Ori and the Blind Forest: Definitive Edition - Análisis

“Ori was created by Moon Studios, an independent and external studio. They came to us with the desire to bring the original Ori to Switch. We thought it made sense and we are happy to work with them to bring their game to Switch. " These were the statements of Aaron Greenberg, General Manager of Xbox Games Marketing, for the MCV medium.

In this way so natural, so human, so simple, a new title, hitherto exclusive to Microsoft, comes to the Nintendo hybrid. Ori and the Blind Forest lands in its definitive edition to the Switch catalog to keep Cuphead company that already saw the light a few months ago. A clear example that are times to add, not divide , which are times to enjoy the last days of this generation without worrying about what the neighbor does or does not do. It is time to see with our own eyes and admire everything that video games offer us today, that the mist does not prevent us from seeing the forest.

Dead forest, trapped in the dark with our only presence as hope. As we already brought in our analysis of this Definitive Edition a little over three years ago, Ori and the Blind Forest shows its beauty in the simplicity of a straightforward, unadorned, and without paraphernalia story. The eternal battle between light and shadow, between good and evil. Story that starts from the orphanhood on which our character will begin his journey to end the status quo in which the forest is plunged. This does not imply that our adventure is empty in approach. A simple but effective narrative, direct and full of sensations, motivating with total subtlety such primary emotions as sadness, love or fear when losing a loved one.

With this premise our adventure begins. Everything in this Definitive Edition of Switch remains intact compared to the original version. At the controls of our orphan character we will have to visit all the corners of the forest to, first, understand what has led to this situation and, unsurprisingly, to restore it. As we mentioned, his script does not boast in content, but it does surprise in the way of empathizing with the player and getting excited, a formula that several years after its release is still in top shape and is one of the main pillars of the work of Moon Studio.

During this Metroidvania-style adventure we will visit caves, mountains, forests and caves fighting against the terrain and the diabolical beings that inhabit it. But we will not be alone for it. In fact, our best company will be our powers and abilities. We can shoot down enemies with the enigmatic orb of light as a throwing weapon but only at a certain distance. As we advance in our exploration and in our adventure we will reach forest areas that will allow us to unlock new abilities . Ori's level design also continues to shine at an outstanding level even after the boom that the genre has experienced in recent years, with dozens of titles of remarkable quality.

We highlight its design because it puts the player's ability before artificial difficulty. Unlike other metroidvania, the game will subtly invite us to follow the right path through narrative and acquired skills, allowing us to focus on the real challenges of gameplay . Challenges in the form of impossible platforms that have made our hair stand on end by having sensations similar to those we experienced with Celeste. However, Ori and the Blind Forest incorporates an added difficulty. While we will not reach the level of deaths we experience with Celeste - we hope not to die 500 times on one level - we will have to be very cautious with our actions.

Unlike most other works of today, Ori and the Blind Forest does not have automatic saving, in fact, we must use our energy to generate saving points that, in turn, will serve to acquire new improvements. As you can imagine, this energy is not infinite, so in most cases we will have to optimize it and value each step we take. Is it more worth taking the risk of discovering a new area, or should we seek energy and generate a new save point sooner? The price to pay is the highest possible, our time. Forgetting to create a new save point or simply risking too much can lead to repeating all that progress. How each one manages their frustration can become an incentive or the greatest mole that can be attributed to Ori and the Blind Forest.

If to all this we are agile at the controls and we use our energy with intelligence, our adventure can last between 8 and 10 hours . There will always be incentives beyond the story, such as getting all the elements hidden in the map or all the skills. Its duration has been one of the most controversial issues, but certainly a formula that manages to keep the rhythm is preferable to having dozens of bland secondary schools, who only manage to break the dive and dynamite all the generated rhythm. For this reason, its adjusted duration is seen more as a virtue than as an inconvenience . Games like the recent Sayonara Wild Hearts advocate condensed proposals that, in this way, manage to convey a direct and unobstructed message that manages to excite and empathize with anyone behind the controls. Very successful resource and should be used more.

And although Ori and the Blind Forest has left its mark on us for its script and gameplay, the artistic section shines with the same or even greater intensity. As if from a hand-painted canvas or from one of those Disney movies of yesteryear, each Sprite in Ori and the Blind Forest is a minuscule piece of art in its entirety. From the scenes, to the characters or their animations, they fit with such verve that we will have the feeling of being in front of an animated film . Gareth Coker took care of the rest in his work to compose a soundtrack that still resonates like an echo on YouTube present in dozens of videos, so it is not only a bucolic BSO full of melancholy and introspection, but an excellent dish to enjoy in any time either while working in the office, reading or, as in our case, writing.

"We have worked with this engine for about 10 years with different games and the new sequel, so many of the optimizations applied for Ori Will of the Wisps have served to optimize the version of Ori and the Blind Forest for Switch.", Confirms Thomas Mahler, CEO and Game Director of Moon Studio. And indeed, the Switch version is the best version to date, going from 30 fps to 60 fps with a resolution of 720p in the portable version and 1080p in the desktop version via dock.

If being able to enjoy Ori and the Blind Forest in portable mode and at the highest quality is still not an excuse, this Definitive Edition also incorporates a new additional play area , a Theater mode that will allow us to enjoy video scenes whenever we want, as well as new modes of difficulty for the most demanding.
