  • 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.

    Even the greatest cynic will be touched by this brilliant platformer. Difficulty setting is missing here and you found this quite challenging even unmerciful. Considering the whole game this small flaw can be forgiven. [Issue#251]

    Ori and the Blind Forest isn't a revolution in genre, but is brilliant in all mechanics and level design. A challenging, difficult and intelligent game with impressive visuals and a great soundtrack.

    A terrific blend of story, gameplay, and graphics, Ori and the Blind Forest is an unforgettable debut for indie developer Moon Studios.

    Ori and the Blind Forest is a beautiful game which combines a great story, great gameplay and great graphics in a challenging and tough game.

    Ori and the Blind Forest imparts a beautiful and intricate framework of the platforming and progression that came to define latter day Castlevania and Metroid titles, but it can't muster the same technical and design prowess to fuel its own ideas. This leaves Ori as an adequate model of its revered genre, just short of the execution and innovation that could have made it exemplary.

Artísticamente es lo mejor que he jugado en mi vida, música que me ha hecho llorar, jugabilidad increíble, difícil como pocos... Este juego no se merece un 10, se merece un 45/10 como poco, y me parece una falta de respeto darle menos de un 9, simplemente porque seas manco. Expand

    L'indé de la fin de semaine est une saloperie évidemment, mais surtout une saleté de jeu de plate-formes en 2D 256 couleurs dont NintendaubeL'indé de la fin de semaine est une saloperie évidemment, mais surtout une saleté de jeu de plate-formes en 2D 256 couleurs dont Nintendaube n'a pas voulu, car Nintendaube a déjà trop de Marioles dans son catalogue niaiseux et que la poésie dégoulinante d'Ori aurait fait déborder le vase de grenadine.

    Du coup, c'est Microsoft Studios qui s'y colle et édite cette daube pleine de poésie sirupeuse avec le petit bidule qui gambade dans la forêt, le petit lutin plein de lumière face aux méchantes ténèbres de la forêt sombre et pas gentille. Aucun intérêt donc sinon de s'endormir dans la répétition débile sauf pour Rainman et tous ses amis trizos ou quadrizos (et plus si affinités).
