Ori and the Will of the Wisps Review

The Moon Studios development team gave us a magical experience in 2015 with Ori and the Blind Forest, which we consider one of our best experiences for this generation and one of our favorite games ever, now after 5 years we get a new part entitled Ori and the Will of the Wisps and this part has passed its share. From postponements during the development process and after a long wait we had the opportunity to return to that magical world for another adventure, how was the result?

Owl Ku

The story introduces us to a new character, the Ku owl, which grew up between Ori and her family. As it grew, Ku had problems with the flying ability and here, Ori tries to help her friend to fly and during this process a strong storm is pulling Ori and Ku to a distant land called Niwan, from here you will know On the residents of Niwan and you are trying to restore the shine to their world, which was dominated by chaos and destruction, as is the case in the previous part, the story here is simple, but it focuses more on providing an emotional experience, as it informs us about the stories of the different creatures who live in Niwan and the hardships they have gone through over the years, the spontaneity of the characters and the simplicity of the story. We have a beautiful and simple message that the player receives through a limited number of texts and many cinematic clips full of feelings that increase your attachment to these characters.

Artistic Direction

Ori and the Will of the Wisps is a verse in beauty like its predecessor, so the wonderful artistic direction does not get bored of it, as Niwan is more diverse in its environments full of various beautiful colors, and the dedication to work on this version is no less than its predecessor. Trees, plants, and creatures to present a vibrant world with its various details, throughout this journey you will listen to sweet melodies that are no less wonderful than the previous version, and you will know well that you are entering a sad emotional scene or another joyful as soon as you realize the change of melody.

The last part was distinguished by providing a smooth and homogeneous gameplay experience in its elements, and this part maintains this homogeneity, but it takes the experience to another level as well as it introduces you to several new abilities commensurate with the area you are exploring to help you overcome its obstacles such as the ability to dash in the sand or jump high when leaving the water Despite the relatively large number of new capabilities, the development team has done a diligent work to keep the experience homogeneous, the designs of the environments and the challenges of jumping between platforms are elaborately designed and take advantage of the new capabilities effectively, as these challenges are different in their nature in different regions, which gives a welcome diversity.

Battles in the game

Ori and the Will of the Wisps Review

The battles in the game have met the biggest changes, as Ori gets a number of new weapons such as sword, shooter, fire bombs and other new weapons and abilities that can be used. There is a new system to add certain preference, such as the ability to climb walls or the ability to gain more energy or auras (currency used to buy And the development of capabilities) of opponents in exchange for becoming more dangerous and other abilities or preferences that you will change, which gives you greater freedom to follow the style of play that suits you. The challenge in the game is measured and begins to escalate gradually that suits your accustomed to experience and the biggest challenge presented in battles are confronting bosses which rely heavily on accuracy and gives the desired challenge to those looking for it.

Missions

In this version, there are several side tasks and challenges that focus on different aspects of the experience. If you are interested in learning more about the characters, you will find the side tasks in which you help the world's inhabitants solve a problem, such as finding a lost item or finding an object that meets their needs, and these tasks will usually lead you. 

To other missions that help you more to get to know these characters and give an additional value to the experience, in case you want to refine your skills and reactions, you have the challenges of the temples that test your fighting abilities and we also have time challenges that test your skills in maneuvering and jumping between platforms and show you your results compared to the rest of the players.

Ori and the Will of the Wisps Review

Despite the perfection and beauty offered by the game, it suffers from a number of annoying technical problems that are difficult to overlook despite the beauty of the experience. There are many occasions in which the game will stop and then return to work, and opening the menu to look at the map or change your capabilities will be Accompanied by a slowdown in the game’s work as well, it happened that the game stopped working completely and we had to restart it a few times and we can say that all the problems of the game are technical problems that can be addressed, but what prevents this unique experience from getting the full mark in our perspective.

I finished the story within 12 hours with medium difficulty and with a rate of 78%. To end the experiment at 99%, it took about 16 hours, which is a suitable life for the MetroidVina game. Ori and the Will of the Wisps is the perfect sequel to our magic 5 years ago and is one that we will undoubtedly include in the list of our favorite games.

Ori and the Will of the Wisps Review

Ori and the Will of the Wisps

  • Beautiful artistic direction and an enchanting world pulsing to life - a beautiful emotional story supported by sweet melodies - smooth and homogeneous gameplay, whether during jumping between platforms or during battles - a balanced difficulty that escalates with time and satisfying boss confrontations.
  • Technical problems that cause the game to slow down or stop working on many occasions, and sometimes cause it to stop completely.
  • Ori and the Will of the Wisps is a magical experience with its various elements, sweet melodies, a magical world, and smooth play experience, despite its current technical problems, but it is the sequel that the previous part deserves and is among our favorite games for this year and this generation without a doubt.
