Just kidding! You dont have to.

What an incredible game so far. I just got Bash and it makes the game hilarious. Stopping time to jump off of bullets while redirecting them is some Neo Matrix shit.

I have only two minor gripes, plus one big one. This game does not have enough boss fights or enemy variety, though maybe that gets better later.

The platforming however is just not good. Ori has this crazy lateral movement but no height. Its basically the exact opposite of Ice Climber, who can jump 50 feet but only actually moves 2 inches forward, and it all feels like a cheap way to force you to use Oris abilities. The skills being fun is their own reward; you dont have to have endless spike floors with USE BASH HERE written on them.

But still, this game is great. Has anyone played Will of the Wisp yet?

Blind Forest basically does not have boss fights: the escape sequences are the equivalent. Will of the Wisp focuses more on the combat and platforming aspects, though

Will of the Wisps is better in basically every way in my opinion. Fantastic games.

What is this, some kind of joke?!

Hi tree. I have just freed your corruption and we can have water again!

Fuck you and go drown.

Uh, thanks?

That was really dumb and the escape was worse, but hey I can swim now! :)

Tree escape is one of the coolest parts in the game. Awesome music and super fun sequence.

Will of the Wisps was my personal GotY last year, and I played FF7R, Hades, Doom Eternal, and Tsushima. A fucking masterpiece

Hot Take: Blind Forest > Will of the Wisps for me

Because Platforming > Combat in those kinda games. WotW still a very good game though.

These escape bits are putrid. Just a huge sore on an otherwise good game.

I thought both Ori games were bad. Felt like the collectibles were relatively meaningless and the game play alternated between easy and frustrating with nothing in between.

Escape segments feel like bad design because all the time it feels like the games are very lenient with checkpoints and then all of a sudden it goes bam and you have to best an entire unforgiving section with absolutely no checkpoints in between.

I personally like them though.

The lack of checkpoints isn't really the problem. It's that no matter how fast you go, there's rubberbanding.

Also they are way too long

I found one of the escape segment in Will of the Wisps to be the most infuriating (because the controls for burrowing in sand is fucking bad in that game) even though in general the escapes in that game were much easier than Blind Forest.

Tree escape was pretty hard for me the first time but when I replayed the game twice after that I found it kinda easy
Can't say the same about another escape segment in the sequel...

I actually really like the escapes as a "test of what you're learned" kind of deal

Escapes are trial and error which takes away from the fun imo :(

Huh. Went through the mountain thinking it would get me a new ability or something, but that's the end of the game. Had to do the dumb escape twice because software failure. Thanks, game. Very good ending, at least.

Map cleanup time.

Cleaned up the map, got all the achievements I care about. So like, 50 of the 57?

Really good game, and this thing definitely deserved to beat Dragon Age. Solid 9/10 with the aforementioned two minor flaws. Cant wait to play the next one!
