    An incredible unison of sub-genres and seemingly conflicted elements alike, Ori and the Will of the Wisps is an absolute triumph of game design through-and-through, and is worthy of a second playthrough for those who have already experienced it earlier this year.

    Obviously it isn't the best example of next-gen in terms of special effects or graphical features but it works perfectly and extremely fast with the 4k/120 FPS settings.

    Will of the Wisps was always an impressive visual showpiece, despite the technical flaws that initially held it back. It's more straightforward, combat-heavy flow may still put off die-hard fans of the original Ori, but there's that's a small nitpick for a game that retains its identity while finding a new flow. Most importantly for the Series X and S upgrades, next-gen hardware turns one of Will of the Wisps' original weaknesses into a point of pride, and that's worth celebrating.

    On the Xbox One X, late-game save files for Ori would tend to boot in at around ten seconds which, granted, isn’t even that bad in retrospect. Despite this, Series X still bests those times significantly, bringing it down to only about five seconds. It’s an undoubted improvement across the board, as the game’s now far more optimised than it was at launch. If you’ve managed to avoid Ori and the Will of the Wisps up until this point, I absolutely implore you to take a chance on one of the year’s most beautiful platforming games. Now even prettier and more stable, it’s sure to light a fire in your heart.

    works great on Series X, either 4K120FPS or 6K60FPS.

    The game itself is beautiful and a must play. Magical story and a great metroidlike

    Magical story and a great metroidlike game.

    For me (I am a noob) It was really challenging on Normal difficulty, however not impossible to complete. Beware, there will be frustrating parts :)

    Highly recommended
