    Ori and Blind Forest: Definitive Edition is one of the best games on the Nintendo Switch and is a must-own. It’s an exceptional Metroidvania that successfully blends elements of the platforming genre to create an experience unlike any other. With beautiful visuals, an imaginative setting, flawless gameplay, charming characters, powerful soundtrack, and an emotional narrative, Ori and the Blind Forest: Definitive Edition is one of the best games in the Nintendo Switch software library.

    A perfect blend between a platformer and a metroidvania, with a wonderful story, artistic style and soundtrack. If you didn't play the original, Ori and the Blind Forest Definitive Edition on the Nintendo Switch is the best way to experience a truly magical video game.

    The end result is a game that is phenomenal in its presentation and very decent in gameplay. Ori and the Blind Forest: Definitive Edition doesn't necessarily set a new standard or innovate within the Metroidvania genre, but it does create an experience that is elevated by its otherwise stellar production values. Ultimately, it's up to personal preference, but you should give the game a chance; you'd likely regret it otherwise.

    It’s not perfect, but Ori and the Blind Forest: Definitive Edition is one of those games that everyone should play at least once. Its combat can be a little frustrating at times, as well as its platforming, but by making effective use of the Soul Link system they don’t have to put an end to your fun.

    Ori on Switch still is a brilliant exploration platformer with constant challenges and an incredible soundtrack that it was for its premiere a few years. Visually it might not be as shiny as the original but Ori makes up for that with improved balance finetuning, among other things.

    Finally, one of the best metroidvania of this generation arrives on Switch thanks to its Definitive Edition. If you never experienced the story of Ori and the Blind Forest, this is your chance to guide the hero through a beautiful and meaningful journey.

    Gorgeous visuals and some sublime visual storytelling, Ori And The Blind Forest might not do much that is genuinely new but almost everything it does attempt is genuinely great.

    Incrível em tudo: qualidade gráfica, áudio e história. O game play mantem o que joguei no primeiro jogo, mas com algumas melhorias.

    Nice to look at, but not very fun to play. The visuals quickly lose their charm after an hour or two of gameplay.
