Created by Moon Studios, an independent studio with developers located all around the world, Ori and the Blind Forest tells the story of a hero who must journey to find courage and confront a dark nemesis to save his home. The young orphan is destined for heroics through a visually-stunning action-platformer crafted by the talented people at Moon Studios for Xbox One and PC.

Featuring hand-painted artwork, meticulously-animated character performances and a fully orchestrated score, Ori and the Blind Forest explores a deeply, emotional story and love, sacrifice and the hope that exists in each and every single one of us.

It's a beautiful game that looks very much like Rayman Origins. Tomorrow will be one fun day.

I'm off tomorrow so tonight would be one fun experience. I'm installing it now and it's at 89%. I'll keep you posted with a honest, non biased review. And being an achiever and accomplishing some pretty tough tasks, I find it ridiculous how some reviewers detract from their score for difficulty. Stay tuned, a REAL REVIEW IS ON THE WAY! !

Another perfect score. Great job on a great game.

It's unanimous across the board that reviewers and critics love this game, from the visuals, atmosphere all the way down to what is the most important, gameplay.

"Remember the first time you played Zelda or Metroid when you were a child? We hope that years from now people will also remember the first time they got to play Ori and the Blind Forest."

When you have a company that puts out statements like this then you know they are truly passionate about gameplay core mechanics.

Congrats to Moon Studios, the four years it took them to make this game is paying off big time.

Looking to be not only a gorgeous game that has some nice substance as well. I'll be picking this up on steam shortly. I hope everyone who gets Ori has fun!

starchild3270d ago

Yeah, me too. I've had my eye on this a long time and I can't wait to play it.

This game is scoring extremely well and for the gullible ones who only buy through reviews, here's your next buy. As for me, if I had an XBO, I'd definitely be buying ( I will later this year.) Not because of reviews, but because I liked what I saw/ seen. So here's hoping the rest of the Xbox community picks it up.

TheOneWhoIsTornApart3270d ago

Do you have a gaming PC?. If so it is releasing on that as well.

Xavior_Reigns3270d ago

Unfortunately no I don't, I'd love to game on PC but several factors hold me from doing so. I plan on getting a XBO this upcoming holiday anyways, so I don't mind the wait.

TheOneWhoIsTornApart3270d ago

@Xol_Reigns: I was only asking because you wouldn't have to wait to play it if you did. Also the disagrees I got for my comment are ridiculous. Can't think of even one reason why I would get them for stating a fu**ing fact.

Xavior_Reigns3270d ago

You can't think of one reason? LOL! Come on dude it isn't that hard...

This is N4G remember, a site so toxic with fanboy garbage, that only the brave dare it's foulness. I'm sure I only got agrees because I'm getting a XBO.

Why would the game break the studio? My understanding was that going mostly-exclusive with Ori meant it was ruminated excellently so it could be secure?

Tacoboto363d ago

You didn't read the article to understand the context in which it was said, then.

VenomUK363d ago

@Tacoboto Yes, that is correct.
