Ori and the Blind Forest Review - GamesReviews

From GamesReviews:
"Ori and the Blind Forest is one of the best games I have ever played...ever. Not only is the audio and visuals outstanding, but the story off the top is really gripping, making you want to play through the whole thing to see what happens to the beautiful forest that once existed.

Moon Studios has developed an almost flawless title that gets top marks for audio, video, gameplay, and story. Moon Studios should be commended for their work on Ori and the Blind Forest; Microsoft is lucky to have this gem as an exclusive to Xbox One. It very well could be a Game of the Year contender come December."

I'm in awe as how good this is. One of few games I've played where I can only describe the experience as magical.

Exclusive to X1? Funny, I thought I just played 2 hours of this great game on my PC through Steam. Weird

I'm glad you guys are enjoying this game published and if I'm correct funded by MS. Someone recently told me that Moon Studios is a 1st party studio also, not sure on that.

But anyways I think MS was successful when expanding more of their games to all audiences from PC to console. I'm sure they knew fine people like yourself with a certain quirkiness to not support the X1 could still find a way to support MS through their games.

This way the game is successful, the studio keeps it's doors open and more gamers all around are enjoying the game.

Dunno why people are hitting diagree, the review says "Microsoft is lucky to have this gem as an exclusive to Xbox One." Clearly that's not correct lol, that said I've put an hour into it so far and i'm loving it.

To be fair MS could have had it exclusive on X1. They decided to publish it on PC and 360. It's a first party MS game and is exclusive to their platforms. MS makes money no matter where you buy it.

Vegamyster1077d ago


Of course but the review clearly states it's exclusive to the Xbox One, not Microsoft based platforms.

starchild1077d ago

I agree, but I think they mean it's exclusive to Xbox in the console space.

Let's not make this a bad thing. I'm happy they are supporting the PC with some of their games.

the article said " a current -->console<-- exclusive .."

im guessing the article has been corrected since your comment.

Haven't had a chance to buy and play this yet. Can't wait for the weekend. I am amazed how many perfect or near perfect scores this is getting. And just $20.

"Game of the Year contender"

StrayaKNT1077d ago

100%. like the guy up there said, this game is magical.

KiwiViper851077d ago

Spoiler alert, haha. I'm 40% into FC4 but this is my next game for sure.

Tedakin1077d ago (Edited 1077d ago )

It's funny how Microsoft supporting all of their platforms is used as anti-xbox fodder in the fanboy war. "LOL it's not really exclusive to Xbox!" Yes MS CHOOSES to put games like this on PC and 360. They support. Sony flat out bailed on PS3. They could have put Infamous SS and others on it, even if at lower resolutions. They didn't.

Yet somehow MS and Xbox get slammed.

DoubleYourDose1077d ago (Edited 1077d ago )

Did Microsoft release Crimson Dragon, D4, Dead Rising 3, Fighter Within, Forza 5, Killer Instinct, Kinect Sports Rivals, Powerstar Golf, or Sunset Overdrive on their Xbox 360 console? No, yet you complain about Sony not releasing Infamous Second Son on the PS3. Give me a break.

Master-H1077d ago (Edited 1077d ago )

Such a nonsense-filled comment. All the agrees you're getting..smh..of course, it's an XBOX article and you're saying something negative about PS, that's an automatic upvote..

Infamous SS isn't possible on PS3. The closest thing to it on XBOX 1 is Sunset OverDrive. Why didn't MS put that on the 360 ????

We'd never get games that takes full advantage of the new hardware if the devs keep having last gen versions in mind when they design them.

Helldivers, another small title similar to Ori in budget/scope, just came out for PS4 and PS3. Did you conveniently missed that? (also Hotline Miami 2)

Last i check they put out LBP3 on PS3, and there are Japanese games like Guilty Gear, Dragon Quest Heroes, the upcoming Persona, Yakuza, Disgae etc..
