Review from Steam

I adore this game so much! <3 I had never played a platformer before this, but it was easy to understand, fun to play, and beautiful. 10/10, I could play this over and over and never get bored of it.

Review from Steam

Amazing platformer and one of the most beautiful 2D games ever made.
Pros:
+ visuals that are all hand painted
+ music
+ atmosphere
+ very responsive character
+ really fun gameplay and mechanics
+ you start as a leaf
Cons:
- no back tracking (fixed in Definitive Edition)
- no way to travel faster (fixed in Definitive Edition)
There are also a lot things that one shot you. This can make the game pretty challenging for casual players and makes 0 death run achievement very tedious.

TLDR: That’s going to be a 10 from me dawg.
The mechanical aspect of Ori is one of the finest I've experienced in a video game. The platforming is brilliant. Ori controls perfectly. Movement is tight, but the motion is fluid. The translation of what your hands are doing and what you see on the screen is so intuitive. The pure kinetic joy of moving around the world of this game makes it so hard to put down.
All of these most basic strengths of Ori is what makes the game so enjoyable since it feeds into the other aspects of the game. It makes exploring the whole map and going after the collectibles fun because no matter how far anything is that you want to get to, you don't mind going there since the journey to that destination as you jump, dash, and run through the world is so enticing. And no matter how many times you die trying to accomplish a section of the game, you keep on doing it because it's challenging fun.
The level design in particular is marvelous. How the platforms are placed and spaced, both the static parts and moving parts and how the enemies are designed and carefully positioned in the map... all of that feels purposefully done.
Then there are these "escape" sections, Indiana Jones-esque sequences which are perfect for giving you that slight burst of adrenaline. There's a part where you run away from a huge boulder. Another part where you run away from rushing lava. But the absolute highlight in this respect is the escape from the Ginzo Tree, which was such a rush.
While the game design is one thing, how the abilities are designed to enable Ori to interact with this world is equally brilliant. You're presented with so many well made sections for platforming and puzzle solving, then you're also given a swiss army knife of abilities with which to solve everything. These abilities are perfectly catered for the goal that they're supposed to help achieve, and there's no one way to solve much of this world, which makes using your abilities all the more engaging.
Besides the gameplay though, the presentation of the game is great. The visuals are amazing and are perfectly complemented by one of the best soundtracks I've heard in years. The atmosphere of the game is so delicately "zen", with gorgeously lush and colorful flora.
Finally... dem feels. My god, dem feels. Throughout the game there are only 2 characters that talk, Sein and the narrator and they both don't even talk much. The story of Ori and the Blind Forest is mostly told in vignettes, and it's a testament to this game's writing team how much an emotional punch the game delivers by saying so little. There are several sequences that are especially heartwrenching, but every little touch in this very simple story is just enough to tug at those heartstrings. The game touches on themes of love, kindness, and friendship so clearly that it's sad to leave these characters by the end.
Everything is simply a triumph. I can't think of anything bad to say about Ori and the Blind Forest. I literally can't. I was so consumed by how fun it was to control Ori and use Ori's abilities. I was enthralled by how enjoyable it was to move Ori through this world that was so well designed. And throughout the whole experience, I was also emotionally driven by this brilliantly imagined world, with the music, visuals, and story all coming together to support how good the game is. Please give it a try.
