Review from Steam

Ahh Ori and the Box of tissues: round 2.
I’m here to tell you that Ori WotW is an absolute masterpiece. This isn’t a game, it’s art. Beat it in a single play through and cried at least 2 times. I loved the game so much I even named one of my kittens Ori. They basically made a sequel that kept everything about what made the first game great, but also took all the things that were lacking in the first game and improved upon it.
The combat is SO much more fun, so much so that I would have a hard time going back to Blind Forest with the auto aiming sentry. I mean, they gave Ori a freaking light saber, what’s not to love? I struggled with it in the beginning as I’m not great at combat in video games in general (yeah I’m one of those who begs for an easy mode in Dark souls), but I got the hang of it eventually and it starts to get easier when you get more skills and abilities.
Despite the improvements in combat, I would not describe it as a combat focused game like Hollow Knight, Ori still stays true to its roots and it’s still more focused on the amazing platforming that made Blind Forest such a treat to play.
The escape sequences are still here, and although they added boss fights, for someone like me who doesn’t love combat (as a pacifist I am against all conflict and I get anxious when I have to harm even digital creatures), it felt like the right amount of bosses where it wasn’t too overwhelming.
The boss fights are also very forgiving, if you die you just reset back to the phase you were at instead of doing the whole fight over again.
A true masterpiece. This is by far one of the best platformers ever created period. Just stunning and grandiose in it’s scope. I am truly in awe and you will be too once you try it.
10/10

Review from Steam

I won't say anything, because the game took away my tears a lot. My feelings were very complicated, the game was very successful in every way especially in terms of music. The plot is too impressive, the graphics are too beautiful. This game deserves the "Game of the Year" award
About the villain: this is what touched me the most, I feel pity for that character. Behind the characters is a story that makes me empathize with their lives and think about how deplorable life is.
About Ku: following from part 1, This is probably the thing that I am not satisfied with the most, when the time with the character is so short that I do not understand the depth of Ku.
I don't know if Moon Studio will release a sequel, but I'm sure the Ori series is a masterpiece you'll never regret.

 Ori and the Will of the Wisps Is a gorgeous game with a fast-paced platformer, satisfying combat, a beautiful world to explore, and an entertaining story.
My Review :

About
Rate


Art/graphic
 
 The graphic is more improved than previous games, the world is more colorful than before. the art, the effect, and the particle it's all combining to make a great piece of art. Besides the new graphical improvement, the game has a cost especially to an old player who has low spec pc which this game is not low spec friendly because of it.
 


Gameplay
 
 The gameplay's still a blast, those facing feel you got after beating the enemy, especially the boss fight feels so good. The control however still have the same rules where the dev love to use all button you have between your ball, and technically the game would be difficult for certain people.
 Unlike other platforming games, Ori is more focused on two things platformer and combat. it's not for everybody who has slow reflect this game would be difficult for certain people. Since I'm not a casual platformer game this game is piece of cake. gonna come into that later, overall the gameplay is great.
 


Multiplayer
 
 Sadly the online leaderboard, it's full of cheaters and seems the dev has no longer supports it.
 


Control
 
 No problem using D-input. Sadly you may need a good 60$ controller since I'm using a cheap controller from Chinese that cost 20$ and analog were bad sometimes it make me jump in the wrong direction.
 


Music or Sound
 
Still good, relaxing and some of them give you those goose bumps.
 


Playtime
 
-My playthrough takes about 9h-10h
-According to HLTB game may finish in 11h - 15h
 Since I've played the first game and also already beating another game that has focused on a platform called Celeste. This game is easy I just bought the game and finish it within a day. Of course, it's a default difficulty, but since the leaderboard was still full of fake scores I don't think playing hard, difficult, and playing the online challenge is not worth.
 


Story
 
 The story is still enjoying its different than prev game. its have heartbreaking it has epic moments etc. the game world now feels more full of life than the original. you have NPC to talk to, some of them giving you quest and a reward, etc. overall I've no problem with the story. and yes my man old frog should deserve better.
 


PC Port
 
Tested OS
Windows 10 Pro | 64 Bit, Version 21H2.
Hardware
AMD Radeon Graphics 512MB Vram | AMD Ryzen 7 5700G CPU.
16GB Ram DDR4 | SSD.
Performance
- Run with integrated graphics.
- Run in 60 Fps
Dropped to 53-58 when a lot of particles showed up.
- CPU temp | 40°C-59°C (Average)
Low spec estimation
 No, apparently not. even with the lowest resolution, Every effect is still present making the game use lot of resources. seem like the dev make an update for "Low spec" but it's not that effective this game is not Low spec friendly.
 


Rating
 
Rated for +Everyone

Disability support
 
Audiotory / Deaf

Colorblind / Visual
-N/A
Motor / Body disability
-Game has a fast projectile which needs a fast reflect.
-The same problem since the previous game, Ori use almost all buttons in your gamepad. if someone has loose some of their fingers and cannot access some button it's gonna a little bit difficult.
This summary isn't perfect, Learn more about Disability support.
 


How many Game Bug
 
-Online leaderboard is full of cheaters.
-In challenge modes, you can lose some of the power you've and need to be restarted to gain that power again.
 


DLC worth?
 
If you love the music it's worth.
 


My oppinion
 
 Game was great but not for everyone to people who want a story you better start from the original games first then jump to this one. For people searching about gameplay yes you need to prepare for the mechanic of the game it is hard for some people if you're not familiar with platformer then you should probably try the first one first.
 After finishing the game, seem like they need a new hero or new games this game would be the final installment and I hope even if they make the third game they shouldn't make a mess with the story because I love it so far it's a solid story that connected with the original.
 

Recommended?
 
 Yes. without a doubt. Kinda surprised with the price that fits with the minimum income from my region which means the game regional pricing is the best than other dev.
