To close on a low point is a real shame, but the extreme highs carry Ori and the Blind Forest through to greatness, if not quite flawlessness. Rarely is a game able to be so devilish in its gameplay yet so touching in its story. For those willing to embrace the difficulty, Moon Studios has created one of the few must-have Xbox One console exclusives.

It’s the kind of story that knows how to find the soft spots in even the most hardened of gamers (like me!), and once it digs its adorable claws into you, it’s polished enough to rarely break the immersion it inspires. Ori and the Blind Forest had me coming back just to reexperience all the wonder and fun I had along the way the first time through, and it’s one of my favorite titles of 2015 so far.

It's important, however, not to mistake Ori and the Blind Forest for being simply beautiful. It certainly is--but it is also unceasingly clever. It consistently surprises you with new tricks: gravitational divergences, new ways to move through its spaces, and carefully designed levels that require you to think quickly and respond.
