    No game is perfect and I don’t believe giving a game a 10/10 means that it is perfect. However, I believe that Ori and the Will of the Wisps is a masterpiece that deserves the highest praise that I can give it. Moon Studios is a shining example that a small team working with a lot of heart and passion can create something beautiful, fun and challenging. It expands on the original in every way and you will not find a better game in the Metroidvania genre. I personally can’t wait to dive back into the game on a harder difficulty.

    A gorgeous platformer that builds on the original without ruining what made it so special. If you have Game Pass, there’s no reason not to play this.

    The visuals are mesmerizing and the music is enchanting, the combat and platforming sequences are smooth as ever and despite its technical issues, The Will of the Wisps is the sequel that The Blind Forest deserves.

    Ori and the Will of the Wisps is a poignant story and its gameplay is richer than that of its predecessor; it offers plenty of new features with an interesting RPG dimension. The world of Moon Studios is always as magical for the eye and the mind, and enchanting music brings the perfect final touch to this dazzling adventure. Nevertheless, the game suffers from real technical problems: frequent framerate drops and freezes prevent you from fully enjoying this journey. Aside from that, Ori and the Will of the Wisps is almost perfect.

    In the beauty stakes and beyond, there are very few, in the rarefied realms of indie or AAA, who can challenge it.

    Minor niggles aside, I can wholeheartedly recommend Ori And The Will Of The Wisps to all of you. Whether or not you've played the original game, picking up this new adventure should be a no-brainer. Moon Studios has gone bigger and better in every conceivable way, crafting an epic, emotional adventure that borrows from some of the best games out there and smartly remixes various genres and ideas in thrilling, unexpected ways.

    Ori and the Will of the Wisps feels familiar, even though there are many new elements introduced. Not all of them are truly adding to the experience, but they are in no way detrimental. Even though the game is buggy, this metroidvania meets platformer is still a blast.

    Nice graphics and interesting gameplay, BUT totally unplayable due to hundreds of glitches and hangs per minute. It's abusing the name of theNice graphics and interesting gameplay, BUT totally unplayable due to hundreds of glitches and hangs per minute. It's abusing the name of the first Ori game.
    Plus, the boss enemies are way too hard and it's impossible to change the difficulty mid-game.
    Very frustrating experience playing this game with my kid and being stuck on a boss for weeks..
