    Ori and the Will of the Wisps drastically improves upon its predecessor, with stellar gameplay, visuals and music. A true testament to what the Switch is capable of, this stunning sequel is not to be missed.

    Ori and the Will of the Wisps arrives on the Switch in exceptional form. Though there have been a few nips and tucks here and there in order to squeeze it into a considerably more modest form factor, it still showcases Moon Studio’s incredible vision from the moment it starts to the tear-jerking finale.

    As a whole, Ori and the Will of the Wisps is a beautiful, tragic, and complex story told on a stunning landscape and full of unique and loveable characters that will make you feel...so so many emotions. Its gameplay is incredibly satisfactory with challenging, creative puzzles, hidden rooms, and difficult-enough enemies. I would, and already have, recommend this game to anyone and everyone.

    Ori and the Will of the Wisps improves upon the already great foundation set out by Ori and the Blind Forest. Its map is brimming with details and secrets to discover while new weapons and movement abilities create real depth to both combat and platforming. Ori’s journey through Niwen is filled with emotional ups and downs that all feel earned and act as the perfect payoff for fans of the series. The injection of RPG elements like upgrades, side quests, and even a hub area to get attached to all anchor you to this gorgeously realized world, and the fantastic conversion to Switch means that you won’t be missing out on a thing. Ori and the Will of the Wisps is one of the best 2D platformers on Switch and a game that shouldn’t be missed.

    Ori and the Will of the Wisps manages to be more than just a plain old sequel. It changes just enough and introduces great new mechanics and characters to truly feel like a completely separate game while being unmistakably Ori at the core. More importantly, it runs perfectly well on the Switch with only minor visual adjustments. Will of the Wisps stands as tall as its predecessor as a beautiful action-platformer that everyone should try.

    The pleasure of the game is therefore intact and we can now enjoy, wherever we are, one of the best Metroidvanias of recent years.

    It's incredible how moving this game is. The boss fights in particular, both with the people you face and how they are handled, are extraordinary.

I didn't play it for a short while after it came out because I heard there were a couple of bugs and because I couldn't believe they'd be able to make something as good as the original. I was afraid that they'd just recreate the first game with the exact same storybeats to force another tearjerker.
    I'm happy to say that my fears were unnecessary. This game is better than it's predecessor in every possible way. If I could give this more than a 10/10 I would, because I gave the original a 10.
    A must-play and my favourite game of all times, no questions asked.

    It's like a rethinking of the first part with the addition of new ideas and mechanics that have been successfully implemented in other gamesIt's like a rethinking of the first part with the addition of new ideas and mechanics that have been successfully implemented in other games from other companies.

    It may seem that the game has lost some of its originality from this, but no, it's still the same insanely beautiful and atmospheric game about Ori.

    However, not everything went smoothly - the location does not always load seamlessly, there are friezes and crashes because of this, soapy graphics. But even with all this, the game is very cool and you cannot pass by it, especially if you like platforming and there is no pc / x-box

    The game is broken. The grab-function ceased to work after a couple of hours.
