I beat this earlier in the week. Whatta game. Much better than the first one, but it borrows a lot from Hollow Knight, which is the greatest 2D game ever, so of course it is.

This is really clicking as I’m unlocking abilities :wub:

Taken the best bits from Ori and the Blind Forest and Hollow Knight and pretty much nailed it. So far I’m enjoying it just as much as the first one, might surpass it by the end.

I love how it builds on the original Ori and takes it in a slightly different direction. Both games have quite a different tone to me and I appreciate that a lot.

I prefer it to the first but it's close.

The combat in this one just feels amazing, but I also loved the simplicity of the combat in the first one though! The different areas in this one really pop, the graphics are just astounding, the HDR is really good too, in the woods the light reflecting off the moon was just amazing. I think these two games are definitely my favourite in the Metroidvania style games (which this seems to loosely fit into).

Can’t stop playing this :wub:

Just got the last wisp so I guess I’m not that far off the end of the main portion of the game sadly, plenty to go back and collect if I want though...... :D Definitely going to explore Midnight Burrows before I finish the main story anyway as I imagine that’ll be fun to explore, even if to just prolong my time with this.
