Review from Steam

i played this game at 800x600 on 50% resolution scaling, with 20-25 fps whenever it was playable paired with horrendous constant stuttering and freezing whenever i moved around a bit for an average of around 7fps, with the audio constantly stuttering and buzzing, waiting 15 minutes to be able to get past the menu screen whenever i booted the game, having to wait for half an hour when loading the luma pools area for it to become (my definition of) playable, and had to rush through the game to shorten my suffering
and i still think it was great and had lots of fun

Review from Steam

The original Blind Forest was, and is, one of my favorite games of all time. This follow-up is a more than worthy sequel, ramping up the sense of scale from the first game. With a larger map to explore, more attacks, more platforming skills, more characters to interact with, and more of the same gorgeous art style that made the first game such a wonder to behold, the sequel takes much of what was awesome about the first game and turns it up several more notches.
Some of the same emotional beats that were present in the first game are also reused here, but Ori's journey of discovery in this tale is no less powerful and gut-punching. Gareth Coker's beautiful music sweeps us along as we explore the new land of Niwen, with jaw-dropping scenes of beauty everywhere you look. This is a stunning game, a labor of love from Moon Studios, and a wondrous success -- a fabulous jewel of a game which will captivate you time and time again.

Ngl, both of the Ori games made me emotional. Now that's what I call a successful game. 11/10.

The real Metroidvania PC we need !
 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 :


 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.

 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.

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

 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.

-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.

 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.

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.

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.

 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.

Review from Steam

This is an improvement over Blind Forest with better platforming and combat. The story is also as good as before. Recommended 100%

Review from Steam

3 days for both games. Couldn't put The Blind Forest nor the Will of the Wisps down. Buy it on sale. Buy it off sale. It worth it either way.
