Ori and the Blind Forest Xbox One review - Vic B'Stard's State of Play

Vic B'Stard writes: "Ori and the Blind Forest blew me away when I first saw it after Microsoft sneaked it out at last year’s E3. Nine months later we can now all play Moon Studios’ labour of love.

I’m not much of a fan of indie games. For every gem there’s a dozen or so bits of pretentious rubbish. I’m too long in the tooth and nowhere near hipster enough to be charmed by retro graphics. I suffered lousy visuals the first time around. I want to play games that look so good that my eyes bleed.

The beautiful-looking Ori and the Blind Forest is a pleasant exception to my usual distain for independent fayre. First-time developers Moon Studio, a collection of industry vets from around the world, spend four years crafting what is possible the most delightful platform game that I’ve ever played."

Finished the game today. It really is the best game I've played this generation. Couldn't give a crap that it's indie. The devs have created a gorgeous world filled with characters we want to root for, with the most fun gameplay I've seen this gen and awesome level design, all topped off with a heart breaking story. To sum it up, the game is Beautiful.
