Review: Ori and the Will of the Wisps is a truly breathtaking Metroidvania

A gorgeous platformer that builds on the original without ruining what made it so special. If you have Game Pass, there’s no reason not to play this.

  • Looks astonishing
  • One of the most accomplished soundtracks in gaming
  • An enormous world map and a huge number of skills to unlock
  • The new focus on combat may annoy some platforming purists
5 / 5
