Definitive Edition clearly exists to ensure the best possible version of Ori and the Blind Forest is on the market, and Moon Studios has undoubtedly succeeded in that regard. If you haven't made the time for this magical Metroidvania yet, this is the way to go. If you already own a copy of the original game and are itching for another playthrough, readmission is worth the $5 upgrade. The new additions don't extend the length of the game by much, but they do freshen things up and breathe some new life into an already wonderful experience.

Ori and the Blind Forest was great when it first came out and it’s still great in the Definitive Edition. It has an emotionally effective story and gameplay that is worth the price of admission alone. Once finished you’ll come back to these comments to connect with someone who also understands the journey you took. Now go save Nibel in what’s sure to be a classic in the platforming genre.

The game is now more accessible for those who had trouble with it the first time, while also providing more of a challenge for those who were begging for it. While the game may not reinvent the wheel when it comes to metroidvanias, there is no questioning that it nails the genre and the Definitive Edition makes it an even sweeter ride. Whether you’ve never played the game before or are eager to check out what’s new, Ori and the Blind Forest: Definitive Edition is an experience you’ll be sure to love.
