One of the Best Metroidvania games!

It's everything you want from a metroidvania game: great power ups, responsive controls, secrets, and challenging. Also beautiful music and art style with a story that made me shed a tear. Can't wait for the sequel.

Challenging, but a must-have!

This game is a lot of fun and very addictive. The music, art style and gameplay are excellent! Usually don't purchase side-scrolling type games, but this game has been a blast to play. It's challenging, but not so much that you need to look on forums or YouTube to figure out where to go. Controls are excellent too. Happy with purchasing this game, and cannot wait for the sequel.

A Work Of Magic And Wonder

Music, Art, Gameplay, this game has it all. When a game can tell you so very little and yet still make you fall in love with its characters you know you've done something right. Fair gameplay even on the hardest difficulty makes every fall seem more of a lesson than the game simply punishing you. The music is beautiful in its own right as it fills the world guiding your emotions and enveloping you in a forest corrupted by decay yet life and light cling to the last strand of hope. And the art. What can I say about it that would do it justice? I have no words, it is simply something you need to see for yourself. In the end Ori and the Blind Forest is a work of art laced with fun and enjoyable gameplay. Can you face the darkness with just one life to give? It's a challenge anyone should try. If you have a love for platformers and a love of art and music, then get this game and face the growing darkness to bring light back to your home. Be brave little one, your tale is ready to begin.

Amazing in ALL aspects

It has great music, graphics, story line, and it is challenging. It is not so hard that you get stuck all the time, but it does make a good challenge with the obstacles in it.
