a way that is more powerful than a text prelude could ever be. Together, they combine into something that feeds off each other to create one incredible game experience.

    While the additions don't change the game in any fundamental way, the overall experience is still as amazing as it was last year. If you haven't played Ori before, this Definitive Edition is a must buy.

    Ori and the Blind Forest is still an exceptional game, it handles beautifully and the audio/visual presentation is simply stunning.

    Ori and the Blind Forest is a special game. It doesn’t quit sit solely in the platform genre, it is a far more involved story than simply slotting in that.

    Fantastic game, the soundtrack is beautiful, typically limited to a different version of the same melody but still creates so much depth andFantastic game, the soundtrack is beautiful, typically limited to a different version of the same melody but still creates so much depth and emotion, you always know what the scene is and this is thanks to the gorgeous soundtrack alone, the art and world design is stunning, you never feel lost even though the world is huge with so many fun puzzles to do. The storyline is so damn beautiful, this is the only time a game has made me cry. The platforming complements this game so goddamn well. All the puzzles and unique abilities you get help you navigate this vast world. I would strongly recommend you get this even if platform games aren't your style the story, soundtrack and puzzles may get you hooked and if it doesn't then refund the game, 2 hours is plenty of time to weight up your opinion.
    In conclusion, I have loved this game since it came and decided to get an account purely to tell you that I could not recommend this enough. Moon Studios have worked hard to deliver a stunning game and it deserves all the praise it can get.

    Moon Studios really improved the game by only adding 2 more skills and fast travel points. MASTERPIECE.
