    While the Nintendo Switch has seen its fair share of Metroidvania titles over its four-year run, Ori and the Will of the Wisps stands strong as one of its best. While the original was already a memorable adventure, Ori and the Will of the Wisps manages to make improvements whilst dazzling with a visual look that somehow manages to be even more eye-catching than before.

    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.

    Ori and the Will of the Wisps is a gorgeous game with fast-paced action, an enormous, beautiful world to explore and a solemn story crafted very well.

    I will say that the best way to play this would still be on a PC or Xbox One, as you'll get a better graphical and technical performance. But, most of us Switch owners know that there's usually some kind of price to pay for the opportunity to take games wherever we want on a handheld system. In this case, very little was sacrificed. If you were waiting for this port to happen, then you can whip that wallet out and make this purchase without fear, as Ori And The Will Of The Wisps is a great new addition to the Switch's ever-growing digital library.

    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.

It’s more than that, an overwhelming experience from beginning to end. I’m still amazed that a team of people can create so much beauty. This is a masterpiece: the music, the graphics, the playability, the flow, and above all, the characters and the story. It’s from now on my all-time new favorite game. Expand

    Jugabilidad de 10, visualmente de 10, música de 10, narrativa de 10. Es prácticamente perfecto como juego de plataformas 2d/metroidvania. EnJugabilidad de 10, visualmente de 10, música de 10, narrativa de 10. Es prácticamente perfecto como juego de plataformas 2d/metroidvania. En cuestión de rendimiento, la versión de salida para Switch es muy buena, ya que va muy fluido y jugando en una TV de 32 pulgadas apenas he notado dientes de sierra salvo una vez en una transición cinemática. El único fallo es que en alguna rara ocasión tarda un poco en cargar las zonas a las que te desplaces. Pero bueno, si tienes una Switch, no lo dudes, compra el juego. Expand

As much as I enjoyed the first game, it was soured by some unforgiving difficulty spikes - particularly the chase sequences. This time around the game is better balanced and the escape scenes are challenging, but less frustrating. Expand

    Doesn't do enough to stand out from the outstanding first game, but still a good game nevertheless.
