The little spirit Ori is no stranger to peril, but when a fateful flight puts the owlet Ku in harm’s way, it will take more than bravery to bring a family back together, heal a broken land, and discover Ori’s true destiny. From the creators of the acclaimed action-platformer Ori and the Blind Forest comes the highly anticipated sequel. Embark on an all-new adventure in a vast world filled with new friends and foes that come to life in stunning, hand-painted artwork. Set to a fully orchestrated original score, Ori and the Will of the Wisps continues the Moon Studios tradition of tightly crafted platforming action and deeply emotional storytelling.

More to say on this one, but I was quite underwhelmed by this one. I'm a fan of a game narrowing in on what makes it unique and was hoping for more platforming and less combat. The move to more combat and less platforming is not something that worked out for me.
Solid exploration game, in the end. Not too sure about the game balance though - in the beginning it felt fiddly and a little frustrating but I could practically fly by the end. The combat still felt imprecise and lacking impact throughout, but it was at least better than the predecessor. Not enough buttons to assign to abilities, either. Really nice graphics, especially once they fixed up the performance, and good sound. Looking forward to what comes next from Moon.
i couldn't click with the first game, but loved everything about this game! the graphics and music, the platforming, the new combat and charms, the bosses (excluding the auto-scroller bosses), they were all fantastic. this game didn't waste much time giving you the majority of the important movement upgrades, which them design their levels with few restrictions. the only downside of that is the later upgrades you earn are most relevant in their respective areas, and not as relevant elsewhere in the world. so the ability-based progression isn't as smooth as it is in other games. but overall, this is a fantastic package and a strong recommend for all types of gamers!
